Sunday Morning Update: Leaving Husky Stadium Early, Kelly in Contention, Hammel Ready to Go, Hus

October 11th, 2009 by cstark

* OK, count me among the fans who hoofed it out of Husky Stadium Saturday night with about four minutes left. My buddy and I walked out the gates just as Arizona was kicking its final field goal to put the Wildcats up 33-21. The game was over, at least it seemed that way. You can imagine our surprise when we turned the car radio on a few minutes later. Stuck in traffic in the U district, we shook our heads as the Dawgs pulled it out. I plan to write more about this later.

* Four early birdies lifted CK grad Troy Kelly into a share of the lead at the Nationwide Tour’s Chattanooga Classic. I just checked and  he’s still 4 under par, but he’s 2 strokes back and he’s got seven holes left. Follow him here. KELLY UPDATE: After a bogey on No. 13, Kelly birdied Nos. 14 and 15 to move back into sole possession of second. He’s two strokes back of leader Chris Byrla of Canada, who has seven holes left.

* The Rockies and Phillies were snowed out Saturday night, but they’ll try again tonight (TBS, 7 p.m.). Jason Hammel’s still scheduled to pitch for Colorado. Here’s a couple stories about South Kitsap grad. The first one from the Philadelphia Inquirer. And here’s a report from the Denver Post.

    When I was just learning about such things such as American Football, I accompanied my father with him to Husky games on many occasions. Once asking why we would never leave early, he said that “You always stick with your team, in victory and defeat; you support the players.”

    Although to be honest, I probably would have wanted to go too if I was facing a long night drive ahead of me. I didn’t expect them to pull anything off either, and the second half certainly did not give any indications of the team being able to do so. Regardless, it seems the decision to stay was a rather good choice. :)
