Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Just Frustrating

It's the middle of the 8th inning, and I have had it. This is just frustrating to watch. 10 hits = 1 run? What? How does this happen? Why does everything about this team suck? Why can't I stop watching them?

It's tough being a fan sometimes. Tonight is one of those times as we suck against the Royals. The Royals are a better team. Wow. Didn't think I would write that this season.

We are the antithesis of clutch. Where is the guy you can count on with 2 down? Where is the key hit to put us back in the game? Why do we hit so many double-play balls?

A million questions without an answer. Just frustrating.

Good luck in LA, boys. Let's win 1 while we're down there, ok?

Not only did the Mariners get more than ten hits--half of them (4 doubles and a triple) were extra base hits. We didn't even have to have two hits in a row last night! All they needed to do to score runs was get the right kind of OUTS for crying out loud.

Oh yeah, and way to go Sonics for not even pretending to respect McMillan. This is how you reward the coach of the team that beat the Kings in the playoffs DESPITE a pouting, thumb-sicking front office AFTER signing the biggest missing peice in the lineup?! GAH! This is why I don't read sports headlines in the morning... ruins my whole day.
