Sports are back in South Korea! Get ready for some egregious bat flips and unabashed corporate sponsorship, ladies!

Seeing as most of these games will be broadcast live at or after 1am CT, and then re-broadcast the next afternoon, and we are mostly working from home, I’ve decided to run our AoG KBO Game Threads in the afternoon slots on all but Saturday’s game (because it’s airing at a reasonable time).

Tuesday 5/5: NC Dinos at Samsung Lions—2pm CT ESPN2

Wednesday 5/6: Doosan Bears vs. LG Twins—1pm CT ESPN2

Thursday 5/7: NC Dinos at Samsung Lions—2pm CT ESPN2

Friday 5/8: Kia Tigers at Samsung Lions—2pm CT ESPN2

Saturday 5/9: NC Dinos at LG Twins—9pm CT ESPN2

...and now what you all came her for... MY BAT FLIPS ARE DISRESPECTFUL TO DIRT! CAN’T YOU SEE THAT I AM SERIOUS?!?!

Suk-Min Park, motherfathers!!!

*Note: South Korea aggressively implemented a world-class test and trace program, and have recently achieved no new cases of Covid-19. This is why they are the first country back w/r/t sports, and why they are safely able to resume semi-normalcy (with masks and temperature checks errywhere). Demand better from your government.

**Addendum: South Korea also has some pretty bad-ass film-makers. Check out the films of Bong Joon Ho (Parasite, Snowpiercer, Memories of Murder, etc.), Chan-Wook Park (Oldboy; I’m a Cyborg, But That’s Okay; The Handmaiden, etc.) et al, as their films are as vicious as a foul ball bat flip.

Miss Jackson, if you’re nasty!
