Bracket Wager & Jimmy Graham Trade

This week we discussed the recently released NCAA Tournament bracket and our thoughts on some potential cinderella teams.
Also, how far will second seeded Gonzaga advance? Are Justin's Tar Heels good enough to win it all? Will anyone beat Kentucky? We answer these questions and more.

We also set the terms for this year's bracket wager. Justin was happy with what he came up with for Daniel until Daniel came up with a disproportionally horrific penalty for Justin. The stakes have never been higher!

Finally, we discussed the Seahawks' big trade for Jimmy Graham. We don't hate it, but we're not as excited as most people. We'll tell you why.

Interview With WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese

This week we interviewed Mike Colbrese, who is in charge of day-to-day operations of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, the governing body of high school sports in the state of Washington.

We asked him about the structure of the association, the decision to switch to an 8-team state basketball tournament, the steps that are being taken to improve the pairings in the regional round, and where dissatisfied parents and fans can go to have their voice heard.

WIAA: Down With the Regional Round!

This week we recapped the regional round of hoops for our Twin Harbors teams. The second-ranked Montesano girls lost to third-ranked Lynden Christian in a ridiculously stupid regional matchup. The Mary M Knight girls advanced to the state tourney with a regional round win.

We spent a great deal of time discussing our thoughts on the WIAA and the implementation of the single-elimination regional round.
We also brought up some ideas on how the system could be fixed.

We wrapped up with some Seattle Mariners talk, and discussed the MLB's new rules to improve the pace of play.
