TOP OF THE TOWN – Your Seattle Seahawks have won their first two games by a collective total of three points. But don’t get unnerved. Pete Carroll’s teams traditionally start slow – last year they started 0-2 and wound up in the playoffs with a record of 10-6. And they host New Orleans this Sunday that will play without its future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees, who suffered a thumb injury on Sunday and will likely miss at least six weeks. Teddy Bridgewater, the highest paid back-up quarterback in the NFL, will start against the Seahawks. But also expect talented Taysom Hill to get some playing time at QB. Hill, who Saints coach Sean Payton said in the preseason was the next Steve Young, is a former BYU quarterback. You can expect defensive end Ziggy Ansah to finally play for the Seahawks. He will join Jadeveon Clowney as two very talented edge rushers that will give the Seahawks potentially one of the best 1-2 punches in the league. At the very least it will give something the Saints, and future opponents, something to worry about. … Too bad about the football game between Central Kitsap at Lakes being cancelled Friday night because there was a rumor somebody was bringing a gun to the stadium. I’m upset on two fronts. One, is what are we putting our children through? Kids are not being drilled in schools on the possibility of needing to find a hiding place in the case of an active shooter on campus. Wow, what has our society come to? With mass shootings almost a normal occurrence there is a society breakdown that is even causing me to look twice when I hear noises I haven’t heard before. Man, it’s crazy. We need to do something about all the guns. It’s one thing to hunt animals with them, but another thing to hunt humans with them. My second point is more about trying to figure out just how good Central Kitsap is in football than worrying about safety. Lakes is supposed o be pretty good and a game against Lancers would have showed where CK stands. Lakes beat Capital 46-21 in its first game and the way I figure it, CK is the best team on the Olympic Peninsula. The Cougars beat Olympic 41-17, which beat Bainbridge which beat North Kitsap, which figured to be the top 2A team on the peninsula this year. So my revised rankings for the peninsula without considering classification is 1. CK. 2. Sequim. 3. Olympic. 4. Bainbridge. 5. NK. 6. Bremerton. 7. South Kitsap. 8. North Mason. 9. Kingston. 10. Port Angeles. 11. Klahowya. … Washington hammers Hawaii 52-20 to secure its second win of the season, but I’m not completely sold on the Huskies. Their secondary is young, except for Myles Bryant, and have been torched so far this season. And their defensive front, including linebackers, are not what we have come to expect from a Husky front. They will be challenged this weekend in Utah against BYU, although their quickness should be just enough to compensate for their weaknesses and get them a close victory. I think Utah, Oregon, California, Washington State and maybe even USC are better than the Huskies in the Pac-12 at this point. And Arizona State is unbeaten. It looks to me that the Huskies will go 5-4 in the conference,losing all three home games with Utah, Oregon and Washington State in the Apple Cup, and finish the regular season with an 8-4 record, good enough for a minor bowl game. … North Mason will have its annual Wall of Honor ceremonies Oct. 26 at the commons area in the school, starting at 6 p.m. Tickets are $30. To be inducted is Kimberly Wascher, state swimming champion, Zac Joaquin, state Washington champion, former baseball coach Jay Hultberg, current baseball coach Bill Geyer and longtime teacher and school sports announcer Bob Patterson, now retired.. Also going in is the 1975 baseball team that finished second at state. That’s it for today.

Be well pal.

Be careful out there.

Have a great day.

You are loved.
