I happened upon a mob of more than ten men and women from the Navy's Blue Angels team who were pouring out of their downtown accommodations late Sunday afternoon after three days of jet air shows above Lake Washington during Seafair. At first I thought they were all paramedics leaving some sort of training session, and by the time I was close enough to read their insignia, most had passed me. These four were the last out the door and were headed up the street, presumably to their transportation out of town. None of the four were pilots during the show, as their patches indicate supporting roles. Still, people ran up to them about a 1/2 block from here and I watched them kindly drop their duffles and pose arms behind back for pictures with people on the street.
