Teeing Off: Rest is not a bad thing
Sunday is going to be weird. It will be the first time in three seasons that the Seattle Seahawks are not playing in the NFC Championship game. Gizmo doesn’t know what to do, and neither do I. Maybe we will watch bowling. He likes Jason Belmonte. I’m a Rhino Page fan. Chances are we both will be viewing the title matches, it just will not be the same. The 12s have been spoiled the past few seasons. Add another few...

TEEING OFF: Time to be balanced
I’ve been accused of not being balanced in this space — I’m not giving enough love to the other pets that live in the Clarkston apartment. I’m sorry. I’ll try to do better in the coming months. In truth, I’m one-sided when it comes to writing about the NFL. I have been challenged to breakdown this week’s four divisional games and not just focus on the Seahawks. In order to be more balanced, I will give the reader(...

City league co-ed hockey debuts tonight
The puck is going to drop on a new city league sport today. At 7:30 p.m., the inaugural city league hockey game will begin at the Baranof Ice Rink. The co-ed league is the brainchild of Tim McGuyer, the rink’s manager. “We are trying to get a little more organization with our local hockey here,” he said. There will still be pickup games for men and women four nights a week, but league play will take over the ice f...

Teeing Off: Escaping the cold
Whew. That was close. When Minnesota was driving down the field for the last time in Sunday’s NFC Wild Card game, I dropped to the floor. Gizmo walked over and consoled me. We both knew Seattle’s season was seconds away from being over. However, Seattle fans should be accustomed to expect the unexpected. And the unexpected happened. In the closing seconds, Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh shanked a 27-yard field goal ...

Prete earns top billing in Big Buck contest
Patience paid off for Dustin Prete. Nearly three weeks before the end of hunting season on Kodiak Island, Prete, 34, bagged a massive buck that earned him top billing in the 2015 Eric Lochman Big Buck contest, sponsored by Big Ray’s. The Sitka black-tailed deer he shot weighed approximately 175 pounds and scored a 119 3/8 — scores are determined by measurements of a buck’s rack, and judging criteria includes the a...
