Goodbye Ichiro

Monday July 23, 11:02 p.m.

Well, it was definitely a special moment. I don't know how often it's happened, but for a star player to be traded to the very team that your now former team is playing against on the same night as your trade....

I didn't think it would happen, but Ichiro the samurai did show up. I saw the moment. He was in the New York pinstripes as he walked over to home plate. The entire audience at Safeco stood up in unison and applauded, and then Ichiro bowed three times before getting his first base hit as a Yankee. Classy!
