Dribbling and Cogitating

Purely for the sake of cognitive dissonance, I’ll be spending some time at Seattle Center this weekend. . attending two events that are probably as dissimilar as any two nearby events could be without triggering some kind of black hole.

Saturday is the Seattle GameCon, which actually happens every quarter (though this’ll be my first). Non-geeks are probably unaware that Seattle is a hub of the tabletop gaming scene. Local game companies include the bigtime Wizards of the Coast and WizKids along with a horde of smaller companies, like Uberplay, Cranium Inc, Cheapass Games, online retailer Cardhaus, and many others I’m rudely forgetting. So if you’re into staying up really late moving little plastic pieces around on cardboard, there’ll be something for you.

On Sunday, Key Arena will be hosting Game 2 of the WNBA finals, wherein the greatest female basketball player on the planet, Lauren Jackson, will team up with the 2nd greatest female basketball player on the planet, Sue Bird, to lead the upstart Seattle Storm against those other upstarts from Connecticut. And who can say no to pro basketball finals tickets for under $20?

The number of people interested in both of these events could be comfortably counted on one hand, but for we happy few, it’s a hot weekend.
