Sendai, as many of you likely know, was devastated by the massive earthquake that struck just off the shore of Japan on Thursday evening/Friday morning. I'm not entirely sure how to describe the feeling these videos elicit from me; sometimes we are confronted with emotions that aren't especially cut and dried. I'd rather not color the reactions of others either; I just know that what happened in Japan could have very easily happened here, and we should try to connect on any possible level with the people of Japan at this moment. We are all part of the same human family after all. And there's not really any better way for many of us to connect with the very people most gravely effected-some of whom, it must be said, almost certainly lost their lives-than to celebrate the passion they showed in support of their club. Because while there are certainly more important things in the world, this is something that we can identify with, something that may not be what defines as as a society, but certainly a part of what defines us as people.
