There was magic in the air before Game 6 of the Japan Series.

Or at least that's what the Plant brothers, the die-hard Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles fans who make up one half of the Japanese-Canadian rock band Monkey Majik, were hoping was the case.

The brothers, Blaise and Maynard, were on the field during the Eagles' batting practice before Game 6, and neither had any doubt that Saturday was the night the Eagles would bring a Japan Series title to Tohoku for the first time.
