Question: Does anyone really miss Port Angeles Speedway?
As I drive by the old site, I can’t help but remember the likes of Jim Seeds, Ron Eaton from Tacoma, the many Canadians who came over almost every Sunday to race and the way driver Monte English used to start in the back of the pack in the super stock races and wind his way through the field to take the checkered flag.
Yeah, I miss it, a little bit.
What’s wrong here?
Is there something wrong with Ichiro Suzuki? He’s way below .300, he doesn’t seem to swing with authority and he’s not beating out those slow rollers to shortstop.
Could he be ailing? Don’t know, fans, but do know he’s going to miss his first All-Star game, because there are many more deserving outfielders at this point in the season and if he doesn’t come out of this big June swoon, it might be his last year, although he’s “earning” $17 million this season and is due for another $17 mil next season.
We’ll check the Mariners at mid-season next week.
