Stuff is Happening, Get Out There!
We know, it is still winter out there. Sitting around watching TV is the activity of choice for many of us. After all, what is the alternative? Lots!
Reminder to the entire Puget Sound: Football season is OVER! It is really time to move on.
This morning we had UW Husky baseball head coach on KLAY with our morning man Ty Ray. The Dawgs have four games this weekend against Cal Davis. The games one Friday, two on Saturday and the final Sunday will all be played at Cheney Stadium. A brand new Husky Baseball ball park will open at the UW campus later in March. Saturday the 1:00 game will feature Husky starting pitcher Jeff Brigham. Brigham pitched the Huskies to a 4-1 win earlier in Arizona against Michigan State. Brigham is VERY good and a must see talent. He will soon be a pro pitcher. Get out and see some very good college baseball this weekend. The baseball is good, tickets are affordable and the parking is free!
Want some more affordable non-couch attached sports activity? The boys and girls 16 team basketball tournaments kick off this weekend. Stadium, Bellarmine, Curtis, Lincoln, Foss, Wilson among others have boys teams playing. Puyallup, Bellarmine and Wilson teams are among those is the tournament on the girls side. The games are Friday and Saturday leading to the State finals next week. We are spoiled with top notch high school basketball in our area. Get out and see some. It is the best value sports viewing there is.
Another under appreciated event going on now through the weekend takes place in Federal Way. The PAC-12 swimming and diving championships are in progress at the King County Aquatic Center. PAC-12 swimming and diving is world class. The CAL Bears are winners of three of the past five NCAA championships and feature five Olympians. Get your swimming and diving kids and get out there, this is world class competition in a world class facility.
A last suggestion while you are driving around or even watching any or all of this: Our Mariners start Spring Training games with Friday and Saturday games against San Diego. Sunday the M’s tee it up with the Angels. Except for March 17 games will be played daily through the end of March. So it I OK to get used to the sound of baseball on a daily basis now.
Go take in any or all of the above. You need to get off that couch and this beats cleaning the garage.
