I just got off the phone with Lt. Col. Jim McGann, the mission commander for Operation Deep Freeze. I was talking to him about a mission to drop a crucial engine part to a fishing trawler trapped below the Antarctic Circle.
I mentioned I was at Qwest Field, and he got pumped. The game apparently isn’t on TV in Christchurch, New Zealand.
"What’s the score, man?" he said. I told him the Hawks were up, 7-0, and he let out a little cheer.
