What is it about the murmurings of sports announcers that can make a person so relaxed?
One of my favorite memories of last year involves cruising in my car down a main drag on a Saturday, with the sun warming my car and JM doing the baseball play-by-play on the radio. Yum.
I was thinking about this this morning because I detest football but love hearing John Madden talk. Love it!
Then there's sumo. We watch with the Japanese audio commentary because a) it seems weird to listen to people talking about sumo in English and b) we don't know how to make our television pick up the second audio channel. About half of the time we watch, mrguy starts to drift off. Why? The soothing sound of sports.
In several weeks, we'll be hearing both in Japanese in person.
