Talking Points: Washington’s o-fer



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


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.

Throw in the Mariners and WNBA’s Storm, and Seattle alone was 1-5 in games played Saturday-Sunday.

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


Let’s skate two, anyone?

Preseason anything is hard to get excited about.

The NHL’s Florida Panthers and Nashville Predators believe a doubleheader will help fix that. They have scheduled two games Monday in Sunrise, Fla., in what’s believed to be a first-of-its-kind event for the NHL.
