Karate Emergency Ep. 27: Street Vacation

02 - Occidental Avenue S. - Facing South

We’ll get to that street vacation in due time, but first we have to exhaust a fair amount of ire, while also discussing Slickhawk’s new living, breathing lady friend.

The Sonics are one step closer to returning, provided city government doesn’t screw this all up. The Mariners have a chance to turn Wednesday’s win into a winning streak. And the Seahawks have an old face back in town, with potential new faces forthcoming.

In-between, we debate who actually had the Seahawks’ 2016 schedule first, and does life really happen in the DMs?

All that and more on this week’s Karate Emergency!

Karate Emergency Ep. 26: An Asshole is Still An Asshole

2017778566

A special opportunity presents itself this week, as the KE crew gets first crack at reacting to Wednesday’s Softy vs. Geoff Baker interview on Sports Radio KJR. It’s exactly what you’d expect.

Before that, however, we get to steal from the Ian & Puck Show by playing a variation of the best segment on radio, Ask Adam. This time around, Producer Adam gets a legitimate shot at a tangible prize.

Plus, are Mariner fans really disloyal? Are the Golden State Warriors the best team of all-time? And is Kobe the most selfish basketball player ever?

All that and more on this week’s Karate Emergency!

Karate Emergency Ep. 25: Hashtag Opening Day

The sun is out and baseball season is upon us, which means the Mariners and their scorching hot start are top of mind. Things are looking up for the hometown nine, but have you seen Dae-Ho Lee in Super-Mo yet? Truly something to behold.

The NCAA National Championship was one for the ages, plus what exactly did the Sounders TV play-by-play announcer do that’s so hilarious?

All that and more on this week’s Karate Emergency!

 

Karate Emergency Ep. 24: Bros Before Hos

Should you rat on your buddy if he’s cheating on his woman? Should you record your buddy talking about his affairs? We answer these questions and more against the backdrop of a budding sports scandal.

Plus, baseball season is about to get underway, but are the Mariners being assholes about Chris Hansen’s proposed arena project? How should we be balancing our Mariners fanaticism with the reality of the team’s ridiculous stance on progress?

Finally, a seminal This Week in ’90s History, and a farewell letter from a really average guy.

A big week in local news is headlined by a man sitting in a tree for 24 hours, which is absolutely perfect.

On the sports front, Dejounte Murray and Marquese Chriss have announced they’re going pro, but are they ready? We sort out their future, as well as that of the UW men’s basketball program.

The NCAA Tournament  has grabbed our attention, an engagement has sidelined our quarterback, and This Week in ’90s History features one of the most iconic films of your adolescence.

It’s all here in this week’s Karate Emergency!

Karate Emergency Ep. 22: Steak and a BJ Day

We’re celebrating a myriad of holidays on the show today, including two that pay homage to a trio of things men can’t live without.

Beyond the special observances, a host of topics ranging from Seahawks free agency, to the Pac-12 Tournament, to Terrence Ross’s famous new love interest dot the spectrum of subjects at hand.

Enjoy your steak on Monday!

Karate Emergency Ep. 21: Faking Charity and Death

An earth-scorching on a veiled attempt at charity, a potentially staged demise, a revolutionary basketball player, and one epic fall from our beloved Slickhawk. Plus a bevy of grumpiness and a transcendent This Week in ’90s History.

It’s all here in the 21st installment of Karate Emergency!
