You Don’t Say?

Here’s a cute book of quotes from Ichiro–Baseball is Just Baseball: The Understated Ichiro. An ideal holiday stocking stuffer.

I really hope we bring him back next year. He proved the doubters wrong, and the place is well-suited to his swing. He is a little odd, granted, but way less annoying than Swisher.

I think he wants to be back on the West Coast, and play for a winner. .... I think SF or LA would suit him well.

1) Gallagher smashing watermelons is less annoying that Swish.

Oh .. and happy 30th birthday to Granderson and 39th to Ichiro!

Just walked by Ichiro on Friday. Turns out he lives right near where I work. Some car pulled up as I was walking by a very expensive building. A Japanese guy jumps out and grabs a few bags while a taller Japanese guy gets out and waits on the sidewalk. At first, I was like "why isn't the taller guy helping the other guy? What a jerk." Then I realized he looked familiar and realized it was Ichiro. He has a lot more gray hair that I would have thought. I think this last series aged him.

So I googled him to see if it was really him in that building and it was.

That rent is a measly $40k/month. But given his salary, that means an equivalent guy who makes $100k/year would pay $300 a month. So he is actually being frugal!

[6] Geez, over twice the size of my house. 2 months rent could buy my house.

But I've got a basement workshop. And a backyard for the dogs.
