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.
University of Washington tight end Kavario Middleton says the Huskies will score 50 points on Saturday against Washington State in the Apple Cup. I need 50 points by halftime. I’m trying to get to Tacoma to see the Bothell-Skyline game (which, let’s face it, is a better matchup than Washington-Washington State) and need an excuse to leave at intermission.
So let’s try and put up 50 points by halftime, Huskies. I mean, you shouldn’t set your sights on a number this low. The scoring is technically infinite, though at some point the clock plays a role. And 50 points is, at the very least, a mere seven scores. Seven. That’s nothing.
It would have been moved to Qwest Field, but naturally the Cougars and Huskies couldn’t agree on ticket allotment and that’s what kept it from getting shifted. So it really was about money, and it really didn’t matter what the fans thought, and they were going to do it anyways, but our schools’ mutual differences actually helped all us fans out. Imagine that. Go Coug-Dawgs.
Editor’s Note: Every now and then we like to solicit the differing opinions of outside voices, which is why we’ve enlisted the help of our newest correspondent, the Devil’s Advocate. We’ll check in with D.A. on a weekly basis and see what’s going through his mind.
Husky Stadium is falling down. Martin Stadium is a glorified cow pasture. Qwest Field represents all that is right with America. If the Sounders can play there, shouldn’t Seattle’s nicest stadium be good enough for the second-rate Apple Cup? It’s not the Superbowl, people, it’s a college football game.
In this crap economy, major corporations need your money to stay afloat. Are you going to step up to the plate and help the rich and powerful piece together their trust funds, or sit back and smugly pretend like you’re doing something with that t-shirt you made protesting the changing of the times?
Get with it, next topic.
