David Cone calls Ichiro Suzuki’s bat a “chopstick”

Yankees analyst David Cone was describing a replay of an Ichiro Suzuki groundball and just had to go… there.  Yes, he actually called Ichiro Suzuki's bat a "chopstick" during the YES Network's Yankees broadcast tonight.  You see, because Ichiro is from Japan, and chopsticks are a traditional Asian eating utensil, and both products are made from wood.  It's a clumsy, absent-minded analogy.  When will sports announcers learn to leave ethnic humor to professional comedians?
