    Beer being sold at UW Husky Stadium during college games - for a price

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-08-21 09:59:21

    Thought this was interesting and obviously the start of a trend in college football - serving beer at games.

    But they want you to pay $25 to get into the beer area and then you still have to pay for your beers. Forget that...

    Women and throwing a Frisbee..

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-08-20 15:04:42

    Just came back from a jog through one of Seattle's waterfront parks. Some company was having a picnic for their employee's and there were 3 ladies trying to throw a Frisbee to each other.

    Not sure why they were bothering. They were standing about 25 feet apart and none of them could get it within 10 feet of the person they were throwing it to. I know there are lady competitive Frisbee throwers, but they are in a small minority. Most ladies I've seen throw like the three I saw today.

    There's gotta be a missing DNA thing going on for the ladies when it comes to throwing Frisbees and parallel parking. So weird how those two odd-ball activities can be such a struggle for many of them.

    And this is the kind of stuff you get when the board is slow.

    Today's Poll....

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-08-14 09:22:13

    I selected "other" because I would like to see alternating years of zoobs and Utah State along with one G5 and one P5.

    I think it's important to keep some semblance of in-state rivalries alive. There's over 100 years each of history playing those two schools and efforts should be made to keep those legacies active. So every other year for zoobs/USU would work fine in that regard.

    I always find this schedule handy. They update it as the season goes along.

    First game is on 8/23?? Also didn't realize Weber State was playing Arizona State on 8/28. That'll be some sort of boat race...for ASU.

    Anyone watching the TV series "Apocalypse: WWI?"

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-08-13 09:49:47

    It's being broadcast on both the National Geographic channel and the American Hero's Channel:

    Apocalypse WWI

    Really an impressive series. They've taken the old video footage and run it through computer software to colorize and also remove the herky-jerky action you normally see.

    But the carnage involved is absolutely insane. Napoleon-like warfare but using modern weapons, especially the advent of the modern machine gun. When they talk about battles and rattle off statistics like 20,000 killed in one day, 60,000 killed in a week, etc., it's just jaw dropping.

    And then the abject misery of living in the trenches. Just unreal.

    I was in a half-dozen combat zones during my 20 year stint and know what it's like to have a bullet or grenade thrown my way. But absolute pales in comparison to what those poor WWI slobs went through.

    If you haven't seen it - check it out. That war ended up toppling several governments and setting the stage for what is now modern Europe as well as WWII.

    Great Football Line

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-08-05 15:18:53

    During my lunch run was listening to Richard Sherman being interviewed by the local media during camp. The interviewer asked him about individual motivation on the team. His response was something along the lines of:

    "Earl Thomas and Russell Wilson are motivated by personal greatness. They are continually looking to make themselves better than they were the day, the play, the minute before. Kam Chancellor is motivated by how many players he can crush in a day. He lives in a dark place."

    Man, what a great football attitude and player.

    OK - I'll admit it. I watched "Sharknado" and "Sharknado 2" this weekend.

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-08-04 13:52:02

    Guess I was bored, but I have to admit they were pretty damn funny. If anyone was expecting a serious movie from a story about sharks in a tornado, well...there's just something wrong with ya.

    I think these would be the perfect movies to run in the background during Halloween parties. In the most stupid of ways, they were actually relatively entertaining.

    OK, fess up. Who else watched these "classics?"

    I'm sure you're all interested in the Seattle weather, but thought I'd mention it anyway.

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-08-02 13:45:19

    Forecast is for 86 degree weather and sunshine, 0% chance of rain.

    Reality? In the last two hours it's rained twice, we've had a thunderstorm (which knocked out my power for about 5 minutes) and now a little hail.

    Funny how those forecasts almost never work here in the Puget Sound due to the convergence of ocean and mountain weather scenarios.

    The defense doesn't scheme against their own offense, they're working on their own sets. Plus they're not allowed to hit the QB. It is a completely different situation than an opposing DC creating their own scheme against an offense.
