Halloween 10/31/13
    Today is Halloween and I am sure you fired up, well maybe not since it is a weeknight but either way enjoy some candy. See there is not a ton of times you can just eat candy without feeling a little bad but it is Halloween so get some. I think the best trick is to buy more candy then is expected so you have leftovers. Now if your a parent I am sure you can just steal some from your kids. I think when I was a kid I tried to count all my candy before bed because I knew my Dad would be trying to steal snickers. It is also the time of year where people like to dress up and act a little more crazy. Lots of cleavage and short skirts today as well. I wonder what kind of candy will be giving out and what I will get if I was going trick or treating. I will be handing out Twix, snickers, and M&M's which I feel like are three of the classics. I hope you go out and have some fun and get a little candy tonight

Talking Trash 10/29/13
    I want to start this blog with the fact that I love some celebrations on a sports field. I for one thinks it sucks that a guy can score a touchdown and not allowed to celebrate with a group. I think in soccer you score a goal well have some fun and do a dance. I do think that at some point you can go a little too far and Golden Tate did that last night. I don't think Tate is bad dude at all and in fact I have met the guy and was cool to me. I think he just got fired up on making a great play then taunted the guy because he was jacked up. To me the simple reason it crossed the line is it just looked classless and that is what you don't want to look like in any sport. The other thing is it just looks like you are not used to scoring touchdowns or making great plays. Tate makes a ton of plays thus it looked bad and he said sorry so I am fine with it. I would also say if your a fan that likes that kind of taunting which I know a lot of your are since were pissed that I tweeted about Tate, then you have to deal with the cheap shots of other teams and don't bitch. See that is the issue with some fans is that they want to talk all the trash in the world but then bitch when someone does it to them. I never played in the NFL or even close to it but as a sports fan I can tell most of the top guys you see in the past with numbers AND rings don't do that stuff. Sounders FC playoff on Wednesday should be a good game as well. The Sounders need to turn it around quick though

Vegas 10/24/13
    So this weekend I am headed to Las Vegas for a bachelor party. Now the last time I went to Vegas I went with a buddy and we had a great time but we also it was just the two of us so it was a lot easier to plan things. This trip is a group of twelve and that is where things get interesting to me. You see when guys get together in large groups there is always a couple people who pass out early because they went to hard to start the day. Now the last bachelor party I was at I was the guy that passed out early myself. Now in my defense I had taken a red eye flight to get there and only had a couple hours sleep in thirty some hours but alas I was that guy. Now onto this trip I plan on not being that guy tomorrow Friday but Saturday night could be tough. The problem on Saturday is that we are going to the pool and watching college football which get me fired up very easily. I will just have to practice good manners and try to pace myself and drink water. Now I can talk about this all I want but once you get to that town all the bets are off, speaking of bets I hope to catch a hot hand in a dice game. I might even lay down a bet on the Seahawks to win a super bowl just because it would give me a reason to cheer for the Hawks. Oh the possibilities are endless this weekend in sin city.

Halloween stuff 10/22/13
    Good news everyone and that is I did not act like a bitch at the haunted woods. I was scared at certain points sure but I was tough in the face of fear. The walking though the woods and corn field had its scary moments but by far the mental ones are the worst. There was one where you walk into a room and there is no light at all, none and you have to feel your way around to get out. That one I will not lie got me going a bit but the chainsaw guys I expected so that was fun but not as scary as the black room. Another thing that was crazy was a room with a walk way that was not moving but the lights made it seem like the floor was moving and I almost fell over. Mental mind games are rough people be warned. Now after the haunt we walked through we then went over to the area where you get on a blacked out bus and shoot zombies with paint ball guns. Some of the zombies are just wood targets but a few of them are real people dressed up so they move. Moving targets and real people make the shooting of them that much better. Overall this was not something I would go out and do but if you have a group of friends I highly recommend to go to a haunted Forrest, woods or cornfield just get out there and enjoy the season.

Haunted Houses 10/17/13
    This weekend some friends and I are going to a haunted house and I won't lie I am scared. See here is the thing if you put me in a environment with normal people I am fine but all the Halloween stuff does scare me a bit. I am just not a huge fan of scary movies and creepy crawling things that are in haunted houses but alas there are going to be girls there so I better not act like a chump. I am excited about going and the night will be fun but I wont lie I am going to be a nervous wreck for some of the time I think. I am going to do the whole thing and do the house then if there is a hay ride well I am in for that as well. The farm we are going to also has zombies you can shoot with paint guns. I have never even shot a paint ball gun but I can't wait and want to shoot some zombies like a boss. The other thing I am excited about is just going with a fun group and having fun with them. Last time I went to a haunted farm like this I was in 8th grade and went with a buddy and his cute cousin. She was not scared but I was, a lot and it was pretty embarrassing so this time I need to fight back and be strong or at least just not scream like a bitch.

Sounders FC and Seahawks 10/15/13
    Well what a difference a few weeks makes in this town sports wise. The Seahawks have been doing what most thought they would do minus a small hiccup in Indianapolis and that is winning games. The Sounders FC on the other hand have been having a bit of trouble and  are not looking very good headed into the playoff run. I say playoff run and not the play-off's because the Sounders have had a chance in both of the last three matches to clinch a playoff spot and have failed to is bad fashion as well. I don't blame people at all for questioning the Sounders right now and asking tough questions about what is wrong with the club right now. The last couple of games have been tough to watch as well because those losses came at the hands of the Sounders two biggest rivals. Losing at home to Vancouver by 3 goals and then turn around and lose in Portland. Cascadia cup is now gone as well. It could have been the Sounders to hold again but no it was dropped from right out under our hands. It has been a tough month and like any good supporter I will stay true but it has been hard to not ask what is wrong these day?

The Shutdown and College football 10/8/13
    Today's blog is a little more serious than most of my blogs and yet it is not. You see the title is shutdown and college football which to most have nothing to do with each other. He is what college football and the government shutdown have in common is that they are both run by people completely out of touch with the average person. The shutdown is a giant game with our elected politicians over the affordable care act aka Obamacare. Now all the lawyers in congress oh I mean congressmen would say it is over things but truthfully it is not. As for the other side they are playing a dangerous game as well with our countries well being. Instead of getting anything done these people just want to shutdown the government which effects their pay checks none. See that is the thing is that now in the USA if you just get people fired up and can argue well then it is ok when it is not. At this point I don't care for either side and think it is just silly and someone of cores will say Ted you don't understand how complicated it all is. This makes me so mad because at the end of the day I understand hard headed people and a**holes which is what we are dealing with. This brings me to college football which is run by the same type of rich out of touch people. They claim college athletics is amateurism while turning it into a billion dollar business. Pay the players and stop cashing in on million dollar salaries. I am part of the problem as well since I still watch college football every Saturday. Sometimes I just feel like what can I do to change things and feel helpless but then again maybe that is their plan all along.

Honest athletes 10/2/13
    Last night I watched the end of a baseball playoff game, it was a one game playoff. Now after the game which the Red's lost to the Pirates one of the players was brutally honest and said that his team choked. Now some of the commentators think it was out of line to say his team choked as choke is on of those words people don't use in sports. I think it was fine to say his teamed choked and I for one loved the honesty. Look here is the deal the Red's went into Pittsburgh and laid a turd. Their pitcher was so rattled he dropped the ball at one point with no one around, yeah the team was not ready. The Red's had also just recently lost a series to the Pirates in which the Pirates just took the confidence out of the Cincinnati Red's and they choked. Now I do agree you should give credit to the other team as well but the guy just got done a game which he had no hits and did a interview and was honest. I think if people don't want to hear the truth then stop all the interviews right after the game. I would rather honest then the canned BS answers you get from most athletes
