Any morning when you walk in & Toppy is rocking this jersey, makes for a great day!
This is the jersey Seann William Scott wore in the great movie Goon! Why number 69?
Huge thanks to Brian Robinson from www.arenasolution.org for joining us this morning. Brian has been a very vocal dude since the Sonics were taken from Seattle, and are now in OKC…3 wins away from their first NBA championship (ugh). He headed up Save Our Sonics, and with the news of Chris Hansen wanting to build a new arena, and now Steve Ballmer and the Nordstrom family making it official that they are backing this effort as well…it’s looking more and more likely we might have the Sonics playing in Seattle again one day…and we might welcome a NHL franchise to the Emerald City too! I am so beyond excited that hockey might happen! Today there is a rally that you can attend to let your voice be heard that we want an NBA & NHL franchise! Here is the details:
Rally today at 4pm
Occidental Park -- S Main St & Occidental Ave South

Music from The Presidents of the United States of America, and more!

I have been guilty of doing work at many random places…from the locker room at the hockey rink, to a bar, to the beaches of Hawaii…I love that I can get work done anywhere so long as I have my phone handy. I get so much work done when my wife is shopping and I am walking around with her. Of course I do it in the bathroom, but the biggest offender of that is BJ. I’ll be sitting next to him in the office, then he disappears…and next thing you know…bam! I have a slew of emails from him. My only response to him when I get these: “Make sure you wipe BJ!” What about you? What is the craziest place you have worked from? Here are the texts:
A few years ago, my office job had me working with international companies. I would get emails and calls at all hours. So most of my work was at bars, pubs or the hurricane. Nothing better than dealing with people from Russia wasted at an Irish bar. Cajun
Yes BJ i work from my cabin in non alaska. 160 miles from nearest neighbor. Could not get any better. Just sayin
I got booked for a DUI and was able to hide my phone between my ass cheeks before I was asked to exit the car. Was able to answer emails and texts secretlyfrom my cell.
I fixed my office exchange server from the ski lift on my way to the top.
I'm working naked in my bathroom while getting ready right now!
I love open n clean spaces for work/homework so I will lay blankets out in front yard or use to climb up to roof top weather permitting =] <3 rock girl Amanda
There's a new list of America's MANLIEST cities, and Oklahoma City came in at number one. Seattle came in at number 41 on the list. The list is based on factors like the number of hardware stores, steakhouses, and people in manly occupations. And cities LOSE points for having high numbers of nail salons and fancy boutiques. The top 5 manliest cities are Oklahoma City . . . Columbia, South Carolina . . . Memphis . . . Nashville . . . and Birmingham, Alabama. The 5 least manly U.S. cities are San Diego . . . San Francisco . . . Oakland . . . Boston . . . and Los Angeles.
Based on this…what do you do that makes you “manly”? Or for the ladies…What does your man do that you think is very “manly”? here are the texts we got:
