    by SeaTacUte
    2014-07-22 11:39:48

    Baseball pennant races are heating up, plus the trade deadline is approaching.

    NFL training camps start this week.

    NCAA Football Conference Media days are this week.

    The Canadian Open is this weekend.

    So what is ESPN's lead story and headline?

    LEBRON'S MENTAL GAME

    I guess if it weren't for Lebron, there'd be no ESPN as they'd have nothing to report.

    Just got back from seeing "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes"

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-07-21 20:04:05

    Damn good movie.

    CGI of the apes was extraordinary. Story was engaging if not a little predictable. Even if you're not a fantasy/sci-fi fan, it's well worth checking out. You'll certainly be entertained.

    Also, I saw it in 3D and that's not really necessary. There weren't any big 3D moments in the flick. Just go see it in a good IMAX theater as there are some really nice FX scenes.

    I give it 4 stars out of 5.

    Another summer adventure

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-07-21 11:43:03

    This past weekend one of my beer drinking buddies and I attended the Winthrop Blues Festival. Always a great time with some excellent music for pretty dang cheap - $80 for 3 days.

    But this year we were smack dab in the middle of the fire zones that have been plaguing eastern Washington. The town of Winthrop itself lost all power and Hwy 20 - which is the main thoroughfare to reach the town (and the festival) - was closed from Winthrop eastbound for several miles. Winthrop was in serious jeopardy of being burned to the ground. We talked to a nice lady who had a small home there and she had been without power for 3 days and on Friday had been told to evacuate - she was essentially living at the festival. We saw her again on Sunday and fortunately the evacuation for her area had just been lifted and her home safe. Many, many others were not so lucky. Lots of homes were lost.

    The festival still went on - it's held about a mile west of Winthrop in a big field next to the Methow River and the stage power is run by generators. But attendance was about half it normally is due to the fires. The fires were obvious for miles and miles to the east of the event and at night, you could clearly see the flames that you couldn't see during the day because of the smoke. The event organizers were making regular announcements as to whether the event might be shut down and all the campers were told to make sure they could make a quick getaway. We saw a continual stream of water planes and helicopters dumping water on the fires. Fortunately, by Sunday afternoon, the fires around Winthrop had been officially contained, but plenty of damage done and fires were still raging in areas nearby.

    Those who attended had a great time and were treated to some fine music (Roy Rogers and Charlie Musselwhite kicked butt!).

    Here is a picture of one of the areas of fire right next to where we were camping on the festival grounds. But this was a small portion - looking eastward there was about a 180 degree view of nothing but burning mountains. Props go to the hard-working firefighters who kept that fire at bay.

    The U.S. Honor Flag just came through SeaTac Airport

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-07-15 11:20:35

    On it's way to Anchorage in support of a slain police officer there.

    The Honor Flag has traveled across the country in honor of fallen officers, fire fighters and military personnel. Not only has the US Honor Flag traveled across the country, but has also traveled to the International Space Station aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis.

    The Flag has never been touched by bare hands, a set of white gloves must be worn prior to touching the Flag. There were 12 sets of white gloves aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis and on July 2nd, Chris Heisler, the founder of the US Honor Flag, honored the Port of Seattle Police by gifting one of the 12 sets as thanks for the support provided over the years.

    Here's a short video of the Flag transfer and the gloves gift.

    Could LeBron PLEASE sign with a team today??

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-07-09 09:18:23

    Holy moly I've had enough of hearing about LeBron and where he's going to sign from the media. ESPN even has a running sidebar about it during their Sports Center broadcasts.

    We have 3 sport radio stations here in Seattle (where we don't even have an NBA team and frankly, no one gives a rip), and on the way to work as I was scanning the stations, all I got was, "Today LeBron is visiting...," "Lebron should sign with...,"Lebron's wife might be involved..."

    You know with that kind of butt-kicking they want to go out and party like nobody's business. I imagine they feel the way I did after the Seahawks won the Super Bowl. I wanted to yell, scream and party for the next 5 straight days.

    But I'm sure the Brazilian locals wouldn't appreciate that. And they have their fair share of criminals and gangs who are probably looking for someone to take it out on.

    Might be a little tense there right now.

    Cloud Atlas

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-07-06 11:37:31

    Was at some friends yesterday for a BBQ and to watch a flick with several other friends - big group. They have an extensive DVD/blu-ray collection and told me to pick one. I saw this movie "Cloud Atlas" that had a terrific lineup of actors - Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Hugh Grant and many others. A fairly recent release too, 2012. Asked my friends about it and got all sorts of "OMG - that is the most fantastic flick! Made by the same guys who did 'The Matrix.'" Was surprised I'd never heard of it with that cast and made by the Matrix guys - as I loved that series. So we watched that.

    The movie was 3 hours long, and when it was over I looked at my "OMG - this is such a great movie," friends and asked "What in the f**k was that?? That's one of the most narcissistic, incomprehensible, overblown and just plain stupid movies I've ever seen. What the hell are you guys thinking?"

    So what followed was a 45 minute debate by the entire group on the movie. About 70% thought like I did, the other 30% thought it was some sort of modern masterpiece.

    I looked it up on Wikipedia to make sure I got all the nuances of the "plot" (as convoluted as it is), and once validated, came away thinking it was even more stupid than I had originally thought (although the acting was quite good, but good acting can't make up for stupid story).

    Anyone else see this? If so, what did you think?

    Was an awesome concert for electronic fans from the guys who set the ground work for what electronic music is today. There would be no Daft Punk if it weren't for these guys. Terrific 3D effects along with the usual Kraftwerk head nodding electronic music.

    An adventurous weekend...

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-06-30 12:01:40

    This past weekend I went camping and whitewater rafting with several friends. Washington has numerous great whitewater rivers and I'm a licensed guide myself, but haven't guided a commercial trip in several years.

    We went on the Sauk River which is traditionally a Class III river, but with recent rainfall, had several Class IV sections to it this time around. It was as rocking as I'd ever seen it.

    I asked our guide to hit everything as we were all experienced rafters and wanted a good ride. So in our "carnage" boat, we hit a trough that we couldn't see because of a submerged rock and 5 of us were launched out including myself. This happened just in front of a 1/4 mile stretch of rapids. I was in the front of the boat and people fell over the top of me and were kicking me down while I was under water. When I finally got away from that, I tried to surface and my head hit the the bottom of the boat which was slowly moving out of a stall. Made a second attempt to surface and finally got up only to have a whitewater wave roll over the top of me and swallowed a ton of water. Had no idea what was going on around me, but eventually saw my boat moving rapidly away, the second boat a good 30 yards behind me and bobbing heads everywhere. Like one of the scenes from the Titanic. Two of the people were rescued fairly quickly, but the other 2 and I ended up swimming the entire 1/4 mile of rapids before we were picked up by the second boat - there were 10 of us in there. By the time they got us all in we hit another set of rapids and because of the overload, that boat was nearly uncontrollable and damn near rolled over. Finally made it to a quiet point where we banked the rafts and reset the crews. I was sucking major wind, had swallowed several gulps of water and the water was exceptionally COLD (glacial run-off), so the energy level was low. And this was in the first 30 minutes with another 3 1/2 hours of rafting to go. One of the swimmers suffered a shoulder injury and had to be taken to the hospital after the ride - x-rays were negative, but he'll probably need an MRI too. I'm still sore and have bruises all over me. In all my years of whitewater rafting, it was one of the craziest (and scariest) experiences I've had.

    On the way there, I also passed by the Oso mountain slide that happened earlier in the year and killed over 50 people. It was an unbelievable and sobering sight. Looked like something out of an Armageddon movie - just a total wasteland with half of a mountain missing. There were two man-made flagpoles with giant American flags hanging at half mast. Here's an article on it:

    Oso mudslide

    So I've had enough excitement for the summer now. Think I'll spend the rest of it bbq'ing in the back yard and drinking copious quantities of bear.

    So according to a soccer "expert" I heard on sports radio this a.m....

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-06-26 09:36:37

    Because a tie between Deutschland and the U.S. ensures that both teams move on, he suspects that the teams will play serious soccer for the first 45-50 minutes. But if the game is tied at that point, they'll go into major defense mode and just "sorta" kick the ball at each other and walk away good.

    Which is one of the reasons why most Americans don't take soccer seriously. The screwy scoring system make meaningless match-ups like this happen. And often.

    Personally, my attention span for soccer is roughly 9 seconds. If they want my full attention, they'll need to implement these rules:

    1) Get rid of the current scoring system. The number of goals scored means squat. A win simply counts as a win. Play best two out of three rounds and the team moves on.

    2) Immediately kick out any player who flops. If he flops twice in a 3 game span, he's suspended from the tournament. Real athletes and competitors don't flop.

    3) No more ties - especially scoreless ties. Play until someone actually scores a goal, even if it means the players are crawling on their hands and knees and have to shove the ball into the net with their nose. Particularly for playoff games. Abolish that ridiculous, "line up and kick the ball at the goalie until someone wins" crap.

    With these changes, it might turn into a decent sport to watch.

    Thanks. This is the first I've heard of something like this - shows how much attention I paid when I was in school. Is there a committee that selects these peers?

    I just love inaccurate smack talk. You can have some real fun with it making people look foolish. :D

    That's pretty fascinating. Someone put quite a bit of work into that.

    Crap - I'll be out of town at a music festival when this is going on, otherwise I'd be all over it. Thanks for the heads up, though!

    That wouldn't surprise me - as you know, Seattle is one political animal. BUT...

    I think Seattle has a core group of NBA fans probably numbering 5-10,000 (in a population of 3.5 million)

    One of our directors is from Brazil. He was in all of his soccer gear from head to toe yesterday and totally jacked for the game...

    Gratz! That's a fine accomplishment.

    Oregon fans are the worst. THE worst, win or lose.

    Although I agree with you that recruiting need serious improvement, I'm not convinced that the staff focuses on missionary kids.

    Coach Whitt does a pretty good job of separating "church from state" as head coach. Proof is his non-contact rule during missions. He won't be influenced even if someone from the church calls him.

    I think that's already starting to happen. The NCAA is addressing it as part of the "paying student athletes" debate and USC recently announced that it would only offer 4 year scholarships.

    The weird thing about PAC-12 teams is when they are bad, they are REALLY bad.
    (15 days ago, 1 stars)

    Agreed. Teams go through cycles and Cal is on an upswing. Maybe not a fast upswing, but definitely looking up.
    (15 days ago, 1 stars)

    Same with that juggernaut Idaho State. Definitely one to avoid. :P

    Very sorry for your loss - sounded like she was a great Utah fan and you gave her an appropriate farewell.

    Where is "up here?"
    (15 days ago, 0 stars)

    Oh man, that really sucks. I've been there before too, and the best advice I can give you is don't be rash. It's easy to get caught up in the emotion of the moment and make some life-changing mistakes.
    (15 days ago, 14 stars)

    Really can't argue with your points. It'll be an interesting season and there are question marks galore. They could completely tear it up or fall flat on their faces. Time will tell.

    Hey - we're only 3 weeks from the start of training camp, so not too early at all. LOVE to see the football talk start in earnest.

    When he translates being invited to a camp to throwing TD's, not INT's, I'll be impressed.
    (15 days ago, 1 stars)

    Heh...you even mention it and people give you a "huh?" response. Very few people remember it - except the old rockers, I guess.
