Terrible fan, right here. Guilty. So guilty. I've lived in Seattle since the summer of 2000, which means I can legitimately take all the credit for the Mariners and Sonics reaching the playoffs in the same year Huskies football won the Pac-10. Be a long time until that trifecta repeats. You're welcome. Terrible fan, though: … Continue reading They’re not women’s sports. They’re sports sports.
Five rounds of the March Maddening backet are complete. Two men have won five times, have defeated every lesser villain, scrub, or disappointment in their path. Only one can be crowned the most annoying Seattle sports figure of the millennium. The runner-up will breathe a long sing of relief. For once, second place, a.k.a. first … Continue reading March Maddening: The Title Game(s) At Last
We've been calling this round of our silly tournament the #HatefulEightful, which is probably a bit harsh.

Otherwise, another day. Let's clear up three misconceptions about the bracket, which we're doing here for the first time on our little … Continue reading March Maddening: The Round of 32
The first round is complete in the Ken Behring (boo) and Jeff Smulyan (hiss) regions, and we have our first major upset of the tournament to report: Jesus Montero (13) edged Darrell Bevell (4) by a 53-47 margin. 505 votes were cast. Bevell led 51-49 in early voting but Montero inched past him for good … Continue reading March Maddening results, Day 1: Darrell Bevell loses, but wins
Not another bracket, good lord. I hear you. There are brackets for everything from Game of Thrones characters to snacks to reality show contestants to movies... You name it and it probably exists already. That's why this one needs to be better. We made it worse. That's exactly like better, in a way.
