It has been a while since I really took the time to write anything that was half way worth reading. Lately it seems that I my thoughts and feelings have been all over the place. There isn’t a particular reason, well at least I can see, why I feel so blasé; it’s probably more life stuff. Okay enough of that type of talk lets get onto something more positive.
This weekend the 2005-2006 Seattle Seahawks are proved to us Seattle fans that they are the BEST team we have ever had, period. I don’t remember when there was so many bests associated with a Seattle team well at least in my life time. Seattle fans couldn’t ask for anything better than what we have going right now and believe me when I say “it has been a long wait and well over due”. <Cheers> to being a Seattle FAN!!!
Now we stand at an impressive 11-2 on the season with 3 games left. They are all hard games, no game is ever easy, but one in particular has me reeling with excitement and that is when Peyton Manning and the Colts come to town on Christmas Eve. One of my friend I have met through MSN Space, Marcie or Ruckus Ramblings from Indy, ask me if our teams will play their starters since we both have solidified our places in the playoffs? Yes, they will for a couple reasons.
One: The Colts are undefeated
Two: The Seahawks would like to upset that pretty record of theirs
Three: We are playing at home
Four: Seattle fans would be PISSED
Five: These two teams may meet in the Super Bowl
Six: I am praying for it
Seven: It is too important not to play them
Eight: That is why I bought tickets
Nine: Because I wrote to Santa
Ten: We have the loudest stadium, just ask Eli Manning
That is my ten days of Christmas…
What else is hempinin in my world? Oh yea, Thursday I am going to the Nutcracker with Kim. YEA BUDDY!! It should be hella fun. I have never been to the ballet before so it should be quite a learning experience. I am not sure if I will like or dislike it but if I do dislike it I have a BEAUTIFUL lady to capture my attention J She already does and I really enjoy her fun attitude.
We met up on Saturday at the Showbox to hang out. Well she went to the Showbox to see her brothers band play and I went to see her. So it all works out J I got a little lit up J a few beers and a few hager bombs I was ready to party but I ended up heading home some time after midnight. My buddy Chris, his girlfriend and I stopped at Taco Bell and scored so much food I though I might exploded after trying to consume it all. All in all a perfect evening.
Now we are to Sunday and where this story begins. Chris and I met up on Sunday afternoon right before the Hawks game and watched about 5 minutes at my place then made a b-line to his for the rest of the game. On our way there we stopped and got fuel and beer. We both noticed the lady’s Lexus next to us wasn’t in to good of shape due to the fact that her right rear tire was peeling of the rim.
Being well raised boys we offered and changed her flat, hell it is Christmas you know? After changing it she was trying to give us 20 bucks. We declined but after she would not let up we graciously accepted. She was like “go buy yourself some beer” and I was like “we just bought beer” with a smile but I told her we would get lunch instead.
It felt really good to help her out. In a lot of ways she reminded me of my mom. In a hurry, frustrated by something else that came up, in a nice car, well dressed, looking like she didn’t know how (regardless if she did know how) and not needing another headache at that moment. By offering it made me hope that someone seen my mother in that position that they would stop out of their day and help, even if the Hawks are playing.
Well I can see I have plenty to chat about tonight and with the holidays and the New Year approaching I am sure there will be no shortage of stories to come.
But Toby can you give a sneak peek?
Ok, ok you talked me into it. February I am going to Whistler to GO BIG!! My buddy came over Friday night for some cold beverages and he mentioned the trip. Noticing that the trip was badass I asked if I could sleep on the cabin floor. He told me the next day that I was IN LIKE FLYNN. YEA BUDDY!!
So with a brand new jacket and poles and most of my gear that has a season a half on it I will be their taking photos, getting crazy, skiing my ass off, goingbigger, maybe getting hurt and drinking a lot I will bring my new tablet so I can share with you all my adventures!! Needless to say I am really looking forward to the excitement!!
Gosh that is enough rambling out me for one evening. Hope all my friends are safe and sound.
Your friend in Time,
