The Mariners are selling limited edition Seattle Mariners DS Lites at Safeco Field. And no, that isn't just a sticker; rather, the slick Mariner's logo is embedded below the clear plastic casing. One Pink Godzilla customer brought his by after the game today. (In case you didn't know, Pink Godzilla is located less than a half-mile from Safeco Field.) Pretty frickin' sweet. The cost? Comes out to about $158 with tax. According to the lady at the DS booth, there are only 2000 of these bad boys being made and they are going fast. Yikes, I know where I'm going tommorrow night...
I want one, but I already have a DS Lite...

I need one of those!

This is a very Japanese thing to do.. of course Nintendo is a Japanese company and all that. But in Japan if a company owns or is a major sponsor they will make products just for that team.. no other teams just that team.. I think it is cool!

I'm going to the M's-Padres game on Saturday night... I need to stay away from the Team Store, cause I might have to buy one...

Outside of my family.. M's games and Mac and Jack's are the only things I really miss about home

I figured they were joking, or I would've responded in a similar manner.

Simulating home here will definitely make Ichiro want to stay with the Mariners long term.

Fun Facts: Yamaguchi wanted Ichiro, Yamaguchi has never seen an M's game live, Yamaguchi wanted Daisuke but heard about how much the Redsox were rumored to pay and said "get the **** out of here"*, Yamaguchi didn't want anything to do with Igawa....

Who's this Yamaguchi person? He sounds like a jolly fellow.

I like the fact that Nintendo owns the Mariners... I don't get the funny :(
Because they run the Mariners in the same ****ing way they run Nintendo.

Fun, family oriented and profitable. They don't care about being number one in the standings as long as they're number one in money made.

Almost every DS Lite special edition so far has been on the white DS. Only two were on black, to my knowledge (a Pokémon one with gold and silver paint, and an awful Winning 11 one that someone just practically scribbled on), and there's been no special edition colors at all, have there? It must be difficult for them to get the paint process down or something.
