Some days the universe just seems to smile on me.
Today was one of those days.
At about 9:45 this morning I was enjoying a new book, firmly ensconced in my comfy leather chair.
At 9:46, my buddy Ted Walsh texted me to ask whether Finn and I would like to go check out the Seahawks training facility in Renton. I agreed. Fifteen minutes later we were on our way.
I was sure to tell Finn that we were unlikely to see any players, this being the day before game day and all.
Boy was I wrong.
Upon arriving we were ushered in to the indoor practice field. Player sightings: all of ’em. And for the better part of an hour I hung out right next to Russell Wilson’s girlfriend Ciara.
Then it got hard to believe.
Turns out that Ted’s buddy is the Seahawks equipment manager. As in “hello, Seahawks locker room.” Upon entering we all but stumbled over Marshawn Lynch. Finn even shook his hand. After that it was Luke Willson, John Ryan and Russell Wilson.
Not a bad morning.
