>>Redmon cut and wrong one
I'm one of the many in Spokane that has had the pleasure of watching and getting to know Katelan Redmon. The Seattle Storm waived the Gonzaga and Lewis & Clark High product yesterday. Redmon was a two-time all WCC player and became the fourth Bulldog in school history to be drafted into the WNBA when she was selected 36th overall to the New York Liberty. She played in seven games with the New York Liberty as a rookie last season. And Zag fans know what Seattle has missed out on. Besides her high basketball IQ she brings that IT factor to a team. Every team needs a Redmon on the floor and on the bench. She is a total team player and Seattle must think they have a pretty good team as they also cut third-round pick Jasmine James. She will land on another court. In the meantime I will still wear my one and only WNBA jersey, Redmon's #30 from the Liberty, with pride.
>>Speaking of basketball in Seattle
ESPN.com reports a committee of NBA owners still believes the Kings should not be relocated to Seattle and should remain in Sacramento. According to the report, a final vote on the issue is expected at the owners' meetings in Dallas tomorrow. Chris Hansen has been attempting to buy the Kings and relocate them to Seattle.
>>Mariners Open Series With Yankees
Don't bother me after 4 today! Happy King Felix Day everyone! The Mariners begin a three-game road series with the Yankees this evening. Seattle enters the set with three wins in its last four games. A marquee pitching matchup is on tap, as Felix Hernandez will oppose CC Sabathia. First-pitch is slated for 4:05.
>>I'm the post season hockey guy
I'll admit it - I watch way more hockey in the post season. I can sit and watch literally any sport. Curling even excites me from time to time. But I don't find myself getting excited for regular season hockey. If I catch it on, I'll watch some of it. But in the post season - I can watch any series. What Boston did last night to not only the team in Toronto but to the city of Toronto was simply unbelievable. Bruins are too banged up to advance in the next round, but that comeback win goes down as one of the greatest in history.
