Teeing Off: The Floyd getting in the way of the Hawks
The Joe Floyd/Ravn Alaska Winter Classic Basketball Tournament is a mouth full to say, and write. I’ll simply shorten it to The Floyd. The Floyd has been a holiday tradition in Kodiak since 1972, making it the longest-running high school hoops tournament in the state. This marks my ninth time covering the Emerald Island’s biggest sporting event. I was overwhelmed at first. Try putting together a 16-page program as...

Teeing Off: Johnson should go in as a Mariner
To me, Randy Johnson is the greatest baseball player ever to wear a Seattle Mariners uniform. Yes, there was Ken Griffey Jr., Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner and Ichiro. But, nobody sported a better mullet than the Big Unit. That is why he gets my vote. There must have been nothing scarier to a hitter than a 6-foot-10 pitcher, with hair flowing from the cap, starring you down. Just ask John Kruk, who got a look at John...

Teeing Off: Gizmo takes aim at playoff predictions
The NFL’s second season starts Saturday with Wild Card Weekend. It also gives Gizmo a chance to redeem himself from a horrible Week 17 performance. The canine must have not been feeling well, as he incorrectly picked all three of his games last week. That dropped his season record to 18-21. Thanks Santa. Gizmo was bouncing with enthusiasm when I laid down the picks in front of him Thursday. Maybe it was just the s...

Teeing Off: Wilson deserves Pro Bowl slot
Russell Wilson not being selected to the Pro Bowl is like having a Christmas without Santa Claus. Tough to digest. One of the most exciting players in the National Football League was omitted off the 2015 Pro Bowl roster, a list of players compiled by coaches, players and fans that was released earlier this week. Serious? What fan doesn’t want to watch Wilson? As a Seahawks fan, I get the pleasure to watch the 5-f...
