Well I got selected by Mizuno
to be a founding member of the Mezamashii Project
. In Japanese, the word mezamashii means "brilliant." Previously my Japanese was limited to words learned from Chris Farley's Japanese Game Show
skit on SNL. Thanks to Mizuno it has now expanded.
I'm not sure why I got selected, might have been my stellar running resume, my good looks, or perhaps because I went to college with the local Mizuno representative. I'll let you decide.
