'Wassup, George?' Watch Ichiro's hilarious, heartwarming message to Ken Griffey Jr.

Ken Griffey Jr. and Ichiro Suzuki are both Mariners legends, though they played together only briefly in 2009 and '10. For the occasion of Griffey's induction into the Mariners Hall of Fame, Ichiro recorded this fantastic congratulatory message. He ribs Junior by calling him by his given name, but leaves no doubt about the tremendous respect he has for him.

And in the best part, the Yankees outfielder imitates Dave Niehaus' signature phrase, which provided the soundtrack for some of Junior's most iconic moments.
