Ichiro in the Winter

A couple cool recent finds by the mighty Mighty Flynn… Above, “December 23, 2011 – A young ballplayer is congratulated at the conclusion of the Aichi Toyoyama Cup, an annual youth tournament chaired by Ichiro.”

And below, Ichiro talks about his disappointing 2011 campaign…

I felt desperate last season. That doesn’t happen to me very often. Mental stress is a lot worse than physical stress… If I can get two or three hits every day, I never feel tired. One hit relieves my stress, it’s better than an hour of massage… Sometimes I feel I’m getting older, or more sensitive to what they say on TV. Yes my skin gets dry but it’s a lame conclusion to blame everything on age. People are quick to point to age. Those kinds of people don’t interest me… But if you are going to call yourself a professional, you need to put up results.
