Took a camera to a Mariners game earlier this year and Rick the Peanut man threw peanuts near us. RIP.

Rick was one of the last icons of old Seattle and really added to it’s (now very, very diminished) character. Anybody who grew up in Seattle and went to a Mariners game knew of him, and he brightened your day as a kid - even if you weren’t even buying peanuts. RIP Rick.
Agreed and I didn’t grow up here or know him like the community does. I just took the camera one day to a game and he worked that section, I noticed his charisma and took the photo.
Yeah, my first (and pretty much only) memory of a Mariners game was around 1980 against the Tigers and having him throw a behind the back bag of peanuts and thinking how absof’inlutely amazing that was! Him, Bill the beer man, Dave Niehaus, Kurt Cobain, the Ivar’s guy, etc. are likely all hanging out now talking about how Seattle was before it was trying to be LA.
