Japan-est Thing Ever: Girl From “The Ring” Throws Out First Pitch At Ballgame

Let’s take a moment to check in on our old pal Japan, just to make sure it’s, you know, still super Japan and stuff. Oh good! Here’s a video of Sadako, the longhaired ghostly character from Ringu (Japan’s The Ring, if the letter ‘u’ throws you way the hell off), throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a Nippon Ham Fighters baseball game. In costume. In 2012. At the end of the video, the catcher takes off his mask and it turns out he’s the kid from The Grudge and then he goes “Meowww” (which means “nice pitch” in boy-cat): For the record, the Nippon Ham Fighters is still my favorite team name in sports; “Nippon Ham” is the sponsor and “Fighters” is the nickname, but when you say it out loud, it reeeally sounds like the team’s nickname is the “Ham Fighters” and I imagine a cartoon ham with a curly mustache old timey boxing gloves.
