• Who Needs An iPod When You Have Yankees News?

    Posted by on January 24th, 2007 · Comments (3)

    First I saw the story at Peter Abraham’s blog – then I saw this in the Times:

    The Yankees have scheduled a news briefing today to tell about their plans, but all they said yesterday was that it was about an international venture.

    A baseball official, not a travel agent, disclosed that the Yankees were going to China next week.

    This will be an executive journey — Randy Levine, the Yankees’ president; Brian Cashman, the senior vice president and general manager; and Jean Afterman, vice president and assistant general manager.

    They will explore opportunities, both baseball and business. They will establish contacts. They will determine the most likely source of future talent and very likely initiate conversations about future working agreements, like the one they have with the Yomiuri Giants in Japan.

    Great, thanks to the Yankees, I started out today with the Black Eyed Peas “My Humps” stuck in my head, and, now, I have Siouxsie and the Banshees “Hong Kong Garden” stuck in my head.

      There are a lot of different dialects which speak in China,Honk Kong and Taiwan,but Mandarin is the offical language which we use here.

      Baseball for china is still very weak now among Japan,Korea and Taiwan which three storngest baseball teams in whole Asian countries.If they want to find a talent,it still take time waiting for that,But I believe they can find one one day,not now.

      I am a Taiwanese.We have long history background between China and Taiwan.Basically, you can treat us as two different countries,but we have the same history background for a long time.Anyone in china treat taiwanese are their people and Taiwan is part of their country,even though Taiwanese don’t think so.

      Back to Baseball,If you ask anyone watch baseball in China,they all know Chien-Ming Wang.They treat him as their hero as well.During Christmas,I saw a news From China news channel about Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation.The reporter ask Jeter to say Happy Chritmas to Wang.
