  • Commentary: Mariners throw logic, expectations out the door with torrid start to season

    Both the Mariners and Sounders are off to their best starts in franchise history. The Mariners, 9-2. The Sounders, undefeated with four wins in five matches. And while both are impressive, it also begs the question: Who are these Mariner impostors, and will they actually get away with impersonating a winning team?!?

  • Commentary: New Chambers Bay greens? It’s better late than never

    Later this week, Chambers Bay Golf Course will open to the public for the first time in six months, after renovating its greens. And I can confidently say: You won’t be disappointed.

  • Commentary: Jimmy Kimmel and Gonzaga fans form an unexpected Dream Team

    Once again, Gonzaga has reached the Sweet 16. And best of all, it forces one late night talk show host to keep the Zags in the spotlight. For an entire week, Jimmy Kimmel has continued a debate – humorous to most, offensive to some – about whether Gonzaga actually exists. “I’ve never heard the word ‘Gonzaga’ outside of college basketball,” Kimmel said last Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I don’t know where it is.
