Money quote from a Ministry of Education spokesman:

Looking forward to seeing some good photos!
I’m just bummed I couldn’t buy a D70 on time for this. Priorities, priorities.

No, we left him with one of Merin’s friends in Sakai because I didn’t know what to do with him during the tournament.
I think sports with naked people sell themselves, really. Too bad they don’t have hot-chick sumo wrestling. I’d buy season tickets for that.
