Lou Piniella will tear out what remains of his hair managing the Cubs, who can find ways to lose that no other team has ever imagined.

Sorry Mike in MO, that was a real gut wrencher for sure. I've got tickets to the rematch in Seattle -- hopefully the game will be as exciting the second time around!

i predict the Sonics make the playoffs this year and get their money to fund Key Arena. this city loves a winner.

Football players in full uniform brawling? Hardly. All that equipment makes it almost impossible to throw an effective punch or become injured by an opposing blow. What a stupid waste of time and energy.

Well I don't care where Lou ends up managing, if it will keep him from being a commentator. After listening to too many of his post-game press conferences, I can tell you that Pinella is not the guy you want to be listening to while watching a game. Why Fox Sports puts him on the air is beyond me.

In a perfect world, Miami would provide some leadership for the first time in their history, and shut down their football program permanently. Then, gradually, other schools would follow, and the NFL could build a minor-league program with their own money on the line instead of the taxpayers and the "schools".

The Sonics getting a bunch of additional investors from Oklahoma means that even if they win the chamnpionship and save a bunch of kittens in a house fire they are still headed to Oklahome next season.

I LOVE Lou as a commentor, but I love him even more as a manager. Like when he walks out onto the field and just grabs 2nd base and throws it.

I miss Sweet Lou.

Nary a Hawk fan spoke trash in anticipation of the big Rams game. I'm guessing that The Bears, Alexander, and the bye week kept peeps here, uh, subdued. The game was a nerve-wracking slopfest, sprinkled with missed opportunities, bonerific penalties and seat-of-the-pants capitalization by both teams. Exciting, yes, but belchily so. It was a battle of mistake-attrition, rather than a marquee-style shoot-out that would demand a good gilding of trash-mouth prior.

It was good to see the Hawks come out and play a strong second half -- their first one of the season! That penultimate spike play at the line of scrimmage could have gone either way, (belch). But with luck falling our way, what better a time to re-welcome to Deion Branch to Seattle.

Message: Seattle don't care about the Sonics anymore.

They're like the girlfriend/boyfriend you dumped who you just want to take the hint the reason you never return their phone calls after saying "well, that's a dealbreaker for me", is it's over.

Likely the best and most honest analysis of yesterday's game I have heard/read so far. What is certain, is that the Seahhawks aren't "there" yet.

Sorry for the radio silence. Yes, that stung big time. And the Mests kicked the S out of the Cardinals to make it a total sucky sports sunday.

Charles> Have fun @ the rematch. Rams-Seahags games are always good.

Oh, yeah, and: 54 fucking yard field goal!??! I thought only Wilkins couls make those.

Posted by Mike in MO | October 16, 2006 3:31 PM

Doesn't the fact that our offense revolves around the field goal suggest there's something wrong with our ability to finish? That, and the fact that we've been outscored on the season, suggest that we're a 9-7, 8-8 kind of team.
