Not necessarily in that order…..
Well Sunday was an enjoyable day. Headed to Fados for the Ireland game at 11am. The game was clashing with the build-up to a Seahawks game at 1.15 so the pub was 95% Seahawks fans eating steaks for breakfast and 5% rugby fans drinking pints for breakfast. Only 1 TV out of about 15 had the game. Some of my old Dublin colleagues showed up at half-time so I had a very enjoyable few scoops with them before I headed to the Seahawks game. Exhausting stuff.
The Seahawks experience was something else. Fantastic atmosphere, I had a great seat about 150 feet above the 45 yard line. I was sitting in between a Bucs fan and two 89 year old codgers. Had a chat over beer and chips at half-time with a guy who spotted my rugby jersey. The weather was phenomenal. High 20s. Still don’t get the Fahrenheit nonsense.
After the game I gave my earlier drinking companions a buzz and they had moved to another bar where I duly joined them. Had another few mellow beers sitting out on the street. Only had to walk about 4 blocks home from there. A 6" meatball sub helped me on the way. Huzzah for Subway.
