Super Seahawks! FanFest, Anyone?
Well, the Seahawks just won the final game on the path to the Super Bowl. Now, I would've been spot on with the score, too, had I given their offense more credit (and Carolina's defense less credit). And, they're facing the Steelers instead of Steely-eyes' team (the Broncos).
Congratulations to the Seahawks! Let's hope you left some mojo in Seattle for the M's. Bring home that trophy now, ya hear!
With the Sonics beating the Suns in double-OT, on a Ray Allen 3-point wooden stake smack dab into their hearts, I was hoping the M's would make a huge move today, to top off the jubilation. But, as of now, nope. Nothing. At least we now know that Jeremy Reed is not going to Boston. That's good news in my book. While I would've liked some pitching help, it wasn't going to happen anyway.
Next weekend is Fan Fest. I'm probably going at least once. Not sure when yet -- have to talk it over with the wife. There's been some talk of an informal gathering -- we can wait in line for hours together for Kenji Johjima's or Felix Hernandez' autograph (or both?). I'll try and figure out what's going on with the wife, and I have to let my brother-in-law know so we can make plans together. With Kenji being there, the lines should be long by 7 a.m. -- meaning I'll likely be there by 5 or 6 a.m. on the day I do go. I realize that's waaaay early, but seriously, that's probably the only way you'll have a decent chance at Kenji's autograph. It's actually quite fun to hang out there that early -- specially if there's more than two of us. I'll have a better keyboard so I can blog a bit, and I'll probably also bring a book. I'll definitely dress warmly.
But I know for sure what I'm doing two weeks from now. Super Bowl Extra Large, baby! Seahawks over the Steelers 28-17.
