Seattle Seahawks Madden 25 Commercials

This was the first one that I saw, Darian Foster & Marshawn Lynch Sr, playing Madden for Sega Genesis. I don’t know what’s better, Lynch Sr.’s Jheri Curl or the High-Top Fade on Foster.


Russell Wilson & Colin Kaepernick are almost as good. When Russell kissed his bicep, I lost it.

There’s just part of me that is worried. I remember what happened to Shaun Alexander.

Allen Iverson Retires

After three years out of the league Allen Iverson officially retired from the NBA today. Not many basketball players, or people, could overcome what AI had to. Gary Payton is my boy, but Allen Iverson was probably a better athlete. So quick in the passing lanes and on fast breaks, I might have asked Glove to play 2-guard and let AI handle the point, but there is still only one ball to play with.

Iverson was never a great percentage shooter from the floor, had half as many turnovers as assists, takes a ton of shots, and like to talk about practice more than actually practice.

This is exactly who David Stern had in mind when he came up with a dress code. AI had a cultural effect on the Association more so than any other player next to Michael Jordan. Tattoos, sleeves to cover up personal tattoos, jewelry, cornrows, baggy clothes, doo rags, headbands, ball caps, it’s like David Stern just looked through Iverson’s closet to come up with the banned list.

So even though you’ve been gone for years, here’s to the Answer. Now you can get to the HOF where you belong.

The Trial of Allen Iverson

This is probably the best one that I’ve seen. Allen’s legal problems before Georgetown almost precluded one of the most prolific basketball careers of all time.

Pearl Jam “Faithful”

I got to see Dave Grohl & Foo Fighters soundcheck at the Gorge, college days. Just me making elephant ears in the summertime, got my prep done and guess which band was doing a run-thru. Got to see Red Hot Chili Peppers too. And probably made a cool $50.

Anyways, this is supposed to be about Pearl Jam.

This song just pops into my head sometimes, “like echoes, nobody hears, echoes, echoes, echoes…..”

Kingdome Demolition

The Kingdome, aka ‘King County Multipurpose Domed Stadium’ just doesn’t capture the sensation of spending a beautiful summer day in the Pacific Northwest indoors watching the Mariners. “King County Sports Garage” seems more appropriate or just call it a ‘hole’. Like how a ‘whole’ lotta ceiling tiles started falling one day at Mariners batting practice. And that was the beginning of the end, spawning Safeco Field and what is now CenturyLink Field and a legacy of bad feelings over public bonds that opened the door for the Supersonics to leave.

If anything the Kingdome was loud. Especially Seahawks games. Setting records this year for crowd noise at the same site. I’ll see you there.

Controlled Demolition, Inc. (CDI) of Phoenix, Maryland (acting as Implosion Subcontractor to Aman Environmental Construction, Inc. of Oakland, California), captures a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the “Largest Structure (by volume) To Be Demolished Using Explosives” in their performance of the successful implosion of the 19.821 million cubic foot, reinforced concrete Kingdome Sports Arena in Seattle, Washington at 8:30 AM on Sunday, March 26, 2000.

Sounders Drop Deuce on MLS

That’s the headline I wanted to write. Oh well. It’s still mine. Dempsey has always been my favorite USMNTplayer. He scores goals. Plain and simple. He’s been a consistent performer even when the rest of his US teammates were playing like shit. One goal can really change a match, and Dempsey is the kind of player who is constantly threatening to score. It’s a big signing. Maybe they overspent, but it was about bringing a big star back home. So here’s to $41 million worth of soccer and more goals! Also, Clint Dempsey is known as ‘Deuce’ because he used to wear #2.
