King Felix is one of us

Felix Hernandez is a lot like us. A little different.
   Yesterday, when he committed to seven more years as a Seattle Mariner, the crafty flame-thrower didn’t act and sound like he felt entitled. He’s unlike so many other elite athletes. Instead, Felix wiped away a few tears and said, “I promise you, I’m going to be the same guy, except a better pitcher.”
   Cy Young-winning Seattle Mariner, you’re one of us. And you deserve a King’s Court ovation. You’re not bailing on the Northwest to chase your dreams in a distant metropolis. You’re not following the script of Seattle superstars from years past.
   “I’m doing this because I love Seattle,” Felix said.
   You’re a little different.
