Two things about Kitsap: our people are notably unselfconscious about going into public wearing sweatpants and pajama bottoms and we love the Seahawks.
Not sure if the two are related, but yesterday, as the Hawks prepped for the opening day game against the Green Bay Packers, which the Seahawks won handily, I got to thinking.
With so many eyeballs on the game, at home and at taverns, are we better behaved or worse behaved while the Hawks are on?
I called the good people down at CenCom, who were more than happy to indulge my curiosity, and collected the number of calls to 911, as well as the number of incidents during the game.
Then they pulled up numbers from the same time of day from a week ago, and a year ago, plus the numbers of 911 calls in the three-hour period following the game.
The result? Meh.
Without more context, it’s hard to draw strong conclusions. Weak ones? Yeah, I got some weak ones!
It looks like during the game, the amount of mayhem in Kitsap went up, relative to one week ago and one year ago. In the hours following the game, Kitsap was much more calm than during the same period a week ago, but about the same a year ago.
What does this mean? I have no idea.
Take a look for your self:
09/04/14 from 5:30 – 8:30 PM, we had a total of 95 calls and 100 events.
08/28/14 from 5:30 – 8:30 PM, we had a total of 78 calls and 94 events.
09/05/13 from 5:30 – 8:30 PM, we had a total of 56 calls and 55 events.
The three hours following a game:
09/04/14 from 8:30 – 11:59 PM, we had a total of 56 calls and 99 events.
08/28/14 from 8:30 – 11:59 PM, we had a total of 100 calls and 136 events.
09/05/13 from 8:30 – 11:59 PM, we had a total of 56 calls and 82 events.
