It’s essentially what I posted the other day. Not as bad as I thought they would look. I’m certain I’ll eat my words once I’m sitting in front of my TV in Birmingham wearing a Sounders jersey next spring.
I’m assuming these are the road jerseys. Maybe the jerseys for international friendlies and US Open Cup matches?
I definitely not your omg-I-love-zombies guy, however, I’m a sucker for the post-apocalyptic fiction. What ‘nerd’ I have in me is tucked away and flourishing quite nicely within this genre.
While I don’t endorse the antics nor attitude of his character, Merle Dixon is played by Michael Rooker has the potential to be a major character. Rooker was born and somewhat raised in Jasper, AL, the greatest city in the world. After this week’s episode (you may remember Merle went crazy, cut off his hand, and ran into downtown Atlanta… which is full of zombies) I’m interested to see how big of a role his character plays.
Rooker also stared in Days of Thunder, one of the best major motion pictures about NASCAR in 1990. (I’m not doing much for my image as a non-redneck living in Seattle, am I?)
Also, side note, here’s a Q&A with Emma Bell (Amy) whose character was the first lead to die this Sunday.
Ah, the unbearably terrible snowstorm of 2008. The only positive result of your occurance was shown in the ability for Seattleites to ski to work, and sled through our streets.
We currently live in the most awesome of neighborhoods: Queen Anne Hill. Living on the actual hillside is giving us front row seats to both the beautiful (snowfall over Seattle) and the terrifying (a road with a 20% grade with black ice and snow).
Let’s just hope they shut it down before anything bad happens. Until then, I’m by the window.
Most of you don’t follow the Mariners closely. I’ve always loved the team, long before I moved to Seattle. Dave Niehaus was the Mariners’ Hall Of Fame announcer; one that I’ve been privileged to have on the TV 162 days of the year over the last 4 years.
Dave called 5,284 of the Mariners’ 5,385 games. If one were to play all of those games, one per day, all in a row, you’d play baseball 14 years straight.
I’m going to be cliche and post the clip from the “95 Slide”. No matter how many times I watch it, the clip still gives me chills.
My favorite thing about this video? Niehaus is incredibly professional throughout, but listen to his voice change at the 3 second mark. He becomes a fan. He is a fan. Niehaus is the only original Mariners employee who is still a Mariners employee.
We have a tradition around the Howell house that every Monday we go to our favorite German pub Prost!, one of Seattle’s four authentic German pubs. Only German beer on tap, served in its authentic glass by the 0.3L, 0.5L, and 1L.
I implore you to not only attend an Oktoberfest in your area, but to drink authentic German when you go.
Our German favorites, regardless of the time of year…
