It’s that time of year again that all fans cherish! When we can belch, drink stuff that might power a locomotive, and scream at bad calls from umpires while making pathetic excuses for why our team finished 23 games out
Woe is us, the Seattle Sports fan. We have very little to live for when it comes to our teams. The Sonics are gone, the Mariners suck bad, the Huskies are two years removed from oh and twelve, the cross-state WSU Cougars are writing a new definition for "horrible," and the MLS Sounders appear to be the only playoffs this city will see in half a decade. I can't even remember what a bowl game looks like!
But there are plenty others out there in other cities who suffer with us, and nothing rubs salt in our wounds like watching the team with twice the money excel in the post season.
We're fed up. We're angry. But let me explain why.
Ten reasons why I would rather sit through six hours with a life insurance salesman than endure one more at-bat watching the New York Yankees!
