Has Seattle sports reached rock bottom?


After another miserable weekend in the Emerald City, there are very strong arguments that Seattle is the most miserable city to be a sports fans.

Seahawks:

Thought to be a sure-fire playoff contender, the Seahawks have brought the worst kind of hurt: unexpected failure.

In Mike Holmgren's last season, the Seahawks seemed poised to make another run at the NFC West crown (not exactly bragging rights, but still a guaranteed playoff spot) and maybe make some noise in the playoffs.

But after Sunday's loss to Arizona, the 2-8 Seahawks are all but done and will now start analyzing an aging quarterback, mediocre running game and lousy receivers. Arizona is now the class of the NFC West, which is perhaps the worst division the NFL has seen in years.

Mariners:

We wrote a few months ago 100 = 117.
One hundred losses with a $117 million payroll.

The M's are the first team in Major League history to be so miserable and to spend so much doing so. No other team has ever lost 100 games with a nine-digit payroll. You could make the argument that this is the most disappointing team in the history of baseball.
Thank you very much, Richie Sexson, Adrian Beltre and Kenji Johjima.

Washington Huskies (football):

Now 0-10 after a 20-point loss to hapless UCLA, the Dawgs are the lone winless FBS team. They've only been competitive in two games, losing by a touchdown or less to BYU and Stanford.

There's a lame duck coach, the "star" quarterback is hurt and recruiting is looking bleak. Not exactly the prestigious program that UW once was.

And Husky Stadium still has a fucking track circling the field. Disgusting.

Washington Huskies (basketball):

After a two-year hiatus from the NCAA tournament, the Husky hoops squad was supposed to be in the top half of the Pac-10 and make a push for a tourney bid.

But after Saturday's loss to Portland, the Dawgs' confidence is in the gutter and they'll have an eyesore of a loss to an RPI 100-200 team on their bubble résumé. Not the start that U-Dub envisioned.

Sonics:

Now known as the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Sports fans in Seattle are losing their minds. Apathy, depression and anger has set in and Seasonal Affect Disorder is looking like a pretty good alternative right now.

If Seattle isn't the worst city to be a sports fan currently, we don't know what is. (Though the Bay Area isn't that distant of a second. Perhaps bad sports just follow us around!)

YES THEY HAVE!!!!!!!!

JMC said...

boy am I glad they don't live there anymore... but again, things in the bay area aren't much better, and we have twice as many teams, still without a good one... except the Sharks.

JMC said...

and hey, isn't Seattle getting a new MLS team? That'll surely take the sting away from the Sonics leaving.

GMoney said...

I can not say that this is the worst until I find out how your lingerie football team is doing. If they are struggling, then yes, you have my condolences.

Joe said...

Hey, don't forget about the plight of the Cougs (and their large alumni base in Seattle), who might be the only team in college football worse than the Huskies this year and have had just as many hard-luck breaks. The Pillowfight in Pullman starts at Noon Saturday!

Elwood said...

What? No love for the Storm? They may have gone out int he first round the last few years, but at least they're making the playoffs.

Girls aren't just for jerk-off tournaments, you know.

In regards to the track in Husky stadium - comparing the football being played there and how successful UW runners have been this fall, it might be a good idea to get rid of the football field not the track.

I am from San Diego and I feel your pain. We are in a very similar situation. The Padres lost 99 games after having 87 wins the year before. The Chargers were picked by many to win the Superbowl and they are 4-6. The San Diego State University football team is 1-10 and lost once this season 70-7 against a 4-8 team. On the plus side, things can't get much worse and next season they have to do better.

Holmgren is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo overrated it's not funny but it is funny when dum-dum owners flush money down the toilet on coaches who can't win unless their starting QB's name is Brett Favre. lol x 10^1000000

seriously chris, you live in San Diego. You have sun and babes. You have nothing to whine about.
