Penguin and Snowman Finish Marathon November 6, 2007
Here are some H&N runners who completed this past weekend’s ING New York City Marathon. They ran 26.2 miles in costume, as a snowman and a penguin. Amazing. And Frickin’ CRAZY!! Gotta love it.
H&N Help Take ALCS October 23, 2007
The Boston Red Sox squeezed their way into the World Series by taking out the Cleveland Indians in the 7th game of the ALCS. Two key members that helped the team get there were Daisuke Matsuzaka (pictured left) and Hideki Okajima (on the right), who came from Japan in the hopes of getting to the biggest competition in baseball. So congrats to Dice-K and Okajima for making it this far. I know there are lots of people rooting otherwise, but you guys go do your thing and win it!
Venus Williams in Korea October 1, 2007
Venus Williams was in Korea playing the Hansol Korean Open. She won, and got dressed up in Korean garb for the award ceremony. Is it just me, or do H&N’s love dressing nons in traditional costume?
Ichiro says weird shit August 31, 2007
Ichiri Suzuki, a ballplayer for the Seattle Mariners, says weird shit. A few highlights:
“It’s not surprising. At the same time, it’s not that usual. It’s somewhere between usual and surprising.”
“I hope he arouses the fire that’s dormant in the innermost recesses of my soul. I plan to face him with the zeal of a challenger.”
“Tiger is a great golfer, but … when you say athlete, I think of Carl Lewis. When you talk about [golfers or race-car drivers], I don’t want to see them run. It’s the same if you were to meet a beautiful girl and go bowling. If she’s an ugly bowler, you are going to be disappointed.”
Thanks, Jen, for the tip!
6’10” Asian signs with Bucks August 30, 2007
Yi Jianlin, who, for those who don’t know, is a super tall Chinese basketball player, just signed to play in the NBA with the Milwaukee Bucks. Dude is 19! Anyway, he was hedging on the deal because he didn’t like Milwaukee (not enough Asians). Guess he’ll have to deal with it now!
Tiger’s got another one in the bag? August 11, 2007
Tiger Woods might win another one! Yes, he’s Asian! Partially, dammit. Hot and Nerdy has his kill face on! Win it!
H&N K.J. Choi is also on the leaderboard at T16. I have no idea what that means, but he’s not going to win. We still love you, baby!
