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!

Thierry Henry - Muchas Gracias!!

Henry renewed his contract with Arsenal this week, adding 4 more years with the club in which he's spend the past 7. His announcement came a day after losing such a difficult game, yet his response is what I feel solidifies him as one of the best athlete examples we currently have. Look at how he weighed his options, look at his priorities (MLB/NFL/NBA take note please) in the glowing story linked here. As an Arsenal fan as well as a fan of world soccer I am filled with such optimism for the future of that club as well as others who hopefully will follow in Henry's wise stead. This is what makes the world's game spectacular and why I'm proud of the storied franchise that is Arsenal of North London.
Many thanks, Thierry, for staying with the Gunners and providing for a bright future as you move into a fantastic new stadium.
