That’s great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes and aeroplanes, Ichiro in a Yankee trade…
One of my first thoughts was “Will they give him Bernie Williams’ #51?”, and we later found out that the answer is “No”. And does that mean they will eventually retire the number? I hope so. I want them to retire Bernie and Jeter and Rivera and Posada! I want to see starting players wearing numbers in the 40’s and 50’s! I want to see hexadecimal uniform numbers in my lifetime!
A tournament a tournament a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline
What kind of dumbass catchphrase will Yankee Radio Irritant John Sterling come up with? My best guess is “A mighty blow… by Ichiro!” I’m looking forward to rolling my eyes at whatever he comes up with.
Danny Farquhar? The Mariners traded for Danny Farquhar? Seriously? The guy who’s been through waivers twice this season? The guy the Mariners could’ve picked up on waivers twice? I know it’s a 2-month rental of a declining player, but still…
Selfish thought and shameless plug: Does this mean that someone’s going to buy the Ichiro cards I have out on COMC? Plug plug plug – Five different inexpensive cards, all discounted at least 69%? – Plug plug plug. For a future Hall Of Famer, the dude does not seem to sell that well. Maybe the Yankee connection will change that.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jellybean, boom.
I’d include more lines from the song if I could make out what Michael Stipe is saying.
