“17” is not a friendly number. Neither is “0”. “8” used to be a great number. But now it’s a “7”.

There will be no math in this post. No, those numbers pretty much summed up the misery of my sports night after a somewhat sad sports day. What do they mean?

17: The number of consecutive losses the Seattle Mariners have endured since July 5th when they were 43-43 (.500 baseball; 2 1/2 games out of 1st place). Enough said.

0: The number of goals scored tonight by the Seattle Sounders in their first game of the CONCACAF Champions League against San Francisco FC of Panama. In their last 2 MLS games, they scored 7 goals total. “0”.

8: The number on the back of Matt Hasselbeck’s uniform for the Seattle Seahawks. It shall never be worn again by him. Reports earlier today stated he would not be re-signed by the Seahawks. It’s the end of an era for Seahawks fans. While I believe most understood the reasoning, by all accounts, when it’s a good guy your team lets go, it makes it a tad bit harder. Seattle fans watched this happen before with former Mariners pitcher Jamie Moyer. To quote: “All good things must come to an end.”. That is the case today for #8, who will now be replaced by:

7: Tavaris Jackson. Or Matt Leinart (unconfirmed at post time). Both wear the number 7. Neither was a starter last year. Neither has been what you would consider effective when they did start. And they are going to replace Matt Hasselbeck. The math does not compute.

I would be remiss if I did not at least say something about my Raiders. I live in Seahawks country so naturally I follow the Seahawks but the Raiders will always be MY team. That said, there wasn’t a whole lot of talk about the Raiders today. Which, if you’re a Raiders fan, (shaking my head as I type this), is really good news. Invariably, when the national media talked about the Raiders it was never really in a good way. So, with news being quiet, I’m declaring it to be a good day for the Raiders. (Please. Try not to ruin my dream for one day. Thank you.)
