  • Son of ‘Throwin’ Samoan’ needs no assistance with distance

    So how far can you hit a golf ball? Probably not as far as Jack Thompson Junior, who can hit it more than 400 yards. His longest drive in competition is 418 yards. His swing speed? 152 miles an hour – close to 30 miles an hour more than the average PGA Tour Pro. “I’ve been with every World Champ there is, and I’ve never seen speed like this before,” said swing coach Paul Larson. Next week, Thompson, the son […]

  • Commentary: Watching football comes with a new responsibility re: DV and Child Abuse

    On the heels of a depressing, maddening and sickening week in the NFL, I have a shameful confession that reflects the power and popularity of the league: After the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson news broke, and after the magnitude and severity of their actions had properly set in, my next instinct was to check my fantasy football team. Because that’s what many of us – unfortunately – have now been conditioned to do. It’s a conundrum of sorts: That […]

  • Commentary: Civic pride for Seahawks shows Seattle is primed for NBA, NHL (aka “What’s Next?”)

    SEATTLE — This week served as a reminder – that there’s simply nothing better than the civic pride associated with a sports franchise. We felt it in February – and again on NFL Opening Week. People are in better moods. They’re more friendly, bonding with complete strangers thanks to two simple words: “Go Hawks.” The buzz and the atmosphere in Pioneer Square and around CenturyLink Field on Thursday were incredible, prompting even Sports Illustrated writer Peter King to tweet that […]

    Commentary: I’m preparing for Seahawks opener – by watching the Mariners

    SEATTLE — I’m preparing for the Seahawks huge season opener on Thursday night by doing something I’ve never done in the days leading up to the NFL regular season at the start of September: Watching – and caring about – the Seattle Mariners. I know the latest homestand was less than stellar, but tomorrow is September 1st, and the M’s are bonafide playoff contenders, within reach of a playoff spot. For more than a decade, this is what we’ve been […]

    Commentary: Little League Is Worth Watching – Because of Mo’ne Davis

    We start by putting our spotlight on the story of the year, in terms of national scope and influence: 13-Year-Old pitcher, Mo’ne Davis, at the Little League World Series – not just playing amongst the boys, but dominating them in Williamsport. To me – and to many – Davis would be a hero, simply by becoming the first African American girl to play in the event – and just the fourth American girl overall. But what makes it even more […]

    LISTEN: Lynnwood Pacific All-Stars to play in Little League World Series Thursday

    The Lynnwood Pacific Little League All-Stars are in Williamsport, Pa., and will be representing the Northwest region in this year’s Little League World Series. The team’s first game will be Thursday at noon against Chicago on ESPN.

  • Commentary: Here are my coaches for Seattle’s Mt. Rushmore – Who are yours?

    Lou Piniella’s special weekend gives us a perfect chance to discuss who would be on Seattle’s Mount Rushmore of coaches and managers. Despite no World Series appearances, in my opinion – Sweet Lou – is definitely on that list. Pete Carroll? Absolutely. Thanks to the first Super Bowl title in Seahawks franchise history, Carroll would be the most recent coach deserving of a place on the mountainside. He’d likely take the place of Mike Holmgren, who was a Seattle coaching […]

    What to watch for in tonight’s Seahawks vs. Broncos game

    DENVER — Well here we go. Seahawks and Broncos – again. It’s funny though, the last time they met, we were talking about entirely different circumstances, with everything on the line in East Rutherford, NJ. LIVE BLOG: Seahawks kick off preseason against Denver Broncos on Q13 FOX Fittingly, I think there are many more important things to focus on tonight – more than its billing as a “Super Bowl Rematch.” That headline is great – for the first five minutes of […]
