Mariners, Seattle, West Coast discussed on The Jim Rome Show


Our region. If you're wondering why Hawke and I had that extended conversation about that. Maybe you've turned on the news. In the past two weeks. You've seen that the West Coast is on fire. I wish that was hyperbole. But really, it's not right now. There are over 50 fires burning from San Diego to Seattle. And obviously it's terrifying. It's putting people in immediate danger. People are losing their homes and Mohr It's also doing some long term damage because of the terrible air quality that many of us on the left coast are experiencing right now. Don't be a hypocrite, and I really want to go out and get a run in or a hike in the man. The air is terrible, and I don't mean that normal Los Angeles smog basin that we're talking about. I'm talking about some of the worst air quality ever like you look outside. And you see a grey sky, You see? Ah, blood. Orin son. It looks like a star Wars moon. You know it's bad. Or you go online. And thanks to the few eye technology, you could just see how bad it is, is short for air quality index. It lets you know how bad an unhealthy and how toxic the air is that he'd given moment.

It's about the Mariners and the Athletics. Playing yesterday in Seattle. Remember those numbers? I ran down the eye yesterday was 2 34. And I double back to that shard. Why don't we see what 2 34 means? 0 to 50 Good 1 66 Ryan is unhealthy for everybody. Oh, here we go, 2 34. 2 34. Extremely unhealthy for everybody. What the hell to 34. Let's play baseball.
