Seattle Greg and I caught a ride with one of his friends that lives up this
way. We ended up hanging out with him at his place in Bellevue.
Some of our other RCB friends arrived in the afternoon after their long drive
up. A few of us piled into a car and headed into the city. We ended up down by
Qwest Field and Safeco Stadium at a restaurant/bar that had an amazing Hotdog
wrapped in bacon, deep-fried and covered in cheese. WOW that was good!! I was
dropped off at my hotel and got all checked in. Here it is only and it feels so late and looks even later
than it feels. I am staying in the Renaissance Seattle Hotel. It is a very nice
upscale hotel in a large 28 story building. My room is on the 12th
floor but I overlook I-5 looking North East; I can see a little bit of the
harbor. Heading out to get some snacks and drinks from the local grocery store
the Seattle rain has finally
arrived. I decided to get all my rain gear on and head down to F.X. McRory’s
the restaurant/bar that RSL has taken over for the weekend. The walk down is in
a downpour and I was definitely not singing in the rain! F.X. is packed with
RSL fans but I am able to find some of my RCB mates. We eventually head out to
Owl ‘N Thistle pub where we have some good Magners Cider. As a group we are singing and chanting for our team runing into Seattle and LA fans along the way; we are now SINGING IN THE RAIN!
Then it is off to
Fado Irish Pub where we find Strongbow on tap.
hanging out at Fado’s I walk back to the hotel in the rain and call it a night.
Tomorrow is the big day!!
