Seattle is the antithesis of Boston – when in comes to sports. While they boast in excellence and champions, Seattle sports teams have been absolutely horrible. I don’t recall being in any city with such pathetic performance and fan morale. Don’t believe me?
- [Baseball] The Seattle Mariners, who many expected to contend for the West Division title finished the season about 450 games behind the Los Angeles Angels. Absolutely pathetic. Absolutely last with a payroll of 90+million dollars. They picked up some free agents this past year that made Bobby Ayala look good.
- [Women's Basketball] The Seattle Storm with their two Olympic players[Bird and Jackson] had a mediocre season and exited in the first round of the playoffs – again. Sad.
- [College Football] The Washington Huskies football team is winless this season. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Nothing. And as much as I like Ty Willingham, he won’t be back…and actually might not make it to the end of the season. Geez, weren’t they in the Rose Bowl not that long ago?
- [NFL Football] The Seattle Seahawks got absolutely embarrassed yesterday by the New York Giants. They lost 44-6. No, that wasn’t a typo. And after 4 games, they are now 1-3. Pathetic. What’s even more pathetic is that they’ll likely end up 8-8 and win the NFC West. Super pathetic.
But, alas, there’s hope. At least the NBA is right around the corner and there’s potential with the Supersonics and Durant, Green, Collison, etc.
Oh, wait…crap….we don’t even have an NBA team anymore. Well, at least, church attendance is going to be up this winter with sports teams so pathetic here in Seattle.
Wow, we really suck.
