Pearl Jam played a show the other night in Spokane, and Eddie Vedder got to shave off a fan's dreadlocks in exchange for playing his song request. This guy's dreadlocks reached down to his waist, and he wanted the band to play "Brain of J", so that he could head bang to the song with his dreads one last time!
Is it weird for me to say that I would let Eddie shave my head if I had hair for that same opportunity?
Based on this…finish this sentence: "I wish video existed of the time I did ____." Or… "I am so glad I caught on video the time I did _____."
For me…I am sooooo glad that video exists of the time I passed out live on the air! It's a great story to share, but the fact I have video makes it even better! This was from the time I was on the Andy Savage show, and I got my eyebrow pierced…enjoy:
Here are some of the texts we got:
I wished i got on video that i kicked the football into a basketball hoop
Wish video was available when I did a friends mom at the lake so I would have proof!
Could have put Warren Miller out of business if I had a Go Pro when I was younger.
Im so glad i got me doing a 22 second keg stand on my wedding night... I was hammered
When I nailed my best friends mom. Destroyed tape next day
When Snoop Dogg passed me his blunt from the stage in the middle of "What's My Name"
Oh man what a game yesterday! HUGE HUGE HUGE win for the Seahawks yesterday on the national spotlight! Man I love this team…they looked like monsters yesterday taking down the Saints 34-7. It was supposed to be the battle of the 2 best teams in the NFC, but the battle switched to beat down quick! So many great moments happened during the game…from Russell Wilson's performance, to the Legion Of Boom, to Michael Bennett's awesome fumble return for a Touchdown, to Derrick Coleman's TD when he caught it after it bounced off a teammates helmet, to the 12th Man breaking the noise record, I could go on and on and on…but the ultimate highlight came from one of the officials…
He meant to say "Switching out balls", but due to the microphone hiccup (I think), it came out like he said "Stretching our balls" – now we know why the officials huddle up so many times during the game to "discuss a play" – waka waka!
Needless to say… Go Hawks!
The one Seattle athlete that needs to shut up is Taijuan Walker – Tai is a pitcher for the Mariners, who apparently is a Saints fan, and he had one of those moments when you regret hitting send on a tweet. Look, I have no issue with him being a Saints fan, but to bitch about a fellow Seattle star athlete is probably not the best way to endear him to the Seattle sports fans. When Richard Sherman tossed a Saints player down on the ground and got penalized for it…Taijuan tweeted that Sherman is a punk… after he tweeted it, he soon deleted the tweet due to the backlash he received.
Thankfully when I tried finding the tweet, I found that Aaron Levine of Q13 retweeted it, and while doing the search I found an old tweet from Taijuan…look at the difference a few months makes, especially when they are playing your favorite team!
Christmas came early for me! If you been keeping up on my blog, I have been talking about getting my goalie mask painted by the very talented David Leroux! Check out his mask art, as he does a lot of pro goalies masks, at www.dielairbrush.ca .
Well I got a message from him with the finished product…check it out, I am so pumped to wear this!
Over the weekend my wife and our friends Jenny & Tyler went to Zoo Lights in Tacoma. We haven't been there in a few years and it was a great time!
I love this set up…got me pumped for tonight's game!
I don't know why this picture cracks me up…but it does:
While there, we popped into the aquariam…how crazy is this guy? He's cleaning the tank…that has SHARKS in it!

Here is part one of our interview with Faizon!
Here is the same vlog if you are looking at this on your phone….
BJ shared a messed up story this morning. Tomorrow is Thankgiving, and we talked about how many people are more excited for left-overs as opposed to the actual meal…I get it, nothing beats a cold turkey sandwich…so damn good! So BJ apparently is not even having turkey dinner tomorrow…his family is having chicken.
Wrong effing bird BJ…a chicken? C’mon man...cook a turkey! One texter summed it up perfectly…
Cooking chicken on thanksgiving... terrorist
I got a couple other texts about Thanksgiving, check it out:
I get baked Turkey Thursday then Friday I get smoked Turkey an Mac An cheese. Two thanksgiving feast for me. I lost 7lb last week, An looking to gain it back this weekend lol
Cold turkey sandwiches! I cannot wait until Friday. Thanks for being with me today boys I have to work also. Jamie the driver
Speaking of Thanksgiving…it’s the perfect time to share this… a great video that Vicky B made about how to cook a turkey!
Everything that is going on off the field with the Hawks is rather troubling… 2 guys are now suspended (Thurmond & Browner) for violating the league’s drug policy. Both are non-PED violations, and I have no idea what is true and what isn’t so I won’t try and speculate here…at the end of the day it’s a bummer to lose 2 guys that are game-changers when out there.
All of this insanity has been rather interesting to follow on Twitter, as we now have a direct line to the thoughts and opinions of team mates and other players. The most interesting exchange on Twitter happened with a guy that we have had on the show a couple times, Doug Baldwin Jr., and a random guy named Jeff. I posted the exchange below, as I think it’s a great discussion between the two...it’s nice to see Twitter being used for something other than straight up trolling:
So my beer league team was having some bad luck against one of the teams we play in the “R” – for those not in the know, that’s the RHL – the Rainier Hockey league. So as a show of solidarity we decided to grow mustaches…some already had facial hair, while others didn’t and had a week to grow it…but all tried. The effort worked as we won our game, and more importantly we have this creepy picture to stay with us for a lifetime. I think the red eye’s make it even more creepy!
If you want to see what I was rocking…this was the best I could pull off, as I had an important meeting last Wednesday so I had to shave on Tuesday night. It was still enough…my wife said I look creepy, I think it’s a good look. Sadly it’s already gone as I shaved it when I got home.
Christopher Walken was trying to hail a cab in New York City last Tuesday when some random fans stopped and offered him a ride. He took them up on it . . . and they posted their story on Reddit.com. One of the guys says, "We told him we are huge fans and offered him a lift. He responded politely 'I don't want you guys to go out of your way. I am going straight downtown and you can leave me anywhere. He got in the car and we went on talking about stories from growing up in the city. He is an incredibly nice person, the conversation was great and Mr. Walken thanked us again for the ride."
So Christopher Walken hitched a ride with some random fans in New York…based on this, when have you had an odd run-in with a celebrity? Here are the texts we got:
Russel wilson at a golf course
Ran into Daniel Bryan and Bri Bella in Airizoa before the Hawks-Cardinals game! So awesome
Met motley crue on an airplane
I played poker with ice t in Vegas
I met rick flair in 1984 at a wrestling event...I had to go take a leak, and noticed him standing in a entryway watching the match that was going on...I asked him if he was nervous about his upcoming match, and he said..I never get nervous kid.
In 1987, I had a paper route in Laurelhurst. Gary Larson, the writter of the "Far Side" comic, was a customer. Cool guy, great Christmas tipper.
I had the chance to meet lt. Dan (Gary sinise) when I was injured in Afghanistan and played him in ping pong
I bumped into Mark Calloway, aka The Undertaker from WWE, in Orlando, FL while working a grocery store. He was buying Doritos. Cool Ranch.
I ran into Steve Pool on Tom Sawyer island in Disneyland. I asked him "Hey, are you Steve Pool?" he said you must be from the Seattle area.
I played golf with Jerry Rice at Newcastle and beat him.... I won $5 from and had him sign the $5 bill
Luke Wilson Seahawks TE and Jerry Cantrell came in to where I work to get there trucks worked on. Both really cool guys.
I met Manny Pacquiao in the Philippines. Played a game of pool with him. Awesome guy.

He did a report for us…covering the big XBOX ONE event yesterday…and he did an awesome job! I’m not sure if he is ready to rock a yellow jacket for KING5 just yet, but here is The Max Long Report:
I would watch whatever channel he reported on...doesn't matter what the story is... Too funny
He sounds like Walter Jr from breaking bad. – kyle

I learned something new today…you can make a whole meal with a coffee pot!
Jennifer Lawrence was on "Letterman" last night, talking about a weird medical issue she's been having that led to her going to the Emergency Room!
What about you? What was the oddest reason you ended up in the E.R.? Here are the texts we got:
I shattered a beer glass in my hand at buffalo wild wings...shards of glass stuck in my hand everywhere but one split open the meaty part between my thumb and forefinger..also im a girl
I've got a plastic toy truck stuck in my nose at about the age of 5 years old
Does getting stabbed through my hand by my girlfriend count? Or another girlfriend that hit me with a pot of coffee 2nd degree burns.
I ate a 5lb bag of gummy bears in a couple days. It Plugged Me Up...I went to the hospital and they gave me suppositorys. It was weird lol
So during sex, about to hit the big 'O' my artificial hip dislocated. Sadly this happened not once but twice. Same guy...
I worked in an ER and saw crazy crap: Someone came in because they cut their throat to let the demons out. Drugs played a factor, shocking
Yesterday Lulu and I were watching my in-laws pup Trixie...so here is a cute puppy pic...I post this mainly for Thee Ted Smith’s enjoyment as he loves puppy pix!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a roadie for a rock band back in the 80’s – at the height of the craziness that followed those bands? One of my good buds Domi was a roadie for Van Halen on their 1984 tour...you can’t get much bigger than that tour, and Domi joined us for the STP-CAST...it’s a fun listen as he has stories about being on the road with Van Halen, as well as partying with The Beastie Boys before they broke big. In addition to all of that...we play audio of us all secretly farting in front of our significant others and playing their reactions! Listen here:
1. 27% of people said they wish they could have been there to see Neil Armstrong walk on the moon in 1969. Not actually ON the moon . . . the live broadcast.
2. 21% said the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990.
3. And 20% said Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech in 1963.
Based on this new poll that asked people what event they wish they could have witnessed…what about you? If you could have been there to see ANY major event, what would it be? Here are some of the texts we got:
Being able to watch Mount St. Helens erupt. See the tsunami that hit Asia. Natural disasters are fascinating to me. The death suck, but to witness would be epic
It's Laura from everett! And I wish I could have been at nirvana's unplugged show!
The miracle on ice
To see Osama Bin Laden killed
Pam and Tommy's sex tape.
USA vs. USSR portrayed in the movie miracle
I wish I could have seen STP's birth. --Alexander in Burien
The event I wish I would've seen in person was the destruction of the kingdome!
Any of the Mayor Of Torontos press conferences
The undertaker versus mankind Hell in a Cell 1998
I wish I was there to see Kirk Gibson hit that home run. and to see Mike Tyson win his first championship
I would have like to meet Bill Gates when he was looking for Microsoft investors
