Ichiro esky cloese up

I’ve got a little piece on our old pal Ichiro in the new issue of Esquire.

The editor’s were cool enough to include me in their “Contributors” page. They asked if I wanted to be photographed or illustrated. Duh—illustrated. Okay, so the results are, well, interesting, but what the hell? You only live once!

Wow, that's so awesome! Congrats, man!!

The illustration..Niedermeyer from Animal House? The guy who used to do sports on the nightly news in Baltimore? Shaven headed Jeff Hornacek?

Well done Alex. And I hope Ichiro can play until 50.

Cool. Nice job. I think OK Jazz wins with The King and I meets Jeff Hornacek observation.

Niedermeyer! Classic. Speaking of Ichi, did you see this?

[0] Thanks Alex. Great idea for feature. I'm dying to read more, but I couldn't find it at Esquire.com. A little help?
