Seattle Mariners: Why We Love Ichiro Suzuki
Ichiro Suzuki has a batting average of .356 for the 2009 MLB season for the Seattle Mariners and can leap in the air to make amazing catches that can determine the outcome of a game, as well as has one of the most memorable batting stances out there. However, that is not why we love Ichiro. We love Ichiro for his wonderful Japanese accent when speaking English in American interviews and his love of American music. On the July 24th game against the Cleveland Indians, which was a heart breaking loss of a 9-0 shut out Indians, there was a moment that entertained all of the attendants of the July 24th game when Ichiro came out to bat with his background song which was a reworked Flo Rida song "Low," where each verse usually concludes with "low, low, low" but now was worked to say "Ichiro, ro, ro, ro." In the Seattle Post-Intelligencer paper apparently our boy Ichiro talked with Flo Rida who was present at the game and greeted the South Florida rapper by saying, "What's up my Fizza?" (From the July 24th article in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer)
Ah, classic American slang influencing our Japanese born star. This however is not the most shocking statement Ichiro has said before. An interview with Bob Costas has been circulating You Tube where Ichiro is asked what is his favorite American expression.

The direct response that our Japanese baseball star gave was this, ""August in Kansas City, is hotter than two rats in a f*cking wool sock." The cameramen and Costas begin to laugh hysterically, remarks such as these makes Ichiro one of the most memorable baseball players out there. We can't wait to hear more American influenced interviews such as these. Good luck on the rest of the season Ichiro!
