Sports Hello? Anyone home?

Man, I go to check the Slog and no one is there. Not much to say, really, other than how your NFC champ Seagulls are looking a bit green about the gills, what with almost losing to St. Louis. Didn’t watch the game—working today to make up for missing tomorrow night with the Bears on MNF—but thought I’d see what someone in Seattle had to say. Guess everyone is getting re-vetted or something. Then I note folks are commenting on my Onion-linked post yesterday since they’re so lonely and there’s nowhere else to go.
So, some gasoline on the fire: the Seahawks and Bears will meet again in January, though not in the NFC Championship game—you guys’ll be outdone in the regular season by the Eagles or the Saints, no bye round. In a Wild-Card round game against the Giants, you will win but Shaun Alexander will break his pinky and be unavailable the next week and we’ll crush you like bugs before marching on to Miami and Super Bowl 41. Screw the roman numberals.
Meanwhile, various events revolving around music, politics, the Alaskan Way, coffee, anti-gay ministers and conflicts of interest will transpire in Seattle and be slogged mightily.
