Racism & the NFL: What’s a Fan to Do?

POSTED ON April 16, 2018 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 2 Comments
 

Last week, the Seattle Seahawks canceled a planned meeting with Colin Kaepernick. My understanding is that the purpose of the meeting was for Kaepernick to work out with the team and to discuss potential opportunities with the franchise. However, according to reports, Seahawks management called off the meeting when Kaepernick would not disclose his plans ... Read More

One Fan’s Letter to Richard Sherman

POSTED ON March 13, 2018 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

Dear Richard, It’s not like I didn’t know it was coming. It had been all over social media and sports radio for days. Still, when the official news broke, it hit me like a sledgehammer. I was at my desk at work and lost my breath for a moment. My gut knotted up. I was ... Read More

6 Tips for the Off-Season Blues

POSTED ON January 30, 2018 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

Technically, football season isn’t over until after the Super Bowl. But for me it came with the Seahawks’ crushing loss to the Cardinals at home on New Year’s Eve. Sure, I watched the playoffs. But the off-season blues had already started to kick in. Transitioning into the off-season is always a dreary ordeal for me, ... Read More

Seahawks and the Buddha

POSTED ON January 08, 2018 | POSTED IN: My Blog | One Comment
 

I’ve spent the past week or so shuffling around aimlessly, discombobulated and adrift since the Seahawks’ season ending lost to the Arizona Cardinals on New Year’s Eve. My beloved and mighty Seahawks did not make the playoffs this year. The last time they missed the playoffs was 2011. It’s a hard truth to square with. ... Read More

Old Year, New Year

POSTED ON December 31, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | One Comment
 

  2017 was some kind of lunatic 52 card pickup. Everything we thought we knew– about democracy, truth, reason, integrity and fundamental human decency–was thrown up in the air and split wide open for reexamination. At the epicenter of all of it is the orange-tinged man presently occupying the White House and the band of ... Read More

Seahawks: The Bumpy Road of Believing

POSTED ON December 14, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

Last Sunday afternoon, I did the unthinkable: I turned off the Seahawks game. They were playing the Jaguars, and it was close to the end of the third quarter.  I couldn’t take it anymore. It wasn’t a matter of turning it off in anger and disgust at the way they were playing. It was an ... Read More

Richard Sherman, down but not broken

POSTED ON November 13, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

Last week, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was injured in an ugly Thursday Night Football game against the Arizona Cardinals. My friend Nate and I watched the game at a little sports bar in West Seattle and saw the play and the injury. The visual of my hero crumpled on the field was upsetting. A ... Read More

My Kind of Patriotism

POSTED ON August 16, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | One Comment
 

I don’t have to tell you that it’s ugly out there. We’re engaged in a dark battle over what this country is and what it will be. While this conflict is rooted deeply in our history, it was harshly exacerbated during the 2016 presidential election and continues to rage. What started in social media threads ... Read More

Seahawk football- 5 things this season

POSTED ON August 08, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

We’re just days away from Seahawks football…mere days. And although it’s only preseason fare, any football is better than no football. Am I excited? Well, as my father used to say, “Is a hog’s hip pork?” I’ve survived the long ordeal of the off-season, enduring week after week of slow dreary Sundays. I’m ready. I’m ... Read More

The Incentive of Eddie Lacy

POSTED ON June 12, 2017 | POSTED IN: My Blog | One Comment
 

Let me begin by saying that I like running back Eddie Lacy and I’m glad that he’s come on board with the Seahawks. To the uninitiated, Eddie is a former Green Bay Packer. He played four seasons with the team, going to the Pro Bowl his rookie year. He was also named the 2013 Rookie ... Read More
