Caleb Porter, Year Three

Let’s be honest. 2014 was a bad year for Caleb Porter. His team badly underachieved, falling from first to sixth place in the Western Conference. They were knocked out in the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League. They couldn’t attack, then they couldn’t defend, and they could absolutely never get their act totally together. […]

Super Bowl – This One Will Be Tense

This column written by Brian Nemhauser of, a partner of Oregon Sports News Seattle fought through the toughest defense in the NFL, and most bitter rival, last season to reach the Super Bowl. They were getting Percy Harvin fully available for the first time all year. Denver was missing key players like Von Miller […]

Is It Game Day Yet?

We’ve made it halfway through the unnecessarily incessant analysis and coverage of the Super Bowl.  It’s right around this time where the media is running out of meaningful things to discuss, so they’re busy conjuring up controversy or filling airtime with the mundane and banal.  I’ve only watched this stuff for a day and already […]

Who Watches Football And Why

Pose the question, “Why do you watch football,” to ten sports fans. You’ll get at least ten different answers that make enough sense to believe them all. The first ten: 10. Why do I watch football? That’s the question? You gotta be kidding me. I watch to see who wins and loses. That’s it. That’s […]

Portland Trail Blazers Week Preview – 1/26

Every NBA week is eventful in its own way, but for the Portland Trail Blazers, it seemed doubly so. You could pack a month’s worth of drama and worry into the last six days in Rip City: LaMarcus Aldridge’s torn left thumb ligament, Nicolas Batum getting shut down to heal that balky right wrist, the […]

Super Bowl XLIX – Using Hate To Heal A Nation

They’re calling it the “hater bowl.” I say it’s the “healer bowl.” So much to grab onto for all the NFL fans of the 30 teams that didn’t make it to the NFL’s ultimate championship. Let’s be honest. If you’re not a fan of either the Seattle Seahawks or the New England Patriots, you’ve got […]

Nicolas Batum

The Clock Is Ticking On Nicolas Batum

It was Blazers 103, Wizards 96 on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at the Moda Center. It was another comeback win for Portland, this one fueled emotionally and physically by LaMarcus Aldridge, playing hurt, and playing on into the foreseeable, if tenuous, future. The message from Aldridge, who wanted to play, and […]

Portland Winterhawks Riding High On The Road And At Home

Perhaps all it took was a 20 hour bus ride to Prince George to refresh the batteries. Granted, it took a 6-2 loss in Kamloops on the way to Prince George, but from there, it has been all Portland Winterhawks. The two Prince George games that saw the Hawks win by a 4-3 Shootout and […]

Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch’s Talent Is Equaled Only By His Immaturity

Marshawn Lynch might be the most violent running back I’ve ever seen play football, and that is absolutely a complement. He flips conventional wisdom on its head, seemingly always delivering, rather than receiving, the blow from defenders. Without him, Seattle doesn’t have two Super Bowl trips with at least one Lombardi Trophy for their troubles. […]
