Mike Gastineau is filling in for Softy as his vacation continues, bringing a more balanced and laid back approach to sports. Those of us who grew up in Seattle spend a lot of time reflecting fondly on the 1995 Mariners team, but many people don't get why we celebrate a team that didn't even make the World Series. It would be nice if the team could give us some new fond memories. The Thunder are unraveling, and nothing could make us in Seattle happier. It's been an underwhelming decade for a team with so much talent, but the same could be said for the Sonics in the 1990's. The Oakland A's took out a front page ad in the Perth, Australia newspaper, but it didn't go as planned.
