SPORTS: Media ignore Northwest champions

What a great win for the Seahawks, and the Northwest. How wonderful for the Seahawks to receive the well- deserved and long overdue recognition that has been denied them all year. It would be nice if another very successful local pro team got the recognition they deserve as well, especially since they have won two national titles.

I would be referring to the Seattle Storm. Yet repeatedly the national coverage acknowledged the Sonics as the one and only other championship team in Seattle history. To make things worse, a local network made the same statement.

A bit of an apology is due the Storm. I know, it’s just a woman’s basketball team. But still, it would be nice.
