Fresh Prints



Thank you to all the folks that came out to the show last week. Great to see familiar faces and commiserate with other diehard Seattle sports fans.

You can now order prints on Throwbacks NW online store here. I'll be offering additional sizes and images next week as well so check back then.

Special note to Mr. Simmons: prints of your "man-crush" are available at custom large-output sizes, suitable for posting on say, a door or ceiling. Please inquire at: sonicsblog AT gmail dot com. Thank you.

R.I.P. Dave Niehaus


I think I can speak for everyone at Supersonicsoul when I say that a little piece of my childhood just died: R.I.P. Dave Niehaus.

Ballmer makes his move

"The 'Ballmer' is in MY court, now! Get it? BALLmer?"

So, Steve Ballmer just sold off about two billion in stocks this week. Let me repeat that: the man who tried to buy the Seattle Supersonics a couple of years ago and has supposedly been looking to buy an NBA team to bring back to the Northwest suddenly has TWO BILLION DOLLARS in cash on hand. I wonder what he's going to buy with all that money?

R.I.P. The Enforcer


Former Seattle Supersonic and all around bad-ass Maurice Lucas passed away over the weekend.  As much as I loved the Payton/Kemp/Karl era, the 1987 Supersonics team was probably my favorite team, and Lucas provided some much-needed muscle for his shoot first, play defense later teammates.

Casey Holdahl has a great article about Lucas at http://www.iamatrailblazersfan.com/, so be sure to check it out.
