Props to Gary Washburn for bringing it today in a lunchpail. Earl is questionable for tomorrow ( I'll bet he plays) , Sene's short stint in the NBDL may be coming to an end, and the day of reckoning for Andre Brown is at hand.
"I think if you look at the small picture, people want to say 'No,'" Watts said. "But if you look at the big picture, all pro sports are good for this city. They're good for the kids and they're good for our way of life. We've got to find a way to make it happen."
Watts noted the adversity the Seahawks faced in 1996 when former owner Ken Behring wanted to break the team's lease with King County and move it to Los Angeles. Watts also talked of what the city might have been like had former Mariners owner Jeff Smulyan moved the baseball team to Tampa, Fla. in 1991.
"Look at what the Seahawks and Mariners have done for this town since then," said Watts, who thinks the Sonics may move to Bellevue or Renton but won't move out of state. "People are going to have to look to the (state) Legislature to make it happen."
Hey, anyone else remember those bumper stickers you used to see about ten years ago that said "Go Seahawks -- And Take the Mariners With You!" How retarded do those people look now?
"We don't have the bodies to be losing anybody right now," Hill said.
It's part of an overall desire I see from the local megabusiness community to get improvements and make this city and region more business friendly ... basically Seattle's been stuck with their heads in the sand for too long. Boeing said the same thing for years ... the city need improvements in infrastructure, transportation incentives, airports, the whole nine yards to be a competitive place for them to do business. It's the 21st century but Seattle in many ways is stuck in the 1950s and 60s because they didn't buck up and do things right back in the day. Can this city have mass transit, new arenas, better roads and schools? Of course it can, many other cities manage to have all these things. Puget Sound is just behind the 8-ball because they've put off so many needed things for so long that the proverbial bill has come due on a lot of things simultaneously.
Enough of that, moving on ...
How many coaches is this for KG? How many is this for Ricky Davis? Unfortunate.
In the same article Rashard should either get clearance today or not to begin exercising his injured hand. I don't know if any of you saw his interview during the Denver broadcast but the knuckle still looked swollen as hell to me.
