We’re toasting to a Peltoncast MVP that’s gone missing and pouring one out after Sam Haggerty’s season-ending injury before saluting the unlikely heroes from the Mariners taking their first two games in the Bronx, looking at why the Storm are off to a slow start and breaking down Great Osobor following Danny Sprinkle to UW from Utah State.

Tristan might look like Leo Messi and Ryan Gosling, but the Peltoncast MVP contender sounds like somebody who’s excited about the return of Julio Rodriguez’s power and the start of the most anticipated season in WNBA history. Plus our search for Seattle’s best cookie takes us on the Fauntleroy ferry (sort of) and we preview UW softball heading on the road for the NCAA tournament.

The Seattle swoon experienced a false spring over the weekend with the Sounders winning big, but the only consistent winner in the Seattle sports scene is the team that’s already headed to the lottery. We debate again what to make of the M’s slow start after trying the cookies (and crumble) at Snohomish Pie Co. as part of our search.
