    I burst into laughter when I was reading the following passage from Matsu's Rising Sun:

    However, in the 57 minute, Teruaki Kurobe collected a pass just above the circle over the penalty box, and sent a slant pass that sliced like a surgical instrument through the flat-footed Tokyo defence and found Park Ji-Sung cutting towards net. Park fired a first-time shot that slipped into the low left corner, and Kyoto were in the lead.

    The reason was, Park Ji-sung had actually been found to be "medically flatfooted" when a doctor examined him recently!

    The doctor was astonished that Park could run like he does with such a "disability" b/c normal people with such conditions would have a hard time just walking long distances.

    Anyway, thanks, Matsu, again for a great article, despite your hectic schedule! ;)

    Eusebio was also flatfooted.

    Flatfooted ppl are handicapped to run. But Eusebio and Park overcame that handicap through relentless training.
