The Wind in Seattle

I don't know what it's like inside Qwest Field, but I can tell you what it's like outside. It's windy. Like, gates are falling over, chains are crumpling and the top of my laptop figures to blow off pretty soon. If I was trying to throw a football, it might not be the world's most accurate toss. Maybe Todd Collins won't throw for 400 today.

I also don't know what the temperature is like inside Qwest Field, but I can tell you what it's like outside. It's freezing. And raining. And generally miserable. Like, maybe I should have brought a jacket. Luckily, vendors are selling hot sausages at 9 in the morning to warm everyone up. Also hot veggie sausage. I love Seattle.

I don't know what that fans will be like inside Qwest Field, but I can tell you what they're doing outside. They're screaming REDSKINS SUCK. Creative lot.

The big story in Seattle this week? Mike Sellers's comments, prompted by WTEM's Jerry Coleman, that he believes articificial noise is pumped into the stadium. They've played his clips on every radio station in town, slapped his comments in every newspaper. Here's columnist Steve Kelley's prediction in this morning's Seattle Times.

"Mike Sellers leaves the game with an acute case of tinnitus, says he is certain he saw Motley Crue screaming inot the PA system."

And here's a subhed on today's Times story about Sellers: "Washington's Mike Sellers might have made a big mistake when he questioned the clamor at Qwest."
