Husky Stadium needs to get bigger to handle its huge fan base

Now don’t get mad at me, Randy Hodgins, but I had to laugh when I read that Qwest Field won’t support the University of Washington’s “fan base.” It has only, what, 60,000 seats?

And that’s why you want Husky stadium to have more than 72,000 seats.

Right now, I think the Husky fan base (and I’m a UW alum, OK?) would fit quite comfortably into one of those canoes on the Montlake Cut.

One of the two daily newspapers in Seattle has an article about how hard it will be to get the Legislature to approve use of King County taxes for Dawg pound expansion.

Here’s a good story in the Seattle Post Intelligencer, which is still in business, by the way.
