Baker Pays a Visit to the Pacific Northwest
Once upon a time, Seattle was the city to move to. Seinfeld even made a joke about it. Then, it was Portland. The entire show Portlandia was basically built on that. What do those cities have in common? Not having NBA teams, that’s for sure (Sorry, Sonics fans). They are both in the Pacific Northwest. Also, they were both visited while Baker’s team was traveling the region in this video.
The video, simply titled Pacific Northwest 20, features skaters like Tyson Peterson, Zach Allen, Pedro Delfino, and Tristan Funkhouser. Naturally, they hit up Burnside in Portland, a skate spot anybody who has played Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater knows well. Seattle gets plenty of love as well. Grunge may not be in the zeitgeist anymore. Frasier has been off the air for over a decade. The Emerald City could use a little love. Luckily, Baker came around to give it to them. Watch Baker’s trip through the Pacific Northwest above. The dream of the ‘90s is alive indeed.
