You know the saying, “Sticks and stones will break your bones, but words will never hurt you.” But c’mon, the “N-word” hurts! And here we are, watching this dumpster fire between Omarosa and her former boss. A “he said,” “she said,“ over what could be on tape, and a White House that can’t guarantee he didn’t say the word in a conversation years ago. Exhausted yet? This is one of the few words in the dictionary that can kill careers. […]
Earlier today, I was simultaneously fixated on two legends: Tiger Woods giving chase at the PGA Championship, and Felix Hernandez, now relegated to the Mariners bullpen, and whether he’d come into a close game against the Astros.
Tonight is a reminder about how long one month really is in the sports world. And we don’t need to look any further than the Mariners and the Sounders FC.
It used to be when we talked about things that were 3D, you’d think of that headache you get at the movies after wearing those glasses. Now, 3D printers are a big thing. Sure, they can make things like coffee cups and high heel shoes, but I’m sure many of you have heard how they can also make guns. There hasn’t been this much talk about homemade guns since this movie 25 years ago. There’s a real-life drama playing out […]
We start with the biggest dilemma the Mariners have had this side of Ichiro: What to do with Felix Hernandez? In the midst of a playoff push, their former ace has often become a total liability. And frankly, there is no good solution. To recap, Felix gave up seven runs in less than three innings last night. He’s given up at least three runs in his last five starts. The Mariners have lost six of his last eight games he’s […]
With Seahawks Training Camp a few days away, the Earl Thomas contract situation and potential holdout will continue to dominate the headlines and discussion.
Earlier this week, the PGA Tour announced a completely revamped schedule for next year. And once again, the Pacific Northwest was nowhere to be found. I mentioned it last year, but I bring it up again tonight with an interesting update. To recap: From mid-February thru mid-September, the PGA Tour’s regularly-scheduled events come west of Texas just once. There’s no Tour event in Oregon or Washington or even Utah or Colorado – even after the incredible ticket and merchandise sales […]
I went to a doctor not long ago, and he recommended some major surgery. It would have involved a lot of time off and a lot of pain pills. My first reaction was to get a second opinion. Good thing I did, because THAT second doctor recommended some medicine I never heard of, and within days, I was doing much better. I never did have that operation. The second opinion. It’s amazing how it can dramatically impact your life. Dr. OZ says only 1 in 5 of you ever gets […]
In the last year, I’ve heard the term “spoiled millionaires” way too often in regards to pro athletes. Personally, I don’t agree with calling anyone that – but tonight, I double dare you to go that route when I talk about the newest champions in Seattle. You may have never heard of the Seattle Seawolves. After all, this was their first official season. And rugby, while growing in popularity, isn’t exactly considered a mainstream sport in these parts. But you […]
Last night, the Mariners turned ahead the clock. Which was really well done. Except, for the first time in a long time, I found myself saying: “Wait a minute, DON’T turn ahead the clock! I’m actually enjoying this season!” All kidding aside, today is July 1st, which historically is the start of a month in Seattle sports that is, frankly, pretty boring. And the M’s are a huge reason that this year, it’s not. They began this month 22 games […]
