Those seem like good true-or-false questions for a real-or-not minor league baseball team quiz.
Go Palps!

Seattle Squeeze would be a good name for a Sterno drinking horse.

I'm more of a Tacoma Aroma fan myself.

Also, I'm glad I no longer work in Seattle.  I think Transportation Tears may be more appropriate than Seattle Squeeze.

Good thing we ruined 2nd for the bike lanes!

The long-planned change is the second phase of the "Seattle Squeeze," which will allow for the construction of the new $1.7 million Washington State Convention Center expansion.

Is it in a trailer or something?

Olympia Ogle is free, but a Seattle Squeeze will cost ya...

why oh why did my company remain in West Seattle and not relocate to Pioneer square so I can just walk to work.

I thought a 'Seattle Squeeze' was the BM after a Red Lobster feeding?

Once the Google offices are up and running in SLU, things well get much better. No, wait...what's the opposite of that?

I lived through the horror of commuting to school via metro bus when Third ave was torn to shiat to build that tunnel. Buck up, Buttercups. You'll get over it.

Maybe it's time for the French Exit? The Irish Goodbye?  The Turkish Takeoff?  The Tokyo Syonara?

Summoner101: Because traffic in Seattle wasn't already terrible.



I am DAMN GLAD we finally have a commercial airport at Paine Field.  (I'm in North Lynnwood.)

I few to Vegas from there earlier this month, and it was just dandy.  $12.50 Lyft ride from my house, and check-in and TSA took very little time....I might be the quickest experience I've had at an airport after 9/11.

In fact, in the immediate security area, there were more TSA agents than passengers.....YRLY.  They were getting us through at a very fast pace.

Not having to go through Seattle or Bellevue traffic:  Priceless!
 
2019-03-25 04:19:02 PM  
I didn't understand the reason for the change. Does the construction work change the route plan? Do they want busses on the streets to support convention center riders?
 
2019-03-25 04:23:25 PM  
It's been fifty years since we were first warned about Seattle crosstown traffic.

"Seattle Squeeze" is the name of my grunge rock Chris Difford/Glenn Tillbrook tribute project.

Wait, I thought French was oral, and Greek was anal.  I bet you were being facetious, or maybe ironic. Or coincidental.  I'm not ever sure what I was talking about at this point.

It wouldn't hurt if Seattle opened up another bus-only street. Or two, each being one way streets.

Everyday commutes in Los Angeles require the LA Lobotomy.

Great, more people that pretend to not hear you yelling "this is my stop, please let me through!" for three blocks leading up to it.

Also: Never seen a place more opposed to upward mobility. Add in "Well, I already know all the people I ever want to know, forever, so... kindly fark yourself" culture, which is sadly bereft of the arts culture that I grew up reading about...

"Please remember to tap on and tap off.."

One of weather reporters in Los Angeles is named "Dallas Raines" (no, really).  I always imagine his name is really "Pittsburgh Precipitation".
 
2019-03-25 04:57:33 PM  
Shouldn't it be the Albuquerque left turn?
What's updoc?

When #1 son worked in Seattle, his job was on one side of the lake and his apartment on the other. His commute was often well over an hour. One road to rule them all and in the darkness bind them.

Do you call your second born male child the #2 son?  How Rude!

There is no second born male child. It's just a drollery.

There's plenty of Phoenix Pharkwittery afoot. I have been known to do some I-10 Eyerolling every afternoon when the Broadway Curve is hopelessly jammed.

20 years ago, my mother loved working in D.C., because she could walk about half a mile to the Ballston station and ride the Metro to almost every job site. The Beltway was a total poop festival then and must be even worse now.

Get up in the morning like the rest of us
Places to go, important people to meet
Better not get up or you might lose your seat.
