Jack at U Village

Jack' Mommy and Daddy had breakfast over at the U Village today. Jack
then walked around and met the bronze turtle and cow.

Here he is telling them a joke.
"there was a priest, a rabbi and a baby. And the baby says..."

You gotta love this guy

I'll be rooting for Jamie Moyer when (if) he takes the mound for the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series Game 3. For those of you who don't know Moyer he is 45 years old and throws that ball with a velocity that might touch 86mph at times, but rarely. He's wise, cagey and what I like best, humble. He was with the Mariners for many years and I loved watching him play.
Watching Moyer was/is what is beautiful about baseball. He's patient on the mound, he's in control, never backs down and does all the little things he can to help the team. After many years with the Mariners he knew that spending his last years on a rebuilding team was not the best choice. He left for Philly and has helped them a lot it appears. He finally gets his chance to play in the World Series. I hope he goes out there and buries the Rays in 75mph fastballs!

Read this article from ESPN to learn more.

There are a lot of things wrong with pro sports. I agree with ESPN that every pro athlete should sit down with Moyer for 10 minutes to learn what it means to be humble and great.

Go Moyer.

Geico commercial

The following GEICO commercials have me laughing every time I watch them. I'm bugging the crap out of Lavi every time I impersonate this kid too. But he sells it. Love it.

Can I root for Portland? Really?

Well sports fans of the NW you may not know it but the NBA season is about to start. We wouldn't know because several individuals managed to back a truck up to Key Arena and cart away our Supersonics.

Now I'll weigh in on not caring that Seattle doesn't have a basketball team. I only rooted for the Sonics twice, once in 79 and once in 96. Sure there were some times around those years and brief stint in the 80's when I was scared that Dale Ellis' wife would beat me up if I didn't root for them, but for the majority of time... I never tuned in too much. I guess after watching Michael in his prime really can ruin you.

But let's just say I have the urge to root for a team. What is a Seattle fan to do? Do we pick a random team across the nation? I know individuals in non-sports towns have to do that. We can turn our attention to the UW just in time to have a California team destroy our hopes.

I vote for the Portland Trailblazers. I vote for them for one reason. A reason that if you live in the NW and have ever watched the Sonics I don't need to explain.

Nuff said.
