  2. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    Those stations happen to be in two of the major activity epicenters of Seattle. So no, it is not an amusement ride.
  3. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    The monorail links Seattle's major shopping district with Seattle Center where Key Arena, Opera House, Memorial Stadium, etc. is located and many fairs and festivals take place. More than tourists use the monorail. I think what you are trying to get at is that it is not a commuter line. When I worked downtown, I only used it to get events at Seattle Center.
  4. MLS

    Seattle unveiled their jersey today: Microsoft will pay the club $4,000,000 a year for five years. They also announced that season ticket deposits had reached 16,200 and they are having a 102% conversation rate of deposits to season tickets. In a few months (or less), Seattle will lead the MLS in season ticket sales. Season ticket holders: 1. Toronto FC - 16,641 2. Seattle Sounders FC - 16,200 (begins play in 2009) 3. Los Angeles Galaxy - 7,915 4. D.C. United - 5,976 5. Philadelphia - 5,000 (rough estimate of ticket deposits from mid-May; begins play in 2010) 6. Real Salt Lake - 4,632 7. Houston Dynamo - 4,116 8. New England Revolution - 4,001 9. San Jose Earthquakes - 3,822 10. Columbus Crew - 3,227 11. New York Red Bulls - 3,170 12. FC Dallas - 3,002 13. Colorado Rapids - 2,968 14. Chicago Fire - 2,759 15.

  5. NBA Talk

    ^ Mark Cuban is the man. He should be NBA commish, David Stern sucks. Bud Selig is thousands of times a superior commish to that corrupt, angry, liar, David Stern.

    Here are some aerials of Chambers Bay from 2005 right before construction Looking west over South Puget Sound toward the Olympic Mountains: Looking east, Mt. Rainier & Mt. Adams in distance, Ft. Lewis and McChord Air Force Base also visible: Looking north towards the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Tacoma is below 'Inc.'. Seattle in distance just below the larger mountain, which is Mt. Baker. Glacier Peak is the other prominent visible mountain:
  7. Golf

    The USGA just announced that Chambers Bay will host both the 2010 U.S. Amateur & the 2015 U.S. Open. Chambers Bay is a new municipal course in University Place, Washington, just outside of Tacoma. Here are some articles on the subject: U.S. Open here? It took a vision - Tacoma News Tribune Digging An Open Landmark - Golf Digest Chambers Bay is that good - Golf Digest Pics of Chambers Bay and Wisconsin's Erin Hills - Golf Digest Highlights: [*]Chambers Bay opened just last June, and it
  8. MLS

    Here is a press release from a few days ago: MLS Seattle Reaches 10,000 Season Ticket Memberships (from Seattle MLS) KIRKLAND, WASH.
  9. The Washington Watering Hole

    There is a 100% chance the Sonics will not be in the city limits of Seattle. Blame the idiot mayor and grossly inept city council for that. I am glad I no longer live in Seattle proper. When the heck are the voters going to wake up? Go Renton!
  10. The Washington Watering Hole

    Actually the only way to get the NHL is to save the Sonics. If they build a new arena in Bellevue, it will be NHL viable. Key Arena is not NHL viable.
  11. The Washington Watering Hole

    ^ that wasn't Seattle U's problem, they were a D1 powerhouse. They finished 2nd overall in the NCAA basketball tournament in the Elgin Baylor days. Part of the reason they dropped down was the program was getting a little shady.
  12. The Washington Watering Hole

    Seattle U. making a Div. I comeback? USF Director of Athletics Bill Hogan Named Athletics Director at Seattle University That would be sweet. It was stupid for them to kill their successful D-1 program in 1980. Gonzaga and Portland have both shown that Seattle U. was wrong in that decision. Hopefully they can work their way into the West Coast Conference adding a third NW school to the three Bay Area schools and the three So. Cal schools.
  13. Charlotte MLB Team Speculation

    That isn't Portland's weather, we are talking Portland, OR, not Portland, ME. Portland doesn't get much rain at all during the summer. The rain in the PNW is seasonal; wet and mild winters, dry summers with no or low humidity. It goes weeks without rain. No thundershowers, nothing.
  14. Charlotte MLB Team Speculation

    That means every city east of Denver is too rainy for baseball then. Charlotte gets a heck of a lot more rain during the baseball season as Portland. Portland gets 12.07 inches of rain on average Apr-Oct. Only the MLB cities in CA, CO, & AZ get less. Sure it does.
  15. Columbiana Centre

    It was Yakima, WA but that store closed. The smallest is probably Anchorage, AK. Next smallest after that would probably be Salem, OR, if you don't count it as part of the Portland metro. Spokane, WA would probably be after that.
