For the cities of Seattle and Denver, the anticipation has been gradually building over the last two weeks.

Garcia Dominant over Burgos; No KO this Time

Knockouts are the keystone of boxing. Their brutality and execution are what draws fans, yet even the biggest punchers must settle for decisions on occasion. Mikey Garcia (34-0 28KO) defended his title by outclassing formidable challenger Juan Carlos Burgos (30-2-2 20KO) over 12 rounds. Some experts thought that Burgos would try to engage and put ...

Some Rambling Thoughts on the Seahawks Being in the Super Bowl

The Seattle Seahawks are making the franchise’s second ever appearance in the Super Bowl — the first was in Super Bowl XL back in 2006. Let’s all take a moment to let that sink in, because that’s just incredible to think about. After all the crap the sport’s gods have thrown at the state of ...

NFL Conference Championship Picks

Well what do you know I actually did well in football this week.  I went 3-1 with my only loss being the delusion that Andrew Luck could beat Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at home.  Denver gets a shot at them this week, but being a Seattle fan and all I think I ...

Comparing the Offensive Production Between the Pac-12 Men’s and Women’s Basketball Teams

One of the complaints about women’s basketball in general is that there isn’t enough offense involved in games to capture the public’s interest, and keep it. After the offensive slow down in men’s basketball after the last couple of seasons, I thought it would be interesting to compare the offensive outputs of the Pac-12’s basketball ...

NFL Divisional Round

It is time for Round 2 of the NFL Playoffs!  Saints at Seahawks (11-5-0) Saints — (13-3-0) Seahawks — It is probably going to look a little different than that 34-7 blowout on Monday Night Football, but going off of logic the Saints don’t really have much of a chance here.  Drew Brees will definitely ...

According to a Report: the Cleveland Indians are Changing Their Primary Logo

By making the block “C” logo the primary logo, the Cleveland Indians have made an astute public relations move. This decision shouldn’t really surprise anyone since the Indians started to see how their fans felt about the “C” logo versus the old Chief Wahoo logo this past fall.

Major League Baseball Announces the 2014 Hall of Fame Class

After a disappointing Hall of Fame class in 2013 (as in zero elected players), the 2014 Hall of Fame class looks promising. There are several former players who are eligible for election for the first time in 2014. Thanks to these players who have just become eligible, this is the largest class in over 15 ...

Anti-Arena Groups Attempt to Gain Momentum in Seattle

Hansen and his ownership group have remained relatively quite in the last eight months and the anti-arena groups have been dominating the headlines during that time period. These anti-arena groups were drowned out during the early portion of 2013 (thanks to the Sonics/Kings saga); now they are back claiming illegal kickbacks and subsidies are involved ...
