2. Donating blood.
American Red Cross needs your blood.
In exchange, you’ll be treated to cookies and juice. Not a bad trade, right?
Marysville Public Library is hosting a blood drive from noon to 5 p.m. Nov. 20, at the library, 6120 Grove St., Marysville. By donating, you can save up to three lives.
Schedule an appointment by entering “Marysville” under the “Find a drive” tab at www.redcrossblood.org, or by calling 800-733-2767.
3. Watching golf.
After years of dominance by the Seattle Seahawks — and clutch victories like the one they just pulled off on Monday Night Football — you’d think Washingtonians would love their football.
The Evergreen State’s most-watched sport is golf, according to data from DirecTV. Football still won in a landslide in most other states — 35 to be exact — but golf came in second with 13 states.
Kentucky, home to the most successful NCAA Division I basketball program in history, watches basketball more than any other state. Vermont and Connecticut are also mega fans of baseball.
