Melinda and I are just about out the door, out on a date on the eve of her birthday. We are the lucky recipients of two tickets to tonight’s Seattle Sounders FC soccer game, given to us by our co-worker, Liana. It promises to be a great game. The Sounders are on an absolute roll, having won 5 straight games and having only lost 1 of their first 8. They are playing Real Salt Lake, the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last year. With temperatures in the mid 70’s and Liana’s great seats, we should have a blast.
But, as you can see from today’s photo (which, incidentally is from a previous date of Melinda’s and mine, this one from 1994 on the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train), we’ll have to move fast to keep from being run over. Game time is in an hour and Melinda is still getting ready.
