Let’s laugh and have a good chuckle too


Start your day with a couple laughs about the M's.

The first comes courtesy of John Blanchette, as he comments on the (sad) news Ron Fairly won't be back with the M's broadcast team next year.

The second comes from Tacoma's John McGrath, as he writes about the M's next purge. You'll laugh because it's better than crying about the M's front office. McGrath chronicles the latest in a series of poorly handled moves.

From the prep world, Craig Smith of the Times has a book for all parents of high school athletes. Meanwhile, Mount Si pounded defending 4A champion Skyline.

There is also a feature out of Tacoma on Cascade Christian's undefeated football team.

Jim Meehan writes about UI linebacker David Vobora, the Eugene, Ore., product who leads the Vandals in tackles. Saturday will be a homecoming of sorts for Vobora too.

In WHL news, the league hopes to open up the game with new rules this season.

OK, so I'm headed out the door to pick up Dave. Next stop, that Rite-Aid on Regal for some vitamins - What, you thought I would say Bozeman? That's about 10 stops away. – then on to Dave's. As always, check the sports blogs for up-to-date news. This link will lead you to all of them.
