While I have no scientific proof to qualify the following as laws of Seattle sports, ample evidence exists to suggests they are as certain as Newton’s laws of motion.
- A Seattle sports franchise will not win a championship (I know about the 79 Sonics, but things that happened when I was an infant might as well have not happened at all).
- Seattle gets three professional sports teams, no more, no less (note the sports gods took our Sonics as they bestowed the Sounders).
- One of those teams will always be good.
- The other two will not be good.
Based on these laws, and the current records of the Mariners and Sounders, things are looking up for the Seahawks.
