GROZ MAIL When Groz is gone, Gas bascially tables Groz with Gasmails. But when Gas is gone, Groz lets the voicemails fly. And it just so happened that today was one of those days. Thanks for the "Sonics Special Delivery," Groz!

WENT FISHIN'My buddy The Fish invited me on his show to talk about "SuperSonics 30" and was really doin' it up with old Sonics music and play-by-play. In fact, Fish dug the concept so much, he's goin' to hold it down for me at Sporty's Beef & Brew in Everett.
SPORTS SATURDAY? I've had over a hundred, on-air conversations with John Clatyon. But they were all on 950 KJR's Sports Saturday with John Clayton. Today, I called The John Clayton Show on 710 ESPN. In the words of the Seattle Mariners, "A new day. A new way."

SCHOOLIN' B & S I wanted to congratulate the Professor on his new radio home 710 ESPN, by calling the Brock & Salk Show. "Mysteriously" I couldn't hear John Clayton and consequently didn't get to speak with him. But if get cut off speaking to the Professor, who better to speak for you than, the Professor?
DREW'S REALITY "You vote for a president; you vote for mayor. I don't know why you shouldn't be able to vote for the general manager of your local sports team. Not only are we letting them burn down the castle, but we're giving them pitchforks and torches to do it." CONTINUED>>>
COMPLICIT COMMISH I Almost 15 years ago, the decision of the MLB commissioner to cancel the World Series pushed me right to the edge. Fast forward and the "Steroid Era" is easily rewound right back to that decision. Yet the focus is constantly on the players who were merely taking "blind eye orders" from the top to revive the game.
ALL-STAR BREAK On October 29, 2008, I began the "Sonics MIA Campaign." I've dealt with printers, talked to so-called "hardcore Sonics fans," pitched Lower Queen Anne businesses, contacted Save Our Sonics and reached out to Sports Radio. From a Sports Fan Activist perspective, it's been an "odd-yssey" of conflicting interests and constrasting objectives.
Wait until you see my documentary on Seattle's MIA season.
PLAYOFF TIME I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemly swear, to force the BCS institute a playoff system. Wouldn't that have been sweet? We have a plan that works within the framework of the existing BCS system; making the four bowls the opening round of an eight team playoff. As the Point Man of the FANS REVOLUTION, I solemly swear to move this agenda forward and I have the "force."
SUPERSONICS 30! Thirty years to-the-day, I was the only one in Seattle throwing a party to celebrate the Seattle Sonics Championship. And of all of the Sonics fans who showed (I'm REALLY TRIPPIN' about those who didn't), who better to have on video, than the BIGGEST Sonics fan?
SEATTLE CRUMBS Dave,
Thank you for returning my call today. As discussed, the “Seattle Supersonics Limited Edition” commemorative t-shirt offered on Supersonics30.com uses NBA trademarks without authorization. To summarize our discussion, you have agreed to immediately cease all sales of the unauthorized shirt in order to resolve this matter. Unfortunately we are unable to grant your request to continue to offer the shirt until Monday, June 1st.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation.

MANNY, SMANNY! The issue isn't whether or not Manny Ramirez should be allowed to play in the All-Star Game. The issue is, when will Bud Selig be forced to resign for cancelling the '94 World Series and long is he going to be allowed to hide behind players like Manny Ramirez? Baseball fans don't need to be "saved from ourselves," according to Mike Greenberg. Baseball fans need to be saved from the commissioner!
WITH JC & KC Since at first I didn't succeed, I tried calling John Clayton on the Kevin Calabro Show. The Voice of the Soincs has always been a favorite of mine and I'm looking forward to regular calls to KC. And the first one, I figured, was a perfect opportunity to "bust a couple of chops for being scooped."
RESTRICTED FREE AGENT The closer 710 ESPN Seattle got to its April 6 launch date, the more speculation grew about John Clayton. John Clayton is ESPN Royalty. John Clayton is a Hall of Famer. John Clayton is the Professor of the NFL. And John Clayton hosted Sports Saturday on 950 KJR for 15 long, loyal years. But when Kevin Calabro broke the news, all the speculation was over.
COMPLICIT COMMISH II Ten years after the commissioner ordered an NBA lockout. there can be no doubt that the 1999 NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement created "sports inflation" that reverberated across the entire league and the fallout is even more evident today.
10 YEARS LATER! "X marks the spot" and the 10th consecutive year of WeTheFans.com's 1999 launch. Each year this website is on the Internet, sports fans everywhere are closer to being represented at the collective bargaining table of sports.
LIGHTNING RODFirst there was the cancellation of the 1994 World Series. Strike one! Then there was "Chicks dig the long ball." Strike two!! Now the biggest star in the game coppin' to steriod use. Strike three!!!
