The three most important players for the Seattle Seahawks Sunday in their lopsided win over rival San Francisco 49ers were Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett and Thomas Rawls, three offensive players aged 26, 23 and 22, respectively.
Forgive me if I’m already thinking of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith and the Dallas Cowboys dynasty in the '90s, but maybe, just maybe, there is something brewing here for the long term. Maybe the Hawks' winning window isn't shutting.
Many in Seattle have never heard of TBTL. It’s a podcast whose full title is Too Beautiful To Live and whose origins began in 2007 on KIRO radio here in town. It was a short-lived quirky radio show that, when cancelled, turned into a long-running quirky podcast. And despite the fact many have never listened to it, it’s got quite a following, netting some 1 million downloads per month.
I was on my way to check out two new additions to the University Village earlier this month: Amazon’s new brick and mortar store, Amazon Books, and Evergreens, a sleek Seattle salad spot with two other locations downtown.

I love the sky. Living in Seattle often gets me down, because the large, compressed buildings—and the incessant gray blanket cloaking the sun—impede my ability to fully see and appreciate nature’s ultimate canvas.
However, this was not the case during last weekend’s storm. Patches in the stormy sky occasionally gave way to distorted, beautiful sunlight, and the violent winds made the waters surrounding our city twist and warp, creating an image almost as enjoyable as the one overhead.
Big news for fans of the historic Eitel Building at Pike Street and Second Avenue downtown: The long-vacant, seven-story tower has been purchased for $5.35 million by local urban real estate firm Lake Union Partners. The 45,000-square-foot building, built in 1904, fell into disrepair after most tenants (with the exception of ground-floor retail including the dubious teriyaki joint) vacated in the 1970s.
Devastating storm continues to affect Washingtonians. We experienced clear skies and sunshine yesterday, but many throughout the state are still recuperating from this weekend's severe windstorm that caused power outages for more than 300,000 Washington residents, major river flooding, mudslides and road closures. However, far more tragic were the three deaths that resulted from the storm.

On the cusp of turning 30, emerging local composer Angelique Poteat has already had work commissioned and performed by the Seattle Symphony. And this month she presents the world premiere of Listen to the Girls, a new choral piece she wrote to convey the issues young women struggle with every day. Poteat spoke with Brangien Davis, former arts and culture editor at Seattle magazine, about how the piece came about.

The city is changing, affordability is worse than ever, and longtime communities are “hollowing out,” as Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant has described a Central District that is no longer an African-American enclave. And then there’s Ballard, where you can’t buy “fresh” lutefisk anymore.
Entering Sunday’s Seahawks game there were a lot of questions surrounding the team. After the game, we had our answers. Sort of. For a contest that had more ups and downs than a Six Flags coaster, more heartache than a hospital ward and more tweets per minute than a bird cage, we were left with a lot to talk about.
