WhirlyBall Gets Some Well-Deserved Attention

WhirlyBall!Ardent readers of this blog will recall a story from a little over three months ago, in which the glorious sport of WhirlyBall was highlighted. Those same ardent (and possibly imaginary) readers will also recall a follow-up post a few weeks later, in which Skor posted a whiney complaint to a Seattle Times reporter for reporting on Seattle sports without even mentioning WhirlyBall.

After years of being ignored, WhirlyBall finally received some well-earned attention from a major local news outlet yesterday. Though it was not the same reporter Skor emailed back in May, The Seattle Times has finally come around to recognize the greatness of WhirlyBall. Giving nods to both the sport in general as well as the dominant Seattle team specifically, the Times does justice to the great mechanized sport. This is the kind of thing that should make front-page news.

Do yourself a favor. No, do yourself two favors. 1 - Go read Brian Alexander's story in the Seattle Times all about WhirlyBall. 2 - Go play some WhirlyBall. You'll be back here later to thank me.

Brian Alexander, Skor salutes you and offers his thanks for highlighting this amazing sport.

Sounds like fun. A bit far of a drive for me, though.
