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!

Apple Cup '07

So... Tomorrow's game has the making of one of the worst Apple Cups ever. The facts:

1) WSU sweaters on paunchy balding men at work vastly outnumbered UW parephenalia. I don't care how it's spelled.
2) That's right. Co-workers. I have a job.

I have to say the 'Cougs have a shot at winning and thus, justifying their existence for another season. In fact, they should win this game. Despite the fact they only win 1 out of every five Apple Cups, this is that one. Not only is the game in Pullman, home of nothing, these Huskies have no bite. They'll likely have a #3 QB playing significant time with a running game that gains maybe a yard a carry. Booyah. Still, WSU managed to lose by over 30 points to a team from Arizona. These teams are playing awful football right now.

The upside? The 'Cougs also have maybe the funniest broadcasters outside of east-side (of the mountains) high-school football, which Thiel writes on well. Also, this guy is funny. I hope he writes more for the PI. This game is all about bragging rights--more of a at-least-we-don't-suck-as-bad-as-they-do cup than anything else.
