Seattle Thought and Love

Not to get all fucking hippy, but let's throw out some good thoughts to our 206 brothers and sisters. Three friends went missing snowboarding up at Crystal Mt. a couple of weeks ago, and it looks bleak. I only met Devlin a couple of times, and he always was a super nice guy. Having gone through some of the same emotions of having a friend lost out there, and realizing that the possibility of ever seeing them again... Pretty tough. We all seem to have an acute ability to challenge the possibilities of survival at any given moment with our actions. I know it's not a good way to rationalize it, but they did it having fun, which is admirable. I just have a great deal of love and respect for my friends up there, and I know all of this has them pretty beat up. The following words are by one of my closest friends, and pics are by another solid guy. Thanks, that is all.

Words by Matt Case/Pic's by Peter
I've known Devlin for a long time. I used to stop by his place to pick up a package and play video games when he broke his leg. He was always a welcome sight when I'd walk into the Counterbalance. He took me out to Wade's in Bellevue and showed me how to shoot guns. He was smart, fun, funny, and caring. I have kept a lot of hope to be able to see him again and that hope is now fading. I will miss seeing him very much.

I've known Kevin for a long time too. That guy was good people. He was always there to BS with. He was always offering a helping hand. He was always fun to be around. The idea of not seeing him again and not really having any type of true closure breaks my heart. I will miss him very much.

I didn't know Phil, but many of my friends did. He has been described very much like I have described Kevin and Devlin. He too, will be sorely missed.

In the end, these three guys went out doing something they loved to do. It's pretty poor consolation to those of us who are left behind and mourning their loss, but something has to be said about three men who lived their lives in the manner they wanted.

New Place

For Wednesday and Friday games we'll be playing in front of Civic Plaza Apartments. Same time. Sunday polo just might be swapped to there as well, pending the general consensus. Other than that, keep kicking ass out there. This last Sunday saw some of the best play yet!
