My favorite Yankee gets married

I love his prepared statement:

“I, Hideki Matsui, am getting married. I have decided to spend my whole life with her,” Matsui said in a statement released at the Yankees’ training camp in Florida, Jiji Press reported.

Hat-tip Peter.

I love this line in the story…

Matsui has won wide respect on both sides of the Pacific for his mild manner and hard work ethic, although he once admitted that he had one vice — an extensive collection of pornography.

Yankees suck.

Yeah, I like that statement too. It’s like he thinks nobody will know who he is if he doesn’t tell us.

*someone – you do?
There is another line I noticed: about being attracted to the woman’s “discretion”.

“*someone – you do?”

Sure. You don’t think its presence in that story is hilarious?

In case you’re interested in his famous porn collection, it started because Matsui was forbidden from having a girlfriend when he played in Japan because his team had strict rules against that, lest the players be distracted. I’ve read that he trades videos with reporters.

*someone – yes, it’s hilarious. And what he chosen to emphasize in description of the bride as “woman with discretion” makes it even more so.
I was interested in your loving that angle…
