Determination, motivation….Ryan Grant.

I Wanna Sext You Up

You’re telling me you wouldn’t jump on a chance to sext the lovely Jenn Sterger? That’s what I thought.

Sexting, it’s everyone’s new favorite word, the fad is sweeping the nation. And we have Brett Favre to thank for it. This Favre/Jenn Sterger thing has been made into far too big of a deal. The only reason people care is because the three things that people love most in the world, are all wrapped into one; football, sex, and big breasted women.

Everyone needs to stop treating sexting as the worst thing in the world and just roll with it. There are bigger fish to fry out there. Sexting is here to stay, people are going to send nude pictures of themselves to others, live with it.

Look at it this way, if you opened a text message, and staring back at you was an attractive member of the opposite sex with nothing on, would you be upset? My point exactly.

Okay, so what Brett Favre did was definitely creepy, gross, juvenile, and a little funny, but it’s being made out to be a bigger thing than it really is.

Jenn Sterger is not a PR person, or a reporter, or whatever her title was with the Jets, she is a sex object. And there’s nothing wrong with that, in fact kudos to her for being able to get to where she is. It’s no crime to use what you got to your advantage.

What are NFL teams thinking, hiring gorgeous women, who are known for selling sex, to work in an environment with 50+ testosterone filled athletes? If she’s not there for the players to gawk over and hit on, then why put her in a position where you know that is going to happen?

Bottom line is, the Jets hired Sterger because she was a sex object, and then we blame Favre because he treated her like one. I’m not condoning sexual harassment by any means, but can’t you see where Favre might have been a little thrown.

Sport Stop Top: Why I Love The 2010-11 Seahawks

Making lists is great fun. It allows people to make bold, certifiably insane statements that people don’t pick on you for because that statement was made through a list, and lists are awesome. For example, if I told you I was in love with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, you would all be sending me hateful comments and emails, so I won’t. But if I made a list of the most desirable women and presented it as so…

  1. Elisabeth Hasselbeck
  2. Brooklyn Decker
  3. Rihanna
  4. Erin Andrews
  5. The girl from #701 in my freshman dorm

…I would probably get away with it, because everyone appreciates a good list.

So every once in a while, I’ll make up some lists to post to the site, to give readers a change of pace from the usual articles. And what better way to kick off the new Sport Stop Top by making a list on why we love this years edition of the Seahawks.

Huskies Continue To Dissapoint

In a season that was supposed to be special, a season we thought would be different, a season that would usher in a return to prominence for a Husky program that had fallen so far, the Huskies have failed to deliver.

After a thrilling 35-34 double-overtime win against Oregon State last weekend, all of us expected this team to show us something this weekend in Arizona. What they showed us was a team that has no intention of being competitive week in and week out in the Pac-10.

Arizona was without their starting QB, forced to start their back-up, who couldn’t figure out WSU’s last place defense last Saturday. It was the kind of break the Huskies needed to take this team to a place they haven’t been in years. A win in the desert and the Huskies could have moved to 3-1 in Pac-10 play for the first time since 2001. They would have been only two wins away from the bowl appearance they covet so much.

However, in what has become typical UW fashion, the Dawgs squandered any fortune the college football bestowed upon them, and failed to even compete in a game that meant so much to their season. Continue reading

Video of the Week – 10/18

I decided to add a video box to the site (right side below the facebook badge). I’ll post one of my favorite videos every week. They’ll almost always have something to do with Seattle sports, but sometimes it could be a music video, or just whatever I’m in the mood for.

For the first installment we have the “8 block” video. Nate Robinson brother is a rapper and this is his song. I love this video for the sole purpose that Nate-Rob is in it, dancing around like the clown we all know and love.

Enjoy!

Did You Hear? The Mariners Hired Eric Wedge

Yeah we all know the Mariners hired some dude with an awesome mustache named Eric Wedge. Wedge is a no BS kind of a guy. He gets straight to the point and is all about business. If you don’t perform or you don’t pay attention to detail, your not an Eric Wedge-type player (bye-bye Milton Bradley). He managed the Cleveland Indians for seven years, from 2002-2009, taking them to the playoffs in 2005 and 2007. Wedge also becomes the seventh man to manage the Mariners in the last eight years.

The question is do we really care? To be honest, I’m not really sure that I do. I love the Mariners, I have no problem with Eric Wedge, but I am sick and tired of getting excited about moves we make off the field, only to be an embarrassment on the field. Do we really attribute our teams failures and success’ to our managers. A year ago we thought Don Wakamatsu was the greatest manager since Lou Pinella, then he got fired 9 months later.  Managers in baseball don’t matter as much as you would think. I’m not going to get excited about some hire in October until I see some results in an actual season.

I’m sick of hearing words from the Mariners front office, promises of building a better team, telling us things will turn around. I want to SEE things turn around, I want to see it in the AL West standings and out there on the field, not a bunch of empty promises that don’t get backed up.

Eric Wedge possesses qualities that could help this team become better. He wears his passions on his sleeve, and he’s loyal as can be to his players. For how bad the team was last year under Wakamatsu, it makes sense to hire a person that is on the opposite spectrum, as Wedge is. But really, when it boils down to it, will the players be able to perform at a high level under Wedge? I don’t know, and until that happens, this hire is just another way of the Mariners TELLING us they will be better. It’s time to SHOW us!

* Here’s a link to an interview Wedge did with KJR this morning. Scroll down a little ways to find it.
