Super Bowl memories

A Pittsburgh Steelers fan in Western Washington state is at the center of this as reported in the Kitsap Sun: Seahawks Fan — and Fast Food Cook — Arrested for Spitting on Steeler Fan's Burger. I would say that your average Seahawks fan does not want to know what happens to their food in local eateries.... but do the few Seahawk fans that must exist here (maybe?) ever show their support in public? And then would the local perpetrator of a similar act be arrested here, or given an award?

Actually, the byline for the story is South Kitsap. I don't want to impugn the residents of Kitsap proper. I wonder if it make sense to call it a suburb of Kitsap. And the headline does not mention it, but the arrest may have had more to do with offering a police deputy a bag of marijuana. It really is a funny story.

Which sparks the random thought of the day... don't ask me the logic that lead to this: Remember the Rocky Mountain News columnist Bill Johnson? He was not even the sport's columnist out there, more the Brian O'Neill of things Denver I would say. His current column is something about Bison? I bet our statsgeek has written about Elk at some point in his writing portfolio... Yet he was sent out to Pittsburgh to cover the Pittsburgh-Denver game and wound up insulting us. Note the link to his initial Pittsburgh column has expired. I know many here consider the Pittsburgh-Denver AFC playoff game back then far more important than any political primary.... but it seems that from Denver's perspective the upcoming primary race is a newsworthy event. Someone should use the primary as an excuse to invite ol' Bill back to the Burgh for the political coverage, sort of a sequel. He said he wound up liking the town (sort of). Why that latter link is there but not the former.. hmmm.

I've seen a car parked in the Soldiers & Sailors garage with a bumper sticker reading "Seattle 10, Referees 21".

If that car also has large Seahawk helment stickers on the driver and passenger doors, I see it fairly regularly on the Parkway East. When stuck in traffic, he gets honked at an awful lot!

Didn't see the sides, so I don't know.
