Alumni Dawg Pack Dirt: Seattle University

suPoor Seattle U.

Unwittingly, the lowly Redhawks are about to be victimized by Dawg Pack Alumni Night, one of the few games on the schedule where aging UW alums who once jumped and screamed rowdily in the student section return to yell at an opponent most fans couldn’t care less about.

In honor of the occasion, I’ve decided to compile a special edition of Dawg Pack Dirt, the guerrilla gameday info sheet that long ago made its rounds before every contest.

Below is everything you need to root against the loosely-hated Redhawks (in a good-natured fashion, of course), and be sure to don an old Dawg Pack t-shirt on Tuesday night to receive $10 admission into the alumni student section.

Go Dawgs!

The game:

-Seattle Redhawks (5-6) at Washington Huskies (7-3)

-Washington Basketball Competition Facility at Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion

-Tuesday, December 22, 2015, 8:00 p.m. PT

The team:

-Seattle, a member of the vaunted Western Athletic Conference, is currently 5-6 on the season, headlined by a 66-52 signature loss to California.

Karate Emergency Ep. 2.14: The Force Awakens

starwars

It’s Star Wars week, and once you get past the first five minutes of Slickhawk nerding out to his favorite movie series, you’ll find we discuss things you might actually care about.

The Seahawks have a tailback conundrum so severe that Christine Michael is back. And to make matters more interesting, Ray Rice rumors even popped up for a day or two, leading us to debate whether Rice deserves another shot at the NFL or not.

The story of the Great Basketball Ban is fully revealed, Alex is involved in a Twitter scandal, and Kelly has some terrible news for all the meerkats.

May the force be with you.

Karate Emergency Ep. 2.13: Women in Sports

womentennis

Oh, hey, a borderline insane, entirely sexist article about women faking an interest in sports was published in Seattle Weekly this week, so we discuss it on today’s episode.

But wait, there’s more.

The Mariners continue to make headlines with a flurry of moves, the Seahawks are suddenly fielding a capable offense, and UW basketball is stomping lesser opponents thanks to one of the least heralded, yet most accomplished Huskies of all-time.

All of that, plus a segment in which Kelly goes on a rant about undergarments and freely offers up her own wardrobe preferences. Enjoy it, meerkats.

Karate Emergency Ep. 2.12: You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out

Slickhawk returns after a few days spent with a murderer, and the crew has lots to discuss.

The Huskies put a whooping on the Cougars in the Apple Cup, the Seahawks have more questions than answers in the wake of a critical injury, and Jerry Dipoto is out to save the Mariners by dealing everyone he comes in contact with.

On top of that, Kelly has a new meerkat, this one more famous than his constituents, and Alex got shot in the face.

Happy listening!

Karate Emergency Ep. 2.11: Slick’s Dating A Serial Killer

1656_3409090_ver1.0_640_480

Sans the dramatic intro music, the gang is back to discuss the Apple Cup, Husky Basketball, Russell Wilson’s personality problems, and the standard dose of grumpiness.

Amidst it all, we reveal that Slick may be dating a serial killer and we welcome in a special guest to help us break down the Husky/Cougar rivalry.

 

Know Your F@#%ing Opponent: Arizona Cardinals

ariansralphie

After a brief hiatus, KYFO is back on what we’ll call a Wolf Grey Friday. This week’s Sunday Night Football showdown pits your Seattle Seahawks against the mildly-hated Arizona Cardinals. Know them, learn them, loathe them.

There’s a new sheriff in town. And he looks like an aging version of Ralphie from A Christmas Story.

Bruce Arians is the type of progressive thinker who transcends the game of football. He is to the NFL as the inimitable Joe Maddon is to Major League Baseball. Just look at him. Even if you know nothing about his philosophy, you can tell by his trendy eyewear that stat nerds will be whacking off to every decision he makes until the next bespectacled Kangol-hat-sporting savant comes along. Arians understands all the advanced metrics and really, really gets it because JUST LOOK AT THOSE HORN-RIMMED GLASSES, YOU NEANDERTHALS!!!

Karate Emergency Ep. 2.10: Where Do Broken Hearts Go

whitneyhouston

A critical bet is resolved with a winner and a loser, despite being predicated by a situation that ended in a virtual tie.

Russell Wilson went to Mexico with Future Junior and Future Junior’s mother, UW football needs two wins in three games to become bowl eligible, and the excitement of college basketball is finally upon us.

But mostly, we talk about sex parties, strip clubs, Whitney Houston, and what you can learn about a man through pickup basketball. Thanks for sticking with us through all of this debauchery.
