My action packed roll started last Saturday when Diane, some friends of ours and me attended the Oregon vs. Washington football game in Seattle.
Being a Duck alum, the big win was really exciting. I posted some info on this game here.
The next morning, I was off to Ohio for a couple days of business, arriving back home late Tuesday night.
The next morning, Diane and I hit the road for Vancouver, BC where we had dinner at the great Chambar restaurant and saw the U2 show Wednesday night.
I am not a big fan of concerts in huge venues like football stadiums, regardless of who is playing. However, U2 did try and bridge the gap between the stage and the masses with a huge video screen and their passionate performance. All in all, it was a good show. Opening band Black Eyed Peas exceeded my expectations too by throwing down a compelling set.
On Thursday morning we met some friends at Cafe Medina for breakfast...a really, really good breakfast...and hit the road home.
Arriving home in the late afternoon, I turned around and headed out to meet friends at the Seattle Sounders FC playoff game vs. the Houston Dynamo at Seattle's Qwest Field. Our seats were great and there was a lot of action on the pitch. The game ended in a 0-0 tie. This means that the squad that wins game two of the series moves on to the next round of the MLS playoffs.
And then I went home.
