Don’t ever forget the Super Bowl


I'm going to combine the Seattle-area pro teams today, because of time constraints.

But I still have time enough to say, no, I'm not over it. The Hawks got hosed in the Super Bowl – and the Steelers are still getting every call, as witnessed by last night's season-opening win over the Miami Dolphins ("Sorry, no one saw your red flag on the field, coach Saban.") – and I'm not letting that go – ever (did I mention I'm Sicilian?).

Letting go is the premise of this Times' article, but don't buy into it. Join me and stew about the Super Bowl until – well, forever.

After a Super Bowl season – and yes, the Hawks were jobbed – Seattle fans may not let go of their Hawks again. At least that's the premise of Art Thiel's column.

Jim Moore takes a day off from making fun of the Huskies to making fun of the Detroit Lions assistant coach that was arrested for driving naked. Of course, he was reportedly intoxicated as well.

The Seahawks have picked their captains, and Mike Sando has them – along with a bunch of other stuff – on his blog.

On the Mariners' front, with no Thursday game it was a chance for the Times' Greg Bishop to catch up with J.J. Putz, who has delivered as the closer this year.
