Rules Schmules

This morning when I left for the gym, there were about 300+ people camped out in a line around the football stadium and most had clearly been there all night. When I came home about an hour and a half later, the crowd had quadrupled. Turns out that tomorrow single tickets for the Seahawks go on sale.

The press release says: "Fans will be permitted to start lining up for tickets at 3 p.m. Sunday, when they will receive wristbands to secure their places in line. Wristbands will be distributed from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. after fans produce valid identification. Overnight camping is prohibited."

So then I went to Twitter where there was a fair amount of bitching about 1. the rules being broken and 2. neither the Seahawks nor the Century Link Field folks doing any enforcement. It's way too sunny and hot out for me to have the blinds open so I'm just guessing that the crowd's getting bigger and will continue to grow until at least 3.

The Mariner game (in Toronto) is underway. The baseball Hall of Fame induction of this year's new members is going on this weekend. Ken Griffey, Jr. started and ended with the Mariners and is their fist player to go into the Hall of Fame. So it's a BFD around here but also because Griffey was just such a fun player and is still a great guy. Nice.

I just read that Verizon is buying Yahoo tomorrow. No one is being specific about what parts of Yahoo. My only concern really is Flickr. I'd just as soon Flickr not be owned by Verizon BUT I'd much rather it be owned by Verizon and allowed to continue than shut down. Since Google fucked up their photo offering, I don't really have a plan b for my pictures.

I'll probably make some dolls after the game is over and then do some knitting. Last evening, I watched a really nice little movie "The Fundamentals of Caring".
