For those of you who don’t know Ryan Divish, he happens to be the Mariners beat writer for the Tacoma News-Tribune and one of Seattle Sportsnet’s most loyal readers.
On a personal note, Divish hails from Havre, Mont. and is a proud alum of the University of Montana. As one of the few Seattleites who has been to Havre, being able to say I know someone from that small town is a huge accomplishment. Husky women’s basketball fans may also recount that former player Loree Payne also hailed from the bustling metropolis of Havre (which, for the record, is pronounced ‘Hav-err’ and does not rhyme with the last name of a quarterback named Brett).
If nothing else, you’ll be able to enjoy an off day from that pompous bastard Mitch (only joking, kind of) and instead listen to a guy who you’d be able to share a Keystone Light and feel okay about (as opposed to a guy more likely to be found sipping Chianti).
