"Oh hey," I thought. "I've heard of Kamaishi. I wonder how they're doing?" Kamaishi was heavily damaged by the tsunami.
It turns out they were doing a piece on their rugby team, the (now somewhat ironically named) Seawaves in their opening match of the season.
"Oh HEY!" I thought. "I know those people!" Okay, not really know, but I have heard of them, and got to know about them through Fresne's friend's post about her experiences of the tsunami in Kamaishi. It was surreal seeing these people I read about from a friend of a friend on the nightly news, wondering if any of them were people she had mentioned.
In case anyone was wondering, the Seawaves won. Which is very cool, since a lot of people went to watch them play as a distraction from the difficulties of current daily living.
