What’s Eating Richard Sherman?

shermannEight weeks ago, right before Halloween, a six-foot-three-inch, dreadlocked Harry Potter stepped to the podium at the Seattle Seahawks’ practice facility and delivered a weekly press conference on behalf of defensive back Richard Sherman. From the cloak to the spectacles to the wand he carried in his hand, the costume was convincing enough that onlookers couldn’t help but laugh.

How many professional athletes could have this much fun with their obligatory meeting with the press? How many celebrities would subject themselves to the silliness of a holiday for children by dressing up as a character from their favorite fantasy novel? This was Richard Sherman at his most human and his very best – charming, hilarious, witty, and fun.

Karate Emergency, Ep. 48: Expect 1-to-3 Inches

12022016-_mg_8016-1020x680

Don’t take your small children to see R-rated movies. It’s a bad idea.

Also, it’s supposed to snow in Seattle this week. We’ll see about that.

The Mariners are making moves at the Winter Meetings, acquiring a pitcher who actually threw a no-hitter in the major leagues.

Will the Seahawks upgrade their offensive line this offseason, or instead bring back the likes of Kam Chancellor and Steven/Stephen Hauschka? Can they somehow find a way to do it all?

Plus, above all else, the Huskies are Pac-12 Champions and on their way to the College Football Playoff. Our entire crew is excited, even the resident Duck — who also happens to be celebrating the hiring of Oregon’s new football coach, Willie What’s-His-Name.

All that and more on the latest KE!

Karate Emergency, Ep. 46: My Posse’s On Broadway

Look what you did, America.

Don’t deny it. Don’t hide from it. We elected that guy. How did this happen? And what’s next for us? Shit just got real.

Assemble your posses, because we’re in this together, just like LeBron.

Russell Wilson’s got his crew looking good, and he’s added a new team on the side, too. First football, then baseball, now the Seahawks quarterback tries his hand at basketball. Do we even deserve this guy anymore?

Plus, the reintroduction of Singlehawk, and a whole slew of Tindermonials to get you through the week.

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

Karate Emergency, Ep. 44: Barbershop Quintet


shermanjones

The resident 12th Man Maniac is fired up about the Seahawks defensive schemes, so we corral a former member of the team’s defense to weigh in and bring some levity to a heated debate. Marcus Trufant and Terry Hollimon from The Barbershop make an impromptu guest appearance and join the show to share their vast football knowledge with the masses.

Plus, the Huskies set out to do something this weekend that most of us have only ever witnessed on Xbox, and Chris Hansen is keeping the dream alive in Sodo.

Karate Emergency, Ep. 38: The King Meerkat

Jason-La-Canfora

The esteemed Jason La Canfora, NFL reporter extraordinaire, joins us in-studio for what is undoubtedly the most fun we’ve ever had on Karate Emergency.

A resident pain in Mitch Levy’s ass, which we love, and the king of all the meerkats, we talk Seahawks, NFL football, Russell Wilson, and most importantly, the MLB playoff race.

Plus, was Sunday the greatest day in Sounders history for non-soccer fans?

And how many f-bombs can we get a respected media presence to say on-air before we wrap this shit up?

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

 

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. 19: Matt Calkins, the Classy Meerkat

marshawnretire

Seattle Times columnist Matt Calkins joins the show to discuss his latest feature on Marshawn Lynch’s retirement and the timing of the announcement. Was Marshawn’s announcement really lacking in “class”? And how have terms like this evolved to become so divisive in the world of sports today?

We also take some time to remember the Super Bowl and delve into a controversial topic that involves a quarterback who was at the game, but did not throw a single pass.

We spend a solid two minutes on Husky Hoops, before rounding out the show with This Week in ’90s History and an impromptu ranking of the best actors to ever play Batman.

All this as the O.G. Meerkat joins us in studio for the 19th installment of Karate Emergency!
