Something to SEA: Rainy Day Clicks for 10/17/2015

Another week in the history books, gone way too quickly.  I swear when I wake up it’s Monday, then when I go to bed it’s Friday.  What happens in between is a blur.  I am making it a point to slow down and to find time every day to just sit, be, and acknowledge the present day I am in.  Today I am going to the local Chowderfest and then watching the MLB playoff games…did you realize all 4 of the remaining teams have mostly blue and white as their core colors?

Anyway, here are the week’s roundup of interesting Internet finds.  Find time to enjoy life today!

The Marlins Man:  Paying it Forward:  Article 1 is here.  Article 2 is here.  Article 3 is here.  Article 4 is here. I have noticed him over the past few years at many different MLB games behind home plate as his bright orange Florida Marlins shirt and visor stand out, and I thought he was just a fan.  His real name is Laurence Leavy, and he’s been quite noticeable during many of the MLB’s playoff games this year.  I decided to learn more about him and found out there’s so much more to his story.  Follow him on Twitter and Facebook to see what he’s up to.
