You are one of the lucky ones.Thankfully, I had no issues moving our hotel reservations around.
About 100% I'm afraid.We thought our logic was sound. I mean, the only thing that would stop us from seeing Vancouver and Alaska in 2020 would be something like a world-wide outbreak of a deadly virus, and what are the odds of that?
None at all. And I'd have believed it too.Scotty gave an impromptu press conference as well. “We believe there is absolutely no basis for concern over any deadly pandemics for at least the next 25 years…”
Such a cool tradition!! I'm not into sports at all, but this thing is pretty nifty for fans.They also got to go up in the famous “12th Man” tower. Before every Seahawks game, a lucky fan or a celebrity raises the “12th Man” flag signifying the crowd’s role in a home field advantage (a football team has 11 players on the field at any one time). This usually helps whip the crowd into a frenzy.
The game plan of the aliens who will invade next week as an encore for 2020's performance so far?For extra bonus points, can anyone tell me what is on Scotty’s t-shirt?
Brilliant!!This was one of the better tourist photo ops I’ve ever seen. But if you look closely, there’s both a ball in the glove and one in the background flying into the crowd. So it’s an out and a home run at the same time. Or maybe the outfielder is cheating.
But... and outfielder (team) cheating? Now what? You're gonna tell me m 401K is going to recover soon?
I was just getting to that. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry at this.We also had the opportunity to give a press conference of our own. “We are fully confident in the stock market, and have zero concerns about Sarah’s college account being wiped out just 6 months before we have to start making payments for her…”
Continued two posts down because @pkondz messed up the order.
Your thread is so fun to mess with, Monk. A few years ago it was me.
I felt a little bit badly. For a few minutes.
good one!Most of their efforts didn’t pan out. Pun fully intended.
Didn't know that!! Interesting.Seattle is one of only 3 cities to have a monorail in use as a daily transit system. The others are Jacksonville, Florida and Las Vegas, NV
Of course it was!Between that and the light rail, it probably broke even between that and parking our van downtown. But I bet our way was more fun.
I have always wondered the same thing.How come they don’t have World’s Fairs anymore? I feel like I’m missing out by never having seen one. They sound like they would appeal to my nerdy side.
But this year we are having one. Attendance is pretty low though.
But my one son, Horace, wanted no part of it (name changed to protect his identity).
I'd have given a LOT to have seen that!! You have scored so many surprise bonuses on this trip!! That had to be just so, so amazing!The Blue Angels had just buzzed the tower. I was late on the draw getting a photo, but…
Yeah, I can see that. And wish I could have seen it!…that has to be in the Top 5 coolest things I’ve ever seen in my life. They seemed so close to us!
How lucky that you got to be UP in there at that exact time. Kinda glad the line was long now? Hmm?
I was pretty impressed myself. And would go back again too.Unequivocally, yes. No way in h-e-double hockey sticks I could ever do this stuff.
