2005 NFL Cheerleader Tour - Day 23: Seattle Seahawks

We are deep into the home stretch of the 2005 tour. We make our last trip out west with a stop in Seattle. As I look at the web site of the Seattle Sea-Gals, it reminds me of a few other stops on the tour -San Francisco and San Diego. Those two areas are noted as wired communities, but had poor web sites. Well, Seattle is noted as a great technology community, and the Sea-Gals HAVE the web site to back it up.

Their web site isn't the best we have seen, but a lot of the extras are there. History photos, audition photos, community appearances, wallpapers, news updates, two days of calendar photos and videos, plus video clips of the girls as part of their bios. Fantastic! My only quibble about the site is the fact that the navigation could be tweaked a bit for easier use.

The heart of the matter is always the members of the squad. The Sea-Galsremind me of a great team. There are really no superstars, but about ten really good players. Amie is probably the star, followed by Anna, Gena, Lindsay, Kylee and Sequoia, to name a few.

Seattle is a nice surprise. The Sea-Gal's have been coming on lately, and have made some big strides in the last two seasons. This is definitely a team on the rise. Look for them to continue to make some noise in 2006.

Rating 8.0 out of 10.

As if "Kylee" wasn't bad enough, now we have "Sequoia."

What I wanna know is what the heck she is doing with a DOGBONE stuck in her bikini bottoms, and it looks like it has a chunk missing out of it.

That'd confuse even me, especially when I don't see a dog anywhere in sight. Heh.

The new Bond, Daniel Craig. I linked to this picture for a reason. I noticed this morning that Daniel Craig's bio says he is six feet tall, then I saw this picture of him and Tom Hanks, who is 6'1". Here is another picture of him next to Hanks - in which he appears even shorter! So what is his correct height? So I'll lock in my guess at five ten and a half. I guess "six feet" is not a very big lie. Nowhere near enough to put him in Christian Slater territory.

The trailer from Nine Lives (2005)
  • "Nine Lives" is a moving exploration of the individual experiences of nine women as told through nine single unbroken takes. As characters from one story reappear in supporting roles in others, Rodrigo Garcia interweaves a grand tapestry of universal resonance that hinges on performances from an incredible ensemble. By depicting nine different characters at emotional crossroads, "Nine Lives" examines how we so often find ourselves captive in relationships, both past and present. Sandra (Elpida Carrillo), is literally in prison and wants desperately to connect with her visiting child. Diana (Robin Wright Penn) confronts the sudden flash of a past relationship long after she has moved on to a new life. Holly (Lisa Gay Hamilton) can’t seem to move forward until her stepfather acknowledges the pain he has caused her. Sonia (Holly Hunter) reels from her boyfriend's disclosure of an intimate secret to their closest friends. Teenager Samantha (Amanda Seyfreid) is caught in a static loop as the peacemaker between her parents. Lorna (Amy Brenneman) attempts to comfort her ex-husband after his wife's suicide and finds herself implicated in the tragic death. Ruth (Sissy Spacek) considers straying from married life during a motel rendezvous. Camille (Kathy Baker) faces the limitations of her previously dependable body. Maggie (Glenn Close) allows her own life to be eclipsed by that of her young daughter, Maria (Dakota Fanning). Filmmaker Rodrigo Garcia (Things You Can Tell Just By Looking at Her) plumbs the depths with these nine everyday women who meet the travails and disappointments of life with a resilience that is at once heartening and heartbreaking.

  • Gerard Depardieu plays the part of Europe. (He had to lose weight for the role)
  • Depardieu and Latifah together? And they say Hollywood is afraid of weighty themes.

  • For his part, Kim told reporters today that madman experience was “overrated” and that he believed that his personal chef was the best choice: “I am fully confident that as President of North Korea, Kyung Hwa Chim will be capable of making totally unhinged, loony decisions.”

Mariah Carey says she has been 'born again' several times in this lifetime. You really can't be born too many times, can you? I like to be reborn at least three times a day. Maybe more if I see a stimulating sex scene.

British playwright Harold Pinter wins Nobel Literature Prize. It makes some sense to honor him while he is still alive. He was already considered an established playwright and a distinctive avant-garde voice when I entered college - and that was 39 years ago! Actually, he's not that old, because he was a wunderkind in the late 50s. He turned 75 Monday.
