Enjoy Your Parting Gifts, Husky Fans

Here are some parting gifts for enduring one of the worst games in basketball history. Whether you’re a downtrodden Husky fan or a joyous Cougar fan, you need to know that Helen Keller called and mentioned how freakin’ happy she was that she couldn’t witness what took place in Hec Edmundson Pavilion on Sunday night. That’s all. Let’s go.

*Editor’s note: Correction. Keller Morse Coded it to me. Obviously.

Parting Gift No. 1: The Most Egregious Call In The Entire World

If you watched the game, you know what call I’m talking about. The continuation and-one on DeAngelo Casto early in the second half. That call was so amazingly horrible that it managed to stand out from the usual crap we’re used to seeing from Pac-10 officials.

Yes, the Huskies played absolutely horrible. And no, they did not deserve to win that game. Similarly, that one call did not directly impact the outcome of the contest.

Nate Robinson Traded To Zombie Bastards

There’s really no nice way to spin this. It hurts. The Zombie Sonics obtaining a Husky legend? It’s the absolute twisting of the knife.

I hope Clay Bennett walks outside his residence today and gets hit by a bus.

I hope Nate goes and tears it up in OKC.

I hope David Stern gets kicked in the balls.

That is all.

Nate should be a Sonic right now. Bring back our team.

A live collection of timely thoughts on the Washington-Arizona men’s basketball game.

3:01 p.m. – Good news, Husky fans. I found a 16-ounce PBR in my fridge with expiration date Feb. 21, 2011. Absolutely fantastic.

3:04 p.m. – Oregon sucks.

3:08 p.m. – Yeah, I had it on FSN for the past couple minutes…

3:09 p.m. – You wouldn’t expect a state like Arizona to have a whiteout.

3:10 p.m. – How many Latinos you think are in McKale Center right now? I’ll set the over-under at 3.5.

3:11 p.m. – Jesse Perry’s shooting form is hideous. But he looks like ‘roided out Larry Fitzgerald, so it’s okay.

3:12 p.m. – Kyle Fogg’s long arms get him in trouble on that foul. Three shots coming for Isaiah.

Dawg Pack Dirt: Stanford

Dawg Pack Dirt: Stanford

Volume 7, Issue 13, February 12, 2011

Special to Seattle Sportsnet

Written by dedicated Dawg Pack members

*Editor’s note: Let it be known that Angelo Chol, a 6’9″ power forward from San Diego, will be in attendance for Saturday’s game against Stanford. Chol is one of the top remaining uncommitted recruits in the country for the class of 2011 and is making his official visit to the University of Washington. He is likely to be attending the game with UW commits Tony Wroten Jr. and Hikeem Stewart, both of whom are also making their official visits (in spite of their previous commitments to the purple-and-gold). Make these guys feel welcome, Dawg Pack!

Danger Zone

What is it about the zone defense that gives the Husky Men’s Basketball team so many damn problems?

Your typical 2-3 zone isn’t all that exotic. Might as well be the missionary position of basketball defenses. Boring, yet effective. And when it comes to the Dawgs, opposing teams are having great success (Borat voice) with standard coitus.

Last season, I wrote this article about Washington’s struggle with the 2-3 (note the title, Bailey Stenson). It served as a layman’s guide to the zone defense, explaining exactly what the Huskies were doing wrong and what they could do to improve. Apparently, no one affiliated with the team read my article. Thanks, jerks.

Absolutely nothing has changed from a year ago. At least where results are concerned.

The Elephant In The Room

Okay, here’s the thing. We all know that a University of Washington Men’s Basketball player is being investigated for rape. If you don’t know by now, you’ve been living on Mars. In fact, I bet most of you probably know the name of the player who’s being investigated. You can talk about it amongst yourselves, but no reputable media operation can so much as whisper it in print.

In the world of journalism, there are some things that just don’t slip. Real journalism, in fact, might be the last honest profession on earth. Because journalists keep secrets and protect information like Swiss banks. Think of all those sources and all those names as one big vagina. And think of your friendly neighborhood journalist as the chastity belt surrounding that vagina, to which there is no key. That sh*t’s on lock. And it’s not getting out.

A live collection of timely thoughts on the Washington-Washington State basketball game.

7:02 p.m. – Kick off the game with an Ernesto sighting. He’s wearing a green tie, but you know he’s secretly rooting for Venoy. Kevin Calabro on the play-by-play. Sweet.

7:04 p.m. – “I think he’s gonna score 12 points on 7-for-38 shooting.” –my friend Jameson on Klay Thompson’s performance tonight. Do the math…

7:08 p.m. – That “No Means No” sign is clever…

7:09 p.m. – DeAngelo Casto with the first bucket for Wazzu. You know he’s coming back for his senior year…

The Three-Day Progression of Derrick Williams’ Twitter Account

Whether you “get” Twitter or not, you’ll enjoy this.

This is a three-day glance at the Twitter account of one Derrick Williams (@bigdthatsme23), power forward for the University of Arizona (men’s) basketball team.

Beginning on Tuesday, January 18th, Williams began Tweeting smack talk towards the University of  Washington in snippets of 140 characters or less.

By the evening of Thursday, January 20th, Williams had humbly devoured all of his characters (i.e. eaten his words) after the Huskies defeated the Wildcats by a score of 85-68.

Join us on this journey as we witness the progression of Williams’ epic fail.
