The Seahawks just completed their win against the bears! That makes me smile.

Its been pretty busy around here. Lots of reading and researching. I am writing a paper tomorrow, so it will be nice to check another one off the list.

Well, I am off to get some dinner and then back to reading.

88-74

Not too shabby! Thats the season record for the Mariners. They end 6 games out of the division and 6 games back of the wild card. While they made it close in August, they failed to keep the momentum in September. So, slightly disappointing. At the same time, what an improvement! This year was much more fun than the last few. I look forward to off-season improvements, a winter lull, and a hopeful February.

For the winter, I will cheer on the Seahawks (who are looking to destroy the 49ers) and the oilers (who went 4-2 in preseason). For the month of October, I must confess, I am rooting for the N.L. While the teams might be weaker overall, their stories are much more fun. I just cant root for the Angels. Definatley not, when it comes to the Yankees. Boston, they had their turn a few years back. And Cleveland, no thanks. Better stories run with the Phillies and the Cubbies. (It helps to live in Chi-town).

Here’s a photo from the other day at Wrigley. I did not take the picture, but basically, it is about where we were standing and it felt like we were almost this close.

…Go cubs go!

Ok, first things first. I am sad the M’s are out. I cheered for them, I listened to games on the radio, on the internet, I watched games on tv, I even went to Wrigley by my self just to see them play. I have a mariners sign hanging in my car (which plan to take down and replaces with a “go hawks” sign). I called the station to top it all off when they were fantastic in August. Yes, I am bummed they lost and fell out of the playoff chase.

That being stated, I was in downtown Chicago tonight with some friends. we were near by Wrigleyville having coffee, so after we got outside, we noticed that the Cubs must have clenched the division. So we walked down to Wrigley. The people were pretty mild, but our section of the sidewalk did get cleared out by some very intimidating police on horses. Flags waving, people cheering, horns honking. It was fun to see. I took a photo of the famous Wrigley Field sign with the “Chicago Cubs are the 2007 National League Central Champions” but it was with my phone. Because it is on the phone it is impossible to read and I cannot even send it to my computer. It was still fun to see.

Go Hawks!!!!

Just under an hour until kick off. Go Seahawks!!! Oddly enough, I think that the game of football is steadily becoming more enjoyable to me. In the past I would make comments about how it is a “dumb game” and Brent would tell me if I understood the game better (knew more of the rules etc.) I would like it much more. In the past few years I have slowly started watching and listening to more games. I believe Brent was right. It is not on par with Hockey nor does it even come close to baseball, but I like it.

This year I am even in a Fantasy football league (Thanks Katie!) so that will make may attention even more!

So today, its time to Hoist the Seahawk 12th man flag and create havoc on the Buccaneers ship. (For those who do not know, Seattle is taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 3 CT.)

Other than that…10 days until one of my favorite days of the year. What day is that? Well Maties, I will leave you guessing for a while.

6 days 14 hours

Its that time of year again. What happens in 6 days & 14 hours? Pitchers & Catchers report to spring training!!!! YEAH! Baseball is almost here. I think it is time to dust off my cassette tapes that have my “baseball music.” Perhaps listening to them while drinking some ice tea and eating a handful of sunflower seeds will make it seem a little less like winter.

Go Mariners!!!!!

With baseball right around the corner, It is much easier to deal with:
*a Superbowl in which 1. the Seahawks did not make it into & 2. the next best team (other than Seattle) did not win
*a hockey season where the Oilers still have a shot at the playoffs, (never say die!) but it will be a fight to get there
*a NBA season in which Seattle has recently lost 5 games in a row and the last 15 road games (actually, just checked they won tonight in Indiana, but still…it has been a rough go)

Bummer

I just realized that the State of the Union is tomorrow. Bummer! I have a night class. And I so enjoy watching the state of the union….I almost missed it completely. Being in school is like being in a time warp.

next year I guess….(I just remember last year being SO entertaining, almost like the British House of Commons).

Other than that, I have to admit something…I dont care who wins the superbowl. Maybe I will as time gets closer or the game starts, but for now, I don’t care. I wanted to root for the Bears, but I am still bummed they beat Seattle. Plus, I have to admit that I am not impressed with the attitude of the team. I find them annoying. Why? I don’t know. I guess part of it is Rex Grossman. Part of it kind of wanting Payton Manning to win. Part of it is still being mad about the way everyone talked about the Seahawks. Part of it is being tired of the seeming cockeyness of the Bears. On the other hand, I have fond memories of the Bears, but that was such a different team 20+ years ago. Also, it is kind of fun that I live in Chicago now and they are going to Miami, but at the same time, I just don’t have any motivation to or feel like jumping on the Bears bandwagon. So many things….we will see where two weeks bring me.

All I can say is if I move between now and next year’s football playoffs, where ever I move to, their football team should personally welcome me to the city. Last year Seattle, this year Chicago, next year…who knows.

I don't…

…plan on watching football this week. I will most likely listen to the Bears game on the radio. AND Go Bears! I am not anti bears. (I remember living here in ’85 and the Superbowl shuffle, “we are the bears, the shuffling crew. Shuffling on down, doing it for you. We’re so bad, we know were good. Blowing your mind like we knew we would!”) I just wanted the Hawks to win last week.

From here on out, it would be swell to see the Bears win the entire thing. Although, I must report that the people of Chicago seem to be a bit cautious. Last year in Seattle, the entire playoff time was insane! Crazy Seahawks fans everywhere. Here, not as much. On Monday there were plenty of people wearing bears hats and shirts and such, but not as much on billboards, signs, advertisements, well just about everywhere like it was Last year back home. I am suprised. Maybe Bears fans are just worried. Like the fact that the Hawks almost won. (people were shocked!) Everyone was predicting a Blowout, but nope.

So maybe if they win Sunday, the insanity will arrive for two weeks. We’ll see.

Football

GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

local weather report: we got sleet this morning about 5 am so it has been a bit slick and cars are iced up, but right now at 10:30 am it is thawing.

More sleet is supposed to move in this afternoon probably during the game. This evening the snow is coming.

As a side note, yes, I went to church, I just made sure to go to the early service so that I could catch some of the pregame & not miss the kickoff.
