AL All Star Secret? Ichiro's Plethora of Profanity Speech!

Postby acsguitar » Tue Jul 15, 2008 1:29 pm

Apparently Ichiro gives a speech every year before the All - Star game loaded with profanity. Apparently this is now considered good luck and pumps everyone up.

Per Ichiro:

“I know how important it is to the game,” Ichiro said. “I’m more concentrated at that moment than I am in the game.”


Per David Ortiz:

“It’s why we win,” David Ortiz said.


Here's a link to the article http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=j ... &type=lgns

Ichiro was asked how much he believes the speech has contributed to the AL dominance that has stretched more than a decade now.

“I’ve got to say over 90 percent,” he said.



I've seen this speech before but I don't remember where! Man I wish I could find it!

I heard Jeter's profanity range is worse then his fielding range.

It's the last All-Star Game in Yankee Stadium, so I doubt somebody from outside The Big Apple, let alone The Big Continent could possibly understand the implications that come into play here. Derek Jeter is the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be, and Ichiro is a classless, arrogant punk if he thinks that it is his speeches that propel the AL to victory and not The Captain's will, determination, and pumping of the fist. I've lost all respect for Ichiro. :-t

Ortiz thinks Ichiro does it too but of course he is a Red Sox. You are just angry because the Mets don't have anyone on the AL All star team :)

The Fist pump is extremely powerful just ask Tiger

If the speaker was given by the worst player at the all-star game I wouldn't argue with you.
