MY FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE SEAHAWKS DISAPPOINTING LOSS... Enough time has now elapsed since Saturday’s Seattle Seahawks loss for me to get it together and offer a few brief words.

It was a tough, disappointing loss. I actually thought the Seahawks had their touchdown to tie the game on 4th and 4 with about 25 seconds to go. But alas, the pass was not completed and their season ended with the St. Louis Rams emerging triumphant for the third time in as many meetings between the team this season. Though it pains me to say it: if you lose to a team THREE times in one season, you simply don’t deserve to move on in the playoffs.

Particularly sad is the fact that I won’t get to see Matt Hasselbeck, Shawn Alexander and the rest compete for a whole year!!! But the Sonics’ and the Husky basketball teams are showing real promise…and then there’s always the Seattle Mariners!

One of the more interesting parts about Saturday’s game wasn’t the game itself, but the two drunken guys who sat nearby for part of the game. One man was particularly loud, obnoxious, drunk and vulgar—but in a (usually) light-hearted way, if you can picture it. His companion really added a dimension to the whole thing, since his had read “F*ck Off” and all he did was make whiny-sounding comments between his cackle of a laugh.

Moreover, on the way back to the car after the game, I saw to guys smoking POT on the street. The both wore #80 Steve Largent jersey’s, of all things. This was the first time I’ve ever seen sports fans leaving Qwest, Safeco, or even the old Kingdome doing drugs.
