Yanks Get Ichiro

Posted: July 23, 2012 in Uncategorized

Coming from a series sweep in Oakland, Yankees have acquired a blockbuster deal from the Mariners. Expect Ichiro to give the Bronx Bombers hitting power at bat. The sluggers go for their 28th championship this season. Ichiro, who had an AL MVP season in 2001 with the Yankees, is a 10-time all star, maintains a career average of .322 while also earning 10-gold glove seasons.

Here are some quoted Tweets from the @yankees concerning Ichiro 

-“I’m going from a team having the most losses to a team with the most wins, so it’s been hard to maintain my excitement.” – Ichiro

-“Please be nice to me, I feel like telling them.” – Ichiro on joining Jeter, A-Rod on Yanks

-“No. 51 is a special number to me, but when I think about what 51 means to the Yankees, it’s hard for me to ask for that number.” – Ichiro

-“Ichiro can hit man. He can play.” – Derek Jeter.

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge —that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

-Ephesians 3:17-21

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called ; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. 8 This is why it[a] says:

“When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.”[b]

9 (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions[c]?10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature,attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

-Ephesians 4:1-32

I don’t know much about the NFL, i am infiltrating the dimensions of it though, as Robert Griffin III signs this $20M contract with the Redskins. Now, from what I understand, this guy is a rookie! I love it, I think athletes work for their money and really risk family time and unwanted injuries on the field traveling. I am logging more onto NFL.com and most likely will frequently visit the video game as well. Madden and I go back but never played on the field lol (@ my brother who claims I use to play like as it was my job), if you know what i mean.
