It Was Four Years Ago Today: Ichiro Hydroplane Night

Standing far above all the crap Mariner promotional giveaways over the decades is this killer Ichiro hydroplane, which, four years ago today, was given out to the game’s first 20,000 fans. Here’s a commercial…

I love how it pairs Ichiro with a cool local sponsor on a toy hydroplane, symbol of the hydro races that have run annually on Seattle’s Lake Washington since 1951. Naturally, Safeco Field’s dot race features animated hydros on the giant scoreboard video screen…

It’s a nice addition to my collection.
