Again from my recently constant source of info: Mr. Unbearable Banishment.
Apparently the "sad state of Seattle sports" is known nationwide...as he sent me this article from the New York Times: At a Time of Loss, Seattle Fans Hold On to Hope .
Kinda makes me want to cry...because I do remember the SoDoMoJo era of Mariners baseball, first when I was in high school and then again when I was a sophomore in college. And I watched along with everyone else in the city as the Seahawks got jacked of a Superbowl title 3 years ago.
As for the upcoming Seahawks vs. Redskins game on sunday...I'm of course rooting for the Seahawks because...well, because I have to. But to tell you the truth, if it were any other team vs. the Redskins I would probably be cheering for them. I've met Jim Zorn on several occasions (by several I mean he would come in to my work once every couple weeks before he got hired by the Redskins and moved) and he is a very nice humble likeable guy.
I posted a few days ago how I met Jon Olerud?!?! Well, my job location is prime for meeting local sports celebrities as it is smack in the middle of Mercer Island, Bellevue, Medina, Kirkland area where all the rich people live. Along with Zorn and Olerud, we've met Edgar Martinez, Marcus Trufant (a few times), Jamie Moyer, Detlef Schrempf, Coaches and Players from Husky sports teams, retired players etc etc etc. and those are just the ones I can remember off the top of my head.
No real point in that last paragraph.
Just wanted to brag about stuff...since being a Seattle-ite, we haven't gotten many chances to do that lately.
