Sounders’ Depth to be Tested in Open Cup

After arguably the worst loss in franchise history, the Sounders need a bounce-back game. And a match against a lower division side in a competition Seattle has historically dominated seems like the perfect opportunity. But as last night’s upsets showed, early round Open Cup games are no walk in the park for MLS teams. With ...

Vengeance: Carl Froch beats Kessler in an Exciting Rematch

  The theme of comparing the rematch between Carl “the Cobra” Froch (31-2 22KO) and Danish-born Mikkel Kessler (46-3 35KO) to the old wars between England and the Vikings proved to be an appropriate metaphor for the battle these two fought in London. In addition to the belts, the number 2 spot (Andre Ward being ...

For the Seattle Storm, the 2012 season resulted in a 2-1 exit from the Western Conference Semifinals and a 16-18  regular season record. The season was a minor disappointment for the franchise. Despite their ninth straight playoff appearance, their first sub-.500 record since 2003 put a damper on how the season was viewed. As I ...

A Quick Update

Hello everyone!  I apologize for the “No-Show” for my HOHOHOrrible Moment of the Week column, but I was still getting my internet set up in Yellowstone.  I think for now I’m just going to do my posts on Tuesdays because it’ll be the day after Monday Night Football, and it also will be when my ...

The Case For Expansion to Seattle Is Strong

The departure of the Seattle SuperSonics in 2008 was the craptastic start to one big black hole that was the sports scene in the Emerald City; the M’s lost 101-games, the Hawks sent future Hall of Fame Coach Mike Holmgren out with a 12-loss season, the Husky football did the best thing ever by losing ...

Seattle Sounders Finally Start to Put The Ball in The Back Of The Net and Win Soccer Games

The Seattle Sounders started off slowly early on in the 2013 MLS season, very slowly (scoring only three goals in their first six MLS Matches). Their League record stood at 1-3-2 during that stretch; they also went 1-2-1 in CONCACAF play, scoring four goals during those games. In other words, it was not exactly how ...

The HOHOHOrrible Moment of the Week

That image alone should be enough to sum up how chippy this Heat-Bulls playoff series has been. The Heat have a 3-1 lead in this Eastern Conference Semifinal series, and are looking to fire the kill-shot tonight against Chicago at home.  However, that hasn’t been without some dirty play on both sides. Game 2’s 115-78 ...

Hansen Makes Two Moves on Consecutive Days; The NBA Kings Saga Gets Moar Crazy

Hansen did not agree with the Relocation Committee’s unanimous vote to deny the Kings Relocation to Sacramento. He even went as far as quoting Muhammad Ali to prove that he was not going to lay down and take the Committee’s decision. Instead he upped his valuation of the Kings $75 million (from $550 million to ...

The HOHOHOrrible Moment of the Week

Sometimes you need to be sure lightning doesn’t strike twice. Thank God for the Warriors that wasn’t the case as they won 100-91 in game two to even this Western Conference Semifinal series at one game apiece. Golden State should have a 2-0 lead in the series going into play at home, but it’s all ...
