Seattle Sports Scene: A horrific loss, A big Win and A no contest
Focusing on just one Seattle Sports team this week would be a miss carriage of justice as they say. Yes we will have a new President in the White House on January 21st . Before then believe me and you there will be plenty of fruitless litigation. In honor of this complete waste of time by certain individuals in our country we will use a court theme to describe a crazy week in the Seattle Sports Scene. The argument set forth is that the Seattle Seahawks have the worst defense in the NFL and as a result quarterback Russell Wilson has to play a perfect game each week if the team is to have any chance of winning.
I submit for you exhibit A. Last week the Seattle Seahawks were bruised, battered and pumelled in a humbling 44-34 loss to the New York Jets The Seahawks defense gave up 420 offensive yards. Only 34 of those yards were on the ground. I submit exhibit B to bolster my opening arguments. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson hit 11 times ,sacked five times, and had two fumbles and two interceptions. Pure factual evidence here. The saving grace for the Seahawks was that the Arizona Cardinals loss to the Miami Dolphins kept the Hawks in first place halfway through the season. Closing arguments finished we rest our case.
The Seattle Sounders erupted for four second half goals on their way to a 4-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes who also scored in the second half. The contest was the last of the regular season. The Sounders MLS defending Champion finished second in the Western Conference and will now host LAFC on Tuesday November 24th at CenturyLink Field. Sufficient evidence for the jury to concur with our argument of the Seattle Sounders will repeat at MLS Champions.
The no contest continuance of the case if you will went to the Washington Huskies football who’s game with the California Golden Bears in Berkley was cancelled. Turns out several of the Cal players turned states evidence after being diagnosed with Covid-19. A bitter disappoint for the Husky players who were preparing to play their first game in over a year. Husky head coach Jimmy Lake said the players took the cancellation in stride and quickly turned their attention to Saturdays home with the Oregon State Beavers. With that being the case we ask for a continuance on this case.
