Wednesday Morning Skate: Sleepless Rumors in Seattle

Otto Greule Jr

Apparently some guy on Seattle Radio the other day said that the NHL was pushing for expansion into the Seattle market. Which makes sense, considering their rabid support for their beloved Sounders. Seriously, if you haven't been to a Sounders game I suggest you check it out next time you're in town. Heck of a crowd. Maybe it's just that I'm used to soccer crowds looking like the 5k that turn out to Revs games (and bless those who do!) but, again, one of the more fun sports crowds I've been a part of.

So here's my master plan for Seattle: Go the European route and call them Sounders Hockey Club. Dress 'em up in Xbox green and co-market the heck out of it. Get the Emerald City Supporters in on the process early. Get a Sounders Star on skates and a hockey guy playing soccer. they both have Swedes, im pretty sure.Seattle sports fans are ready for a national hockey league team. Give them one.
