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.

  1. 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).
  2. Seattle gets three professional sports teams, no more, no less (note the sports gods took our Sonics as they bestowed the Sounders).
  3. One of those teams will always be good.
  4. 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.
