    Respect

    An example of why I hold the Japanese in high regard was shown in the newspaper earlier this week. Ichiro Suzuki was traded to the New York Yankees by Seattle, and the next day he led off the batting order for New York against Seattle in Seattle. The crowd gave him a standing ovation and he removed his hat and bowed to the crowd. A great show of respect from the fans and from the the player. That is my idea of sportsmanship!

    I'm with you on that Spike. I'm tired of owners and fans kicking someone in the back on the way out....ie the Knicks and Jeremy Lin.

    It's tough to see a player you are a fan of move on to another team. You want them to keep doing well, but you hate that they are gone.

    I take my family to see the Mariners play once each summer. It will be different this year without Ichiro, our family's favorite player. The end of an era. We wish him well.

    Seeing Ichiro go is bad enough. Going to the Yankees is downright emetic. ;-)
