Love, Basketball and the Philippines

The latest from the NW Asian Weekly. Rafe Bartholomew’s newest book, I highly recommend, about the love Filipinos have for hoops.  The fact that Manny Pacquiao balls to get ready for fights tells you something about how much people love hoops.

Mariners season goes “up in Smoak”

First LeBron. Now Lee.

Thankfully, the supsense of today’s sports transaction was surprising rather than scripted. Cliff Lee is traded within the division to the Texas Rangers for a young up and comer and 3 minor leaguers.

No matter what the Mariners do, the talent they trade for (Lee), sign (Richie Sexson) or draft (ARod, Griffey) cannot bring Seattle a World Series title. Is the 206 as bad as Cleveland.  Just a note, the last champions in this city have been the women’s team.  The Husky Softball team and the Seattle Storm (btw, the Storm are good this season).
