A lot of people say he is the smartest player in the league in terms of knowledge, speaks 5 languages or something like that and can do math like no other.

I have a hard time believing he can speak 5 languages since he can't speak English very well yet. He's been in America for 8 years now and he still needs an interpreter for every interview he does.


Who says he needs an interpreter? Using an interpreter is a great way to ignore the press any time you feel like it. Smart move.

:-? That's exactly what I was thinking as well.


It's an act.

Nothing is as it appears with Ichiro.

If it's after the manager's speech and based upon the description in the article, my guess is no video exists, unless it's on a player's hand-held camcorder. Second-hand descriptions and your own imagination will have to do it for you.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Here's a clip of Ichiro and his "Favorite American Phrase" In an interview with Bob Costas. CAUTION PROFANITY: (not much)

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


You forgot to mention his calm eyes. :-t
