    I hope it will be another good pitching duel. And also I hope that Shinnosuke Abe could be there to wake up Sawamura if he needs to be awaken. Kyojin will rule. To Fighter fans: I wish that you get twice what you want me to get. I have good memories from Japan, especially from Higashihiroshima.
