You've all finally done it. You've driven me out. Hope your happy.
I'm taking a little me-time (well, we-time if you include my wife). We're heading to Seattle for a few days. I'd love to tell you that we're going to go sight-seeing, visit a wolf sanctuary, hike Mt. Rainer and drink coffee at Pike's Market while throwing a fish. But the truth is...I'm there to scout. I am on a fact-finding mission on behalf of all Cuse Nation. I want to know who these Washington Huskies are, what they know and how they know it before the Orange come to town in September. I'm setting up camp right outside Husky Stadium and I'm not leaving until I know Jake Locker's pants size.
Though, to be fair, some of that other stuff might come up. Depends on how things go. So...let's play it by ear.
All is not lost though. I'm leaving you in very capable hands. Well...uh...I'm leaving you in hands. That much I know. Adam a.k.a. VotePrime is going to be tending to things while I'm gone. Be nice to him. Or don't. I don't care.
I'm also counting on you guys to keep the FanPosts and FanShots flowing.
I'll be checking in from time to time but for the most part I'll be one with nature for the next six days, returning next Tuesday. By then you'll have crowned a new National Champion, Charley Loeb will be the starting quarterback and Scoop Jardine will have announced that he's going pro. You'll no longer recognize the world that we both knew each other in. We'll say our hellos and give knowing glances. But for us...the dream shall have passed.
Or I'll just come back and make fun of Doug Marrone's vocabulary and all will be right with the world.
Good day, sirs and madams. Go Sounders!
(And of course, if you have out-of-the-way must-sees or hidden gems that I simply must do, let me know. I'll be happy to poo-poo your wonderful idea. Just don't tell me to go up the Space Needle.)
