Broaden your horizons at these performances, plays + beyond.
With the disheartening state of the news cycle and a collective unease we can’t help but deeply feel, we’re looking to be uplifted by positive people doing inspiring things. Namely, we’re diving into a season of celebrating the arts—on stages, screens and shelves around town. (Sports feel like a good escape right now, too!)
Football excitment meets Ivar’s Sailgating, while concerts + Oktoberfest fêtes enliven the season.
Our fall calendar is already filling up with spirited sports outings and rocking shows soon to be taking over Seattle stages. Here are a couple ideas to brighten the season.
American Express once again held its annual “Hawks Island” in Seattle on October 1st, hosting several hundred American Express Card Members and American Express-accepting merchants on a 200-foot+ barge (the length of more than two basketball courts) at Pier 66. For the second consecutive year we had the chance to attend this fun pre-game experience. Hawks Island is definitely a must go if you are a casual or diehard Seahawks fan like myself.
Benefit concerts, Seahawks parties, Icelandic fetes & more seasonal fun.
Fall’s here, and we’re not mad about it. Seattle had a pretty awesome run this summer, plus the list of things to do, see, eat and hear this autumn is looking mighty appealing.
With NFL season less than a week away, Dooney & Bourke has a new line of women’s handbags and accessories for the Seattle Seahawks. Dooney & Bourke has created fashionable ways female fans can incorporate fandom into their everyday life. A way for women to rock their feminine side, while still cheering on their favorite NFL team. The Seahawks face the Oakland Raiders at 7:00pm tonight for the last preseason game. Go Hawks!
Aptly described by Richard “I’m Better Than You At Life” Sherman, the “poopfest” that is Thursday Night NFL games kicked off with the Los Angeles Rams visiting Seattle to take on the Seahawks.
The Rams, who just recently fired former head coach Jeff Fisher, have been on a tailspin as of late and came into Thursday on a four-game losing streak and fresh off of a 42-14 beatdown at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons.
Earl Thomas was absent and the Seattle Seahawks were away at Lambeau Field, but that doesn’t excuse any of their play on Sunday, which was one of their worst performances of the season (offensively and defensively).
Russell Wilson threw five (five!) interceptions, the defense just kinda went through the motions, and the wideouts dropped some easy catches that really hurt the Seahawks.
As the Philadelphia Eagles rolled into Seattle on Sunday, they wouldn’t have guessed that backup quarterback Trevone Boykin would line up as a running back for a play and that star wideout Doug Baldwin would be the most accurate passer of the day.
But football is all about trickery, isn’t it? Play action, false counts, pump fakes — all a part of the game that we devote an entire day of the week to.
It’s clear that Russell Wilson is hurt. His rushing yards have dropped dramatically this year, and his fluttering scrambles out of the pocket that usually frustrate opponents have been virtually nonexistent.
Despite his extremely limited mobility, he has maintained a stellar pocket presence, possessing the wherewithal to either throw the ball away or take the hit while protecting the football.
If only the game was outdoor, in the rain, with mud slung all over the place and players slipping everywhere and fans wearing those rain poncho things. If only.
With a final score of 6-6, you’d think that both teams were struggling in some soaking wet conditions, unable to properly run or pass the ball because of the slippery pigskin. Instead, the game was played inside the marvelous University of Phoenix Stadium, with no weather bothering the players like an extra defender. You’d also think that would excuse both kickers from missing point blank layups with the game on the line. But, football is a weird sport, and weird things happen.
