Wedding bells for Matsui

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Mar 26, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

There’s some big news in Japan tonight. Hideki Matsui is getting married in the near future in the United States. The future Mrs. Godzilla is reportedly a 25-year-old former office worker.

Matsui will be holding a press conference tomorrow at Legends Field, I’ve been told. Thanks to several Japanese readers who e-mailed the story.

No word if Derek Jeter will hold a press conference to say he plans to continue working his way through actresses and models.

    I hope Jeter plans the Bachelor Party.

  2. Yeah! March 26th, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    No word if Derek Jeter will hold a press conference to say he plans to continue working his way through actresses and models.

    Hahahaha, that’s funny.

    Congratulations to Matsui! I wonder if he’ll hold the wedding at the Stadium?

  4. josh March 26th, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    I guess its time for Hideki’s porn collection to finally retire

  5. Skippy March 26th, 2008 at 9:13 pm

    No, the press conference would only have value if Jeter was announcing he had stopped working his way through actresses and models.

  6. Jax March 26th, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    Please tell he’s not really holding a PC to announce he’s getting married.

  7. gayle March 26th, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    Jax I have a feeling that with as many Japanese reporters that cover him that is the only way to get it done

  8. mel March 26th, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    Jax,

    It’s obvious he’s doing it for the Japanese media. Maybe he thinks this will minimize the “furor”. I think it’s kind of cute. Best man: Jeter, Igawa, or the translator?

    Looks like Godzilla can trash the XXX Film collection:

    Who knows, maybe his fiance’s on board with it?

    “Who knows, maybe his fiance’s on board with it?”

    :lol:

    Congratulations to Hideki Matsui!

    “No word if Derek Jeter will hold a press conference to say he plans to continue working his way through actresses and models.”

    Sorry but that story is “dog bites man.” When Jetes says he’s giving up the playa life, that, sir, will be “man bites dog” and then you’ll have your presser.

    Rebecca–Optimist Prime–Mission 2708:

    Just curious. I’m old and my generation’s wives are not generally “on board” with the hub having a porn collection, or being friends with an old girlfriend or keeping his little black book.

    Would you a) consider marrying a guy with a world class porn collection and b) would you let him keep it after the nuptials?

  15. Rishi March 26th, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    very funny :)

  16. Elizabeth--Melky in CF 08 and beyond March 26th, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    murphy–I know you weren’t directing the question to me, but I’m a single woman around Rebecca’s age (I’m 24), so I’m going to offer my unsolicited opinion on that: Not only would I let him keep it, but I’d probably add to it. To me, porn is a fun guilty pleasure, and not anywhere near being along the lines of cheating, or even maintaining a friendship with an ex. It’s all in good fun.

    Re: Jeter. In all seriousness, something tells me that there may come a time when he’ll FINALLY stop “working his way through actresses and models,” and we’ll all find out why. That’s just a hunch, though. I claim nothing as fact. :)

    Congrats Matsui!

  18. Jim Clark March 26th, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    As Joe Beningo once said, wouldn’t you love to be in Derek Jeter’s shoes and be able to tell Mariah Carey to takr a hike?
    Best wishes to the future Mr and Mrs Matsui. Make sure you get a good prenup. Don’t be a Paul McCartney in that (or in smuggling marijuana into Japan).

    Wow. Well, I’m convinced he’s telling the truth /sarcasm

  20. Mike R. - You are a liar! There. I said it. March 26th, 2008 at 9:51 pm

    Elizabeth – Are you planning on writing some sort of tell all about Jeter? I smell a best seller.

  21. Elizabeth--Melky in CF 08 and beyond March 26th, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    Mike–I’m waiting until I’m REALLY desperate for money. Oh, and I can get Don Yeager to ghostwrite it for me. ;)

  22. Alan March 26th, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    The Captain will offer his penthouse suite at Trump Tower for Hideki to honeymoon.

  23. Louise March 26th, 2008 at 10:05 pm

    I heard a rumour the first born son will be named Minya

  24. murphydog March 26th, 2008 at 10:05 pm

    Elizabeth–Melky in CF 08 and beyond:

    “It’s all in good fun.”

    I appreciate your candor.

  25. Patrick Bateman March 26th, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    Pete is there any way you can see if Matsui will give the fans his legendary porn collection now that he’s getting married?

    I bet he’s got some good stuff.

  26. Dee March 26th, 2008 at 10:26 pm

    Darn you mean to tell me Matsui was single all this time?!? I missed the boat! He’s not really my type look-wise but I’ve always had a mini crush on him:-)

    About his porn collection, my Japanese friends tell me it’s very acceptable in their culture for men, especially successful businessmen, to openly embrace their porn love.

    Elizabeth, I have the same hunch you have.

  27. Elizabeth--Melky in CF 08 and beyond March 26th, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    Dee: :)

    Let a playa play, Pete…let a playa play…
