Blowers IS the Swami!


There has been a lot of joking with some friends lately about prognosticating football teams and games...but nothing like what I am about to tell you. Mike Blowers, former utility infielder for the Seattle Mariners, and now, a Mariners broadcaster, offered what has to be the greatest prediction of all time -- even trumping my prediction of a couple of weeks ago that the University of Washington would beat USC. ;-) He said that newby Mariner’s infielder, Matt Tuiasosopo, (yes of THAT Tuiasosopo family) would, in his second at bat, on a 3-1 pitch, which would be a fastball, hit his first home run into the left-center field seats. You should have heard the pandemonium in the broadcast booth as Dave Niehaus made the home run call in the young man’s second at bat and on the 3-1 fastball…and yes, to left-center field. All Blowers could do was laugh. Kudos to Mr. Blowers, who now needs to quit his day job and assume his mantle as the King of Prognostication…and take it one the road. lol Blessings,
