Description

You are about to witness a Throwback Thursday to end all Throwback Thursdays! Last night I was discussing one of my favorite stories ever, which I hadn't seen in 20 years, and editor/video archeologist Joe Wren dug it up in a matter of minutes. It's from December of 1995, when there was a very real danger that both the Mariners AND the Seahawks would leave town for good. Ken Behring was trying to take the Hawks to LA, and Mariners were set to exit if a stadium vote didn't go their way. That got me to thinking, which, as you know, can be a dangerous thing! There are cameos from Seahawks great Curt Warner, my good buddy John Dunn, and KOMO legends Ken Schramm and Howard Scott (not to mention some on-set banter from Steve Pool, Dan Lewis and Kathi Goertzen, circa 1995). Bryan O'Donnell was the photographer. I believe Darrin Tegman was the editor. Enjoy! -- Eric Johnson, KOMO-TV
