BSG in Japanese – The Contest


The other week BSG made an appearance on the LA-based Japanese network, UTB Hollywood.  He had a great time, and the segment looks wonderful, but our Japanese is, well… rusty.  Sure we could use Google Translate, but we thought we’d turn to the BSG community to help us out.  So be the first to post a transcript comment on this site following the guidelines on the page, and we’ll send you a signed copy of A Love Letter to Baseball.  Sound good?  Then get translating!


  1. Video segment  is 2 min – translation notes must indicate times (ie. 0:35 – BSG said….)
  2. Minimum of 10 video notes.
  3. Email us at when your post is up (so we can email the winner)
  4. Honor system – if you’re making it up, the Japanese BSG community with rain fire.
  5. 1st post to follow these rules wins!!
