STP's BLOG 01/31/14 "Blue Friday!"
Happy “Blue Friday” everyone…easily the biggest “Blue Friday” ever!  For me it’s been “Blue Everyday”, as I have been rocking Seahawks based clothes every day for the past couple of weeks…here is just a sample…

Well, it’s official…I know who is winning the Super Bowl.  There is no need to wait until Sunday to find out…because Eli the Ape has been picking Super Bowl winners for the last 6 years, and has been RIGHT every year.  Who did Eli pick?  The Seahawks?  The Broncos?  Check it out:

That’s right Hawks fans…Eli says the Hawks are winning, we now have nothing to fear…GO HAWKS!

I took this off my bud Todd’s Facebook wall…it’s an awesome time lapse video of the Hawks travelling from the VMAC to the airport, and you can see all the fans that showed up.  I got serious goose bumps at the end when you see how man people were there…enjoy…

STP's BLOG 01/30/14 "Go Hawks Boeing!"
Our good bud Craig Gass was at the Super Bowl Media day…what happens when you take a fellow Hawks super fan and give him access to players?  This…

Did you see what Boeing did in the spirit of the Hawks?  It’s AWESOME!  Check out this 747-8 Freighter…thanks to my brother Ryno for sending these pix to me:

Ok…when is the NFL going to loosen up their rule that players MUST do interviews with the media and will be fined if they don’t  I understand that they want players to be available to media, but I am guessing there are enough guys that are willing to and comfortable with speaking to the media.  Marshawn Lynch is not one of them.  Every time he is interviewed he looks painfully uncomfortable.  What good is it having him do these?  It makes him look bad, and in turn the NFL looks bad.  I watched yesterday’s interview that Marshawn did with the media, and I absolutely hated the media.  If the NFL won’t shut the interviews down, maybe the media should (I know this will sound shocking) act responsible and just leave Beast Mode alone.  Watch this interview…yes, Michael Robinson saves it with some great humor, but Marshawn has been asked these questions before…in fact he answered most of them with Deion Sanders the day before…and he’s being asked them again.  Why?  For the hope he snaps?  Or because media has such a stick up their collective you-know-what and are “punishing” Marshawn for not wanting to speak with the holy media?

Media – knock it off already…BOSS!

STP's BLOG 01/29/14 "Beast Mode Loves You"
Yesterday was Media Day for the Super Bowl, and after seeing the circus that Media Day is, I don’t blame Marshawn Lynch for doing a quick press conference.  You have people dressed as super heroes, people in 1700’s outfits, etc…all asking players stupid questions.  don't they know that’s my job to ask dumb question when players call in to our show?  I mean there were questions about Russell Wilson’s hair, someone asked Percy Harvin if he likes playing football, and someone asked Michael Bennett who on the team has the stinkiest farts.   The ultimate dumb question moment happened with Richard Sherman…and props to Richard, he took a ridiculous question/statement and gave a great answer:

It would have been hilarious if Richard then finished the answer by invited her to go to Scores with him.  Waka Waka!
Marshawn did spend some time with Deion Sanders, and the interview was awesome.  A. Marshawn has a great chill sense of humor, and 2. You can tell he is all about the team.  Props to Deion for going with the flow, he did a great job with this interview…

On this week’s STP-CAST, we  spoke with David Barrionuevo.  David is making headlines because he has been to EVERY Hawks game this year…and he doesn’t even live in Seattle.  David is a Seahawks fan from New York, and flies to every game.  There was a great article on him in the Daily News in New York:

David has a blog that chronicles his experience:  SEAFENSE.BLOGSPOT.COM
Check out the entire interview on the STP-CAST – available on iTunes, Stitcher, or here:
Based on David’s story…it doesn’t have to be sports related, have you ever wanted to spend a year travelling and doing something like David did?  What is it?  Or…have you done something like it? What did you do?  Here are some of the texts we got:
My grandfather wants to see a baseball game in every state. As far as I know, he's only done Georgia, Washington, and Kentucky. However the Kentucky game he saw was minor league.

I would like to get a divorce, travel around the country and sleep with a woman from every state.

I am a race fan, always wanted to go to every Nascar race for a season, GO TONY STEWART, John

I hated my job so I took a year off and fished almost everyday. Traveled all over chasing steelhead. 6 months in I designed a fishing lure and by the end of that year I was the owner if a tackle business and I haven't looked back. That was 2002.

Hi I'm branden shires I live in federal way wash. Im 17 and my dream is to follow the mariners to every baseball game they play

44 year old father of 2 A local soft ware enginer of eighteen years qqite his job and took a year off to go to every game this year

I've seen Dave Matthews Band 67 times the past 4 years in 13 different states

STP's BLOG 01/28/14 "Willlllson!"
BJ started the show off complimenting me on my shirt. For the last 2 weeks I have worn nothing but Seahawks themed shirts and jerseys…I got a new Russell Wilson Phish inspired shirt in the mail yesterday…
 photo stpphish_zps36f1a859.jpg
Why is his name made to look like the Phish logo?  Well, when he first takes the field, the Hawks play the opening riff of the Phish song, “Wilson”, and the fans sing Russell’s last name.  There was a great piece done by the NFL on it, you can check it out here:
Thanks to Nic for sending us this great video…it’s a musical remix of Richard Sherman interviews…

STP's BLOG 01/27/14 "Is It Sunday Yet?"
FOX Sports put together a funny video where kids did a reenactment of Richard Sherman's postgame interview with Erin Andrews …check it out:

This is pretty cool…thousands of people lined the streets towards SeaTac to wave good bye and cheer on the Hawks as they head to NY for Super Bowl week.  I guess not as many people did the same in Denver…I got a kick out of this pic that my bud John sent me…check it out:
 photo HAWKSMEME_zps6aa90318.jpg

This Sunday is the big game...I can't wait!  Are you still trying to figure out where to go?  Well, wouldn't it be awesome to watch the game with a guy that went to the big game the last time the Hawks were in it?  Marcus Trufant is hosting a big party on Sunday with his brother Desmond...  if you are interested in going, click on this link for details!

Last night was the Grammy’s, the highlight of what I saw so far…as I didn’t see the entire broadcast as I went to bed at 10…was Imagine Dragons.  Man, these guys kill it every time I have seen them perform on an award show…and last night was insane!  They performed with new rapper Kendrick Lamar, and they mashed their hits together into something incredible…check it out:

Props to hometown heroes Macklemore & Ryan Lewis…they won 4 Grammys, and had a very memorable performance!

STP's BLOG 01/24/14 "Farting Deer"
So…yet another reason why my wife rules.  At 5:45 AM I get a text from her…usually it’s a text that says “Good Morning” or something along thoise lines…but this morning it was just a link…no text…so I click on it, and it’s this:

HAHAHA!  When that deer’s tail flies up I nearly spat my coffee out!
Huge thanks to Craig Terrill for joining us to talk Hawks.  If you don’t remember, Craig was on the Hawks the last time the team went to the Super Bowl…Super Bowl 40 in Detroit.  If you don’t remember, the Rolling Stones played at Half Time…which led to this great song that Craig wrote and performed for us at a listener party!

I love the Seahawks vibe that has taken over the North West…this story rocks, and I am glad to hear it comes out of my hood … Puyallup!  How would you like to try a Beast Mode Hot Skittles Sausage?  Yes, you read that right…it’s a Spicy pork sausage infused with Marshawn’s favorite candy…Skittles!  Where can you get it?  At Blue Max Meats in Puyallup!  We talked about this during my news, and I love when stuff like this happens…as it proves that we have at least one listener!  One of the owners, Tommy, texted us this:

Thank you guys so much for the shout out about our meat shop. We  are huge fans of your show, and we listen faithfully every morning…love love love your show and being mentioned on the air with the BJ Shea show is bigger for us than anything! Go Hawks, Go Hawks, and Go Rock! Tommy Blue Max Meats
He also mentioned that he wants to give me a big meat package for all the guys on the show…wait…what?  Taken out of context…  Haha!

We got this email about the Hawks…

Guys...I loved what you had to say about Derrick Coleman, and props to you BJ for sharing your hearing aid story.
I 100% agree with Steve about how there are so many charismatic characters on the team.  my favorite has always been Michael Robinson because of The Real Rob Report, but I am now even a bigger fan after seeing that video of him on the sidelines after their win last weekend, and he had tears streaming down his face.  That is passion right there.  I love the Hawks! 
I wanted to know who do you LOVE on the team and why?

Here is a picture of Michael Robinson that he is referring to….

Based on Jerry's email...what about you?  Who on the Hawks do you LOVE and why?  Here are the texts we got:

Zach miller, zach miller, zach miller baby whoooo # 86 all the way catches anything Wilson throws at him.

Tarvaris Jackson. Many forget the fantastic work he put in to keep the Seahawks franchise rebuilding alive. He started at QB while injured an entire season and made the playoffs to set in motion the progressive improvements we've seen getting us to the Super Bowl. He's not starting now, but he's back as part of this championship team and often overlooked. Give him credit where it's due! -Luke, Port Townsend

Or Brandon Mebane. That belly roll is hypnotic. Oh myyy.

Russell Wilson. Love his work with children's hospital. Even tho we have never met him we have spent time at children's with our son due to his autism and his physical disabilities with his foot. He is having surgery again on the 29th. We know how much it means to those kids to meet a great role model. Go Hawks! Jim in Lynnwood

My favorite player is houska(our kicker. It's to early for spelling) why? Because when you think about it, when was his last missed kick? How many games were we ahead by a field goal or two.

Earl Thomas, because he's posed ,confident, and mean on the field Will

I'm going to show some love for Doug Baldwin. Analysts counted him out as not a threat and he played the game of his life on Sunday.

Best. Topic. Ever. I gotta go with Breno Giacomini. Every team should have a guy with a thick Brooklyn like accent. -the Drunk Viking

Coleman. He has a lot of character and perseverance to overcome deafness

love Sherman and Russell. Sherman is just a boss, and Russ is the most gracious player to ever step foot on the field. Asking Bradshaw how to approach the SB was amazing. He's just an all around amazing man, even at such a young age. -Scott, Sammamish

Can these Hawks get any better! These guys are class acts and ready to be superbowl champs!

I love Pete Carrol. He has so much energy, and I believe he brings out the best in all his players. GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!! BIGJON

STP's BLOG 01/23/14 "Derrick Coleman"
When everyone is talking about Richard Sherman and nationally he is turned into a villain, which is ridiculous to me….there is one Hawk who I think should be the guy that everyone is talking about.  Who?  Marshawn?  Nope.  Russell?  Nope.  Pete Carroll?  Nope. 

Derrick Coleman.
Who is Derrick Coleman?  Instead of me describing our fullback…I’ll let a commercial, yes a commercial, give you an idea of who he is.  Good luck not having goose bumps when watching this!

Well once this inspiring video came out, it touched a lot of people…including a young girl in NY who wrote Derrick this letter, which had been Tweeted and shared all over the world…
 photo COLEMANLETTER_zpsd455f532.jpg
I love this…Derrick saw the letter, and wrote her back!  Something about the fact that it’s a hand written letter to the girl makes it even cooler.  Derrick, you sir, are the man!
 photo colemanletterfromhim_zps8b8a3347.jpg

I absolutely love this video…yet another reason to love Russell Wilson.  I love his attitude…always wanting to learn…even when most are enjoying a moment to celebrate.  Right after the Hawks won the NFC Championship, they have a big trophy presentation ceremony in front of all of us & Terry Bradshaw is on stage with them to present the trophy and do interviews.  At one point during the celebration, Russell hit’s up Terry for advice on winning the big game.  It’s a really cool, sincer, moment!

STP's BLOG 01/22/14 "Bronco Busters"
Yesterday I talked about how a local T-Shirt company (that makes awesome sports inspired shirts) has brought back the “Bronco Busters” shirt. 
 photo BroncoBusters_large_zpsa45778b4.jpg
After I mentioned it I got a ton of emails and texts asking where they could get the shirt…here is a link to the site:
I bought one yesterday, I can’t wait to wear it to work a bud that works here is from Denver and is a huge Broncos fan…I plan on wearing it next week when we have a meeting that we are both in!

Since I’m on a Hawks kick (when am I not haha)…we played this song on the STP-CAST yesterday (available on iTUNES & Stitcher), if this doesn’t get you pumped up…you must be nuts!  I hear this song and it makes me want to jump on the field…what would I do when on the field?  Nothing, I’d probably hide behind James Carpernter or Max Unger…but still…I would be on the field ready for battle!  Ok…ready to watch battle!  Regardless…watch this video and listen to the song, even if you aren’t a hip hop fan…I think every Hawks fan will love this!

Last night I went to the T-Birds game with my bros Monson & Jay…it was 2 for Tuesday.  Never before has there been a better deal than this promotion… 2 for 1 tickets, 2 dollar beers, 2 dollar hot dogs, etc…to put it in perspective…this cost us 12 dollars:
 photo B46EF509-D075-4FDC-BDC9-470E57793B34_zpsj4az74ug.jpg
It was a great game as well…the T-Birds are playing some real good hockey these days, they won 3-2 in a shoot-out.  Seattle’s record is now 29-14-2-3 and just four points out of first in the U.S. Division!

STP's BLOG 01/21/14 "Super Bowl Bound!"
I don’t even know where to start.  All I can say is Go Hawks!  I was lucky enough to be at the game, and without a doubt this was the greatest sporting experience of my life!  This pic sums it up…taken right after the final knee was taken by Russell!
 photo 7D3A1F2D-B860-4F68-BEED-996A47D95639_zpsaomod5sq.jpg
I have to say…this was an emotional game, not only for the players…but for us fans.  When Sherman tipped that pass and Smith caught it for the interception…tears started streaming down my face.  Yes, I cried.  I thought I would have looked silly, but then I look around me and everyone was tearing up too.   Based on some of the texts we got, I wasn’t the only Rock-A-Holic feeling it!
I was at home watching the game and started to cry in front of the wife
Same here Steve in section 239. Tears rolling with joy.
Section 229 was erupting when we saw the blocked pass and intercepted. Brian

We grabbed a video of the crowds reaction when Russell took that final knee…check it out…it was pure insanity at C-Link!

Here are a couple pix I took…I love that lit up 12 on the building next to Century Link!
 photo E70F0C80-1F71-41B5-88CE-5CF61742AEDE_zps8umuo9xq.jpg
For those wondering…yes, I had the Beast Burger, and yes…it was amazing! 
 photo 180F1C6E-0174-4D34-98BD-75E8E2826BC1_zps1gbjgkq2.jpg
As you can see…they hook you up with a side of Skittles…speaking of Skittles, I love this moment with Golden Tate during the game:

Our bud Craig Gass was there too…and he texted me this pic…how cool is this?  Confetti angels!
 photo 52477948-61E2-4D5A-890E-3CF0AC2C165B_zpslm3dsd4b.jpg
I mentioned earlier that the players were emotional…and the sports world was on fire about Richard Sherman’s emotional post-game interview…

I know there are many that are mad about this…which I think is ridiculous.  Most of the people complaining about this are the same people that complain about athletes are boring in interviews with cliché answers.  Richard makes things interesting! He’s like the ultimate WWE wrestler – great promo skills.  I could go on and on about how awesome he is both on and off the field, but at the end of the day he was hit up for an interview right after making the play that put his team into the Super Bowl…his adrenaline was at it’s highest, I’m not surprised that he was that emotional.  I love the pure emotion of #25!  
Speaking of the WWE…I love this mash up of Mean Gene and Richard Sherman…

Did you catch the Richard Sherman commercial for “Beats”?

STP's BLOG 01/16/14 "There Is One Good Harbaugh"
Huge thanks to Seahawk great Marcus Trufant for joining us! 

 photo trufant_zps8c139d74.jpg

Marcus is throwing a tailgating party with his new auto detailing company, The Tru Experience, this Sunday at 1720 4th Ave South Seattle (right by Mr. Electric).  Check out The Tru Experience here:

While Marcus was in studio...we had him listen to the Hawks song that Nick wrote to the tune of "Royals" by is his reaction!

I got this text this morning…
Steve! You gotta You tube the video of Jim Ross calling the Kam Chancellor hit on Vernon Davis! So epic. Taylor from Puyallup! GO HAWKS!

Yesterday we talked about a story that led to many people requesting I post it on my blog because of how awesome it is. 

An elementary school teacher in Boston recently asked her students to list the steps you'd need to take to fall in love with someone.  And a list that two girls came up with is pretty much spot on.  Or not.  Here are the 11 steps they outlined, in order.

1.  First you stare at the person.
2.  You get close to each other.
3.  You ask for a date.
4.  You go in bed and do sex.
5.  When you kiss, you suck and lick.
6.  Get naked in bed, and do more sex.
7.  Go dance, and put your noses together.
8.  You go in bed forever, then kiss forever.
9.  Take a shower together and kiss.
10.  Give each other rings.
11.  Go to the pool together.
We are just a few days away from the big Hawks game…many of us fans love to goof on the 49’ers coach Jim Harbaugh, but there is one Harbaugh I think we can embrace…his wife!  Why you ask?  Well there is a radio show in San Fran called “Fernando & Greg”, and the fellas were goofing on Jim’s fashion sense…mainly those khaki’s that he wears all the time.  During their chat, Jim’s wife Sarah called in to make it clear that she does not approve of what her husband wears…this is too funny, check it out:

STP's BLOG 01/15/14 "12th Man Flag"
Big news!  I’m very excited to say that one of the greatest Hawks of all time… Marcus Trufant will join us in studio tomorrow morning.  Marcus is throwing a tailgating party with his new auto detailing company, The Tru Experience, this Sunday at 1720 4th Ave South Seattle (right by Mr. Electric).  Check out The Tru Experience here:

This got us talking about this Sunday.  I propose to the Seahawks (as I know they read my blog daily) that this Sunday they bring back as many of the 2005 team to raise the 12th man Flag.  Just think about it for a second…  I am thinking about it and there are goose bumps popping!  Imagine Matt Hasselbeck, Marcus Trufant, Shaun Alexander, Mack Strong, Walter Jones,  Robbie Tobek, Steve Hutchinson, Lofa Tatupu, Craig Terrill, Grant Wistrom,  Josh brown…whoever they can get there…put em all up in the stands!  Hell…I also propose that they have a zip-line set up from the 12th Man Flag pole to the field…have Josh Brown zip down there…and have him do the kick off for the game!  I’m sure the NFL would allow that! 

Toppy agreed with me that the 2005 team should raise the flag…BJ thought that it would even be cool to have new Mariner Robin son Cano raise the flag, and then the texts started coming in:
Gary Peyton, Shawn Kemp, Walter Jones, Griffey

Steve largent

smart money is on holmgren to raise the flag Sunday

A Rod raising flag....he would get a warm welcome.....

Also we should have Brian Bosworth raise the 12th man flag

Matt hasselbeck


Dave Kreig

Cortez Kennedy

Pearl Jam

Speaking of the Hawks, have you seen this commercial that Duracell made?  It’s easily the BEST commercial I have ever seen… damn they need to make a documentary about Derrick Coleman of the Hawks!

Huge props to Hot Kyle…he and Max Long (star of The Max Long report) did a real awesome thing yesterday and visited a super cool Rock-A-Holic named Jo Beth! After five years of dialysis, Jo Beth received a second chance at life with a kidney transplant.

The fellas went to Swedish Medical Center to visit her and are happy to report that her recovery is going great!

You Rock Jo Beth!
Yesterday, BJ and I were making a quest for an Oscar, as we were both cast in a short film that is being made by Keith Rivers, yes…Bob’s son!  We got to act alongside Billy Miller, who if you watch soap operas you have seen on the Young and the Restless…the dude has won a couple daytime Emmy’s.  Billy was beyond cool…and it was a blast hanging with him…check us all out:

STP's BLOG 01/13/14 "Hawks Win!"
On Saturday I was one of the lucky 68,000 plus that were at Century Link Field for the Hawks vs. Saints game!  What an awesome experience…that was easily the loudest game I have been to…and I have been to a ton of Hawks games…including both games in the playoffs back in the 2005 season.  Even though the wind was nasty and the rain was dumping on everyone, it didn’t matter!  The 12th Man was in full force!

 photo hawks3_zpsac484b17.jpg
Thankfully I was covered for the game…I was in section 312, and all of us that were sitting around eachother were having an incredible time…cheering and high fiving together!  I grabbed these 2 panoramic shots…one taken about a half hour before the game’s start…
 photo hawks2_zpsb33218d7.jpg
And this one was taken towards the end of the game!
 photo hawks5_zps646eb384.jpg
I even ran into a fellow Rock-A-Holic sitting in the same section while at the game…here I am with Jeremy!
 photo hawks1_zpsc4e96512.jpg
I can’t wait for Sunday as we take on our rivals, the San Francisco 49’ers…this is the matchup that everyone was wanting…the 2 best teams from the NFC “duke-ing” it out, and the winner goes to the Super Bowl!  There will be plenty of chatter about this all week, and right now, all I have to say is…Go Hawks!
 photo hawks4_zpscd4bd4df.jpg

While talking about the game, we got this text at 7-7-9-9-9:
BJ…being there at the game when Lynch got that TD was the greatest moment in my sports watching life.  To be able to celebrate with the rest of the 12’s out there is something I can’t put into words!
This led to us asking the Rock-A-Holics to finish this sentence: “So far…the highlight of the Hawks Season for me was _____.” Or…what is your all-time favorite Hawks memory?  Here are some of the texts we got:
 My hawks memory was when lynch fumbled in the air and Coleman caught the ball scoring a touchdown and won against the rams at rams stadium
My highlight from the Hawks season was when Ricardo Lockette slammed a Rams player who was receiving a punt! It was a perfect hit and flawless beyond compare!!
When they were still in the kingdome I remember the Seahawks have to re kick the second half kickoff because the rest said they were still at commercial
The day I found out Hasselbeck was leaving
Greatest hawks moment was when Steve Atwater gave largent a concussion 6 weeks later largent gave Atwater a concussion for a fumble recovery
The first meet up between san francisco and seattle this season when we held in the 3 points being at that game was the best, from Steve in Yelm
Highlight of hawks season: the pregame huddle in the tunnel before Giants game. The players stating, "we will be back here in February!" The Seahawks shut out the Giants, amazing win!!!
When romo screwed up that fieldgoal at the link and ended up crying afterwards. Classic.
Sadly I didn't get to watch the game because I got called into work, but when that particular TD you were just discussing was made, I can tell you that ) the meat department at Safeway got very loud
Oh and my favorite hawks memory was when I went to a preseason thing that they were hosting and Kam Chancellor photo bombed a picture of me and my family
I am lucky enough to play with Blue Thunder and playing for the fans during the playoffs is amazing! Every time! Dread Pirate.
My favorite seahawk moment was when Richard Sherman intercepted mat Schabs pass from the texans to go to overtime and win! That's when I knew this team had it!
I've been a fan for 25+ years and there's many moments but I'd say when Largent broke the record for TD's with 100...still my all time favorite Hawk! :) Or watching Tez eat QB's. Beast quake 2 was pretty awesome too, almost as good as Beast quake 1. From pjmatt in Anacortes.

STP's BLOG 01/10/13 "Durant's Hacked Phone"
You got to love the old “my phone was hacked” excuse whenever someone posts something messed up on Twitter.  However, this one seems a little more believable…hell for all I know it’s another lie, but for some reason Kevin Durant has never come off as a fool, which makes what happened on his Twitter page a little nutty!  Yesterday he posted a picture of him blowing smoke…it looked like he was paying homage to his former hometown of Seattle and partaking in some 420 action…
 photo durant2_zps94eec031.jpg
He then went on Twitter and A. Said his phone was hacked, and 2. That wasn’t pot smoke…it was from a Hookah!  Read his tweets though…if he is being honest, how the hell does something like that happen? 
 photo durant1_zps7312228b.png
That’s pretty messed up…I’ve never heard of such a thing. know…as I write this, I change my mind…I think he’s full of crap.  I’m doubted the “hacked” story…he must have learned how to make up a good story from the owner of the Thunder Clay Bennett.  “I swear my phone is hacked” = “I swear I’m keeping the Sonics in Seattle”.

Today's Video Blog is a review of the brand new XBOX ONE.  Thanks to Microsoft for sending us the XBOX ONE to check out, so we had our resident gamer, the Rev, give it a test looks awesome!

STP's BLOG 01/09/14 "Hawks & 90's"
Today it was all about the Hawks and the 90’s! 

Huge thanks to Luke Willson from the Hawks for joining us this morning – it was cool hearing him talk about how aware he is of the 12th Man love…plus I told him how I had to pay double on eBAY to get this beanie that is sold out everywhere….

The best part is that his family is coming to Seattle for the game, and they asked him for that beanie and he can’t find it either!!  Man I am so pumped for this Saturday.  Big thanks to the Gas Man for hanging with us, Mike Gastineau was on to chat Hawks…and he nailed it when he said that it feels like the days leading up to Christmas!
Today is 90’s Something Day on The Rock.  We are celebrating the music of the 90’s, and when I think of the 90’s…the first thing I think of was when Pearl Jam performed on MTV’s Unplugged.  I was already a huge fan of the band, but this performance…especially when they played “Porch”…cemented my fandom for the band!  If you haven’t seen this performance, you need to watch this…here is their whole set:

This led to a great topic, we asked the Rock-A-Holics to finish this sentence… “When I think of the 90’s I think of _____”.  Here are some of the texts we got:

Smoking in McDonalds

When I think of the 90s I think of heavily distorted video on The Playboy Channel.

Partying, loud BASS18"woofers :)

When I think of the 90s.. I think of Michael Jordan taking over the NBA and no one could stop him... 6 titles in the 90s.. -Lorenzo in tukwila!!!!!!!

Grunge clothes flannel shirts holy jeans and bed head lol

90s = the discman (portable cd player)

I think of Nickelodeons game shows double date figure it out and legends of the hidden temple and scooters

When I think of the 90s I think of gas being below $2 per gallon. Kevin in Renton

Chuck from bothell One thing the 90s reminds me of is the kingdome.

Seeing Mother Love Bone in a club in Tacoma , seeing PJ at the Moore the night the filmed Even Flow, Soundgarden in the Paramount, Pumkins at DV8..... The Vouge, The OK Hotel. Love this towns music! Craig in Puyallup

Two words. "Mortal Kombat".

STP's BLOG 01/08/14 "Andrew Wood"
Today is Andrew Wood’s birthday.  He would have been 48, sadly he died at the age of 24.  Way too soon, and sadly we don’t have more music from him or Mother Love Bone.  Andy had an amazing voice, and even though I wasn’t lucky enough to ever see him live, from the many bootleg videos I have seen and from hearing stories from friends that have seen em’…he was an incredible front man.  I figured I would dedicate today’s blog to him and his music…so I grabbed some of their videos!

Here is the music video for their song “Holy Roller”…

Here is “Stardog Champion”…

Here is another great video for their song, “Bone China”:

This isn’t a official music video by the band, but the guy that made this did a great job, so props to BentleyABC on YouTube for making a video of one of my all time favorite songs by MLB!

Just last month Pearl Jam (Stone and Jeff from PJ were in MLB in case you didn’t know) played at the Key Arena, and all of us in attendance were having a goose bump moment when they covered Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns…

STP's BLOG 01/07/14 "WILSON!"
Man…I cannot wait for Saturday for the Hawks playoff game…yesterday I was on You Tube, and came across this awesome video about the evolution of the “WILSON” chant you hear at Seahawks games.  Oddly enough, we can thank the band Phish for this.  Yup, the fellas from Vermont gave us the chant.  How so?  Watch this video…it’s a great piece done about their song “Wilson” and the connection to Russell Wilson and the Seahawks

Last night was the Old School edition of WWE’s Monday Night Raw, and I always love watching this episode as it’s great seeing some of the guys from back in the day…guys like Roddy Piper, Ric Flair, Diamond Dallas Page, etc…but last night…all of us old school wrasslin’ fans were beyond stoked with this surprise appearance…

For those that have followed Jake’s career…he’s been through some crappy times, but thanks to DDP he has turned his life around, so it was beyond cool to see him looking healthy and back in the ring.  Now the WWE has to put him in the Royal Rumble…that would be the ultimate moment! 
Jake surely looks a lot better than the time he came to our studio a few years back…this is one of my favorite pictures I have ever had taken with a celebrity…

STP's BLOG 01/06/14 "I Got The Beanie - Go Hawks!"
I’m sure everyone was dying to know this after our chat on air last Friday…
“Did Steve get his Seahawks beanie?”
The answer…Hell yes I did…and even though I paid double for it…the moment I put this glorious hat on my head I knew it was worth every penny!

Over the weekend we watched my in-laws pup Trixie…if you were ever wondering what that is like when you get Lulu and Trix together?  This is what happens:

STP's BLOG 01/03/14 "Passing Out"
As a guy that is known for passing out a lot…I LOVE seeing that I’m not the only one.  This video is EPIC! Brooke Graham is a reporter in Salt Lake City from KUTV (CBS affiliate), and she  is the latest viral video sensation as she passed out during an interview.   The best part is that after she passed out, she came through and finished the interview! Give this gal an Emmy for this!

I feel for as there was once a time that I was live on the air and I passed out as well…if you have never seen this video, it’s a must watch!

Everyone is going nuts about the Seahawks…from Playoff tix selling out in a minute, to tons of people getting in line to get one of those personalized Seahawks license plate (I need to do that as well)…but oddly enough…one of the things that many people are going nuts about is this:

Why are people going nuts about this beanie?  Well, it’s the one that the players wear, and they are sold out everywhere!  I mean everywhere…trust me, I tried…that is, unless you are willing to spend double or triple the price on one.  Which even though I said I wouldn’t do, I did.  Once I got my Hawks playoff tickets, it was eating at me that I didn’t have the hat…I became obsessed with wanting the hat, so I caved in and spent about $50 for a $22 hat! 

Iam sure I’m not the only one that has spent way too much on something…just because I wanted it.  The texts started pouring in:
I spent 350 for a pro issue a2000 baseball glove to use to play softball . The glove is a super rare model called the 1781 .

$300 bucks to ACDC at the Tacoma dome! 6 rows from the stage! Well worth it!
I spent over $800 on my first PS3 and it was used. Jokes on me though it broke a few years ago and I'm on my 3rd one now

Every Seahawks game I go to I pay at least 3 times the face value! But it's always worth it! Go Hawks!

In Afghanistan you are not allowed to consume alcohol Well we pulled security on a german passenger plane I paid the flight attendant $45. For a bottle of beer

I just spent $17 for the final season of Breaking Bad on DVD, and it will be on Netflix for free in a few months.

One time I spend $1,000 to see an escort for 1 hour. Very expensive but I couldn't resist. She was beyond gorgeous

I love this video…If you were like me, and watching the NHL Winter Classic on New Year’s day, there was a moment that made me laugh out loud. They went to the much loved (and by loved I mean despised by hockey fans) Pierre McGuire down by the ice to talk about how cold it was…so cold that the ref’s whistle FROZE! And then this gem happened…
