Month: April 2014

WSU quarterback Connor Halliday was really good on 4th downs in 2013

Washington State football fans were often infuriated by the erratic play of quarterback Connor Holliday during the 2013 season — which saw the Cougs go to their first bowl game in 10 years.  The fans seemed to complain about how his interceptions killed any momentum that the Cougar offense earned, especially in the red zone ...

Donald Sterling continues to prove that he is a terrible human being, NBA team owner

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has often been accused of being a racist — thanks to sworn testimony and affidavits — but until recently, there wasn’t a whole lot of audio/visual proof of it. But on April 25th, TMZ released a audio recording that is allegedly Sterling going on a nine minute diatribe about ...

An update on the NHL expansion rumors

In February, Seattle Time’s columnist and investigative reporter Geoff Baker wrote several articles that kicked off a runaway hype train about expansion to Seattle, Washington. It’s a train that I gleefully hoped on board with several articles about what the expansion rumors meant for the SODO Arena, that expansion was coming by June, and what ...

MLB Divisional Power Rankings for April

Sports fans are weird creatures, we always look to way to prove that our favorite team is better than yours…and that the competition said team plays is tougher than that other team. One of the ways that fans can show that their team plays tougher competition is by looking at the win-loss record of the ...

NBA Playoff Post #1: 3 Days, 3 Overtime Games

The NBA Playoffs started Saturday and since then there have been three overtime games.  Interestingly enough, the visiting team has won each of those games.  The first game featured the Portland Trail Blazers upsetting the Houston Rockets on Sunday 122-120 to take a 1-0 series lead.  The second was the Memphis Grizzlies beating the Oklahoma City ...

Hopkins Adds to His Legacy

The problem with writing an analysis of a Bernard Hopkins fight these days is the repetition. He had hall-of-fame credentials before becoming the oldest man to win a lineal championship in 2011. Now he continues to win and school guys young enough to be his son. To be fair, Beibut Shumenov (14-2, 9 KO) has ...

Mariner Diaries #4: Let’s not jump ship just yet

Where did I leave off. Oh yah the Seattle Mariners started off the season 3-0 by sweeping the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.  Well sadly that’s no longer the case.  The M’s have some problems right now to say the least, losing their sixth straight game today to fall to 7-11 on the season and four ...

Here is why Mariners’ fans are overreacting to the 6-game losing streak

The Seattle Mariners started off the 2014 season hot, the team won seven of the team’s first 12 games and many people were on the band wagon ready for a playoff run. But that hot start masked the fact that the M’s were without two of their five projected starting pitchers at the beginning of the ...

Here’s this Week’s Gameplan

Hello everyone and welcome to another post by Arthur Wilson (or in other words HOHOHO or kingarthur11).  I have had some personal issues to fight through so unfortunately I haven’t posting much as of late, but all is well now. I will be posting a new Mariners Diary tomorrow at the conclusion of their series ...

The aftermath of being fleeced by Gonzaga: Three steps to recovery

Washington State University athletic director Bill Moos has become known as the savior of Cougar athletics, thanks to his hiring of Mike Leach and the facility improvements for football, but that reputation is rapidly coming under fire after the three-year contract with Gonzaga was leaked. Most Cougar fans were not happy with losing a home ...

According to a report: Gonzaga threatened to end its 107-year rivalry with Washington State

Cougfan is reporting that Gonzaga Bulldog’s men’s basketball head coach Mark Few and athletic director Mike Roth threatened to end the 107-year old rivalry with Washington State, unless the Cougs agreed to play two games in Spokane — a road game at the Kennel and a home game at Spokane Arena. According to Cougfan’s article, ...

25 years later: The Hillsborough disaster deserves to be remembered

The Hillsborough disaster occurred on April 15th, 1989 at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England during the semi-finals for the Football Association (FA) semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham. This disaster occurred shortly before the game was supposed to kick off, when a human crush in the Leppings Lane end of the stadium — the west end ...

Fantasy baseball week two: Injuries are a part of baseball life

It’s truly incredible how often people state that baseball isn’t a dangerous sport, and that you don’t have to be anywhere as tough to play the game as you do football. For crying out loud, even football players undergo “Tommy John” surgery…a surgery that was first used on San Diego Padre’s pitcher Thomas Edward John ...

Pacquiao Regains Stature with Decisive Rematch Win

  Rematches usually have one of two reasons for being made. Either the first bout was a close fight where either man could be declared the winner or a fight meant to correct a perceived mistake. The rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley fit the latter. The Filipino superstar got revenge against a largely ...

Examining what the rash of injuries in the AL West means for the division title race

The AL West is going to be one of the more interesting divisions to watch in the MLB this year, and it’s not because of the how talented all of the teams are — and they are. No, it’s mostly because of the fact that all of the teams have been decimated by injuries and ...
