The start of the episode elicits memories of Maryland followed by an impressive Zack Greinke statistic before opening the listener mailbox. Next, Mitch gives a rousing endorsement of Seaside, Oregon before venting spleen about the struggling Mariners and their refusal to spend big bucks in free agency. Five guests on today’s show are ten-year NBA veteran and local product Spencer Hawes, Bellevue youth golfer and U.S. Women’s Open qualifier Angela Zhang, and Kraken No-Table crew RJ Eskanos, Darren Brown, and Dylan Travers. “Other Stuff” topics range from the surprise cover model on the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, early predictions on the NFL landing spot for Michael Penix Jr., and the son of an Ann Arbor legend getting fired for ill-advised “likes” on social media.
