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!

Memory Lane

Remeber when Husky football was a bigger deal than the Seahawks?

Remember when 8 and 8 was exciting and cause for optimism because, hey, it's better than 2 and 14?

Remember when you knew the 'Hawks were going to run on 3rd and 8 because even though we knew we were screwed for a first down, the chances we lower for a turnover.

Remember Dave Kreig soapdishing the ball?

Remember when Brian Bozworth and Rick Mier were the next big thing? (not at the same time, obviously)

Remember when Bo Jackson broke us over his knee like a bat?

Remember stifling excitment on the rare occoasions a Seahawk actually made it into the endzone with the football because you were waiting for the flag?

Remember those nasty piss troughs in the Kingdome?

Remember when Crushedoptimists only had TWO uninformed lazy jerks rambling on about the Seahawks?

Those days are gone.

You're clever. And by clever, I mean intelligent, witty, and absolutely hilarious. I also wanted to use a word you might miss hearing your students say.

"Clever" was a better choice than some of my other student's favorites, like say, "tasty" or "I feel myself..."

yes, I remember the troughs.

I know Gavin noticed that the Panthers are 0-2.
