Seattle has become something of a half-assed sports town, and that half happens to be the first. On Sunday, Nov. 4, both the Seahawks and the Sonics were competitive going into the second halves of games against, respectively, the Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Clippers. Late during both games, the other club pulled ahead. Sound familiar? Recall that the Washington Huskies football team actually led national power Ohio State (ranked first in polls the past few weeks) at halftime and were tied with USC late in the second quarter. The Sonics, during their first three games, have been blown away late, which is why they're 0-3 heading into Sacramento Tuesday, Nov. 6, on an apparent farewell tour that may end in Oklahoma City to start the 2008-'09 season. As for the Hawks, a 12-point halftime lead in Cleveland had the homer KIRO-AM (710) announcers braying about a game they seemed to feel was safely in Seattle's win column. Maybe this was because the Seahawks had been behind at the half during their three others losses this season, making them the one local team this fall that may not even be good enough to be called "half-assed."
