Winning…At what cost?

It’s not whether you win or lose. It’s how you play the game. From P.E. to peewee football to little league baseball, this is what we’re taught when we’re young. In addition to physical skills, some of the biggest things sports and athletics teach us are hard work, perseverance, sportsmanship, teamwork and fair play. Or, […]

Seattle girl in Dodgertown

As I mentioned last week, I was in L.A. for the 2010 AAJA national convention. Big baseball fan that I am, one of the highlights of my trip was organizing an outing with fellow AAJAers to a Dodgers game while down there. The game was Aug. 6 against the Washington Nationals. I’ve never been to a […]

Let the games begin!

The Mariners’ season starts on the road, but the first home games are less than a month away. So, needless to say, I’m extremely excited! I’ve talked to my dad and I’m trying to finalize plans to go to a game that first week (he doesn’t know this yet). To get myself pumped, I looked […]

I’ll take home runs over touchdowns any day

The Kid is back!

Mariners fans of the 1990s rejoice as Ken Griffey Jr. returns to Seattle. After a dismal season, the return of number 24 could be a sign of a return to the Mariners’ days of old. One could only hope. I can’t really go into this very much right now since I’m at work but I […]

The best things Sammi said in 2008 (according to her)

Another year is coming to a close and that calls for a moment of reflection and introspection. So, in true journalist form, I’ve done a little backtracking and have looked back on what I’ve written since I started this blog back in April. In a moment (or two…or three) of self horn-tooting, I’ve picked out […]
