Everybody loves the sunshine
After a marathon broadcast on Monday I decided to grab some barbeque on the way home and have a cookout with my family. We kicked it on the deck in the sunshine with the radio and tv on full blast. One on the dreadful NCAA final, the other on the M’s opener. I was first impressed with Beltre’s double in the 2nd followed by Griffey’s bouncer behind the runner and then Lopez sac fly to score the M’s first run of the year. That’s what they have been talking all spring about. Later, after we had taken our eyes off the Carolina blow out of the Spartans we focused on another Griffey a.b. and when it flew away…we cheered. Hey this isn’t the press box,we allow cheering in the house. Yes, I know it’s one of 162, it’s a marathon..yada yada. But it’s always good to see winners with Seattle on their chest.
I had a great day at Hawks camp today. Matt Hasselbeck told us he would watch the second day of the draft to see the sixth round. That’s where he was taken with the 187th pick. He said Mel Kiper told the television audience it was a waste of a pick. “The 187th pick!”… Then he laughed. Livin’ well is the best revenge. I watched Colin Cole move the blocking sled around. He is an interesting guy. He has the Predator dreadlocks going and at 6 1 330 is stout. Signed as a free agent from Greenbay where he played 54 games the last four years as a 1st and 2nd down DT. Catch our broadcast tomorrow at 3 when Clare Farnsworth our Seahawks insider joins us.
