  • Commentary: National team in Seattle provides another way to show solidarity in the wake of tragedy

    We start with our deepest sympathies to everyone affected by the tragic shootings in Orlando. And while there’s no appropriate transition to sports – every time horrific events take place, I’m reminded of the solidarity of the sports world in the aftermath of 9/11: From the Mariners and other teams across America showing their patriotism and support for the victims – to the goosebumps we all felt when then-President Bush threw a perfect strike in his ceremonial first pitch in […]

    Commentary: Muhammad Ali’s legacy is transcendent

    I’m at a loss tonight – because I simply can’t do it justice. After a weekend filled with compassionate eulogies and emotional tributes – I’m not nearly worthy of reflecting on the life of Muhammad Ali. I never met him, nor was I alive in his heyday. But that doesn’t prevent me from standing here tonight and reiterating that he was the greatest – the best of all time. That his legacy transcends sports. That he belongs as one of […]

    Commentary: Let’s go, Warriors! You’re playing for Seattle too

    We start with local model Chrissy Teigen, whose Twitter question last night received quite the responses. Asked Teigen: “Is it a stretch to root for OKC because I am from Seattle and also they’re winning?” Yes it is a stretch, Chrissy – at least, for most of us. And it’s a shame some still ask that question. Let’s get this out of the way first: The majority of Seattle fans still love Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook – we appreciate […]

    We start with news that USA Swimming has moved a pre-Olympic training camp away from Puerto Rico because of concerns over the Zika virus – a virus whose epicenter just happens to be Brazil – the host country for the Olympics.

    She’s Seattle’s next superstar, but even Breanna Stewart is surprised by the attention Breanna Stewart has been getting. “I was driving – and someone screamed my name as I’m driving,” the Seattle Storm’s No. 1 overall draft pick told Q13 News. “I was like ‘Whoa!’ That didn’t even happen at UConn.” What did happen at UConn was four national titles – much of that thanks to the three-time NCAA player of the year. Now, the WNBA’s top draft pick has […]
