After the recent earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent nuclear worries at the Fukushima power plant, the Japanese professional football league ( J-League ) returns to comparative normality on Saturday.

The league has been suspended for one and a half months, due to the tragedy that unfolded from the 11th March onwards. Yet, even the side from Sendai - the city that the earthquake was closest to - are rearing to go again, and scheduled to play their next home game in 6 days time.

An interesting blog from the Guardian on the subject:

It's great to see that the Jogo Bonito can always trump adversity, and offer an outlet for everybody, at any time.
