CREEPY KIDS & HAUNTED HOUSES! SO FRESH!
What Movie Scene Gets You Ready to Play Ball?

UMMM…

Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog, being the intrepid reporter he is, asked Redskins coach Jim Zorn — pictured here with Steve Largent during their Seahawks playing days — about his coyote-skinning experience.  Because, well, why not, right?  Zorn’s quote:

“Ok, this absolutely was appalling to my bride of 29 years, but I actually found road kill. I didn’t hunt the coyote, I found road-kill coyote, put it in a bag, shoved it in my trunk. I thought, ‘A coyote pelt, this is awesome!’

“So I took it outside–I didn’t bring it in the house obviously–I took it outside, I hung it on a tree right on the waterfront, you know. Beautiful waterfront house, I hung it right on the tree, and I skinned it. Um, and it looked like, I’ll tell you what, it looked like a yard dog. So it was a little bit scary, because people were thinking I was skinning my own dog. But it was a coyote.

“So I skinned it out, I put it in a bag and I sent it to a tannery, right? And I got the hide tanned and brought back and I had this really nice coyote pelt, all right? And it was on a couch on our house for a long time, until our kids got to it and you know, they started pulling the tail and all that kind of stuff.”

This is why I want to move to Seattle and do a similar blog for Seattle.  I want to ask Mike Holmgren about the critical smelt shortage in the Pacific Northwest.
