Returning Rakuten Eagles ace Masahiro Tanaka has launched his Youtube channel, which quickly brought some comments from his peers I thought were worth sharing.
The news in Japan Thursday of Tanaka’s return sent a buzz through Japan, and Tanaka’s venture into Youtube, titled “Ma-kun Channel Masahiro Tanaka” was apparently a little bland for veteran Yutube Yu Darvish, who replied, “Don’t you mean God’s channel?”
By 9 a.m. Sunday morning in Japan, Tanaka’s channel had two videos, one of his Saturday presser, English transcript, and another private video of him on the way to the press conference in Tokyo and 68,300 subscribers.
Darvish then retweeted it saying he recalled somewhere saying it should be called the channel “Masahiro Tanaka’s God Channel,” which drew a response from irrepressible former Hanshin Tigers closer Kyuji Fujikawa.
“‘Masahiro Tanaka’s God Channel!’ what a great name for a channel.”–Kyuji Fujikawa
