Are The Portland Thunder Here To Stay?

Saturday night, the Portland Thunder played the final game of the regular season of their inaugural season. The Spokane Shock were in town and showed the Thunder what they could aspire to be. The orange-clad Shock fans were at the game in force. With this being the first season the Thunder have been in existence, […]

FootGolf Is Kicking Off In Oregon

But what is FootGolf? It’s essentially what it sounds like—golf with your feet. The ball and cup are scaled up, and the length of the course is scaled down. The distance from tee to hole ranges anywhere from 70-200 yards, par 3 to par 5. Like golf, the lowest score wins. Also like golf, it’s […]

Portland Timbers Confound, Entertain, And Win In Montreal 3-2

This act was a good one: Get drawn into a wild, rain-soaked, first-half shootout with a last place Montreal Impact team starring Futty Danso, go behind, come back to take the lead with a penalty, concede before the break, and lean on another moment of magic from Diego Valeri to win it late. Apparently, that’s […]

Tom Cable May Have A Blind Spot

Column written by Brian Nemhauser of HawkBlogger.com, a partner of Oregon Sports News Let me start by saying Tom Cable is one of my favorite coaches on the Seahawks. He stopped the never-ending turnstile of offensive line coaches and instilled a toughness the Seahawks had not seen on the line since Walter Jones, Steve Hutchinson […]

Interview With Portland Timbers Captain Will Johnson

Last week, I was fortunate enough to be able to interview Portland Timbers captain Will Johnson about the burgeoning new sport “footgolf”, his involvement with regional sports drink maker Golazo, the Canadian national team, growing up in Liverpool, and what it’s like to be a captain of a soccer team. Here follows an edited version […]

St Louis Rams v Seattle Seahawks

The Numbers Say Beast Mode Should Report To Camp

Friday saw the start of Seattle Seahawks training camp with the glaring absence of starting running back Marshawn Lynch, who is holding out, presumably, for more money or an extension.  While the sudden retirement of wide receiver Sidney Rice frees up some cap space, the Seahawks, so far, don’t seem inclined to move that savings […]

Will This Be A Down Year For The Seattle Seahawks?

The Seattle Seahawks have every reason to be excited during this offseason. They finished the season with a 16-3 record, never lost a game by more than 7, and were on the winning side of one of the most lopsided Super Bowl victories ever against a team that had just put together one of the […]

Crimes Of Aggression Cost Portland Thunder But Deliver A Message

First of all, let’s give credit where it is due. The Arizona Rattlers took advantage of a large number of Portland miscues to right their foundering ship with a 65-55 win last Sunday afternoon. Rattler hall of fame QB Nick Davila did what he does and making few mistakes despite another fierce showing by the […]

Ray Rice

Ray Rice’s Punishment Is An Insult To Football Fans

Amazing what having a nice chat with your boss can do for your job.  According to reports, because Ray Rice had a “good” meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, his suspension for domestic abuse and third-degree assault is only two games and a $58,000 fine.  Rice will also be in a diversion program to avoid […]

One More Sunday – Football Is Almost Back

We’ve all been there. That mixed-bag feeling of being excited that training camps are opening, and the realization that you’re actually excited to hear that training camps are opening. But fear not, fellow football fan, for you are not alone. There is a nation of rabid college and NFL fans that are have been getting […]

Field Of Second Chances – The 1994 Montreal Expos

Dr. Archibald “Moonlight” Graham: We just don’t recognize life’s most significant moments while they’re happening. Back then I thought, “Well, there’ll be other days.” I didn’t realize that that was the only day. There is a scene in the 1989 movie Field of Dreams where Ray Kinsella, played by Kevin Costner, goes back in time […]
