Quick Cap: Seahawks 23 - Rams 20

Update: Hey, good for the guys. I'm sour. It was ugly and against a terrible team. But screw me. This team has never, ever quit and I've never once felt anything but proud to be a Seahawks fan.

. . .

Seattle won and in so doing proved they're one of the worst teams in football.

Game Ball: John Carlson: Six targets, five receptions, three first downs and 76 yards.

Something else after the jump.


Falling Stars

Do you remember still the falling stars
that like swift horses through the heavens raced
and suddenly leaped across the hurdles
of our wishes--do you recall? And we
did make so many! For there were countless numbers
of stars: each time we looked above we were
astounded by the swiftness of their daring play,
while in our hearts we felt safe and secure
watching these brilliant bodies disintegrate,
knowing somehow we had survived their fall.

-Ranier Maria Rielke

Donner Party

Forsaken, fucking in the cold,
eating each other, lost
runny noses,
complaining all the time
like so many
that we know

-Richard Brautigan

So Now?

the words have come and gone,
I sit ill.
the phone rings, the cats sleep.
Linda vacuums.
I am waiting to live,
waiting to die.
I wish I could ring in some bravery.
it's a lousy fix
but the tree outside doesn't know:
I watch it moving with the wind
in the late afternoon sun.
there's nothing to declare here,
just a waiting.
each faces it alone.
Oh, I was once young,
Oh, I was once unbelievably

-Charles Bukowski
