Educational Ichiro Video

What you’re about to witness comes courtesy of loyal NotGraphs reader Reynaldo, who said:

I have no idea what the purpose of this video is, but when I saw it I thought of Notgraphs so here you go.

The purpose of the video, to these eyes at least, is educational. Never, ever test Ichiro’s arm.

Boom, Ichiro. Literally.

Thank you, Reynaldo. Thank you so damn much.

That wasn’t even a good throw. He was practically next to second base.

Probably one of the 5 best music videos I’ve seen. If only Ichiro had been trying to throw out Christopher Walken dancing from second to third…

I am a little disturbed by this video in the sense that Ichiro is from Japan, which has a little history when it comes to nuclear explosions. Maybe it is because I am a history teacher, but I can’t help but feel a little remorse from WW2 still, being an American citizen and knowing the history behind the explosion. Anyhow, I remember that throw, and it was a lazer.

I agree. Not trying to be a party pooper, but the same thing goes through my head. Shivers of Hiroshima. The same way Sterling makes me shake my head when he announces an A Bomb from A Rod as Hideki comes to the plate to bat next.

Anywho… I took no offense, just hesitation. Everything aside, funny vid. The play is still amazing.

Heh. A 10-year old video tells volumes about the state of the Seattle Mariners. Highlights have been hard to come by in the aughts.
