Lockedout Landing S1 E1: Settling the Score

This is a “thing” for now.

MLB: Winter Meetings
When you get that “just this once” discount.
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Hello. Last week, we ran a pilot on LL for Lockedout Landing. The idea was what I would do and talk about in the event that there was a work stoppage in MLB. As a result, the pilot has been picked up for series. It turns out I have a lot of things to talk about that are not related to the Seattle Mariners or Major League Baseball. Please don’t mistake that prior statement into thinking that I am calling myself a well-rounded person by any means. Nevertheless, we ride for another week. 20 and 80, this is Lockedout Landing.

Shameless Plug-

I will be appearing at the Renton, WA Safeway this evening to pick up some groceries that I forgot on my most recent grocery run. I will have a sharpie ready, but you will need to prove you have already paid for the item I will be signing. Don’t make this harder for other people than it already needs to be.

WATCHSAW

Hi. I know last week I promised I was going to watch Golden Gilmore Girls’ new season on Netflix, but time got away from me. I will do this because I am generally a man of my word (don’t @ me) and I NEED to know what all the fuss is about.

I have a lowkey problem with Netflix shows that blow up overnight. I had this issue with Stranger Things. It was a real hit, but I didn’t watch it. The reason I didn’t was that I knew that by the time I was finished, everybody would be talking about the biggest show on television, and I wouldn’t have anyone to talk to me about that kid that eats waffles.

AUDIOSAW

I was going to write something about blink-182 here. But according to my Apple Watch (gotta get those steps) it’s 38 degrees and December. The holidays are upon us, and I would like to take this opportunity to let you all know that I am adequately prepared fist fight anybody that doesn’t believe that the following is the finest Christmas song every crafted-

MARINERSHOTTAKESAW

Nobody in MLB covets anyone in the bullpen not named Edwin Diaz. That said, if we can get a legit piece for him, call me Frasier Crane.

OTHER THINGS

  • Shout to Jose Rivera. He does thankless work on not only our rink-a-dink operation but for the Footbaw Boys (whatup, Mike Bar) and the Xbox Team. The work he does is truly unreal. If you’re a Seattle sports fan and you don’t follow him on Twitter, you are doing yourself a disservice and I am not here to talk about your self-destructive tendencies.
  • The light rail is out of control. It’s standing room only during peak hours. I’ve been commuting like this for over a year now, so I have squatters rights on that seat, Darlene.
  • Somebody talk me out of seeing Rooney on Sunday night.
  • People look at me like I have two heads when I tell them that I can’t stand the snow.

Anyway, that’s it for this week. As always, any questions, concerns or even if you just want to slide into my DMs to say “hi ;-)” I can be found on Twitter @EthanNovak
