Almost Ready

I love this story about Seattle Mariners’ phenom Ichiro Suzuki:

Ichiro ran his way around the bases in the first inning with an infield hit and two stolen bases, which put him in position to score on Jose Lopez’s ground ball. The pair of stolen bases broke the Mariners’ franchise record for steals. Ichiro has 292 stolen bases for Seattle. The previous record of 290 was held by Julio Cruz.

Ichiro said Cruz sent him a bottle of cologne at some point in the past, and the odor spelled out the age difference between the two.

“It smelled like old men,” Ichiro said through an interpreter. “I felt the generation gap between us.”

Laundry place not open at 7 a.m. so I got up and went out early for nothing.
