And the Winner Is…

trophy-cup.jpgA special thanks goes out to all of you (four of you to be exact) who participated in the Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back Sweepstakes!  Splendid jobs all around in twisting and grinding those creative muscles to find the quintessential back-to-back-to-back-to-back scenario.  But of course, dear readers, like any other competition, we can only crown one winner.  And this one stood out:

“Back to back to back to back free drinks from a good looking bartender. I think that would be kind of nice.”

For his titillating proposition of getting free booze from a hot drink-slinger, how can we not give the crown to Nate from Cubtastic~?

Though we appreciate the creative efforts of the others (all three of them) we at RSBS have a soft spot in our hearts for beautiful women and of course, alcohol.  You see, it helps us forget about the woes of our favorite teams. 

And we at RSBS do not discriminate against Cub fans… or Yankee fans… or Republicans.  Well, maybe we do against Republicans, but you get the idea.

So, without further ado…

Congratulations, Nate!

Now, on to the prize…

I said we would do whatever we could to make your dream come true.  Unfortunately for you, I’m a liar.  To make this up to Nate — and all of our dear readers — I decided to give you the next best thing: more background on the character of Ichiro Suzuki. 

Ichiro 2.jpgWhy?  Because his face was plastered all over today — that’s why.  Plus, the strong response to an earlier post explaining why Ichiro refuses to speak/learn/utilize the English language demanded that we further explore the psyche of this infamously secretive Japanese superstar.

So, why has Ichiro stayed in US America all this time?  Is it the money?  The fame?  The Starbucks on every corner? 


If your children had to be exposed to this type of educational programming in Japan, you would stay in US America too:

Gross.  That is just plain gross.

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    OH god. Where do you find this stuff? That can’t actually be on TV, can it? Just nasty. Oh yeah, and thanks for the double Yankees tag.

    I think we all know that Ichiro speaks English. In his defense (I may have said this previously) the guy is under a heavy press microscope here and at home and it would be hard, if not impossible, to agree to every interview request and still perform as he does (such as it is). I’m sure many players would like to beg out of interviews by saying that their translator isn’t around and not look like a jerk because there’s always plausible deniability. His face should actually be plastered all over the place because Mike Hargrove’s declaration that he’s ready to manage again only lends credence to the implication that Ichiro forced him out as the Mariners were rolling last season, which is another reason to question Ichiro’s character.

    Neal — It’s real. Sorry. But it is real. Where do I find it? IT finds me unfortunately.
    Nate — Well deserved.
    Paul — The Prince is always a winner in our book. You have a point with Ichiro… but still, I like to play it out to its fullest potential. Gives me a reason to get crazy.
