Ugh…tough loss for the Hawks yesterday. I don’t think I’m alone in wishing that next season could start right now. I don’t care about the rest of the playoffs…I just want to pick up where the Hawks left off…so much optimism for this team. Russell Wilson let the country know what a star in the making we have in the 206. This guy is a blast to watch, he put the offense on his back yesterday and almost led the team to an improbable comeback. Down 20-0 going into the half…down 27-7 going into the 4th, only for the Hawks to take the lead with 31 seconds left in the game….I loved this shot of the crowd…the look of disbelief that the Falcons were about to lose yet another playoff game:
Only that wasn’t the case as the Hawks lost a few plays later with a field goal. Heartbreaking describes it best. But, I would rather not dwell on that…this was an amazing seaon…I have been watching the Hawks since I was a kid, and fell in love with Steve Largent. I have watched every game on TV or in the stands for thew 15 years I have lived here, I was a season ticket holder for 5 years…and I have to say, this team this year was the most fun team I have ever watched. I am positive that the Hawks will win the Super Bowl soon…I think next year…sadly though, not this year.
I thought this was awesome…when the team came home, over 500 fans were waiting to welcome them back! Reading the players tweets, you can tell they were touched by the 12th Man…I love how classy that is…even in defeat our fans have nothing but love for the Seahawks. That is the beauty of sports, it brings people that usually don’t know or care about each other together…the Hawks did that for all of us this year. I loved seeing this tweet from Richard Sherman:
Thanks to @rodmarphoto on Twitter for posting this awesome pic of Sherman hanging with the fans!
I am not the only one bummed about the Hawks losing…my pup Lulu is also sad that her team is done for the year…
Thankfully hockey season starts next week…she is ready for it! Go Devils!
Yesterday the Golden Globes went down…I opted to miss it…I just can’t handle award show when there is no musical act performing in every segment. The big news from the awards show was that Jodie Foster kind of sort of came out. Jodie got the Cecile B. Demille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes last night, and she gave a very long speech where she SORT OF came out of the closet, and then talked about how much she misses the days when actors and actresses had more privacy. Here's the speech:
In other confession news…Rumor has it that Lance Armstrong allegedly confesses to doping on Oprah’s show this Thursday. The interview is being taped today. Sources say that the cyclist plans to admit to doping throughout his career but probably will not get into great detail about specific cases and events.
Based on Jodie Foster’s roundabout-confession about being gay and the rumor that Lance Armstrong is planning on confessing that he did use performance-enhancing drugs…what is your confession? What was something that you once had to confess to, or something that someone confessed to you? Or what is something that you have never confessed to, but want to right now? Here are the texts we got:
My girlfriend told me she was pregnamt right after we had done stuff. Im a girl...
I have been planning to divorce my wife for almost a year and am wanting to confess that and then do it
I love Broadway musicals.
My bud confessed to me that he banged my mom when we were in high school…I still haven’t talked to him. Been 10 years
Hey guys, I'm a grown ass man 6'4" 250lbs and I cried after the hawks lost yesterday :(.
A new study out of the University of Central Lancashire in England found that being bored at work is actually GOOD for you and your company. It gives you time to DAYDREAM…and that leads to more CREATIVITY….For example…In one study, 40 volunteers were asked to copy numbers from a telephone directory for 15 minutes. Once they completed that boring task, they were asked to come up with different uses for a pair of Styrofoam cups. These volunteers were more creative in the cup task than a group of 40 people who had not done a boring task before being asked to come up with uses for the cups. This suggests that more passive, boring activities -- such as reading or attending meetings -- provide more opportunity for daydreaming, resulting in increased creativity, the researchers said.
What about you? What do you do to cure boredom while at work? Also…why is your job boring? Here are the texts we received:
I text, call, and Tweet KISW when I'm bored. I do data entry and I can perform beyond expectations without trying. –Bjorn
I work in retail and there is often down time so I like to write poetry on receipt paper while I'm walking around waiting to help people , I have planed parties, and I have even planned out a whole new budget for my finances!!
I surf Reddit to stave off boredom while working. Driving around all day really isn't that thrilling, so while I'm whipping around I5 I look at cat pictures.
I get board at work so I go into the bathroom and get high workin in a machine shop.is very boaring

Over the weekend I watched the second episode of The 206 – this is the new sketch comedy show by a couple of Almost Live alums: John Kiester and Pat Cashman, along with Pat’s son Chris…and once again, I LOVED it. They are doing a great job with this show…which you can watch after SNL on Saturday nights on KING 5. Here was my favorite bit from The 206 this past week:
