A few of you may know I have a slight crush on Chan Ho Park. Victorino would be number two and there's not a 3rd. You can have Utley, and Jayson Werth has a tendency to look like a werewolf. And he spells his name lame.
I have a soft spot for Korean guys because my first love was Korean, Lee Rennels.
Lee had such an interesting way about him. Adopted by an American family when he was a small tot- he was handsome, "athletic" funny, witty, charming, and had a heart the size of Seoul.
He was the only Korean guy on the Souderton High Football team.
Chan Ho was the first Korean player in the major leagues. And- as you know-the only Korean guy that can grow a beard.
I don't know much about Chan Ho. I know he used to be a Dodger and I know he doesn't pitch that much. That kind of lends itself to the "absence makes the heart grow fonder" way of affection.
I didn't know he was married to a socialite/chef.
This is a bite of a downer on this Friday morning.
I have no chance. Good thing I've got that Lance guy around.
Back to work.
