There's lots of goodies here, but definitely SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST for a MUST SEE movie of Zorn during his years as the Seahawks QB...you gotta love a lefty with a Dutch Boy haircut throwing the pigskin.
You even get commentary from Snoop Dog and can evaluate Zorn's singing abilities in a milk commercial!
Have a zany, Zorny day!

He's a childhood hero admired by a bunch of us who grew up together in Seattle in the late 70s, when he was the Hawks QB...and threw passes to FG kicker Effren Herrera in trick plays such as the one in 1979 against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football...and then a few years later in another pass he overthrew the receiver and it went through the uprights...and then to everyone's horror he conducted -- with blissful and clueless passion -- the Seattle Symphony.
How can you not like a guy like that? We absolutely love this guy. We even attempted just over 10 years ago, in the infancy of the internet, to form a movement to have his #10 retired by the Seahawks. Who knows, if he comes back to Seattle to be a head coach, that might tip the scales and warrant a new review of that possibility.
For now, however, the first head coach stop is in the "other" Washington. We wish him luck!
I'll keep this post up-to-date with the latest on how he's doing there...and I'll try to update this post weekly with the results from each game as the season progresses. I might even throw in a little Zorn trivia.
Look for the link in the margin to reach this post. You gotta love a lefty QB who's name begins with a "Z." S
