It's all Marshawn Lynch all the time today...but before I get to that... I want to share this trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2, as it has a great connection to Sunday's game. I am pretty pumped to see this movie...I loved the first one...but after watching this trailer, I don't know if I should use the word "pumped" to illustrate my excitement!
Once again Marshawn Lynch is the talk of the sports world for…well..not wanting to talk to the media. Man, his press conference was AWESOME yesterday. I love how he makes it very clear what his intentions are for this press conference from the minute he sits down…
I know many of us in the North West find humor in this, but of course on a national level…people don't get it. I saw a bunch of my east coast buds saying mean things about Lynch on social media, all because of this press conference. I think that is beyond stupid that people will base an opinion on someone because of a press conference. I base my opinion him from moments like this… Check out Marshawn's conversation with Entertainment Tonight's special correspondent Michelle Williams.
I love this because A. Because he is an awful singer like me. And B. Because of what he does for kids.
Marshawn Lynch has been able to take his silence with the media and turn it into another endorsement deal. This time, he stars in a commercial for Progressive with ESPN's Kenny Mayne.
Finally…thanks to Hot Kyle for sending me this ridiculous and awesome video. According to this porcupine (named Teddy Bear), the Seahawks are going to win the Super Bowl. It has correctly predicted the winner of the Super Bowl for the last three years.
Hey, gang! Take some time out of your busy day to enjoy some Group Therapy! Someday, the Rock-A-Holic who needs help may be YOU!
We're hoping to offer some assistance to Kim, who has a boyfriend with a 7-year-old son. The kid's mom insists on dressing the young man in shirts that say things like COOL DUDE COMIN' THROUGH, and Kim thinks it's just ridiculous.
For her part, Kim buys the kid some "cooler" clothes when she and his father have custody of him – half of each week – but those clothes go back to his mom's house when he leaves, and they never seem to come back. Kim wants the mom to step up her dressing game, and she also wants to see her own purchases return. If not, she thinks the mom should pay up to make up for it!
Kim, you're heading into dangerous territory here. Like it or not, the kid's mom is his mom, and she's just doing her job. You're not even his stepmother! This is NOT YOUR KID. It's great that you want to be involved with your boyfriend's son, but you make it sound like more of a Cool Kid Contest that you're desperate to win.
Competitive Girlfriend Comin' Through!
Let's hear it from you, cool kids! Is Kim overstepping her boundaries, or is my attitude just out of fashion?
Yesterday, Marshawn Lynch won the internet…hands down. He did a press conference yesterday where he had plenty to say. Was he being interviewed by reporters for the Super Bowl? Of course not! He was interviewed by Skittles…
If you aren't following me on twitter, you really are missing out on some special entertainment that takes less than 140 characters to read. It's a true extension of the intelligence I bring onto the airwaves…
I tried to jokingly text "Yolo", and my phone auto corrected it to "tool." I think my phone was telling me something.
Hey, kids! Do you like a sporting organization that openly practices double standards, and demonstrates hypocrisy on a regular basis? Look no further than the National Football League!
While the New England Patriots seem to be avoiding trouble, despite the controversy over their saggy balls, our own Marshawn Lynch was recently fined $22,000 for grabbing his crotch during a game, with a warning that the Seahawks will be penalized in game yardage (15 yards per offense) if Lynch does it doing the Super Bowl.
MEANWHILE, the NFL online shop is currently sold out of a framed picture that includes a shot of Marshawn's fineable grab; that's right, the NFL was more than happy to profit from the crotch-grab, to the tune of $150 a pop!
I have no love for the grabbing of one's crotch as a public gesture, but I'm also not a fan of people profiting from hypocrisy. The NFL says the photo collage was an oversight, which is just a lame excuse for being caught out in arrogant, morally deficient behavior.
I have to say…watching the footage of all the Seahawks fans lining the streets around SeaTac to send off the team was pretty damn cool. The love this town has for the team is pretty awesome, and it's cool to see how much love the players have for the fans. I got a kick out of seeing all the players recording the fans on the streets as they drove by. Here is a video that Malcolm Smith posted…
As soon as they got off the plane in Arizona, a bunch of the players were thrown right into the fire for a press conference. Once again Richard Sherman made some news for his comments on if he thinks the Patriots will be punished for the deflated balls controversy…
The hightlight of his press conference though, was him getting annoyed with a reporter…telling him that his question was on a pre-school level (he asked Richard if he thought he was still the best corner in the game).
Finally, I have to give a big thank you to my friend Angel. She had a meeting with Jordan Hill of the Seahawks, and our station came up & how I am a big fan…so Jordan sent me a message….
Today's blog comes from one of my mentors, Dan Sanders,
Why do those three totally unrelated topics seem to fit together so well? Let us start with Oreos. Red Velvet is here, a red-tinged chocolaty cookie with a cream cheese-type filling instead of the traditional filling. These cookies are set to hit stores nationwide on February 2, Groundhog Day. This does not mean I'll make a hog out of myself, but I am planning on following the delivery truck and stockpiling since the Red Velvet Oreo will be sold only for six to eight weeks. While much to the horror of many, I'm sure, I have never been a big Oreo fan, but this one I will try.
Before we get to Justin Bieber, let us speak for a minute about deflated balls (now stay with me and don't get confused. I mean footballs, of course). Even non-sports fans must have heard about this story. The NFL discovered that 11 of the 12 footballs the Patriots used to trounce the Colts were underinflated by 2 pounds. Imagine 32 ounces of pigskin making a 45-7 win possible when in fact the Patriots would have won 21-7 if all they had were LeGarrette Blount's 3 rushing touchdowns. That's rushing, not throwing and catching, but rushing, as in running and running. In high school our coach use to throw what felt like rocks at us in practice because it got us ready for regulation footballs, which were somewhat softer and easier to catch than the hard ones in practice. Softer footballs, which are also easier to intercept if you can get your hands on them, wouldn't explain this 38-point difference. Cheating is cheating, though, and there will be more on that in the podcast.
Now from deflated balls to no, er, what is the word? Hmm. Ah, nuts. Comedy Central is going to roast Justin Bieber. It's unclear whether he will be skewered first, but one can always hope. It seems the Biebe has always wanted to be skewered, I mean roasted, and Comedy Central said the only reason it hasn't been done yet is there was not enough material until now. The date has not been set, but I have a line for the roasting: when Justin lays an egg, he throws it at his neighbor's house (crowd erupts with laughter, Bieber cackles).
I have no idea what else will be on the shores of Rambling Harbor, but join me there and we'll find out together.

We heard from Will, who recently learned that his daughter has been keeping a secret: she's a stripper!
Will's daughter lives with a friend, and she told her parents that they both work at a bar as servers. On a recent night out with the guys, Will learned the truth in the worst way possible: he actually saw his daughter performing at the strip club that he and his buddies had chosen for their evening entertainment. Will immediately departed, and he managed to make it out before his daughter spotted him.
Will didn't say if his friends stayed at the gentlemen's club or not. Personally, if I saw a friend's daughter stripping in a club, I would evacuate at a high rate of speed. An enemy's daughter…well, that's a different situation, but let's stay on topic.
Speaking as a father, my own daughter has been independent since she was fairly young, and I love her for that, but there have definitely been times when I wondered if she might take that path, if only to prove that she could make her own decisions. If things ever went that way, I would love her regardless; that being said, I think most parents would prefer a different life path for their children.
Here's the problem: Will hasn't told his wife about their daughter's secret, and the daughter doesn't know that he found out in the first place. Heck, we're not even sure if Will's wife is aware that he was at a strip club with his buddies.
Rock-A-Holics, this guy needs some serious advice, so let's hear what you have to say! I'm especially interested in hearing from strippers who have struggled with telling their family the truth!
The trend continues! I have more Seahawks videos to share with you, and this one is a MUST WATCH! NFL Films put together a recap of the game against the packers, and it not only includes some awesomely shot footage…but the players are mic'ed up. To hear the players on the field…especially Russell and Kam…is pretty damn cool. I ain't gonna lie…watching this got me fired up for this morning. If you are a Hawks fan, you have to check this out!
Group Therapy is going to the dogs! Well…okay, it's going to the dogs on a shared custody basis, so that's one-week-on-one-week-off. I hope that's an agreeable plan for all you Rock-A-Holics out there.
Today's topic comes from Tom, who was in a serious relationship with a woman for four years. Two years into the relationship, they got a dog together. Sounds really cute, right?
Well, they broke up recently, and they were really unsure about what they should do with the hound. They arrived at a solution that has them sharing custody, with the dog going back and forth every week. As you might expect, Tom is dating other people now, and he says that the new girlfriends in his life are irritated by the canine rotation. They believe he is using the dog as an excuse to keep the girlfriend in his life, in the hope that they'll eventually get back together.
Is it weird to share custody of a pet? I know Seattle is a very animal-friendly city, but this one is a little bit beyond my own personal experience. Rock-A-Holics, we need you to sound off and give Tom some doggone* good advice!
*-I am so very sorry for that terrible joke. Really. That one was RUFF, and I know it.
So every day I have been posting fun Seahawks related videos on my blog for a while now…and I will continue to do until the Super Bowl (and hopefully past it as well to bask in the victory). My buddy Levi texted me this video he put together that I thought was very cool.
Levi is a concert promoter (Lyon Pride Music), plus he has a party bus company – which I highly recommend as I have used it in the past and they are beyond cool to work with – and they set up their new party bus by Century Link Field for a tailgate party. Check out the video…
Here is another video of their new huge bus…it looks amazing! Sorry, I geek out about this type of stuff…I'm a fan of being able to have a fun night and no that no one needs to drive!
My hockey team used his bus to go to Spokane for our hockey tournament, and we can't wait to do it again this year!
Speaking of Levi, he has a show coming up this Saturday that looks like a fun one… Powerman 5000 and (HED)Pe are playing this Saturday at El Corazon…here is the flyer…
