Bree’s World: Give her a reality show, please

A COUPLE of recent tweets from Bree Schaaf (@BreeSchaaf), Bremerton’s Olympic bobsledder who has been training in Lake Placid, N.Y. :

“Its blackberry season back home!!Always ends up looking like an episode of True Blood.”

“2 sensations seared into my brain: 1. Hitting 94mph in whistler last year 2. Running barefoot in the park yesterday and stepping in dog doo”
I’m not a big fan of reality TV, but the always-engaging, self-depricating Schaaf should have her own show. There’s a network out there that’s missing the boat. Wire her up and just let her go as she travels the world, driving her bobsled and lighting up everyone around her as she goes about her business.
Schaaf’s goal, of course, is winning a gold medal at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, not becoming a reality TV star.
COACHES PETE CARROLL of the Seahawks and Jim Harbaugh of the 49ers downplayed their personal rivalry during media interviews on Wednesday. It all revolves around comments the two made following a 2009 game when Harbaugh’s Stanford Cardinal beat Carroll’s USC Trojans 55-21 athte LA Coliseum. While doing it, Harbaugh went for two late in the game.

“He said, ‘What’s your deal?’ I said, ‘What’s your deal?’ And then from there, it’s about as well-documented a six word sentence as there could be,” Harbaugh said.

John Boyle of the Everett Herald (you can read his Seahawks’ reports in our print and online pages) blogged about it. 

It would be fun to know what the coaches talk about on Sunday in San Francisco. They will, no doubt, shake hands and share a few words on-field prior to the game. Will they laugh about it and poke fun at the media for bringing it up? Or is there a real dislike between the two?

THE PAC-16? Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech are the schools mentioned as possible new members. It’s just part of the news regarding the latest rumors surrounding college realignments. A&M to the SEC? Missouri, Kansas and Kansas State to the Big East? Is this the beginning of the end of the NCAA? Nobody knows for sure, but I’m inclined to agree with what Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports, who says it’s all about greed and it’s not good for college athletics.

IN CASE you missed it, here’s our latest update on our local pro baseball players: Jared Prince, Willie Bloomquist, Jason Hammel, Aaron Cunningham, Todd Linden and Drew Vettleson.

USAIN BOLT. Just wondering, but has there ever been a better name for an athlete?
