    Unfortunately, he still keeps his role as the Jim Walden of Husky radio broadcasts.

    I had hoped his poor performance as a broadcast commenter would’ve led to him being shown the exit.

    Not a good sign.

    commentator. Duh!

    I like Damon Huard. I interviewed him on radio when he was working with First and Ten to push public funding for the proposed Seahawks stadium. I didn’t agree that Paul Allen needed “help” in paying for it and had some tough (but hopefully fair) questions ready for Damon, and he handled them beautifully. I’ve interviewed a lot of people over the years, and this was one of the best because of Damon’s subject knowledge and ability to state his point respectfully. Trust me, that’s not always the case.

    Damon is a bright guy who should be fine no matter what he chooses and I wish him well.
