“Let Burien Chevrolet make you a great deal!” - Elise Woodward
Here's Jerry in The Seattle Times today writing about the Seahawks:
Pete Carroll, who is always the sun shining above the Seahawks, walked away sprinkling giddiness. Of course he did. Carroll could make a wart seem like a beauty mark.
As the Seahawks coach reviewed a fruitful offseason Thursday, he was so merry he managed to refer to struggling backup quarterback Brady Quinn as “next to perfect” at his job, even as the team worked behind the scenes to bring back Tarvaris Jackson.
Blah must sit next to perfect.
What’s really next to perfect is the momentum the Seahawks have right now. They followed an 11-5 season and second-round playoff exit with an epic offseason featuring a trade for versatile wide receiver Percy Harvin and including a free-agent bonanza of affordable pass rushers Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett. Add in a typical solid draft, and general manager John Schneider has the Seahawks in the enviable but pressure-packed position of prime Super Bowl contender.
Consider it a next-to-perfect rebuilding job.
And now that the phase is over, get ready for one of the most important and dangerous seasons in Seattle sports history.
The next time we see the Seahawks together, they’ll be in training camp in late July, preparing feverishly for a year on Front Street. They’ll receive more premature love than they ever have, but they’ll set franchise records for scrutiny, too. Every little thing will be a big deal.

Elise and Jerry play some new videos of Mueneori Kawasaki and his hilarious interviews. The Mariners had Kawasaki last year and he was known for being the weirdest player in the ball park. Doing awkward antics in the dugout during games, pre-game rituals that most would say is unconventional. After doing the beloved interview after hitting a game winning double, he is at it again. Here is why this guy is becoming my favorite player, check these videos out, you'll enjoy a good laugh on a gloomy Thursday.
Here is the original video:
Here is a interview with MLB Network:
Here is the fan shot video of him singing the Canadian Anthem:
Coming up on Elise and Jerry from 10 a.m.-noon Thursday:
-- How high should the Mariners go to re-sign Kendrys Morales?
-- After Tom Wilhelmsen's latest blown save Wednesday night, we'll debate what the Mariners should do with their bullpen.
-- One final Mariners' nugget: Dustin Ackley started in left field for Tacoma on Wednesday night. With Nick Franklin emerging at second base, the Mariners are going about trying to answer the question of what to do with Ackley, who was their future at second base up until a few weeks ago. Does he project to be a useful player in the outfield? Only if he comes back and drives the ball better.
-- It's the final day of the Seahawks' three-day minicamp. We'll lower the curtain on the Seahawks' offseason. The next time we see them together, it'll be training camp.
-- The Phoenix Coyotes' future in Glendale, Ariz., is still in limbo, and Seattle has been named as a candidate to buy the Coyotes and move them here. Realistic option?
-- At 11 a.m., we'll hold a fun contest for you to win a Father's Day golf fourseome at Willows Run on Coyote Creek. All you have to do is give the best, most creative answer to this question: What is your dream golf foursome and why?
