Ichiro: I Only Dig Chicks Who Get Off On Watching A Well-Executed Ball Slap
Kinky! No, no, no, it’s not what you think – Ichiro is not some masochistic exhibitionist who slaps his own scrotum in front of willing women for sexual satisfaction – well, at least not that I know of – but the Japanese do have many unique sexual practices, so who’s to say?
What I am referring to is comments Ichiro made in an article in The New York Times regarding how he likes women who can appreciate how he handles his bat…you know, how he’s a swinger…no…man, you know what I mean. Via Big League Stew:
“Chicks who dig home runs aren’t the ones who appeal to me. I think there’s sexiness in infield hits because they require technique. I’d rather impress the chicks with my technique than with my brute strength. Then, every now and then, just to show I can do that, too, I might flirt a little by hitting one out.”
Damn straight, Ichiro. It’s not all about the length, it’s about what you do with it. And Ichiro is correct in asserting that proper technique is very important as well. Who cares how long it is if you can’t keep it in play, am I right?
Wait. Are we even talking about baseball anymore?
