Quarterback K.J. Costello to Mississippi State. Hmmm. Mike Leach finally beat UW.

Basketball team keeps dropping
This season, the UW men’s basketball team has given us a new meaning for the term “fade away.”

Aren’t you tired yet of Huskies fans complaining about Coach Hopkins’ team? If you want to watch a team from Washington state that can beat Oregon or hold a lead, get cable — almost all the Gonzaga games are televised.

Weeks before spring training starts and the Mariners are lowering fan expectations already. News flash to the M’s: Fan expectations are already as low as they can get. If you don’t make the investment you will not win — ever.

The Mariners canceled FanFest and missed out on the biggest marketing opportunity of the year. I have now decided that me and my buddies George ($1), Thomas ($2), Abe ($5), Alex ($10), Andy ($20), Uly ($50) and Benjamin ($100) will go hang out elsewhere for the season.
It’s weird. I will always like Richard Sherman, but I never want the Niners to win (Matt Calkins: “Seahawks fans have reasons to celebrate 49ers’ Super Bowl loss”). Based on that, I kind of want him to play poorly so his team will lose, but I don’t hate him. He’s kind of like an ex.

Not this time
I am happy for Richard Sherman and that he will get his wish. He won’t be going to the White House.
