Maybe doing it this way provides him with some sort of loophole that he hopes will protect him when the lawsuits start.

Yeah apparently he wrote a book but his publisher was forced to redact all the names before they went to print

TBH I would consider it but the reality I probably wouldn't even know about unless they played at the Ottawa Bluesfest (aka generic giant outdoor music festival) I probably wouldn't even know they were in town.

It was awesome.

Saturday Morning, picked up by a shuttle at 9 AM and we got on a boat at 9:30 for "sailgating" around Lake Washington. Brunch served and full open bar on board for about 3 hours before the Huskies game. It was really foggy but we got some breathtaking views as the sun finally broke through the fog. Also got pretty drunk. It was a lot of fun. I get sea sick normally but waters were very calm, and I didn't feel a thing (the very strong rye/cokes may have helped)

anchored in the harbour and took a water taxi to shore for the Huskies/UCLA game. was pretty cool. We had awesome seats. Game was a bit of a blowout as expected, but still fun.

boat back after the game, more food and booze.

Next day, up at 9 AM and over to a pub to watch the morning NFL games. Then Seahawks game at 1 PM. Was my first live NFL game and it was amazing. It is incredible how loud the seahawks stadium is. Also happened to get one of the games of the year, with like 10 lead changes and the Seahawks winning 41-38 on a last minute TD drive.

Dinner after at an unbelievable steak restaurant. Had Wagyu tenderloin and crab legs and lobster tail. Russell Wilson and his entourage came in at some point and got a round of applause from the restaurant. Back to Alberta early the next morning.

My sis has an echo and it seems like more work to turn her lights on and off than simply flicking a switch. But that’s just me (and I’m sure it does more?)

Rogers sent me a Google Home for free. I haven't set it up yet but I'm not seeing that I'll have a lot of use for it but who knows.

I can’t find it anywhere but I thought I saw Arp post about being excited to see Molly’s Game.

I saw it last night and it was really awesome.

Anyone have the inside scoop on who the players actually were? lol

small perk from FCP is that the publisher sent me the book a few years ago. I haven't seen the movie but I did read the book and I highly recommend it. Toby Maguire was in most of the games and is a big winner and a dick. Ben Affleck was an occasional player.

Edit: the book uses all real names

My sis said the “rumors” were that Maguire was the consensus “Player X” in the movies. Makes sense.

Might have to go find that book now.
