In Case You Were Wondering, Greg Nickels Goes To Sporting Events Now

Attention world!

Greg Nickels, former mayor of the City of Seattle, would like to let it be known that on May 7, 2010 he attended a Seattle Mariners baseball game at Safeco Field!

No, seriously.

The guy who gift-wrapped our former NBA franchise for Oklahoma City (and at one time admitted that he didn’t really attend too many events of sport) caught my attention this evening by posting that photo you see on your left to his Facebook news feed.

To further prove his devotion to sports, he entered the caption “Play ball!” along with his mobile upload. Just in case you had any doubt whatsoever that he knows at least one cliche about the sport he’s paying witness to right now.

Of course, now we await the game’s first touchdown. And if we’re lucky, Ichiro will hurry up and snag the Golden Snitch and end this mother before it even starts. Boo Yah!

  1. Nice Harry Potter reference. But now that I think about it, Ichiro would make an excellent Seeker.

  2. Agreed… who would our bludgers be? Nobody can hit a ball more than 300 feet.

  3. Guti has to be our keeper right? I nominate Sweeney and Junior as bludgers! Alex, you should totally do a whole post on who would play where on the Mariners quiditch team, lol!
