Google Image Search: Word & Picture #47

Here is how this works:
I put in a word into the Google image search.
I post the picture of the first thing that comes back.

Today's Word:
"Hiroshima Carp mascot"

Today's Picture:

Yup, that was the costume I wore for a year in Japan. I don't know if that is me or not... probably not. It was hot & stinky in that costume, but I loved it. That picture was taken at Hiroshima Shimin Kyujo... or Hiroshima Municipal Stadium. That looks like the outfield bleachers where the yell leaders sat. There were many drunks in that section of the stadium. They were great.

The Carp is my team. They are the Kansas City Royals of professional Japanese baseball. Go Carp.

So... that's just an old Philly Fanatic costume that someone found on eBay, right?

Looks just like it... except blue. There was a pink one, too. Pretty sweet.
