The Seattle Times tells us that we have another civic duty.
Women's professional soccer is back, and the community ought to give Seattle Reign FC a big welcome in its first home game.
Which reminded me, naturally, of an old joke:
"Comes the Revolution, Comrade, we will all eat strawberries and cream!"
"But I don't like strawberries and cream."
"Comes the Revolution, Comrade, we will all eat strawberries and cream, and we will all like strawberries and cream!"
Can we adapt that to the Seattle Times editorial? Sure, here's the punch line: "Comes the Evolution, Citizen, we will all watch women's soccer, and we will all like watching women's soccer!"

(It's time to repeat an offer I've made before: If anyone at the Seattle Times wants help with their metaphors, they should feel free to email me. I mention that because I am pretty sure that the Reign FC doesn't allow random spectators to hug the players — although that would attract a certain kind of customer.)Posted by Jim Miller at May 05, 2013 07:20 AM | Email This
