04/29/2004: "basketball."

Basketball commentary takes on a whole new dimension of breathless urgency when spoken in fluid, rapid Hebrew. Today I watched Team Tel Aviv get trounced by Team Moscow on Israeli television at that new falafel joint near the Voice offices. (The baklava there is brilliant--I recommend it.) Generally I go for the underdog, but I couldn't help but root for the Russians, mostly because they have the cutest red uniforms, but also because there's a certain pathos (ah that particularly Russian pathos!) to the cheers of Team Moscow fans. Making sense of the stats scrolling on the bottom of the screen was a little tough since they were all written in Hebrew, but I think all NBA stats should be written up in Hebrew; sports stats are usually pointless by definition, so that extra layer of incomprehensibility adds an air of mystery to the proceedings for sure.

Geeta, did you read that article in the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday about how ESPN has to find ways to rework play-by-plays of American sports games for Asian audiences (specifically in China, India, and Thailand)? I recommend tracking it down, it's pretty interesting and amusing. There's one bit in particular where they talk about this woman whose job it is to come up with Chinese name equivalents for American players, and the stress she was under to translate the roster of 64 teams in the matter of a week for March Madness.
