Ichiro and Costas

It’s the weekend, so here’s a frivolous link to distract you from rampant trade talk.

Bob Costas was interviewed on the Daily Show, and much of his talk with Jon Stewart was devoted to Ichiro. I don’t have a direct link, but go to their video page and click the Costas interview link. Matters of great weight and import are discussed, such as Ichiro’s favorite expressions in English.

As Jim Rome might say in a different context, trust me, it’s funny.

    I was watching this episode on TiVo a few hours ago, and it is pretty funny.

    “Bob, Bob, I have a better one!”

    Well if Rome thinks it’s funny then…

    Thanks for posting that. The Daily Show is my favorite show so it’s pretty cool Ichiro came up in conversation.

    Anybody know what Ichiro said in the interview that they were talking about?

    I can’t believe Costas is 53.

    Quick google search got for me:

    “It’s as hot as two rats fucking in a sock in August in Kansas City.”


    “August in Kansas City is hotter than two rats in a fucking sock.”

    I like the first one better myself.

    I watched the 11:00 pm show Thursday and laughed my ass off, so when the repeat came on Friday, I had the spouse watch it. It was still funny. So do we have any ideas who his “bad teammate” was. My money’s on either Boone or Cammie.
