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?
