Hope you all have a fun, exciting, and interesting holiday with friends, family, or both. Merry Christmas, everyone, and thanks for hanging out with us all year long and making USSM a unique community that I’m proud to be a part of.

    I think we owe a thanks to you and the gang for making the unique community available.

    It’s going to be a bit of a strange Christmas over here. My brother is home from college. So is my sister, but she just underwent surgery and is still up in Seattle getting back to health. My mom’s with her. So for Christmas today I’ll be meeting my dad, brother, and other sister who is still in high school.

    Merry Christmas everyone. I hope I’m the only one with a cold.

    Had turducken for the first time……..can’t say I can recommend it.

    For those of you who celebrate, have a wonderful day.

    I have a cold AND have to work today.

    Couldn’t help but notice this morning that the Starbucks less than a mile from my house is not only open but has about ten cars piled up in the drive-thru lane … man, Christmas sure isn’t what it used to be. If any USS Mariner readers are among them, remember when placing your order, specify: “No WHIP.”

    Jim – actually I noticed that Xmas openings peaked about 4-5 years ago. Now more and more stores and restaurants are closed again. Makes it hard to do the Jewish thing when all of the Thai places are closed.

    (Yeah, yeah, I know it’s supposed to be Chinese. Sue me!)

    this was our first year for a family Christmas Eve get-together, so it is oddly relaxing and quiet just hanging out on the actual day…

    and after our exciting drive home last night across the pass (just before the avalanche control stoppage, thank goodness) my brother this morning sends me a shot of his in-laws enjoying Christmas in Arizona.

    hmm. wonder where the next cheap Southwest sunshine flight heads?

    Merry Christmas everybody!

  9. Graham on December 25th, 2006 11:14 am

    Cheers, Dave, and everyone here. Merry Christmas.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    Enjoying a very nice Henckel knife set this morning. Already put into use. I can’t believe how dull my ex-favorite knives are. The Henckel will take your finger off before you can say ouch.

    Happy Holidays, y’all. I’m enjoying the new Nikon D50 I got myself as a Christmas present, and contemplating the pros and cons of having two households this year instead of one. Enjoy yourselves!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Happy holidays to all. And many thanks to Dave, Derek, Jeff, and Jason for all their hard work in hosting an awesome site for us all to enjoy.

    Merry Christmas to all! Thank you for the great chance to talk Mariner Baseball with a knowledgeable group who share a common goal. Thank you for putting this together for us all to agree to disagree.

    Humbug, damnit. I caught me some flu bug or food poisoning. Not sure which, but it sucks.

  17. Karen on December 25th, 2006 2:52 pm

    Happy holidays to all, especially our Leaders, DMZ, Dave, Jeff, and Jason. Thanks, guys, for providing a clearing house for nearly-sane Mariners discussion. 🙂

    I’m cook at our house, and all my sibs showed up for the holidays as usual: ham with peach sauce, cheesy scalloped potatoes with green peppers and onions, and peas with pearl onions on the first day, holiday cookies for dessert; tri-tip steaks, twice baked potatoes, green beans with almonds, and brownies with homemade peppermint cherry ice cream for dessert. Today: leftovers…!

  18. msb on December 25th, 2006 3:30 pm

    so, Karen, when does the ferry leave for your house?

  19. Typical Idiot Fan on December 25th, 2006 3:41 pm

    All kinds of rumors flying about…

    It is now the day after Christmas here in Taiwan. Christmas is celebrated commercially (all the stores are decorated) but not really in any other sense except by the expat community. As a result, it was business as usual yesterday and Christmas was a bottle of red wine that was opened in the afternoon and sipped into the evening. Along with the cheese and crackers it was an enjoyable meal.

    For some reason, even in the middle of the woods in southern Virginia, we have internet. So, happy holiday! Whee!

    My mom, who is now a Nats fan by location, doesn’t seem to understand why Doyle is cool and why she should root for him. Also, she changed the name of her Nats bear to “Ryan Zimmerbear” instead of “Jose Guillenbear” and seems annoyed that he’s been taken away by the Mariners.

    I’ll be much happier when I get up to Philly in a few days, I think.

    Living in Denver this week, both my roommate and I missed our flights back to the great northwest and didn’t get to be with family over the holiday.

    It could be worse, we could be in some tent overseas, or not have family to begin with, but the weather screwed both our plans up, and I’d just like to remind the rest of you that are with family today to be thankful…

    merry christmas, all.

  23. JMB on December 25th, 2006 6:59 pm

    Today was my first day off (no work or school) since Thanksgiving. Woo!

    (See, there’s a reason I hardly post these days.)

  24. adamt on December 25th, 2006 8:25 pm

    Merry Christmas to all!

  25. gwangung on December 25th, 2006 10:15 pm

    Merry Christmas (from vacation in Arizona)! With family I haven’t seen in years.

    Yeah. Guess things COULD be worse.

  26. Tom on December 25th, 2006 10:22 pm

    #24: . . .and to all a good night!!!

  27. terrybenish on December 25th, 2006 10:31 pm

    Peace to all. I hope that if you have family serving the country,
    they are safe.

  28. Phoenician Todd on December 25th, 2006 11:42 pm

    Merry Christmas to all!! Thanks to the USSM crew for providing this forum for us.

  29. gregod on December 25th, 2006 11:42 pm

    Go Mariners!

  30. Curt_rocks_my_sox on December 26th, 2006 12:18 am

    Happy boxing day!

    Re: #27 family and friends. They are safe. May they stay so until they can come home.

  31. Otto on December 26th, 2006 12:27 am

    Merry Christmas and Happy Hollidays to all USSMariner readers.

  32. scraps on December 26th, 2006 7:57 am

    Happy holidays, everyone.

  33. Jim Thomsen on December 26th, 2006 8:32 am

    May 2007 bring a Peter White sighting. Maybe even two.

  34. msb on December 26th, 2006 8:34 am

    Jason! why, I was thinking of you just yesterday as I stared at the unfamiliar turkey tenderloins laying on the counter….

  35. msb on December 26th, 2006 11:03 am

    #20– David, did you come through the quake ok?

  36. wabbles on December 26th, 2006 11:51 am

    I would like to add my voice to the chorus thanking the authors for providing this forum all these years. Sometimes it’s been the only enjoyable thing about being a Mariners fan. Now that Christmas is over and we just have New Year’s to get through, it’s time to begin focusing on the important things again. It’s Boxing Day (day after Christmas for those of you not descended from the British Isles), which means only…49 days until pitchers and catchers report! (give or take a day or two)
