Well we made in to beautiful cool and overcast Seattle. just perfect, I thought. As long as it's not Phoenix, I don't care if its raining cats and puppies, I'm loving it.
So all I said to Sue was, I just want to go downtown and kinda take in the atmosphere around the CLink prior to the game. And then after, go to a joint and watch the game on a big screen. Didn't sound like such a big deal, right? Wrong!!! At the first place I asked a waitress, "what is a good time to come in to watch the game?" "Oh you have to be here at 9am when we open to get a seat or your out a luck. But I say naively, the game starts at 1:35pm? She says it gets crazy on game day. Well, does anybody leave and then go to the game? Yeah, but it just fills right in just as fast you can try to get that spot. Well, I don't want to have to fight for a booth or nothin. Oh I didn't know you wanted a booth, people jump from the tables before can clean off the booth tables. Really, is it like this everywhere? Yea, pretty much, look I gotta get to work, you want something else? No, I said thanks for your help, Go Hawks! Yeah, Go Hawks she said, not so excitedly."
But now, you want me to go along because Elaine and Bill are willing to go. Well, she is your friend. So I have to go from 9AM til the end of the game. Like seven and a half hours, are you out of your freaking mind!!! Yes dear, I'm out of my freaking mind and I'm asking you to go with our Seattle friends to a bar for seven and a half hours and watch football, Seahawk football, with a morning game. I don't want to spend my precious off time in my home town not visiting my friends and my family to watch crazed boozed up football fans and try to talk over the noise of the bar. Yes, that might be a problem but it is very contagious to get into the fun of Seahawk football, Go Hawks! Don't tell me contagious, I need that like I need Valley Fever (common fungus spore that you can pick up the in southwest that is a slow coughing death). Okay it's a little less of a slow death as a cough for the rest of your life. Its not as bad as that, no really.
So anyway, its all up in the air. I may be stuck watching the game at a friends house (not as bad as I'm making it out to be). No trip to listen to crowd, this trip maybe next time...if she lets me come home on her airline...with her. She wouldn't revoke my pass privileges would she? Well, maybe I will not be DesertSeahawk anymore, maybe I'll be SeattleSeahawk....no wait ,that name is definitely taken. This is mostly an accurate account of the day minus all the other fun shit that went on. You have to pay for grocery bags now???? What the Hell?
