Matsui Gets Married
I always implicitly assumed that Hideki Matsui of the Yankees has been married, so when news broke that he finally got married this past Wednesday, I was a little bit surprised but the most curious thing of all was that he apparently told no one about it, not even his teammates knew why he took a sudden leave of absence to New York (for his wedding).
Talk about global reach, his wedding was blessed by the chief government spokesperson in Japan, wishing him "a very happy wedding".
"How do you say sneaky in Japanese?" said a stunned Derek Jeter.
But the identify more than a sketch of his new wife is completely unknown. All Matsui said in his press release was that she is a "25-year-old civilian and had been formerly working in a reputable position at a highly respected company."
