Three Days of the Seahawk


There's this old movie called Three Days of the Condor, where Robert Redford plays a CIA worker that finds finds all his co-workers dead. His CIA code name is Condor. In the next seventy-two hours almost everyone he trusts will try to kill him.

So I thought, "Hmmm, Bloof, how in John Clayton's bunions can you make a catchy title for a review of the first three days of Seahawks news? I've got it - I'll call it "Three Days of the Seahawk"! I know it's a stretch, but it's got a bird in the title, three days, and Robert Redford gets to open-mouth lip-wrestle Faye Dunaway on the cover, which is vaguely reminiscent of the treatment Alba gives to anyone who compliments him.

Wait. This gets dumber. I stared writing this yesterday. This should be titled "Four days of the Seahawk", retreading the events since camp opened, say, four days ago.

Wow, this is lame. Let's cut to Seahawks stuff already:

Letters from camp: Lots of stuff happening. Kelly Jennings signed, albeit late, but before the pads went on. Ken Hamlin started banging, but the true test of his rehabilitation will be in scrimmage on Saturday. Ruskell and Holmgren started out in a good mood, providing great leadership and effectiveness. But today, Lofa Tatupu is pissing off Mike Holmgren.

Great interviews and articles regarding Matt Hasselbeck, Michael Boulware, Pork Chop, and Julian Peterson. Darry Tapp picks up the mantle of rookie Seahawks Diary Writer.

Events around Cyberspace: A well meaning commenter wears people thin on Sando's blog, and even draws counsel from "The Mike". Folks are bringing their own observations from Cheney on SeahawkBlue. On Seahawks Insider, right now you can catch an argument about the validity of FootballOutsiders.com. Also one notorious troll continues to be an obnoxios cretin.

That's all for now. GO SEAHAWKS!!!


Late Entries: Look out, Spencer's comfortable. Tim Ruskell released a TE, signed another, and had him catching passes - all in the same day. The defense frustrated the offense, but Seneca ran for a TD. Lofa tears it up.

Later Entry: No wonder the defense had the upper hand - they started tackling today for the first time. Peter Warrick's goal is to make it to the Pro Bowl as a punt returner, and here's a shock - Bob Casuullo wants to cut down on the special teams penalties.

  1. I was worried when I saw about Lofa pissing off Holmgren, but now understand why. Its OK Mike, now you know how the other 31 offensive coordinator's in the league feel when thinking about the Seahawk Defense!

    Hey, even if it's a slam, I sport wood by just getting my name mentioned in someone else's post or a topic title, so keep up the good work!

    You know, I've always had a crush on Faye Dunaway in that drunken-slut-still-at-the-bar-at-closing-time sort of way!

  5. Faye Dunaway is a mature actress, probably best known for her role opposite Warren Beatty in Bonnie & Clyde or as Joan Crawford in the movie Mommie Dearest.

    She was also a bar fly in one of my favorite sleeper movies of all time, Albino Alligator.
