First sweep of the season. If they sweep the Sox in the home opener series I’ll start to rethink my opinion of them. Then again if the Mariners get swept by the Sox, which is more likely, well...
I always thought opinions and expectations was a big part of sports. Sort of like politics but much safer. I’m a baseball fan first and a Mariners fan second. I’ll watch their games, bitch about the shitty announcers, blame the second rate management and ownership when they lose. If they win I’ll eat crow and give credit where it’s due. For now, a two game winning streak on the line, I think I’m safe.Opinions and expectations can ruin the enjoyment of watching sports.
It is what it is.
Sounds like when Ron Fairly "Obvious" was doing Mariners games and would point out similar lines of extreme obviousness.."You know, Dave, right there, if he had run a little faster he might have gotten there quicker!""it's gonna come down to who scores more runs"
I live west of Olympia, so I go to Tacoma Rainier games, agree with others, it is brutal heading into King County.The worst part for me is just going to downtown Seattle. The traffic, parking, and prices, are not worth it for me anymore. I can no longer support the insane salaries for the players and owners. I LOVE watching baseball but avoid going to the rapidly deteriorating Seattle downtown area now.
