  • I think there is one obvious name that should be on everyone's Mt Rushmore, and that's Ken Griffey Jr. After that it's kind of up in the air.

    I don't want to post mine yet because I'm not sure, but curious what others comes up with.

  • I'm not sure right now but in the future I imagine it would include a ton of current seahawks.

  • From a non Seattle resident or fan (other than the seahawks) I'd probably go: Griffey jr, Gary Payton, Steve largent, and don James.

Who Is On Your Seattle Sports Mt Rushmore
Thu Jul 28, 2016 11:24 pm
  • Junior
    Russell
    Payton
    Carroll
    King Felix

    Hard not to put two current Seahawks on there. Only major professional sports title in Seattle's history since the Sonics almost 40 years ago. And yeah, I'm putting five on my mountain even though there's only four spots.

    Just missing the cut:

    Largent
    Beast
    Edgar
    Kemp

  • The thing is, the greatest players (to this point) have not been members of the Hawks or Sonics when they won their titles, so there's a fair amount of second guessing.... I'd probably go Griffey, Largent, Payton, and Paul Allen.

    For Mariners players only, I go Griffey, Edgar, Ichiro, and Felix. For Hawks players only (as we stand right now) I go Largent, Kennedy, Jones, and Easley. For Sonics, I go Payton, Kemp, Brown, and Haywood, although I don't know basketball as well.

  • I might add, I have no Huskies because A) I don't think of them as a Seattle team, and B) I'm not a Huskies fan. Although it'd be really nice if you guys would man up and beat Oregon.

    45-38.

Give the dude a chance and don't overreact or overthink preseason. Go Hawks. Lacy will rush for 1,100 and 10TDs. Bend the knee.

  • Pro sports only -

    1- Junior. 1st national true super star athlete associated with Seattle. Griffey was emulated by every baseball playing kid in the early to mid 90's. No questions asked, he is the figure head.
    2 - Largent. 1st HOF home grown talent
    3 - Gary Payton.
    3- Shawn Kemp
    4 - Edgar Martinez
    5 - Walter Jones

    I cant rank announcers in this but we have had 3 world class sports announcers in our market for decades.

    Top announcers, in my order -
    1 - Dave Niehaus
    2 - Kevin Callabaro
    3 - cant leave Keith Jackson off the list, even though he is a Coug and didn't stay local.

    To put current Seahawks on the list is just dumb. Let their careers play out. RW is not even close to Juniors level, at least not yet. When RW is considered one of the best NFL players to ever strap up the cleats when he is in his prime, then you can start that argument. Not yet grasshoppers.

    In 10 years Wilson

    It's funny how any Mariner besides Jr, gets on the list, it just proves Seattle loves baseball. Even though they continue to trot out average team after average team, with really bad teams sprinkled in. N

    As awful as the M's have been in their history, they have had some pretty big name players. Lets not forget that up until a few years ago, the Seahawks were not that much different than the M's. And as mediocre and weak as the Seahawks were before the PC era, they never really had the big name stars like the Mariners did. Probably the greatest retired Seahawk is an offensive linemen. I don't think many kids have posters of O-Linemen on their walls.

    I would not call Seattle a baseball town, at least not anymore.

  • Weak before the PC era, the Knox era was pretty good, the Holmgren era wasn't to shabby either, we had a down time during the Behring years, other then that it has been a pretty successful run as far as NFL franchises go, especially considering the AFC West was looked upon as a powerhouse division most that time and then coming into the NFC West that went from worst to Best rather quickly as well.

    The Mariners have the 7th highest local TV rating in MLB this year, despite having the longest postseason drought in the sport.
