Karate Emergency Ep. 2.11: Slick’s Dating A Serial Killer

1656_3409090_ver1.0_640_480

Sans the dramatic intro music, the gang is back to discuss the Apple Cup, Husky Basketball, Russell Wilson’s personality problems, and the standard dose of grumpiness.

Amidst it all, we reveal that Slick may be dating a serial killer and we welcome in a special guest to help us break down the Husky/Cougar rivalry.

 

Karate Emergency Ep. 2.10: Where Do Broken Hearts Go

A critical bet is resolved with a winner and a loser, despite being predicated by a situation that ended in a virtual tie.

Russell Wilson went to Mexico with Future Junior and Future Junior’s mother, UW football needs two wins in three games to become bowl eligible, and the excitement of college basketball is finally upon us.

But mostly, we talk about sex parties, strip clubs, Whitney Houston, and what you can learn about a man through pickup basketball. Thanks for sticking with us through all of this debauchery.

Karate Emergency Ep. 2.9: The Band’s Back Together

KE

Original Karate Kid Ryan Divish makes his triumphant return to the show, as our trio expands to a foursome for a night.

We explore the Mariners with Divish, talk some Seahawks, and even touch on UW football.

Most importantly, though, we delve into the world of fans being fans of fans and annihilating other fans, blast local news organizations for jumping on the Seahawks bandwagon to their own self-serving benefit, dissect petitions started by the 12s, give #AllCreditToGee, and break down Kelly’s upcoming date with a soccer personality.

We cap it all off with a rousing edition of America’s favorite game, You Can Only Have One, in the rowdiest episode of the year. Enjoy the aural pleasure.

Karate Emergency Episode 2.7: Flying the Coop

Was Fred Jackson drag racing? Is it possible he jumped the time-space continuum? We take the case to The People’s Court for further deliberation.

Beyond that, there’s a heavy deal of grumpiness with Starbucks (and plastic knives and Halloween costumes, but mostly Starbucks) to kick off the show, we preview the Seahawks-49ers bout, the UW-Oregon debacle is recapped, and we put a nice bow on episode seven with a testament to true love.

The Karate kids kick off the sixth episode with thoughts on the upcoming Huskies-Ducks showdown, complete with a wager on the game.

From there, we talk Seahawks-Panthers, then devote the back half of the show to a more serious conversation on Steve Sarkisian and the difficulties of confronting the very real scenario of substance abuse in our everyday lives.

It’s a bit of different show this time around. Check it out.

The Changing Narrative of A Loathed, Loved, and Enabled Steve Sarkisian

sarkA disease. A medical condition. A weakness. A flaw. An addiction.

Alcoholism is labeled in a number of different ways, which might be why it’s so hard for us to determine how we feel about it. It makes us sad, confused, angry, frustrated, hurt. Sometimes, amidst the laughter and jubilation of the atmosphere in which it is cultivated, we don’t even know we’re staring an alcohol problem straight in the eye. So as it cooks and bubbles and rises to the surface like hot magma inside a rumbling volcano, we pretend it’s not even there, that it’s not a thing.

We joke about it, we chuckle at every one of our friends we deem a borderline alcoholic, and we keep the party going until that climactic moment when we simply cannot rage any longer. And then, suddenly, it’s not fun anymore.

This is where we find Steve Sarkisian.

Karate Emergency Episode 2.1: The New Class

hqdefault

After a four-year hiatus, Karate Emergency reemerges with a new cast of characters (and one holdover), as the most irreverent Seattle sports podcast in a brief and underwhelming history makes its triumphant return to the airwaves.

The Karate kids unleash some grumpiness before discussing the insanity of the Kam Chancellor situation, the state of the Husky football program, and whatever it is the Mariners are doing these days. Rounding out the week’s banter is a rousing edition of America’s favorite game show, You Can Only Have One. And in-between are a fair amount of well allocated expletives.

Slickhawk, Kelly, and yours truly resuscitate KE with the very first episode of the show’s reboot. Whether you like it or not, we’re back.
