Magia Day 2069 a fond farewell to Class of 2070

Mitakihara wide receiver Steve Takakamo knows the art of winning better than anyone he has a vendetta with. The offensive captain of Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi will be performing his curtain call on Saturday at the Sakura Bowl in Mitakihara Town, B.C. in Magia Day 2069 against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The clash is a battle between No. 1 vs. No. 2 and Madoka's BCS future is on the line this week.

"This is one of those 'win and you're in scenarios,'" said Takakamo to the press following practice at Hakurei Centre. "We know what we need to do, and that's to beat Notre Dame and beat them real bad to impress the pollsters and maybe the sportswriters that determine who wins the Heisman. All the players are quietly confident. They don't have January on their minds; they have this game to focus on.

"Are we going to be overconfident? No, I don't think so. I mean, we have the right amount of confidence but at the same time, we temper that with a good amount of respect for the skills of our opponent. We want to then take the game to them by playing off what they can do on the field. Some of their players used to be my teammates at Mitakihara Secondary, so there's a bit of familiarity there.

"What am I going to miss from Mitakihara? Hmmm...I guess it would be the teachers here. They're fair but firm. They want us to succeed and if we're willing to take the initiative, they become really approachable. I've networked with a lot of great professors here at this school and when my pro career is finished, I'll need their help so I can continue my career in communications.

"I have a short term memory, yeah. I don't remember a lot from the previous seasons except that we went unbeaten, won every game, answered the media with respect and professionalism and looked like we've been here before. I think a short-term memory is great because you tend to not dwell on the mistakes you made and you look forward to what happens now, so it's a good thing.

"I think I mentioned this before, but I don't think anybody cares about what happens in January, whether we play in a bowl game in January or December. What matters is that we win this week for my teammates and all the seniors and then we let the rest sort itself out. No one is caring about what happens to UNLV or Baylor. We don't worry about them unless one of those teams is who we're facing in our last game."
