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!

The Name of the Blog Remains

Colin and I are still on hiatus, but here are some articles that sum up at least my feelings pretty well.

John Clayton: Manuel's Injury Grounded Seahawks

Michael Smith: Officiating was less than Super

Bill Simmons: An XL Sized Diary

Kevin Hench: Refs Were Far From Super in this One

Art Thiel: For Heartbroken Hawks, it's 'as bad as it gets'

Seattle Times: What Others Are Saying

Larry Stone: Seahawks Miss the Points

Blaine Newnham: Hawks Perplex ABC's Madden, Michaels too

Jason Whitlock: Throw a Flag on the Officials

Greg Johns: Hawks Can Blame Only Themselves (and the refs, of course)

Tom Hoffarth: Replays Provide Only Satisfaction

More to come in the days ahead. Preliminary thought? Not a great game by any stretch of the imagination by anyone on the field.


Football Outsiders: Wow. Bad Refs.

Bob George: Give Super Bowl MVP to Officials

Alan Pergemet: Madden, Michaels Adjust in Second Half

Robert Weintraub (Slate): Steal-ers

Jim Reeves: Officials....

Buck Harvey: Men of Steel

Michael Wilbon: On the Big Stage, This One is Nothing to Sing About

Pro Football Talk

Skip Bayless (WHAT!!): Steeling One: Hawks Get Robbed

These Aren't Seahawks Fans Complaining: SportsNation thread at

Interesting.... (added by Colin)
