Seahawks Super Bowl XLVIII photoblog: Day 2

An evening in Super Bowl Boulevard

 

Took a photo of these yesterday and they didn't turn out but they are so cool I had to go back and try it again.  I'd like to buy them but they aren't $200 cool to me.

Ran into these two guys again today.  They must really like Macy's.

Marshawn Lynch running wild, I did have a little talk with him about the way he was handling the ball.  I said, "I know you're 'Bout that action boss' but you need to remember to hold the ball high and tight!"

This gamer looked like he was taking the action a little too far when he started punching his girl friend.  He didn't really but in the photo it sure looks like he was going to.

This is the Camaro that "Papa" John Schnatter paid $250,000 for.  This is the actual car that he drove when he founded the pizza chain.  No wonder he was able to get customers their pizza quickly.

This is someone from KIRO but I don't know who.  Figured someone would know.

Having the Empire State Building lit up in orange did not make me a very happy Camper.  The Nation thinks the Bronco's will win.  Guess what?  They are wrong! Go Seahawks!

The day after my arrival

 

Seahawks taking over Macy's on 34th Street!

As you walked into the front door of Macy's on 34th street you were greater by a pale and faceless 12th man.

Jake Locker turned his back on the media.  Tomorrow I'm heading over to the league offices to inform them.

Russell Wilson looks very focused.  I tried talking to him for 12 minutes but he never even looked at me.

Ran into Russell Wilson upstairs and this time he just ran away from me.  Saw Peyton Manning up there too but he's not as mobil and I ran into him on accident and nearly knocked him over.  That is the most pressure Manning has seen all post season.

Looks like I wasn't the only one Russell Wilson was avoiding today.

Things got a little tense in a Seahawks vs. Broncos standoff.  Don't worry guys, I got your back! Go Seahawks!

Divisional Playoffs: Saints vs Seahawks Gameday Weather

 

W is for Win… and WindyWindy

Mother Nature sure is making things easy for me today! We have two disturbances moving through the area, one Friday night through Saturday morning (early morning) and one Saturday evening through Sunday morning. Both systems are bringing in heavy rain and moderate to heavy winds for all day Saturday.

As far as the game is concern… remember when the Seahawks traveled to Carolina (I believe 2008?) and the game was a low scoring affair because neither kicker could kick into the wind? I believe we will have a repeat of that tomorrow! Your gameday weather will be almost exactly what you see when you venture on out and head toward the game: wind, wind and more wind with periods of heavy rain. Temps will also be dropping by the time the game starts. Right now at time of post (Friday night at 11pm), temps were in the upper 40’s to lower 50’s for most of Western Washington. Game time high expected to be around 45-47 degrees. As always, I’ll update this post with some “nowcasting” before the game starts and during the game if something big happens.

So dress warm, wear those loud shoes and loud gloves and be ready to shout louder than the howl of the wind! #GoHawks
