Ichiro

Ichiro Suzuki of the New York Yankees, in case you haven't heard, went seven for eight in a doubleheader against the Toronto Blue Jays. In second game of the day night doubleheader he went four for four with four stolen bases! Ichiro increased his overall batting average by eight points from .269 to .277. Fittingly, after the second game Ichiro said "I'm very sad that the day is over." The trade for Ichiro has rejuvenated him. In 53 games with the Yankees he's batting .317 with 3 homeruns, 19 rbis, and 10 sbs. If you project those number over the course of 162 games those numbers become All Star numbers. Ichiro before the Yankee trade was a a Hall of Famer with a great glove but on the decline in his offensive abilities. Since then he's been exceptional offensively and has outperformed everyone's expectations.

Not for nothing, but everybody gets reinvigorated offensively when they start playing half their games in Yankee Stadium with those ridiculous dimensions lol

yeah and to add to that, yankee line up is always so strong offensively that every hitter benefits from being a part of it to a certain extent. curtis granderson is a prime example. As a pitcher, you are more than likely to take your chances with giving up a base hit to ichiro than having to face let's say cano or arod or tex. That being said, ICHIRO IS AM AMAZINGLY AWESOME PLAYER. the dude is a giant in this world of sports. And alternatively, he is from japan and he succeeded so much in MLB that no asian player (like hidek matsui) can touch him in terms of records and hits.

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree. I told my mom, my aunt, my dad and basically everyone on my social media. I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.



Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
