More Fukudome!

Kosuke Fukudome has earned yet another American sports accolade;

the May 5th 2008 cover of Sports Illustrated.

As if that wasn't big enough, he's also earned approval of the rapid Chicago fans, the cover of the official Fukudome fan a t-shirt.

So along with confirmation of his stardom by the upper echelons of sports journalism and Cubs fans, his .326 batting average is giving him a serious head-start for the NL Rookie of the Year award...

Who was the 2001 AL Rookie of the Year? Just a nobody named Ichiro Suzuki...

Yeah, Fukudomania IS ON.

Yeah, too bad the Japanese on the back is completely wrong.

It should be written in kanji - not katakana, which is used to phonetically spell non-Japanese words and names. Written that way is like spelling it "fookoodohmay".

Don't you know that Japanese flag is as offensive to most Asians as the Nazi Swastika is to Jews?
