So what is Treasure? The NFL Lombardi trophy.
OK, so I’ve been Seahawks crazy for the last month, but let me explain why. The Seahawks are pretty much responsible for my marriage. It’s true! My wife and I first dated when someone gave her free tickets to a game. It was 49ers vs. Hawks. I was never much of a football fan then: being a Detroit transplant, hockey was king (though I was way more a Pistons fan). But my wife has always enjoyed football (though she didn’t know the rules), and I promised to come with.
Anyway, football has always been part of our relationship. Guess what we wore at the wedding rehearsal? Yup. Football jerseys. I even tracked down a copy of the cap I wore to our first game because the one I wore got lost on a plane at some point.
My wife even had me twist balloons for her class. Guess what she requested?
So, yes, the Lombardi is our awesome treasure. It is both a fun sports thing to happen, and a great hobby the two of us love to share. We got to see it live at the downtown parade last week, an event my wife insisted was worth taking the day off for.
A moss covered fountain somewhere in Seattle. The owner wants it cleaned up, but I think that there’s a natural beauty about it, as if it were some ancient ruin waiting to be discovered. The vegetation might clog up the pipes, though … so there’s that. Submitted for the Weekly Photo Challenge: OBJECT.
A quick heads up for those who care: I am moving all of my Transformers-related posts to a new blog: Till All Are Fun. Come on over for crazy toy observations, stuff about the comics, movies and TV shows, and the collecting hobby in general.
