Softy's photos from his road trip with the Huskies, as they beat the Utes
Here are a few photos from Softy's trip back to Nebraska for the Husky game
Softy and Dick Fain traveled to San Antonio to catch all the madness that is the Final Four and Championship Game. Check out the photos as the guys tried to look like they were "working".
The Seattle Seahawks have signed wide receiver Justin Veltung, the team announced today.
Veltung, from nearby Puyallup, played 43 career games at the University of Idaho and collected 62 receptions for 901 yards with eight touchdowns and returned 80 kickoffs for 1,743 yards with two touchdowns in his career. He left Idaho as its all-time kickoff return leader (78) and kickoff return yardage leader (1,743), and 11th on its all-time all-purpose yardage list with 2,972 yards.
Veltung attended Seattle's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis from May 10-12.
That's the official release from the Seahawks. Now:
THIS is incredible.
That is 56 inches high. FYI.. Gary Coleman was 56" tall. So imagine that Justin is jumping on Gary Coleman's head.
Here's the news on Crabtree

Kirk Morrison was playing for the Bills last year and knows what it's like in an NFL locker room. We asked him questions that many people are asking around the NFL right now:

When athletes answer media questions in different lanuages, those of us who don't speak that language often wonder what they're actually saying.
In some cases, maybe the player is speaking... oh... I don't know... let's say Japanese (wink, wink)... Something might be lost in translation! :)
Bet you haven't seen this recently!
It happened after a solo Home Run by Domonic Brown of the Phillies.
In case you were wondering, spitballs aren't allowed.
Check out MLB Rule 8.02 (a) (2):
The pitcher shall not --
(2) expectorate on the ball, either hand or his glove
Thanks to Crashburn Alley for the gif. If you want Phillies coverage, that's the place to be!
Our friends at 95.7 The Game in San Francisco have an interesting relationship with Sacramento, it would seem. Ric Bucher, formerly of ESPN and now a co-host on The Game, has been particularly at odds with them.
Not 100% sure of the context here but they do a segment called "High Road, Low Road" and on this case, Ric took the low road. Enjoy
In case there is anybody out there that is looking for more reasons to "dislike" David Stern, Here comes this tidbit from Steve Kyler, the Editor and Publisher of HOOPSWORLD. He covers the NBA and basketball for USA Today Sports.
Sources close to the process in Dallas yesterday said that David Stern was an active participant in Seattle/Sac vote.— Steve Kyler (@stevekylerNBA) May 16, 2013
Sources said that Seattle group was compelling and that more owners were probablyin favor of Seattle vote, but that Stern swayed the vote.— Steve Kyler (@stevekylerNBA) May 16, 2013
Seattle offer would have valued the team at more than $625 million and that a $115 million relocation fee would have been paid.— Steve Kyler (@stevekylerNBA) May 16, 2013
RT @kalaker1: did that fool stern veto something again? ---> Didn't have veto power, but did turn some opinions in support of Sacramento.— Steve Kyler (@stevekylerNBA) May 16, 2013
