Jim Caple of ESPN’s Page 2 certainly extends his empathy to Seattle fans in his most recent column. It sure has been difficult to watch all that has gone on. The pirating of the SuperSonics devastated a lot of people in the region; however it hurt me much more to see the Huskies collapse against the likes of Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA.
Nevertheless, the overall Seattle sporting scene is dark right now. (Sonics gone, Mariners terrible again, Huskies football floundering). There’s a saying that goes “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” There’s another one, too, written by writer George Higgins that went: “It was darker than a carload of assholes.”
