So he would save his best pre game speech for the all star game? That makes sense

rylanwouldgo

116 wins in 2001 must have been just for "stats"

Ichiro played in 10 All-Star Games... That's A LOT of profanity

dstiles29

It’s the freaking all star game how the hell do you need to be more relaxed

sguts41

subpopofficial

tball89

mike_the_show

He speaks fluent english he just doesn’t want to be misunderstood in his media.

alexmorrison73

@knuckknuck1 how do you... stat pad hits? was he suppose to just purposely get out?

@knuckknuck1 stat rats only work in the NBA change my mind

@jammie_jammie25 he came into the states in 2001. It takes your brain like 12-14 months to fully accustom to a language when fully engulfed in it like he would’ve been. He does interviews in mandarin because he’s from Asia and obviously news articles are gonna be written about him he’s a god and they worship the ground he walks on.

@mattguz55 @humphrey_2 you literally just tried to bring race and politics into a sports discussion. People like you are part of the issue.

humphrey_2

@the_trey_parr I was the one that said it wasn’t about race so idk what ur problem is

the_trey_parr

@humphrey_2 not you bro, i didn’t even realize it tagged you 😂

humphrey_2

@the_trey_parr no worries, u just had me all confused there

191terry

Doubt it

@knuckknuck1 stfu he's the best lead off hitter this game's seen

robparson23

@jannfinzz one problem. He doesn't speak Mandarin due to the fact that he's not Chinese. He speaks Japanese. To respond to the original comment, I met Ichiro. He speaks perfect English. He doesn't want the media to bother him, so he uses a translator. Plus, he wants to use his hometown language to make his hometown fans happy and remember his roots. He also can speak Spanish. He learned it so he can talk shit to everybody. Dude is a legend

jannfinzz

@robparson23 I’m jealous man I wish I could’ve met ichiro

jannfinzz

@robparson23 I wasn’t sure whether it was Chinese or Japanese so I went with mandarin and I guess I missed:/

robparson23

@jannfinzz it was pretty awesome. He's the man. Super laid back and humble. I met him in the context of a player, too. I was playing professionally and met him with a bunch of other players. He just bullshit with us for like 45 minutes and gave us advice on how to persevere through to the top. Really awesome experience

knuckknuck1

@191terry fuck off. Rickey Henderson. Ass clown

mikeya.edge

saltwater_sebass
