Men's Room 2000th - NFL Gameday - Soundgarden Invade Seattle

September 5, 2014

What an amazing day in Seattle yesterday! Not only was it opening day in the NFL at Century Link Field with our Defending Super Bowl Champs Seattle Seahawks vs. the Green Bay Packers, but it was our KISW's Men's Room 2000th show broadcast! In this day and age of radio broadcasting shows that's an amazing feat to achieve especially with a group of on-air personalities. Congrats to Miles, Steve The Thrill Hill, Thee Ted Smith & Ben The Psycho Muppet.

In celebration, they broadcasted live outside of Elysian Fields (home brewer of their Men's Room beer) with all their fans and all the people going to the game, the free Soundgarden/Pharrell Williams concert and all the cool NFL Gameday stuff. The guys had a blast with everyone and even had Seattle Sounders FC goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann sit in on the broadcast and meet with fans. Great dude!

At 3:20pm during the broadcast Soundgarden started their concert and that's when things got loud! Here was our view from the broadcast table (I zoomed 400mm in).

I went around the outside of the fenced area to get some big crowd shots and Stephanie was inside on the stadium side of the stage front row to get some photos.

It was Soundgarden's Kim Thayil's Birthday too! He had to be more than happy playing this show as seen in Stephanie's photo.

NFL Gameday Village was in town too so in Pioneer Square they had all kinds of cool interactive things going on for kids and adults with live ESPN broadcasts and special guests. Name these Seahawk greats below ;)

Overall a fantastic day to be a Seattleite with KISW rockin the airwaves and the Seahawks crushing the Packers 36-16 on a beautiful warm sunny day. The only complaint I had...parking lots charging more than game tickets for parking! It ranged from $60-$140 for event parking near the stadium. Are you serious? Know what i say to that...PUNT!

Go Hawks! Oh and watch for my blog Monday on my report/photos from Century Link Field for the CCFA Charity Flag Football Tournament! I'll be official photographer for some team that includes "Those Seattle Dudes" Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Duff McKagan (GnR) and Jerry Cantrell (AIC) to name a few. They'll be some KISW/Entercom folks on the field playing too so if ya wanna come out Sunday and watch you can buy tickets at Century Link at the door and children 10 and under or free! The Rock and Jock Celebrity Game starts at noon! Benefits helping tackle Crohn's and Colitis! More info HERE.
