Seattle Not Feeling So Super

I spent most of the day either on a plane or in a rental car as I had to do some last minute travelling. During my trip, I got a nice picture of the sense of resignation in Seattle when my plane landed at Sea-Tac and the gay, Southwest flight attendant got on the intercom and announced:

"Welcome to Seattle- home of the Oklahoma City Super Sonics."
(And yes, all of the "s" and soft "c" sounds were lisped...not that there's anything wrong with that.)

On the bright side, at least the Sonics' imminent departure gives Seattle fans something to complain about besides the Super Bowl.

While I didn't really catch any sports today, I did hear on the radio that the Yankees acquired Bobby Abreu and Cory Lidle from the Phillies in exchange for minor league players and major payroll relief. Since Steinbrenner is able to print money, this deal obviously is low risk for the Yankees. Besides, I have a hunch that Abreu will see a resurgence in his numbers after a few weeks with Jason Giambi's trainer...

Big Gay Al! Gotta love him. Pinstripes always cure anyone's baseball problems...I expect that to happen with Abreu.
