It’s not even 9am and I’m getting ready for tonight’s game. Truth be told I’m chomping at the bit to get back on the field and see the guys play. Feels like forever since we’ve had a game thanks to the bye week and now a Monday night game.
Everyone on our crew has been watching the weather the last couple day, but none more than me since I’m the one on the sideline exposed to all the elements. I’ve seen forecasts that predict temperatures in the upper 20’s during the game, which is why I’ve packed all the cold weather gear to take with me.
If you’re trying to make sense of the pile of clothes there is a thermal layer from Columbia sports wear, three different kinds of gloves, silk glove liners, wool tights, wool socks, furry lined boots, a scarf and a giant puffy coat. That’s in addition to the Seahawks pullover, hat and jeans I’ll wear.
I think that’ll do it tonight – at least I’m hoping so!
