Sports and Traffic

For tourists, this page is a way to know how to avoid losing precious hours of your vacation to getting stuck in traffic. For sports nuts, this page is a way to know when to head to the bar. Here are the major sporting events for Seattle teams the weekend of the wedding.
  • College Football: The Huskies play at home against Nebraska starting at 12:30 on Saturday. The University District, home of Husky Stadium, is not equipped to handle 75,000 tailgaters at all. It is best to avoid the U-district entirely on game day to avoid running the risk of being stuck in traffic.
  • Pro Football: The Seahawks are on the road.
  • Baseball: The Mariners are at home the weekend of the wedding.
    • Friday 7:10pm
    • Saturday 6:10
    • Sunday 1:10
    Despite their terrible record, the M's are a decent draw, especially on weekends if the weather is nice.
  • Soccer: Seattle Sounders FC are on the road. Yes, they're big enough to matter; the Sounders draw 36,000 per game, compared to the Mariners' 27,000 (and a lot of those M's fans come dressed as empty seats).
