Ichiro is Cooler than I Thought...

Before I get started, what is the deal with Ichiro's name?  Is it Suzuki Ichiro?  Is it Ichiro Suzuki?  Doesn't he have Ichiro on the back of his jersey?  Why do we butcher the Japanese naming style so much in the US?  Remember BK Kim?  His name was actually Byung-Hyun Kim.  Where the F do people get that second K from?  It's either BH Kim or BK.  That's it.  Stupid shit like that just pisses me off.  I hate people.

Anyway, I found this video of Ichiro from what I assume is some HBO interview with Bob Costas.  In case you couldn't understand him (like me) this was the joke he said:  "August in Kansas City, is hotter than two rats in a fu&$*ng wool sock."

You gotta respect the fact that he grasps English enough to know how to tell the joke with good timing and the fact that it's funny as hell.  Speaking of Ichiro and F bombs, it seems like he has played a big role in pumping up the American League since he first played in 2001 with a crazy pre-game speech.  They haven't lost a game yet.  Check out the story from Yahoo! Sports:

That's classic.
