MARINERS SNEAK PEEK!

We’ve survived the holidays.  We got through the worst snowstorm that’s blown through the Pacific Northwest in decades.  We also bore witness to the unapologetically boring Super Bowl.  After all that, we’re SO ready for some great news.  Bull Nation, I’ve got some: The 2019 Seattle Mariners are ready to bring back great baseball. Here’s how: WE’VE CUT UNNECESSARY PAYROLL …

HOLD THAT GROUNDHOG…

Spring’s coming early, apparently.  The big news flash came Saturday morning in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania when a rodent the size of a bread box stuck its head out of a burrow and didn’t see its own shadow.  According to traditions that stretch back to before the 20th century, the rodent (called a “woodchuck” or “groundhog”) can apparently predict six extra weeks …

NO VIADUCT? COUNT YOURSELF LUCKY! (also a little history)

VIA-DOOM.  The very mention of a 21st Century portmanteau such as this demands a chill running down your spine. Hairs stand on end, goosebumps form, and before you know it commuters from all over are quaking in their boots.  The absence of the Alaskan Way Viaduct will, as you may already know, clog and impede traffic in and around Seattle …

NO MORE SEAHAWKS? TIME TO RE-LIVE THE PNW!!!

  It’s a bummer. We invested serious time and money being fans of Seattle football this year. The new swag we bought, the food we ate, the dollars we paid to watch the games from home,  the tickets and parking we paid for…yeah, we paid for all that.  When you add in all the time we spent watching and listening …

SHARING THE BURDEN WITH MALE BIRTH CONTROL!

I have to admit, writing this is a little uncomfortable.  After all, a piece concerning something as taboo as birth control is bound to be better written by a lady.  BUT here we are in the 21st century, and medical advancements from fast-acting antidepressants to heart monitors that live on your smartphone are quickly becoming the norm.  As far as …
