A Weekend For The
This is Officer Lee
Groinman, That’s Right, Washington’s Most Pleased Cop…
The perfect end to the perfect weekend…
Jeff Lindquist, the gun-slinger
quarterback from Mercer Island commits to the Dawgs on Friday, Usama Bin
Laden dead on Sunday, with a Spring Game thrown in there in the middle,
just for good measure.
Gotta tell ya’ folks, it just don’t get
much better than that…
Yup, May First, 2011 gonna be one
of those days that’s lives in infamy, you’re gonna remember what you
were doin’, where you where, what you had for lunch. It’ll be like
November 22 1963, May 30th 1975, May 18th 1980.
Days like that.
I’m thinkin’ May First, or May Day as
it’s sometimes called should now become a National Holiday, we could use
another National Holiday, don’t ya’ think?
Would have loved to have
seen the look on Bin Laden’s face when he saw that his ’70 Virgins’
actually had long scaly tails with white-hot pitchforks.
Probably butt-ugly too…
Hey Bin, how’s that 70 virgin deal
workin’ out for ya’, huh Bub?
Yup, a free Spring Game, seven dollar
parkin’, and a dead Bin Laden. Priceless…
Yeah, Bin Laden, I gotta figure he’s
number two behind Adolph Hitler. Number two is a good number for Bin
Laden, it sorta fits. Actually he’d be number three if you throw in
Satan himself. Does Satan even count?
The head of the snake now severed, but
the snake pit has been stirred. Need to stay on our toes, but hey,
here’s to those Navy Seals. I like the fact that it was a
bullet shot to the head and not some laser guided bomb from 30 thousand
feet. A bullet from close range has a much more personal touch to
it. He knew it was comin’…
But enough of the politicking, everyone
involved gets credit. The hunt for Bin Laden did not start last year, or
even on 9-11-01, but it did end on 5-1-11, it is what it is…did I just
Yeah the celebratin’ crowds in New York
and Washington DC did my heart good. Now I hear talk about the proper
burial for the scum bag. I once worked for a county jail that had a
large grinder in the basement that chewed up the sewage before it went
into the actual sewer line itself, kinda’ like a huge garbage disposal.
It was three feet across with a hatch. Bin Laden would fit…
Well, it seems Bin Laden was buried at
sea. The C.I.A. rarely takes my advice anymore…
Good job everybody! Celebrate this
moment, WE deserve it.
So I take out a loan and fill up my tank
on the Jeep, I used my personal holiday to get Saturday off to take in
the Spring Game. It just dawned on me, all this happened while I was on
vacation, well except for Sunday, these minor details…
I know it cuts against the grain for
many a folk in the Seattle area, but I’m seeing a purty darn good
football team there at the UW. The Tight End position, one that didn’t
even exist last season is now a position of strength. Jake Locker could
have really benefited from these guys, why he may have even been drafted
at number seven…
These tight ends, Austin Seferian-Jenkins,
the ‘I was in high school last month’ 6’6” phenom is perched above a
pack of book ends, multiple shelves if you will. Evan Hudson and Michael
Hartvigson both go 6’6”. Marek Domanski is 6’5”. These guys are all in
the 250 pound range. The shorty of the group is Marlion Barnett, a
stumpy guy at 6’2”. A transfer this year is Cameron Salley who
transferred in from UPS via Central Kitsap high school, Cameron is a
legit 6’4” and 235 pounds. Jake would have been thrilled to have known
Cameron last year…but no.
Locker, was he the only Husky
Quarterback to finish his senior year without a Tight End?
And he still came back for his senior
year. Still a wonderment, but not a surprise, he was Jake…
The Tight Ends, much like my Bella is a
‘chick-magnet’, these guys are ball-magnets. They are catchin’ the damn
ball. Keith Price and Nick Montana are truly blessed.
Yup, these Tight Ends, what a luxury for
our new quarterbacks, that and the stable of running backs the UW has,
led by Chris Polk with a sturdy Collier at his heels. Now here comes Mr.
Deontae Cooper, Bishop Sankey, taking it all in from behind, but itching
for a chance.
Speakin’ of a chance, Mr. Willis Wilson
got his recently, a 5-10 185-pounder from Lakes high school has shown
some shake and bake. Ya’ gotta like a guy named Willis Wilson. Maybe we
should just call him ‘Dub Dub’…
The receivers are deep and proven, gotta
keep them all happy. The fullbacks are now an option, I’m liking Zack
Fogerson and Jonathon Amosa, both can catch and run, and throw a block.
Much to the dismay of some on the
message boards, the offensive line will be an improved unit this comin’
year, and not just by a small margin. Book it…
This offense just may be fun to watch.
Ya’ think? The quarterback is surrounded by weapons, Jake was born a
year too early, his momma would agree, but all are happy now.
See how that worked out?
Now for the bad news, it’s May. Four
months to fall practice, five months until our opener with the National
Champs, Eastern Washington. Good Dawg I love writin’ that! National
Yup, I’ll be wearin’ a red and purple
hybrid shirt, I’ll be lookin’ stupid and feelin’ good!
The Football Gods are smilin’ on the UW.
Even the weather cooperated for the Spring Game. I was in a good mood,
what with the day off and all. I brought my favorite girl to the game
too! My Alaskan Malamute Bella, she was worried about getting’ adopted
again, but no she came home with me, she was just an advertisement and a
member of the WAMAL Alumni Association. Yeah, my buddy Brian from
WAMAL brought his malamute girl, Rosemary too, yeah, kinda’ like
a double date I suppose… Harry ‘The Husky’ stopped by and said hello,
dang dude, you got blue eyes. Malamutes have BROWN EYES!!
Yup, we just may have got some dawgs adopted there on Saturday, thanks
to all who stopped by and said hello. Good luck with your decisions.
Brian and Rosemary, with a young Husky fan. “Rosemary is fluffy, my dog
Speakin’ of four legged dawgs, check out this guy!
OUR FEATURED DAWG OF
THE WEEK! HERE’S LOKI!
is named for the
‘Norske God of Mischief’. Gotta love it. Loki is not a
pure bred malamute, got a little Husky in him, but what the hell. He
looks like he was designed by a committee, but hey, it works for him,
chick-magnet. He’s named right too, he’s a complete comic, surprisingly,
as Loki was one of 150 dawgs found on four foot chains, nearly
starving to death in Alaska. It’s a wonderment what some humans can do,
disgusting, but look at Bin Laden, pure evil, that’s what
and his pals can be seen

months to wait for Eastern, dang. Tackle Erik Kohler and walk-on LB Alec
Kimble left the game late with MCL sprains, the message boards panic in
true Seattle form. They’ll be fine. DT Semisi Tokolahi is ahead of
schedule in his rehab and lookin’ good!
Tokolahi is now a favorite of mine.
We’ll be fine…
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the
family of Danny Shelton. Hang in there buddy…
