Hell reports freezing overnight temperatures.

Victory.jpg.jpgI know I'm supposed to be here working on the rewrite, but first things first. THE SEAHAWKS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL, BABY!

It was a sight to behold. From the painted faces and shaved heads, to the guy in the gorilla suit and the dead-on Jimmy Hendrix impersonator. Even the panhandlers and crackheads in Pioneer Square were decked out in Seahawk regalia.

We watched the game from across the street at a jam-packed FX McRory's, then snuck into Qwest Field just in time to see the fireworks go off and the shimmering confetti rain down as the awards presentation unfolded. We even went down to the field to mug the cameras with the rest of the yahoos behind the Fox Sports desk with Terry Bradshaw, Jimmy Johnson and crew. (Wow, these guys wear more make-up for the cameras than Tammy Faye).

Afterwards I did a fan interview on KPLU Radio then we hit Chinatown for some late-night dum sum. I ended the night with a fistful of Cohibas. Too bad I don't smoke. Anyone want a nice Cuban stogie?

As we were looking for tickets before the game. there was a guy holding up a sign that read "My soul for a ticket". I think he got his money's worth.

YOu know what's funny about the Super Bowl this year? I watch too much TV and the other night it was Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show sucking my precious time away. He has a method of predicting winners based on the team helmet logo. And yes, based on that--or so he said--he predicted the Seahawks and the Steelers. It makes the work of bookies seem a bit like all the work some of us go through to get published: it can all boil down to luck in the end.
