One year ago, today, a massive hole was left in the middle of me. In a single moment, laughter and joy, happiness and the smiles that go with it, were all taken away.
You never fully realize, then your little furry friends are alive, just how much of a part of you they are. The […]
One fine day, our illustrious sometime-blogger, sometime-gamer found himself buried deep in the realm of Skyrim. There were dragons to fight, bandits, vampires, werewolves, and idiots who say “What was that?” when struck in the head with an arrow. It was a wonderful land, and the blog-gamer was having a great time there, but he […]
It was an interesting evening. Called into action only two days before “the event” by my good friend, Ryan Sales (http://salesonsounders.com/, http://cheekybackheel.com/, http://www.prostamerika.com/category/sounders-fc) as the Cheeky Photographer, I knew I would have my job cut out for me. I looked forward to the evening – my first actual […]
I put in my notice last week.
To those of us who work in “The Industry” (ok, any ‘industry’), the ‘notice’ is a big thing. Two weeks to clean out your desk, clean out your cube, and erase all trace that you were ever there, while simultaneously attempting to pass on the collected knowledge of […]
I’ve been a gamer for about 23, maybe 24 years. And I’ve played a metric ton of titles in that near-quarter-century. So it occurred to me: “I should make a list of the games I’ve played, maybe say a little about them.” Now, I know you’re asking yourself, “Why in the world would anyone do […]
It was a night of two games.
The Cascade Shale took the pitch, and came out swinging. From the whistle, the Sounders went on the offensive, but throughout the first half, something seemed off. They won the duels, but rattled shots off the boards, something wasn’t right. Energy seemed almost like it was waning fast, […]
It’s been posited that a ‘mere’ One-Nil loss to Tigres UANL should be accepted as a good thing. The sports pundits would have us believe that the Sounders were strong to escape Mexico with such a small margin of loss in a game against what can arguably be counted as Mexico’s greatest team, this season. […]
The start of this season builds in me a solid hope that the Sounders FC will gel over time. A fervent wish within my Blue and Green heart is that the ‘gelling’ will happen quickly. But wearing away at these hopes and wishes is a fear: is the picture we’re getting of our beloved team […]
I find myself in the midst of multiple hobbies these days. Photographer, Puppy Rescuer, Reader, Gamer, Expired-TV-Watcher. If I blogged a little more often, I suppose I could add “Blogger” to that list. But it seems, lately, the foremost among these is “Puppy Rescuer”.
The Georgia Peaches got some new puppies […]
It’s not often I come home from a Sounders game and say to my wife “Well, I want those two hours back.” Last night was such a night.
A resounding, crushing defeat from a club that had never before posed a threat, delivered from On High with smiting force upon the Seattle Sounders. That’s […]
