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!

Crushed Futbol: Introduction Time!

As the World Cup draws near, it's time for the Crushed Optimists to rack up our soccer coverage. Although I consider myself a decent soccer fan, willing to get up at 3 am to watch every US match four years ago, I'm nothing next to former roommate Jeff Sawatzky. Jeff, beyond playing soccer every chance he gets, is a rabid Arsenal fan and has bloodlines I lack (cousin Darren Sawatzky was a former star of the Seattle Sounders). Therefore we thought it a good time for a different perspective, likely one far less bitter and cynical.

Jeff will be joining the crew during this fun run, dispensing his tidbits of wisdom on why the US can actually make it to the second round through the murderer's row of Italy, Czech Republic and Ghana.

So welcome Jeff!
