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.

Way to represent Seattle, fellas! Keep it up!

Oh, and in case you missed it, the Dawgs finally won a game on the road, too! Pretty big weekend for the Emerald City!

Prince Fielder, Nate Robinson, and other things we need to discuss

I don't think you're ready for this jelly.

Prince Fielder’s Weighty Issues

Prince Fielder won the Home Run Derby on Monday, but that’s not what stands out in my mind. The lasting image I have of Cecil’s kid is that of an obese man doing amazing things with a baseball bat. Fielder might be a great hitter now, but unless he can shed some weight, he’s going to run into the same problems his dad ran into later in his career. The scary thing is, Prince looks much bigger than his dad ever did and he’s only 25 years old.

Listed at 5’11”, 268, Prince is overweight by any stretch of the imagination. His dad played until age 34, when chronic knee problems brought on by his heavy stature started to take their toll on his body.

Facebook findings, MIPs, nostalgic images, and other digressions

ronkittleHoly crapola, Ron Kittle is on Facebook! If you collected baseball cards as a kid like I did, you may very well know that Ron Kittle is a former Major League Baseball player who, in his heyday, was regarded as a power hitter with an inability to hit for average.  Baseball Reference compares Kittle favorably with the Steve Balbonis of our world, which is no compliment.

Anyways, long story short, Ron Kittle is our friend on Facebook, and he’s not the only semi-famous person we’ve made an acquaintance with recently.  We’ve also hooked it up with Mariner broadcaster Dave Sims (a true American hero); ESPN college basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb;  current Major Leaguers Jack Cust, Corey Patterson, Chad Billingsley, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and others; Seattle’s own Felix Hernandez; quarterback Matt Leinart; journalists Peter Gammons and Jeff Pearlman; and even Sportscenter anchor and former KIRO TV sportscaster Linda Cohn.  You can find us on Facebook HERE.

Welcome to the Nate Rob Show!

naterobIn case you haven’t noticed, former Husky Nate Robinson is killing the competition lately.  Forget the dunk contest, that was cool, but it was strictly for kicks and giggles.  I’m talking about the real thing, NBA ballgames.  Nate is having a huge impact on the fate of the New York Knicks, becoming a one-man scoring machine and putting up offensive numbers like he was playing in an And 1 street ball tourney.  It’s ridiculous.

Notes: Hill franchised, I.T. love, and more

83804298JS011_CBE_CLASSIC_FIt’s been easy to overlook everything that’s gone on over the course of today, what with Griffey’s return and all.  But there are a number of other stories Seattle fans need to know about before the day is done, so let’s get to it.

Hawks franchise Hill. Free agent linebacker Leroy Hill will more than likely be returning to Seattle next season, as the Seahawks designated him their franchise player for the offseason, ensuring any outside suitors would have to pay a king’s ransom in order to sign him to a deal.  By placing the franchise tag on Hill, the Hawks have the option to work out a longterm deal with the pass-rush specialist, or simply pay him an average of the top five salaries of players at his position for one year.

I.T. on ESPN. Washington’s Isaiah Thomas is currently being featured in an article on ESPN.com, which can be found HERE.  The Huskies starting point guard was also interviewed in a television segment for the show “First Take,” and the video is posted at the above link as well. Nice to see I.T. get some national love after going relatively unnoticed over the past four months.

Headlines

Danica’s tat taken out of latest SI bikini shoot.  I know.  I read that wrong the first time too.

Selig: Don’t blame me for steroids.  Bud: Don’t blame me for telling you to go f*ck yourself.

Nats prospect Esmailyn Gonzalez falsified name, age.  He said he was 19.  He’s actually 23-year-old Carlos Lugo.  My first clue would have been “Esmailyn.”

Nate Robinson goes for 32 and 10 against Spurs.  Boo.  Yah.

Texas Tech’s Leach could be fired for not signing extension.  File that away under “Problems Tyrone Willingham Will Never Have.”

Hornets trade Tyson Chandler to Thunder.  Welcome to Hell!  The locker room is down the hall, right next to the Fiery Pit of Eternal Doom.  Remember New Orleans?  Remember Chris Paul?  That was fun, wasn’t it?  Well, that’s all over now, allow me to introduce you to Earl Watson….

Saints cut McAllister.  ESPN didn’t have the balls to title this “Saints Drop a Deuce.”
