Six13 - Bohemian Chanukah (a Queen adaptation)

Darn it, it's wrapping up, I hate when it comes early in the season.  We are at the 6th of 8 nights of Chanukah, so I thought that I would share this. 

Tis The Season

U-Dub Names New Coach

Early this week, the Washington Huskies named Kellen DeBoer as it's new football coach.  DeBoer had been coach at Fresno State for two seasons.

Second year head coach Jimmy Lake was fired during the season, one that the Huskies would love to forget.

Mariners Make Free Agent Splash

 Congratulations to the Mariners for the free agent signing of Robbie Ray.   Ray, the 2021 AL Cy Young Award winner is reported to have signed a deal with the M's worth 115 Million Dollars over 5 years.  

Ray had pitched this past season for the Toronto Blue Jays.    This is perhaps the most exciting move the team has made in years, although fans have seen big signings that didn't turn out as planned.  

The Mariners have not been to the playoffs since 2001.  The longest post season drought of any team in major league sports. 

Street Sweeper Ignites

The Maple Valley Fire Department was dispatched to the Belmont Woods neighborhood when a street sweeping vehicle caught on fire. No word on damage. Picture of the enflamed vehicle below.

Dunn Will Run For Congressional Seat

 Longtime County Councilman Reagan Dunn has announced his intensions to run against Democratic 8th District Congresswoman Kim Schrier.  Schrier became the first Democrat ever elected to that seat in 2018.

Dunn's mother Jennifer Dunn held the seat from 1993-through 2005.  She was succeeded by then King County Sherriff Dave Reichert, who held the position until 2019.  

Reichert will chair Dunn's campaign.

WSU Coaching Search Ends--Jake Dickert Has The Job

 After an impressive finish after being named interim coach after the dismissal of Nick Rolovich, Jake Dickert has signed to become permanent head football coach of the Washington State Cougar football team. 

The Cougs are 3-2 under Dickert as head coach including the team's first Apple Cup victory since 2012.  The Cougs also defeated Arizona and Arizona State on Dickert's watch.  One of his losses was to the Oregon Ducks who were the number 3 team in the nation at the time. 

Dickert was formerly the defensive coordinator under Rolovich. 


I found this parody yesterday on Pandora.

NEW 2019 Chanukah Song #5 (Adam Sandler original cover)

I discovered this version of The Chanukah Song too late last year.  This talented guy put up an unofficial "5th Version" of the song.  He seems to also have Adam Sandler's style down.
