Seahawks coach Pete Carroll just spent the past decade in southern California, where half the population is employed as key grips on "Two and a Half Men" and it's actually against the law for it to be cloudy. So forgive the man for thinking those of us in Seattle can just drop everything and run outside on a nice day.
Yesterday, during what will likely be one of the last perfectly-blue-sky days of the year, Carroll Tweeted this.
Ya know, I've recently stopped wishing mental illnesses on other people (the therapist calls this "progress"), but I'm going to make an exception for Carroll who I think, during his first Seattle winter, would look extra fetching with a side of seasonal affective disorder.
Picture it: it's mid-December. Its been drizzling for a month straight. The Hawks have lost four or five. And Carroll is on the sideline wearing a hoodie and a frown, looking like the headphone feed that normally pipes in his offensive coordinator has been hijacked by the new Belle & Sebastian.
Better invest in that dawn simulator now, coach! It's gonna be a long winter!
