What’s the buzz from the world of sports? Here are some items that will have people talking:

1

The state of Washington went 0-for-the-weekend in football.

The Seattle Seahawks, Washington, Washington State, Eastern Washington, Central Washington, University of Puget Sound, Pacific Lutheran and Whitworth … all lost.

The only winner? The Seattle Sounders FC. And their three goals Saturday outscored the Seahawks’ and Mariners’ total on Sunday.
