Saved by ESPN?

I ran into the guy who rents the condo next door to mine (aka Hunter, the whacko baker). Apparently his rent just got raised because of the assessment charged Noel (the guy who owns the unit). Hunter asked me if there really was an assessment or if he was being had. I assured him that he was getting the straight poop. He said that he expected a big hike when the waterfront* was finished (which was supposed to be spring of 2015 - no clue what the new date is) and sky rocket once the downtown tunnel was open and the viaduct comes down (which was supposed to be in 2016 but ain't going to happen in this decade and probably not the first half of the next one).

*They tore it up to fix the seawall and other non-glamorous maintenance which they have fucked up beyond imagination.

If/when they do get everything fixed and finished, these condos could really skyrocket in value. But, I'm not sure I know anyone young enough now to be alive when that happens.

My brother told me today that one of his techs is leaving. This time it's not for 4 or 5 months - I'm guessing next February-ish so they have tons of time to plan which is great. But I'll miss Thomas. He's a Jehovah's Witness and he really wants to go down to Panama to Witness. It's very very sweet of him to give my brother such much notice and help in planning how to replace him. My brother and Thomas and Bryant (his other tech) are looking at a bunch of different options - maybe even changing the business. It all sounds very healthy to me.

Twitter says that tonight's Mariner game will be on ESPN and may not be blacked out here which means I can watch it on TV without the asshole announcer. Nice.
