This Monday is not mine


This may be all I'm posting today, as I'm off to do my civic duty – think a really bad Pauley Shore movie, though, is there any other kind?

Anyhow, I have to be across the river soon, so here's a couple of links to get you through the morning:

• The NFL draft is over. WSU's Jason Hill was picked Saturday, and a couple more local collegiate athletes were chosen Sunday. Jim Meehan has this story on the Cougars' Eric Frampton and Whitworth's Michael Allan. For you Seahawk fans, here is the News Tribune's draft story and Art Thiel's column. The Hawks also traded Darrell Jackson to the 49ers, with Dave Boling's column here.

• The Mariners took two-of-three from Kansas City, with Sunday's win coming mainly due to the pitching of Cha Seung Baek. Here is the Time's story on the game. It look's like Baek has answered our Mariner question from Sunday morning concerning who should replace Jeff Weaver in the rotation. And we don't mean Roger Clemens (sorry Joey).

• The Lakeside High baseball team is ranked No. 1 in the state of Washington's 1A classification, and Mike Vlahovich has a look at the Eagles' undefeated season.

That's it for now. If you have any questions or requests, feel free to leave them here. I'll get to them when I can.
