Seattle Mariners

Your secret is safe with me, Ichiro

R. LeBaronCorrespondent IMarch 5, 2008

Dear Ichiro,

Few people are cool enough to be known by only one name. You make it look easy.

You even have your first name on the back of your Seattle Mariners jersey. No one else would dare try a move like that.

You are powerful. I believe you invented Sudoku.

You are probably secretly worried you will turn out like Fabio or Yanni or Alf.

But you will not become one of those flash-in-the-pan-one-name-only-people. I believe you will be the next Cher... or Batman!

Until then, your secret is safe with me.

Sincerely,

R. LeBaron
