Whatchamacallit 65: Doosan Professional Baseball Club Towel

Doosan Professional Baseball Club

In early April 2014 I visited Seoul, a city that I can easily imagine living in. I’ve actually visited the city twice.

I’ve told any number of people that if you told me today that I would have to move to South Korea tomorrow that I would say, “Wow – that will be challenging but doable.” The other half of that observation is that if you told me that tomorrow I would be moving to Japan, a wonderful place to visit, I would say, “Wow – do I have to?”

But that is a digression: this is about the Doosan Professional Baseball Club Towel that I have hanging in my hallway – such an awkward name, when they go by the name Doosan Bears in colloquial terms.

I went to the game with two college students who were practicing their English – which made the experience more fun. (As I recall, they did not pick up on the fact that I like boys and thought that I was admiring the cheerleaders – the truth was I was still taken by the absurdity of the circus that is attending baseball in Asia.

Remember, I said “cheerleaders” – what baseball game has cheerleaders? Certainly none in America.

The towel hangs right below my Hiroshima Carp towel – so I see it frequently, thus a small trigger taking me back to Seoul and the good times that I have had while visiting there.

During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
