Ichiro Enlights Us

Even if you don't know or follow baseball, here's all you need to know about him before reading his quote: he's really really good and he's the most popular player/person in Japan. He's played in the majors for 6 plus seasons. Ish. From USA Today:

Ichiro's reserved nature is partially reflective of his nationality, he says.
"It's a weakness to try to show yourself to be more than you actually are. To me, it's cooler to hide yourself, even if you're better than that," Ichiro says. "That's a big difference between Japanese and American cultures. Sometimes, (Americans) try to make themselves out to be bigger than they are."
