Upset Alerts for the Pac-12 This Weekend

Ummm…No Butters I said chaotic, not chaos. Washington’s upset of the Stanford Cardinal last night was shocking-but-not-shocking; it was shocking because the Husky Defense contained one of the conference’s best running backs (they held Stepfan Taylor to 3.6 yards a carry) but it wasn’t shocking because of how bad Josh Nunes looked, he single handedly ...

A Quick Reaction to the Huskies Upset of #8 Stanford

That was an interesting and unexpected-expected result. The Washington Huskies knocked off the #8 Stanford Cardinals and they did it beating the Cardinals at their own game. I expected the Cardinals to continue to win ballgames by being more physical than their opponents; and it looked like the Cards were well on their way to ...

NFL Picks Week 4

Well I got above .500 last week (barely) and there still were a whole bunch of upsets.  There should be a few easy wins this week, but in the NFL you never know.  Let’s start the week’s action by looking at tonight’s game. Browns versus Ravens (0-3-0) Browns — (2-1-0) Ravens — This is one ...

College Football Picks Week 5!

Well you win some and you lose some, and a lot of match ups in college football last week changed the overall landscape.  Who would have thought that Kansas State would have gotten that big victory over Oklahoma and that Notre Dame would be a top 10 team right now.  Change is abundant as the ...

The Seattle Storm and the SODO Arena

The issue of the future of Key Arena has been raised many times though out the discussion surrounding Chris Hansen’s SODO Arena proposal. As people have continued to complain about the future of the remodeled Seattle Center Coliseum they have forgotten about the future of one of its most lucrative and loyal tenants. That tenant ...

Seahawks Late, Come From Behind, Victory Is A Plea For The Regular Officials To Return.

Monday Night’s game between the Seahawks and Packers was one of the best defensive efforts, on both sides, I’ve ever seen. The Packers offensive line struggled throughout the game to protect Aaron Rodger throughout the game as the Seahawks got 8 sacks in the first half (9 total). And the Packers Defense stepped up as ...

Packers at Seahawks on Monday Night Football; Four Things I Want To See From The Seahawks

 @ As the hours draw nearer to the Seahaws third game of the football season, I am still trying to cope with the heart breaking loss to Colorado. But let us not talk about that right now, that is a post for later.  For the Seahawks this is probably going to be the biggest test ...

Some Rambling Thoughts About Coaching Changes and High Expectations

Coaching changes are designed to bring fresh blood into a struggling team and fan base, a chance to recharge the batteries, if you will. Most of the time they do work and you see sky rocketing season ticket sales and, in the case of college athletics, a swell in the donor base. Obviously this leads ...

The Pac-12 Power Rankings After Week Four

Conference play began this week and the Pac-12 has done what it always does and that is cannibalizing itself. This year though the conference had a strong non-conference season and it includes the possible creation of a rivalry between the two bottom dwellers. Also the Pac-12 South looks to be just as messed up as ...

College Football Week 4 Picks

Well would you look at last weekend.  We had quite a few big upsets there.  Who would of thought that Stepfan Taylor would ruin USC’s bid for a national title so quickly.  Notre Dame might actually be for real too, and if they can beat Michigan the Fighting Irish should easily cement themselves in the ...

History is Almost Repeated, But Martinez Creates His Own

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1 32KO) almost repeated history Saturday night. Almost. With that in mind, Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez (50-2-2 28KO) put on a masterpiece for 11 rounds and showed the kind of will that makes a champion a champion by surviving a brutal last round knockdown and even fighting back against the bigger, younger ...

The Pac-12 Power Rankings After Week 3

The Pac-12 continued to look strong this week as two of its top three teams (according to last week’s power rankings) played each other in a fantastic display of college football; two teams of the muddled middle went into hostile environments against top notch opposition and took their games down to the final minutes; and ...

Alabama versus Arkansas (1) Alabama (2-0, 0-0 away) Arkansas (1-1, 1-1 home)Arkansas has a good home-field advantage, but the ...

What Else Could the City of Seattle do With The Bond Money That Will Go Towards The Seattle Arena?

One of the common questions regarding the Seattle Arena is; why doesn’t the City use the $200 million dollars it is going to invest in the Seattle Arena and use it for something that actually is useful? Now there are many interesting points to this question. Especially since it basically says that creating thousands of ...

Here’s Week 2

Well without further ado let’s preview Week 2’s NFL games, starting with today’s Packers/Bears match up. Bears versus Packers (1-0-0) Bears — (0-1-0) Packers — This is an interesting game.  Not only does this rivalry have a lot of history, but a lot of games have decided division titles and had playoff implications in recent ...

It’s Done! The Seattle City Council and Chris Hansen Agree on An Amended MOU

Well the Seattle Arena has survived its biggest threat, the Seattle City Council. Yesterday it leaked out that the City Council had reached an agreement with Chris Hansen on a modified MOU. For starters I can’t believe that this actually happened. There is finally an arena deal in place in the City of Seattle and ...
