Onsen anyone?

It'd be nice to relax in an onsen, especially at Ginzan Onsen. Man, that was a real nice couple of days when I went in '05.

But I digress. We're here to review Yamagata-ken.

3 of the top 4 teams here are no surprise. Haguro claims the #1 seed. Sakata Minami earns the #2. Nihon Yamagata who made that deep run in 2006 is #3.

The last team to make it not from this trio was Tokaidai Yamagata... back in 1995.

The other schools will have their work cut out for them. Perhaps the best chance will be in the 2nd weekend where these teams play 2 games in 3 days. But that's why they play the game, right?

Ah, it would be so nice to soak in a bath right now.
