I’ve been a life long Seahawks fan (good years and all the bad ones). I’ve turned off the game and the post game that I usually watch and record. Sport was my only and last refuge from divisive politics.
yesterday I heard “the professor” John Clayton say, on our (Seattle) ESPN radio, that the first reason for low ratings was Donald Trump. Last year it was the election diverting viewer's attention now it is waiting/watching what Trump will do and say next. Then it is the National Anthem thing.
I said “huh?”. I am not watching the NFL because I am glued to CNN etc to see what Trump is up to? Whatta stretch!
In my first year of college (Ellensburg WA) we used to watch and stare at this HUGE airplane fly over many times a day. It was 747s doing pilot training at Moses Lake (Grant County : KMWH). Lots of JAL pilots etc trained there.
Years later, I loved flying in Asia on business. Most flights there were 747’s. My all time favorite plane for travel, upstairs in business class.
