commented on The Seahawks Have No Chill, Openly Talking About Trading Richard Sherman
i agree with the bleach in eyes sentiment re seeing sherm on the pats, but really, 2+ years later i cant believe there are any serious hawks fans that really think they should have done something else on the 1 in sb49. pass plays worked approx 50% of the time in equivalent scenarios for the hawks and all nfl teams that season. butler made a great play. end of story. we put up a great fight. time to move on, not be bitter about what we "should" have done, and most importantly, build to hopefully hold a candle to NEs 2000s legacy.
commented on Seattle Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal Won't Be Attending the Inauguration
i've admired jayapal's public service these past few years but have never had a chance to vote for her (lived in the 43rd when she won the 37th seat, now live in the 9th rather than the 7th...). throughout the past election, i prefered her over walkinshaw, but would not have been crushed if the results worked out the other way. watching her today and these past two weeks, however, has been galvanizing in a way i was not anticipating. she knocked it out of the park at the #OurFirstStand rally today, and seems to strike an incredible balance between the fire of 2015-2016 bernie and the universal appeal of 04/08/12/16 barack. she's going to be thrilling to watch these next few years. i look forward to supporting her policy efforts as best i can and selfishly am excited to see how her energy affects my congress member, adam smith.
