"Deuces" -Pete Carroll
He doesn't say anything really interesting about it. I just think it's funny that reporters have to ask Pete Carroll questions about pot and Pete Carroll has a boring stock answer for it because it's coincidentally relevant to a major sporting event. We live in a silly word, you guys. It's pretty cool.

Look at this little goof ball
So, I'm pretty sure a bunch of undergrad science buds duped some universities into giving them a bunch of cash to hang out together and party in South America. Then at the end, somebody asked what their findings were, and they said, "You know that loud noise frogs are always making? Turns out bears hear it feed too."
Being a scientist sounds cool.

I bet all of our non sport friendos are excited to hear about the Seahawks and the Super Bowl for the next month or so. I apologize in advance for the position by position breakdowns I'll be posting over the next two weeks. The frame by frame breakdown of the final play of Sunday's NFC Championship game I'm planning for next week probably won't be of much interest to you either.

I'm not really going to write any of those things I said up there. I'm not some kind of sports nerd. The Seahawks are going to come up in the blog a lot in the next few weeks because this almost never happens. If you don't like sport, I don't expect you to understand, but I grew up here watching our sports teams lose. Winning a major sports championship never felt like a real possibility until 2006. After we lost that game, and then the Sonics two years later, if felt like Seattle wasn't supposed to win. These Seahawks make me feel like we can't lose. It's a good feeling. Having a winning team can do a lot for morale if you're into sports. It's not too late to join in the fun. You don't have to know anything about football, or do any work, you just have to want a win.

Yeah it's all right, but my Taurus has character.
During yesterday's show Luke talked about that weird kid thing he did where he imagined a giant saw blade extending out of the car and buzzing down the outside world. It made me remember the weird kid thing I did that was like that, but not that. Sometimes I would just notice where my feet were pointed and think, "what would happen if bullets just started shooting out of my feet right now?" If I was pointing them at anyone I would find new directions to point my feet guns. To this day, if I happen to notice that my foot is pointed directly at someone's head, I will move it.
You were a little weirdo too, I bet.

All right, I'll settle down. I think I used up my caps lock allotment for the next month. Golden Globes happened. Right? I know how you guys feel about sport. I feel the same way about the Golden Globes. Tell me who won and what that means to you, but I don't need to watch. I watched the opening monologue online today because you know, these two:
I'm talking about the Golden Globes because I knew there would be AP photos.
It's always harder to find photos for the blog than I think it will be. I have to get Associated Press photos because there are laws about pictures on the internet that I don't understand. Someone told me I can't get in trouble if I use an AP photo, so I always do. Fun fact: I find at least half of the photos I use on the Toledo Blade website. I'm starting to think they don't have a photographer on staff. Tough times at the Toledo Blade.
Listen to today's show to learn more about those Seahawks tickets.
