    Commentary: Remove the interim tag, Sounders FC – Brian Schmetzer is your man

    Before we reach November, let me start tonight by giving my official endorsement: Regardless of today’s disappointing loss, Brian Schmetzer has earned the head coaching job for the Sounders FC. He’s shown more than enough in the last few months to have the interim tag taken away. Flashback to the end of July, when the team mutually parted ways with Sigi Schmid. The Sounders were in second-to-last place. When Garth Lagerwey addressed the media, a lot of fans scoffed when […]

    There’s a perfectly charming reason Pete Carroll plays catch before every Seahawks game

    SEATTLE – Ever wondered why Pete Carroll plays catch on the field before every Seattle Seahawks game? During his weekly exclusive interview with Q13 FOX’s Aaron Levine, the Seahawks’ coach explained how that ritual got started, as well as why he’s so excited about Germain Ifedi, why he loves the South Beach diet, and what the team will need to do if it’s windy during Sunday’s game. Seattle’s game against the Atlanta Falcons kicks off at 1:25 p.m. on the home of the […]

    Commentary: It’s early, but Huskies and Cougs on collision course for epic Apple Cup

    Seriously, can we play Apple Cup tomorrow? I mean, this has potential to be an epic rivalry game in Pullman…if the Huskies and Cougs can stay the course. That’s a lot easier said than done – but a look at their schedules seems to suggest we just might be on a collision course for a battle for supremacy in the PAC-12 North the day after Thanksgiving. Even if either team loses a game between now and then, Apple Cup would […]

    Pete Carroll talks Jimmy Graham, coaching strategy, and the rest of the season

    SEATTLE – The Seattle Seahawks’ bye week sure seemed early when the NFL first released it’s schedule, but all the sudden, it’s looking like a gift from above. During his weekly exclusive interview with Q13 FOX’s Aaron Levine, coach Pete Carroll talked about the fortuitous bye week, his strategy for dealing with players who are in a funk, and Jimmy Graham’s invitation to fly in a plane piloted by Graham. The Seahawks will be back in action Oct. 16 against […]

    Commentary: Whether or not fans approve, athlete activism is a staple of the sports world

    On the heels of a surprising, divisive and polarizing move by Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the National Anthem and today’s confirmation that he will continue to do so, it’s important to realize that controversial political statements – and athletes’ opinions on social issues – are becoming more common. And whether you like it or not, they’re here to stay. To me, it’s an incredibly interesting dynamic: Sports – primarily considered by many a form of entertainment and a […]

    Commentary: After win over Stanford, it’s full speed ahead for emerging Huskies

    We can’t ignore the biggest story of the weekend: The Husky football team, now ranked 5th in the country – and the only undefeated team in the Pac-12. Did they win a national title? No. Did they win a conference title? Not yet. But what the Dawgs showed the nation on Friday night is something we haven’t seen on Montlake in at least 15 years: Dominance. Overwhelming confidence. And a team that finally puts fear into their opponents when they […]

    Marshall’s first-half goal enough, Sounders beat Fire 1-0 to move into MLS playoff picture

    SEATTLE (AP) — Chad Marshall headed in a corner kick in the 24th minute, and the Seattle Sounders beat the Chicago Fire 1-0 on Wednesday night to get back into the MLS playoff picture. The Sounders (12-13-5) have 41 points and climbed into a tie with idle Portland for the sixth and final playoff berth in the Western Conference. Seattle still has one game at hand on the defending champion Timbers, and also has one more win. Total wins is […]

    Commentary: It’s gut check time for Huskies against Stanford, Oregon

    We start tonight with the “Revenge Tour.” Because that’s what it is for the Husky football team: From the Arizona desert last night to Seattle this Friday night and ending in Eugene, Oregon one week from Saturday. And even though last night was an undercard to the main events ahead, it was still big. The Dawgs hadn’t won a game in Tucson in ten years; so regardless of expectations, they needed that result. They needed to exorcise whatever demons stood […]

    Commentary: Another huge series, Mariners – please, don’t let us down

    While I can’t speak for everyone – I cannot express this sentiment more clearly to the M’s: Please. Sweep the Blue Jays the next three nights. From the bottom of our ill-fated, bruised, beaten and broken baseball hearts: Once, just once! – do us a solid and win three games at home in front of your fans when it counts the most. I don’t need to tell you that the start of this weekend was a disaster, salvaged by a […]
