I love it. He looks like he's squinting because he lost his glasses.

Yep, some say that the Yomiuri Giants are the Yankees of the NPB, and the Tigers are the Red Sox of the NPB. They've only won the Japanese equivalent of the World Series once, in 1985. So it's not a huge similarity. I've got a Masayuki Kakefu jersey, one of the most famous Hanshin Tigers players. He was on that team in 1985, the team that incited the curse.

I got a good laugh out of this when I first read it. This bodes well in my effort to destroy Wendy, the redhead girl, because of her uncanny resemblance to the girl from Spiderman.

She just ruffles my feathers.

I thought it was funny that he was standing upright at the bottom. And, putting the statue in front of their stadium is a great idea!!

I'm glad they finally found Colonel. I'd consider myself a Hanshin Tigers fan if I watched Japanese baseball, simply because I'm a Detroit Tigers fan. Besides, Cecil Fielder played for them. :smile:

I think KFC should donate the statue to the cubs since they embrace this curse thing. To help lift their curse, the cubs should cook the statue and feed the "essence" of Col. Sanders to the players. Hmmm, tastes like chicken.... http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-merv/chilli.gif

They should just hire Link from the Adventures of Zelda games. Nobody knows how to sprinkle magic to lift a curse like that little elf.
