NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Steve Lee weighs in today with another post in our Moments In Time series. Kirk McLean, Roberto Luongo, and Richard Brodeur all had one thing in common, they all backstopped the Canucks to the Stanley Cup Finals and they all came up short of hoisting hockey’s holy grail. When you break down the elements, which netminder should be honored as the Vancouver Canucks all time best goalie?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp made us all jealous a couple weeks ago when he was able to catch up with former Seahawks All-Pro fullback Mack Strong. The definition of a class act, he answered all Alistair’s questions, and wasn’t TOO obnoxious when he beat me him a throwing contest (the difference between a 16-year NFL pro and a sports writer we suppose). Mack weighs in on Super Bowl XL.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Ben Tole weighs in today with another installment in our Moments in time series. He tells us the Sidney Rice 46 yard touchdown catch with 1:18 remaining in the fourth quarter vs. the Patriots has to be not only the single biggest play of the game but probably the single biggest play of the Season. He also enjoyed the Seahawks continuing their dominant display in the second half versus the Cowboys.
NWSB Writer Bryant Knox recaps some of the 2011-12 season’s most memorable moments. The 2011-12 season was one of the more forgettable years in recent memory for fans of the Portland Trail Blazers, but even the most bleak situations have a few fond memories when it comes to NBA basketball. Nicolas Batum set a franchise record, LaMarcus Aldridge took his game to a new level and Brandon Roy made an unexpected return to the Rose Garden Arena.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp tells us his favorite Seahawks TOUCHDOWN in week 6 vs. the Patriots was the Doug Baldwin TD catch. As mentioned, Baldwin falls which mistimed the route poorly, but as the ball is delivered by Russell Wilson he does an excellent job of regaining body position and jumps into the air to catch it with his entire body and keeps control while falling to the ground.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his newest installment of Moments in Time. This week, the Seahawks head to San Francisco for another prime time tilt, this one on Thursday Night Football. With this rivalry getting bigger by the game, the physical Seahawks team will need to avoid what happened to start last season as they started the season in San Francisco. We all know how that one ended.
NWSB Insider and Northwest sports blogger Steve Lee tells us another story in our Moments in time series about the B.C. Lions duo in the booth, Rick Ball, and Giulio Caravatta. With ties to the area for both men, it is only fitting that they ended up working for the hometown football team. Caravatta actually spent some time with the Lions under the dome, while Ball got his start with the WHL and TEAM 1040 am in Vancouver.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp tells us the best Seahawks TOUCHDOWN in week 5 vs. the Panthers was the Golden Tate’s 13 yard catch. With a three wide reciever set, Russell Wilson had options, but Golden Tate was once again his man as the Seahawks scored their only TD on Sunday in the win over Carolina.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with another M’s Week That Was. Intended to be a fun column, with lots of laughs and other good stuff. Normally it will be a top 10 list, a la David Letterman style. In this column, Clinton goes over his top 10 moments of the 2012 Seattle Mariners season, topped off by the farewell to fan favorite and Mariners icon Ichiro Suzuki.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck weighs in today with some thoughts on the Canucks thru the years in a flashback post detailing his top five moments in time. Number One. Canucks vs. Flames. April 10th, 2010. It was also the first time and unfortunately the last time I got to see Rick Rypien fight in person. A fond and great memory Mitch will always have.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the best and worst moments of the Seattle Mariners 2012 season in this love ‘em & hate ‘em. It was a year of highs and lows, that inevitably ended in another losing season for the M’s. From King Felix Hernandez’s perfect game to the Ichiro Suzuki trade deadline, there was plenty to love and hate. Don’t foget the Jesus Montero trade, and Justin Smoak struggling.
