Yes, Seattle, I will be live-slogging the Seagulls game tomorrow.
Check back here for constantly updated analysis of the big game starting at 3 PM. I will be cracking open a lucky bottle of Lillet—I was drinking le Aperitif de Bordeaux when our beloved Gulls triumphed over the Painters in what was, as it turned out, the Gulls penultimate football contest, and not the championship game, as I had mistakenly assumed.
Still, no other football commentator in the Northwest possesses more insight about the history, strategy, and complexities of the game than yours truly. Join me,, why don’t you, for what will surely be a memorable day of footballing.
UPDATE: Last minute shopping to do before the game? Need snacks and beer?
Today rioters set fire to the Danish embassy in Syria—and the Norwegian embassy too. Nice—you print a comic, we burn down buildings. At rallies in Islamic states, speakers are insisting that the protests will go on until every last one of the cartoonists, all of whom are now in hiding, is beheaded.
Give a shit about freedom of expression? Don’t want what you think, write, draw, and publish to be vetted by a bunch of religious fascists who long to live in the 14th Century? Like your women unenslaved, your speech free, your homos alive, your booze legal, your beard shaved, and your cartoonists headed?
I’m going to run out today—“Windstorm ‘06” be damned!—and buy a few cases of Carlsberg Beer for my Super Bowl party. You should too. I’m also going to get my kid some brand new Legos to put together, in case he gets bored watching the game. There’s always a nice selection of Danish cheeses at the QFC on Broadway, and I’m going to swing by and buy some. Mmm… cheese. Whatever you’re going to buy today, why not do the right thing?
UPDATE 2: Okay, we ran out and bought Danish. So we’re all set for the Super Bowl tomorrow—we’ve got tons of Danish beer, Danish cheese, and Danish crackers. We even drove around until we found a tin of those Danish butter cookies.
Going shopping for your own Super Bowl party? Support free speech! Piss off the theocrats! BUY DANISH!
