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!

Ultimate Explosion!

Man, I'm looking forward to this weekend... good football abounds...

- Can UW really take it to Notre Dame? Answer: not likely, but I do believe this will be a close matchup. Notre Dame's defense hasn't stopped anyone, and I'm looking forward to seeing if Coach Willingham lets Stanback run around a bit more. Frankly, I'm just looking forward to an actual packed house. Let it rain down!

- If you are free on Sunday morning and a heathen like myself, you sure as hell better be watching the New England-Pittsburgh matchup. That is going to be freaking insane. Look for the Patriots to play with energy, because they don't want to fall 1-2.

- Can we just say that Colin and I have been singing the praises of Lofa Tatupu way before all these loving articles started coming his way? This guy is going to be special...

- Chuck Knox is the man, and I'm a little sad I won't be there to see him inducted into the Hawks Ring of Honor. It is difficult to express the impact the man had on this team, and on every fan who has followed this team. He was the Seahawks. He was Ground Chuck. He had solid defenses, running backs, and quarterbacks. He was engaging and witty. He visited my church. After all the crap we've had to put up with afterwards (Tom Flores, Dennis Erickson) we are allowed to think very wistfully on the past. Thanks, Chuck, and congratulations.

- Can we let the "Seahawks disrepected Okeafor" stuff die? I could be wrong, but weren't we in turmoil for the first part of the postseason? For crying out loud, let it go.

- I bought a dog on Tuesday... a Basenji. Don't actually GET the dog until January, since it hasn't been conceived yet. Still, kinda cool.

- Vlad Radmanovic spurned a contract that would have paid him far too much money to sign a one-year qualifying offer. Thank you, Vlade for continuing to prove that you are, in fact, a moron.
