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.

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

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

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!

Karate Emergency Ep. 17: Kanye, Cam, and Clapbacks

The gang returns from a brief hiatus after a shocking turn of events at the studio.

We catch up after our time apart, discuss Wednesday’s Twitter feud that broke the internet, learn about “clapbacks,” weigh in on the polarizing figure that is Cam Newton, and lament the end of the Seahawks season.

The latter half of our show transitions to a more safe-for-work conversation around the continued success of Husky hoops, and we close things out with a detailed analytical breakdown on the Top 10 Seattle Mariners promotional giveaways of the 2016 season.

 

Mr. Walsh’s Wild Ride

walshThere was no doubt in anyone’s mind that Blair Walsh would nail that kick.

It was a chip shot, a 27-yard attempt from the left hash, an absolute gimme.

The field goal would give the Vikings a two-point lead. The Seahawks would get the ball back with a little more than 20 seconds remaining in the contest. The Vikings might squib the ensuing kickoff, force the Hawks to field the football in the frigid cold, attempt a return, and take time off the clock. Or they might blast it to the back of the end zone for a touchback, as they had routinely been doing, in spite of the conditions. Either way, Russell Wilson wouldn’t have much time to lead the offense down the field in search of a victory.

Karate Emergency Ep. 16: Got Gas?

griffey

The legendary sound of one of Seattle’s most revered sports radio hosts graces the airwaves this week, as we welcome Mike Gastineau onto the show and kick Slickhawk to the curb (for the time being).

Gas leads us down memory lane, as we reminisce about the greatness of Ken Griffey, Jr. on the day he becomes a first ballot Hall of Famer. (And be sure to pay close attention to that Dave Niehaus story.)

We break away from the Junior lovefest to discuss the Seahawks venture to the frozen tundra for their playoff matchup with the Vikings. Marshawn is back, the temperature will be well below freezing, and our guest co-host once saved someone you probably know from getting arrested in Minnesota.

Breaking news demands our attention, with Athletic Director Scott Woodward leaving Washington for Texas A&M. What will his legacy be at UW, and how did Woodward shape the current landscape of sports on Montlake?

Finally, Husky hoops takes center stage with a monumental weekend sweep over the L.A. schools to open conference play. Are the Huskies for real? We debate the legitimacy of these young pups.

All that, PLUS This Week in ’90s History!
