Last year during the WBC, he said that Japan would beat Korea so badly that the Koreans wouldn't be able to play Japan for another 30 years, or something along those lines. My girlfriend, who is Korean, was so upset at those comments that she wouldn't shut up about it for 2 weeks, not to mention cursing at him during the entire game. In the beginning of this season he made that "I plan to face him (Matsuzaka) with the zeal of a challenger.'' comment.
Ichiro said that it would take Korea about another 30 years until they are on the same level as Japan in baseball.
WBC was wack. I went to 2 games. both of the Korea VS Japan. there were 3 games total between the 2 nations. Korea won the first 2. Then Japan won the last one (i was pretty bummed). and Japan advances!?!? thats crap.
