In the spirit of all the success, we dial up the only Baltimore Orioles fan we know and talk a little shit before delving into our usual grumpiness, then celebrate the recent triumphs of our local clubs.
In between, we discuss the value of the 12s and sort out Slickhawk’s newfound love life.
All that and more on this week’s Karate Emergency!
The Mariners season is deader than Bernie from Weekend at Bernie’s and the start of football season is just days away. That leaves us to bridge the gap with a barrel of shenanigans, which is more or less our forte.
It’s time to get grumpy over pumpkin spice lattes, fall weather, first day of school pics, and everything in between. Plus, a new take on Tindermonials, and a celebration of tailgating season.
Your go-to pseudo-sports podcast returns this week to discuss the state of the Mariners, Russell Wilson’s wedding relocation, Slickhawk’s ESPN instructional swimming video, and a massive dildo protest in Texas.
It’s rare for the Seattle Mariners to find themselves in a playoff race, but here we are nearing the end of August and the M’s are in the thick of the postseason hunt.
What should be cause for celebration is apparently being muted by Safeco Field’s ushers, many of whom have worked hard over the years to stifle fun in the ballpark.
One such usher went rogue on Saturday night, in the midst of the Mariners’ 8-2 win over Milwaukee.
With two outs in the top of the eighth inning, the tying run at the plate, a full count on batter Chris Carter, and Felix Hernandez on the mound, one would reasonably expect fans to come to their feet and cheer on their ace. Not in this usher’s section, though:
Okay, get past the fact that the fan in question looks like he got lost on his way to The ‘Pen, and focus on his behavior. He’s doing nothing wrong. He’s standing and cheering for his team in a close contest. Why any usher would choose to reprimand the actions of a fan doing exactly what he’s supposed to is a bit confusing.
If anything, the seemingly indifferent crowd around this side show could use a bit of a pick-me-up.

Hey, look, it’s not you. We know it’s not you because we’re pretty sure that’s Ryan Gosling, and you are definitely not Ryan Gosling.
