Sundays are made for TV

Sunday is a day to sit back, relax and watch Little League on TV, isn’t it?

But first, a few words from our sponsor, The Spokesman-Review.

Our coverage of the Shock af2 championship win, with Blanchette’s column and his game story.

Shifting gears, you can find Glenn Kasses’ Cougar coverage here.

Of course there is more in today’s paper, but lets get to the West Side. Here is the Seattle Times on the Cougs. Craig Smith talks with defensive coordinator Rob Akey, who thinks his defense is improved – though he knows it has a ways to go.

Mike Sando didn’t just cover the Seahawks loss in San Diego in today’s News Tribune, he also gave the reasons behind the Seahawks poor showing. Early on he also mentions a couple injuries, including tight end Itula Mili. The Hawks are already thin at the position due to Jerramy Stevens’ injury.

Also, there was this little piece of news out of San Diego. The Seahawks are going to play the New England Patriots in an exhibition game next year in China, according to Sando.

All I can say is amen to John McGrath’s column in the News Tribune today. As days go by, the arguments against a national Division 1-A football playoff look weaker and weaker.

As a way of fulfilling your Mariners’ Jones, here is a notebook from the P-I. There is a note about Mark Lowe about halfway down and, for once, it’s good news if you are an M’s fan.

Here is a link to Bob Condotta’s Husky blog, which includes a position-by-position analysis of where the Huskies stand with a week left before the season starts.

Condotta mentions this blog in the post. Thanks for the plug – and for the daily Husky news. I know SportsLink’s readers appreciate the information. The comment Bob refers to was meant as a compliment: The more I can read of his stuff, the happier I am. I was really hoping he would expand on some of the well-reasoned points made in last week’s story on his blog – heck, that’s what blogs are for. But there wasn’t any, and I was disappointed.
