Who knew a balk could be so exciting

Why you should listen to 5 hours of Mariners coverage on the radio everyday

Mike Blowers Is Awesome and So Is Rizz's Giggle

Do We Gotta Love This Guy?

I was excited, as I'm sure all of you were (I guess that just means Finn), when I heard that the Seahawks had signed T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Now, however, I'm starting to question whether or not he's a good fit for this team and this city. Let me clear up immediately that I think he is a very good receiver and I am not writing him off or saying that he sucks, yet something worries me.

He's an asshole.

It's obvious too. Every time I see him he looks pissed. There was a play in this Sunday's game in which Seneca Wallace threw a ball in to the end zone that probably should have been intercepted. Luckily, the Bears DB ended up dropping it, and the Hawks got away with one. More disturbing than the awful throw was the shot of Housh on the replay. The camera was behind the play and you could see Housh running an underneath route in the background. As Seneca's pass flew into the end zone, Housh was visible in the background, before the pass had even come down he turned his back to the play towards the sideline and angrily snapped off his chin strap. Thanks a pantload Teej, it's nice to know that if they had picked the ball off you would be off the field during a potential runback.

Couple that with the fact that he totally gave up on a ridiculously catchable would-be touchdown pass against the Niners; and the fact that he reminds me of Orlando's Primo from Only the Strong, and I'm just not sure I like the guy. Maybe I'm overreacting. Maybe when Matt comes back he'll cheer up, since QB1 was the main reason he came here in the first place. But I'm not sure. It's very possible that he's one of the new-age diva wide receivers, the likes of which the Seahawks have never dealt with. Which is troubling because the men that make up that group are some of the most despicable people on Earth. He's like Ochocinco without the sense of humor, which basically just makes him a dick. It's possible that by the end of the season I'll take back everything I just said, but I haven't liked what I've seen so far.


Seahawk Stadium Immortality

That's right gang, one of your party hosts will have his name forever etched on the walls of Seahawks Stadium.  United States Open Champion Seattle Sounders FC are honoring their season ticket holders with a shrine bearing all the names of the inaugural group.  Mine will be up there and I am assuming it will be similar to the Seahawk Ring of Honor, so look for my name the next time you are at the stadium.


You Gotta Love These Guys (No Seriously)

Last night's game against the Yankees featured one of the best endings to an M's game in recent memory and kind of epitomized the season. Good pitching kept them close, they pulled it out in the end with a walk-off, and the whole team participated in a joyous and genuine celebration.

I don't know what my favorite part about the win was. Of course there was Felix pitching a complete game against the best offense in the league, Sweeney extending the game with another clutch hit, and Ichiro's homer. All of that was great, but maybe the best part was Ichiro giving the crotch chop to the rest of the team before he tip-toed home, obviously worried that he was going to get the shit beaten out of him. That never would have happened before, especially last year. Up until the last few months Ichiro always seemed like an asshole, and he still might be, but at least he's acting cool for once, like he's actually part of the team, and not above his lowly (Latin) American teammates. And who do we have to thank for this? The two best teammates in the world Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Sweeney (No wonder Piazza wanted to play with him so badly). I mean just look at the picture at the top of this post. Sweeney's doing an intense crotch-chop, while Griffey looks happier than I've ever seen a sober person.

Basically, I just wanted to point out that this has been a fun team to root for. And while they won't make the playoffs, they only need to win 5 of their last 14 to be over .500, which is better than most of us thought, regardless of our preseason predictions post. Did I just jinx them into finishing 3-11? Probably, but honestly, who cares, at least it's been fun ... for once.



Wow, over a week without a post. No wonder no one shows up and comments anymore.

Well, look... I'd love to tell you it's gonna get better, but the next two weeks for yours truly, will be pretty meager. I'm SUUUUUUPER busy the next two weeks.

I'm gonna follow my dream. Someday Mustacheers, I'm gonna own a biiiiig sports bar...

Or maybe just a mediocre sports blog. (See that segway back to the list?)

Here's #17:


This movie is fantastic. And really marks the point in our epic(ly long) list where there's no turning back. Nothing but classics from here on out.

Trying to say something funny about this movie is tough, cuz it's almost as funny as it gets. This movie is terribly underrated. It's nonstop laughs. Like everything the South Park duo does. Put them together with the team that brought you Naked Gun (hey there's a baseball game in that movie, where was it on this list!?!?) and you have a masterpiece!

Favorite moments?

- The News reporter says "Looks like time finally ran out for the old cocksucker"
- "Mr. Squeaks, how old are you?"
- The car soundtrack
- "I don't have your fucking ball"

Too many too name.

Later players.



Tough schedule for yours truly the rest of the week:

Tonight - Fantasy Draft
Tomorrow - Fantasy Draft
Thursday - Kickball
Friday - Mommy's Birthday
Saturday - Wedding
and then Sunday.....


Needless to say, there won't be a lot of time for posts in the coming days. So what can we do?

It's not like a season prediction would do any good. It should be obvious to anyone visitng this site that the Seahawks ill go undefeated with Matt Hasselbeck winning the league MVP trophy (a surprising 200 yd day from cagey vet Edge James take the SuperBowl MVP trophy, however). So what can we do?

Let's keep it real simple. Favorite Seahawks, or Seahawks memories.

I'll get things started (looking for some Mustacheer participation here people... I'm talkin' Ex-Mariner game level)

For me... it's the Hawks Nest.

The tailgates. The finger points... "You" followed by the high fives. The randoms we know up there. The tazer chants. The season ticket holders. Old and new. Let's bring the Nest back to greatness this year.

Let's get blacked out all season!!!!


Can't wait for Sunday.



Brian Rusell: we hardly knew ye.

Once again, I am late to the party, and I apologize. But I've been partying at Bumbershoot all weekend. So without further delay... Goodbye Brian Russell. You will be missed...

...just like the majority of your open field tackles.


(but no hard feelings. Good luck wherever you end up)


#18 The Bad News Bears

Just a fun baseball movie, that's a lot dirty than I remember it being when I was a kid. Plus It launched the career of one Jackie Earle Haley...

Sure, it took him over 30 years to really capitalize on it (Little Children, Semi-Pro, Watchmen, Shutter Island) but good for you Jackie! Better late than never sport!!!

(seriously though, good for you! Kelly Leak rules.)


World's Biggest Scum Bag Retires

Sorry I'm late to the party on this one, but I forgot that the NBA actually exists.

Apparently, giant asshole Bruce Bowen has decided to call it quits.

What a bummer. Now maybe jump shooters of the league will be able to land without turning ankles, and run around screen without taking elbows to the ribs.

This guy was a royal shit head and I hate him.

Apparently I'm not the only one either. I ran into an old buddy of mine and here's what he had to say, take it away Maynard:

So long Bruce Bowen. Go Fuck Yourself.

The Ducks Suck, but...

I hate the Ducks as much as the next guy... and everyone has seen this at this point:

Well, this might shock you, but...

I don't really have a problem with this Duck. Yeah, he reacted poorly. Real poorly. But it's pretty clear that this Boise St. dude walked up and talked some shit.

What did he think was going to happen?!?!

I dunno. I'm certainly not outraged. What say you Mustacheers?


#19 Hoosiers. What a curve ball! This is like, the best movie ever!!!

I've never seen this movie. I know... "WHAT!?!?!"


Explain to me why it's so awesome then.


# 20

Plenty of classic moments come from this movie. From the multiple run-ins with the Beast to Squints' pulling one over on Wendy Peffercorn (He kissed her long and he kissed her good). It also says the word "shit" once. But there are a few things that bother me when I watch it now.

1. The giant bill on Smalls' fish hat.

2. The sneaking suspicion that Squints went on to become Steve-O later in life.

3. The final scene in which Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez steals home.
This movie was made in 1993, so we'll assume that that is when this scene takes place. The story of them as kids was from 1962. Benny had to be at least 12 right? If not 13. So when you do the math that means the Jet stole home as a 43 year-old man. I find that a little hard to believe. Also, the scene would have been made exponentially better if they panned down to show that none of Smalls' radio equipment was plugged in. Of course, there would have been a whole sub-plot where it was explained that as part of Benny's contract he demanded that his delusional childhood friend be given a booth for every home game complete with a statistician so that he could believe he was a big league announcer.

But I digress. What do you guys think, could the Jet have swiped 4th base at 43?

College Football Madness!!!

In case you didn't notice, and judging by our site attendance, you haven't... we've been short on posts around here. The M's are in that nasty middle ground of just good enough to not make the playoffs, the Sonics are gone, and the Seahawks haven't started yet. Not much to write about... well that's all about to change!!!!!!! (probably not, but let's go with it...) ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! IT's TIME FOR A CHANGE!!!! And there will be change because....

It's College Football Season!!!!

Most of our Mustacheers fall into two categories here:

Washington State Cougar Fans


Husky fans.

This year...I can sense it! A great season for the State of Washington Football!!! (Hey, it's gotta be better than last year right?)


I've been following Ted Miller's EXCELLENT blog on the Pac-10 over at ESPN.com, and well... things aren't looking good if you trust what ol' Ted's got to say.

He's doing some positional rankings... and just about every one of 'em has Washington State or Washington battling it out for 10th place. (In all actuality, the Cougs seem to be favored in most... haven't gotten to QB yet though).

So... I'd say my enthusiasm for the season has once again been tempered. That is until... I saw one of the latest rankings. and I remembered...


(you can barely even see a false start)

It also reminded me of this magical day!!!

So, no matter how bleak the prospects for your upcoming season look... whoever the fuck you root for... there is always hope!

Unless you're a dirty fucking husky (not all of you, but the ugly majority) who probably has some delusion that you're on your way to a PAC10 championship. You losers have nothing to look forward to. And I hate you.






#21... starring the Magic Man and El Diablo...

I can't be funnier than this movie so I why try... hell I wasn't even funnier then Rookie of the Year.

Off the top of my head? My favorite part is Gary Cole speeding away telling a young Ricky Bobby: "I'll see ya when you're grown up!"

Hahahahaha, still kills me!
