Mirage Appears over Seattle’s Sporting landscape…

July 11th, 2019 · No Comments

As previously mentioned, here’s that long awaited story Y’all have been Holdin’ your Breaths for… Breathe, you’re turnin’ Blue, and it Ain’t even Seahawks Blue Thursday yet; Hya!

And with Thee 1st Pick Overall, Sportyblog’s El Senor Scribe Touchdown Tommy Selects, Uhm? Y’all do still remember this year’s National Football League’s Draft, Righto?

And without further Adu, Drum-roll please,

Tuh-Duh!

STEEE-RIKE!

Yusei Kikuchi

HA-HA! Betcha Y’all Didn’t See that 95mph Fastball Ah-Coming, Eh? Especially since we’re All Ah-wash’ in where those Hugely Overpaid National Basketball Association All Star Playahs’ will land? Like Yuhs know Kevin Durant, whom I’m still pretty certain was the former Seattle Super Sonics final Draft Pick.

But I’m trying to focus upon those Boys ‘O Summer right now, a la Baseball, since I think it’s almost time for Major League Baseball’s All Star game, for which I’m also pretty certain once again, our lowly Seattle Mariners are without representation; Sigh.

As Kikuchi is my new Numero Uno Seattle Mariners Baseball Player, since they traded my previous No. 1 Pick, Thee Big Maple’ to those Dastardly Yankees; BASTARDOES!

Which I suppose makes my choice even more Karmic since it was the anniversary of ex-Seattle Mariners pitcher James Paxton’s No Hitter when Major League Baseball rookie Kikuchi flirted with his own No Hitter in The Big Apple! With the Mariners crushing New York 10 to Somme-thun’ ruther when I began scribblin’ this Sportyblog story.

Rookie Pitcher Stifles Yankees

Yet it hasn’t been All Sunshine ‘N Rainbows for Yusei, since the last time I paid any Attenzione to him was when watching my second MLB Baseball game of the year, when Snowbyrd MJ’ was in town a few weeks ago. As think it was vs. the lowly Kansas City Royals?Yet Kikuchi immediately got into trouble in the first inning, albeit his team-mates didn’t help him any, first dropping a sure out, and then when the Catcher missed the Tag at Thee Plate, as Yusei was sweating profusely after falling behind 2-0.

Then Snowbyrd MJ’ told me Kikuchi had just hung his head in a low bow ‘O Disgust upon removing his Ball-cap after having a Home Run Hit off him giving KC a 6-0 lead Me Thinks? Before we elected to turn off Thy Telie’.

Meanwhile it’s even older News that arguably one of the Mariners Greatest ever Players mostly known simply as Ichiro has finally retired from playing the sport he so loved, after making two final appearances in his Home Country during Seattle’s exhibition games, where ironically, Kikuchi was making his Major League Debut.

Ichiro Suzuki to be Instructor to Mariners, Tacoma Rattlers after Retiring

As I find it Uber Hilarious that I know the answer to my own Ichiro Suzuki Trivia Questione, while another Family member who’s always right, is actually wrong over claiming that Ichiro has won a World Series!Since I’ve maintained for years, even though he requested being traded to New York to play for a Contendah’. The Yankees never made it to the World Series during his brief tenure between 2012-14 in NYC.

With their only American League Playoffs during this period coming in 2012 when losing the series to the Detroit Tigers.

As it’s extremely Funny to Mwah since I’m not only Not a “Stick ‘N Ball” Fan, but I also absolutely abhorrer Baseball! Which is almost as exciting as watching; Err for Mwah, listening to Paint Dry!

Yet certainly Ichiro will be selected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on his very first Ballot, and presumably will enter the Hall as a Seattle Mariner.

Now if only the Muh-Nuers’ could snap the Sport’s longest losing Streak. As Seattle currently hold the record for the four Heavies’, nee Professional Sports, aka the NFL, NBA, MLB and National Hockey League Franchise longest Playoffs Drought, which Seattle will presumably extend another year to 17 by season’s end; CRIKEYS!

While lastly, it was Good ‘Ol John, “Not Bo Duke!” Schneider of the Seattle Seahawks initially giving me the impetus for this Stumblin’, Fumblin’ ‘N Bumblin’ Sportyblog tome. When listening to some riveting Sports News via my NFB Newsline for The Blind Telephone service.

As I chuckled over somebody writing how Schneider was probably having Night Sweats over the fear of initially having only four Draft Picks in this year’s selection entering the week prior to the Draft, before he got the Ball rollin’ by trading Frank Clark to KC, which netted Seattle another Pick, upping Thar any to five, Pre-Draft.

As Seattle wound-up with a robust 11 Draft Picks after Schneider Wheeled ‘N Dealed a multitude of Dance Moves of Trading Down to acquire more picks that would make ‘Ol “Trader Bob” (Whitsitt) of past Seahawks lore plumb Proud!

Meet the 2019 Seahawks Draft Class

Since before Y’all know it, it’ll be time for the NFL’s Pre-season, whilst I didn’t even scribble nothin’ about Seattle’s other Football team, the Sounders FC whom re-acquired Jovan Jones from Germany in some of their early season roster moves.Or that the Seattle Sea Walls won Thar second consecutive Professional Rugby Championship; Ooh, Ooh, Who Let The Dawgs’ Out?

RUf-RUF! Now Somebody Pass Me a Cheeseburger as Good ‘Ol Stevie Gee-Tar’ Miller would say. Preferably a Dick’s Drive-in Cheeseburger; Hya!
