Rick The Peanut Guy, a staple at Seattle sporting events since 1977, died today. Rick has kept thousands of fans entertained for decades, throwing behind-the-back peanut passes around the Kingdome and Safeco Field. Even though I have a life threatening allergy to peanuts, I loved seeing this guy. I once saw him throw one behind his back to the next level up, then walk up there to get the money later in the inning. RIP Rick, you’re a legend and will definitely be missed.
