Get those kids back in school ! Back in my time we had no time for such folderol. I had to cut a cord of wood before dawn and had to walk 20 miles through snowdrifts in -20 degree weather and had to run home at noon to milk the cows.

And you darn whippersnappers get off my lawn !:mad:

Angelo, Thanks for posting this. I followed much of the parade on KIRO streaming down here in Napa today. Fascinating to think that 700,000 people showed up to celebrate this event. I have often told my friends in the various places I've lived from Omaha, to Kansas City, to Reno, to the Bay Area, "the best sports fans in the world come from Seattle." I have fond memories of boisterous and noisy crowds when Seattle U played BYU and Texas Western before the Sonics, UW football before the Seahawks. I think we Seattle boys (and I still consider myself an unabashed example of that phenotype) are the noisiest, most loyal and grateful sports fans anywhere. I am not sure how we measure up to the Italians in their devotion to soccer, but it has to be close! What a great day for the city of Seattle. Long overdue, and those fans deserve it.

In more ways than one, Sili. Memo from work not too long ago:


Who is affected
All Staff

When
Today, Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014

What is happening
We are experiencing slow response time with internal web applications due to high internet usage (including streaming of the Seahawks parade). In order to decrease the load on our network bandwidth, please close all video streams.


Killing productivity all over Washington State. It's a wonderful thing.

Well, it wasn't yesterday's Parade but over the weekend I did get photo bombed on ESPN's NFL Live which was broadcasting from Super Bowl Blvd in New York. Was off to the side (and not in the throngs trying to get on TV) talking to my wife on the phone when she said "I see you" .... had no idea I was on TV. The red Antarctic parka was easy for her to spot.

I know this can't be right, but it appears that you are holding a stuffed toy shark.

Go to photobucket.com open an account and upload pics and videos and copy link and insert them with the picture and film strip heading.

Funny.

But, I think that it is just the business end of his salt water tackle gear, the rest must be broken down. We do a lot of fishing here and maybe he was worried that he might miss a run.

The "12" looks a little crumpled on my shirt .... but all I'm holding in my right hand is a shopping bag from the NFL Shop at Macy's, which seemed to me to be more crowded than yesterday's parade.

Packer fan actually. My dislike started with the fail mary. Pete Carroll doesn't help. Still, the team is mostly classy and the fans certainly needed to win one so congratulations.

Nice shots what camera and lens?

canon 6d and 24-105 f4 & 70-200 f4.

thought i would be using the telephoto and cropping like crazy, but i was close enough to where almost everything was shot with the 24-105

Your shots are better than the Seattle times shots!

Very professional
