Amazing Stories



My favorite news story so far this year: Yankee outfielder Hideki Matsui got married a few days ago. At the press conference to announce he was married, instead of bringing a photo, or his new bride, he brought the carnival-quality sketch shown above. On a side note, apparently Matsui is known in Japan as much for his huge porn collection as he is for his bat. And he's known to trade porn regularly with the Japanese reporters that follow him around in the USA. Amazing.

In other Japan-related news, I recently saw the Boredoms live for the first time. I'll you spare the cliches and just say that it was even more amazing than the story above...

Also want to mention my trip to Las Vegas last weekend where I met up with WM, who informed me of the latest ATL classic, "Bitch U Ride that Marta Bus." I suspect it's also amazing.

what a great story. i love how matsui just placed the bet during spring training.

have you watched the video on youtube of "bitch you ride the marta bus"? i'm sure you'd be glad to know the song was created by a couple of "premier dekalb" high school students.
