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!

One year ago a couple of tall, semi-literate brothers decided to begin yet another blog focused on Seattle sports. We vowed to remain somewhat intelligent in our commentary, but to, basically, try to encapsulate the feelings of a normal Seattle sports fan who has to deal with the Seahawks, Mariners, and Sonics on a regular basis.

What have we learned?

-- That the Seahawks are definitely our favorite team, and we love the NFL the most.

-- That there is no way that we can possibly compare with the analysis of the Mariners provided at USSMariner and Lookout Landing, who both rock.

-- That that is ok, and we will just continue to write our own garbage about the Mariners for no particular reason

-- That Tony dying on "24" on your birthday isn't the best present ever

-- That it's fun to make fun of Petey Prisco, etc., though Dad thinks otherwise

-- That sometimes you just need to recharge your blogging circuits and come back recharged

-- That writing is really, really tough sometimes, and the words don't flow, and the sentences look flawed, and there is no logical coherence to your train of thought....

-- That it's fun to realize that someone actually reads you sometimes

-- That Gavin is a stupid moron

-- That Gavin is an idiot

-- That it really isn't that fun to try and write about UW football, but hopefully that will change

Thanks for everything, readers! Here's to another year!
