I don't follow sports but I found this headline interesting for one reason. My wife and I have friends visiting from Japan next month and wanted to see Ichiro play when Seattle visits Baltimore next month. Ichiro has played in Seattle for what, 12 years? And now, the month before our friends travel from the other side of the world to see him, he gets traded! They may have already bought the tickets too! Mr. and Mrs. Yamada are really nice people and I hate seeing this happen but you gotta' admit it's kinda' funny. I've already checked and if they REALLY want to see him in NY, the YankMees aren't at home again until the 13th against Tejas. Side Note: If you have a Canon Copier, Mr. Yamada probably wrote the software for it.
