Thanks for the uplifting police story. It helps make my morning just a bit better.

Don't forget the Sounders just won their 4th US Open Cup in the last 6 years. This Sounders team has 15 players who have played for their national team at least once. It is a special team and I highly recommend keeping an eye on them as the season heads to the playoffs.

I will have to listen to the Proclaimers song Cap in Hand tonight while drinking a Scotch.

Wow $145 for Stevie Wonder? At the Paramount, I could understand. At Key Arena, no way.

Curious to see the demand for that show.

@1 I'm with you, I'm ready to get that bitter taste of Monday out of my mouth.

In the meantime, I'll be full of laughter and beers.

Wow, just wow... "Extell's president, Gary Barnett, said the zoning law is aimed at creating more affordable housing. In this building, he said, the affordable units will rent for about $15 a square foot, whereas market-rate units will fetch five or six times that."

In my building the smallest apartment is a studio for 368 sq ft. So the affordable monthly rent for this apartment would be $5,520 a month. Let's just estimate high and go with the largest apartment, an 892 sq ft. 2 bedroom. That would be $13,380 a month.

That has to be some kind of typo.

Great read, now I've got to put on Tom Waits for the rest of the afternoon.

"This is the way the world ends/This is the way the world ends/This is the way the world ends/Not with a bang but a Seth Rogen and James Franco buddy comedy."

This plays out like a real-life Cards Against Humanity round.

That was a great game to watch, lots of back and forth action! Next time someone says soccer games are boring 0-0 affairs, show them this game as exhibit A to show they are wrong.
