In Honor of Les (the Radish)
Sun Sep 14, 2014 6:01 am
  • Some may find this strange, I admit it kinda is.
    I've been racking my brain trying to come up with something I could do to honor Les today, GameDay.
    This is what I came up with....
    Image

    Obviously he won't be in it but Les has a seat at today's Game vs the Chargers.
    For those of you at the game, maybe you could go by the seat and leave a bag of peanuts or a coke.
    Section V18 row9 seat12.
    Again I know this is kinda strange but it's what came to me and I did it.
    I'll put this info in a couple other places so it hopefully won't be missed.

  • Thanks for this, Lon.

    You and Stache have done a very cool thing here.

    I think the first one that gets to that seat might chat with the guests adjacent to it and let them know that somebody very special is sitting there today. Maybe offer them a nice refreshment to assist us in honoring our fallen comrade?

  • Thanks for the props guys but this ain't about me. It's about Honoring one of our own.
    Yea I know I didn't need to post it, bla bla.
    But seriously,I regret not doing something for him while he was still with us. And it reminds me that too often we don't do things we wish we had.
    Please take this time to tell somebody what they mean to you. Hug a loved one an extra time today. Help that old lady get across the road.
    Remember that we have no promise of tomorrow.

  • I think the majority of 12's that you'll see at the game won't know about this. Please, tell everyone you see to lay down a pack of Skittles for the Radish.

    They are closed today :?

    Also, I hate to put everything back on medic, but they will probably want to contact him regardless to faciliate the transfer. Maybe we contact the number at 619 614 5151 that's on the ticket? That's for the stadium, not sure how that would play out though.

  • This just reinforces two things that I always knew

    1) .NET is more than a message board. It's a community and a family

    2) Les and his heart have touched many many people probably more than he ever knew

  • This hurts me, even though I never knew him in person but we spoke about a lot of stuff personally. I have a lot of PMs between him and myself. Yesterday it was hard to celebrate my birthday when it also shares the passing of a beloved .net member. Almost surreal to think a day of life is one also now of passing.







    Of course it means I'll have to double up my drinks on my birthday's here on out for Les :les:

    I hope by end of game that seat is filled with tokens of kindness from both Seahawks and Chargers fans.

  • I just checked my eMail and found a msg from Darlene (Mrs.Norton)
    She is having trouble logging onto .Net.
    She just wanted to see what we were saying.
    The email probably went to Les's entire address book.
    Please if you can help her log on, do so.
    I think she would be Honored at the outpouring of emotion here.

    Please help her if you can.
    I'm guessing she needs a password or something.

    Not only that, but some of us went with actual "Pithy" Radishes.

    :les:

    Did anyone visit, sit in, decorate, or otherwise check-in on Les' seat during the game?
