  1. A Solemn Lamentation of Seattle Sports

    It has long been said that Seattle sports teams are allergic to winning. It sounds like a joke, but I think most sports fans here truly believe it.

    My Mariners will not be in the playoffs again this year. I don't think they're mathematically eliminated yet, but they will not be in the playoffs this year. Everyone knows it. They were in the driver's seat less than a month ago. Good position in the wildcard. One good winning streak away from an AL West lead. Instead they simply stopped ...
  2. Super Sveta Slays Scary Schiavone

    Well Russia takes home the Fed Cup trophy once again in the last 3 or 4 years by easily sweeping aside Italy 4-0. To start off Day 2 Sveta Kuznetsova faced off with Franny Schiavone. It was a thrilling three set battle that ended with Kuzzy winning 46-76-75.

    The first set began with some sloppy play that had some brilliance mixed in. Some good signs were that Kuzzy was trying to stay aggressive and attacked the net a lot. Although she was a little sloppy she kept it tight but Schiavone ...

  4. The Wonderful Sound of Clanging Metal

    Tonight marked the beginning of the intramural mixed tennis season here at the University of Michigan. I signed up with my partner from last year, my roommate's (now ex-) girlfriend. We went 2-1 in the regular season and made the semifinals of the playoffs last year (winning two rounds in a 10-team bracket).

    Last year our team was named "I Feel Pretty" after the ubiquitous Nike commercial from last fall starring Maria Sharapova. We decided after that that we would name next ...

  5. Who are the Brie Whiteheads and Federers in the Booth? PT.1

    Well.....i think most tennis fans would agree that our commentators are not quite up to snuff with other commentators in the sports world. They have you thinking..."Wow what drugs arent they doing!" and "other comments along those lines. So this will be the first part of my commentators list so feel free to add on comments other names of commentators i forgot.
