World Series MVP Hideki Matsui celebrated the Yankees win at today's tickertape parade. And while we have no idea if plans to keep the party going this evening, he probably should know that no less than 100 lovely ladies are going to be waiting for him on West 33rd Street tonight, including "Suki" (right) who happens to be fluent in Japanese. Oh, and Hideki's wife is invited, too, naturally.

Happy Birthday

A former outfielder for New York Yankees, Matsui was the first Japanese power hitter to successfully make the jump to American baseball. However, after the Yankees cut him loose, he's played on the Angels and Athletics.
