THE BLUEST SKIES
On one of our broadcasts in Seattle, Bob made a reference to a song Perry Como performed many years ago, “The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen Are In Seattle.”
Hard to argue. In four days there, we had a couple of brilliantly clear days…and the retractable roof was open for three of the four games. Sure beats last year.
Joining Bob, Don Free and me was Royals fan Kevin Koopman (lower left). He made the three and a half hour flight from Anchorage to see the Royals. He saw Zack’s one-hitter. Kevin grew up in Freemont, Nebraska and is a lifelong Royals fan.
Looking back at part of downtown Seattle from the pier. Breathtaking. Of course the flip side are the dreary winter days (and spring…and fall…and occasionally summer). But when it’s not cloudy, not many places in America are more beautiful.
At the bottom of the hill near Pier 66…is Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market. It’s more than 100 years old.
This is the famous Pike Place Fish stand…where the employees throw fish. Just my luck, no throwing fish while I was standing there. You know what they say…people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw fish….not sure who “they” are…but seriously…
One more shot of the water from the pier. Water, mountains, blue skies. Nice place to visit…especially with weather like this!
