Furness H1 - Doing it for fun / Jordy Nelson visiting Seahawks / Letter to the editor gone too far / Something Good: Felix, Thomas Panek

The teams are set, and March Madness officially gets underway Thursday (or tomorrow, depending on how you look at it). Over the next few weeks, you'll hear a lot about the players, whether they should sit out, etc. What all of these pundits seem to be missing is guys like Zion Williamson play because they play the game. They'll have plenty of time to play for money in the NBA, but for now, they're getting a chance to play in the NCAA Tournament, something most kids can only dream of. Right now, they're doing it for fun. The Seahawks are one of a handful of teams taking a look at Jordy Nelson. Yes, he's getting older, but this is the type of receiver they seem to love to test out. Right now, they risk nothing by bringing him in. If it doesn't work out, they can cut him loose. A letter to the editor in the Seattle Time criticizes Felix. That's all fine and good, but the attack gets a little personal and weird, and what's worse is the author hides behind anonymity. On Something Good, Ian reminds us all that over the course of his time in Seattle, Felix Hernandez has done a ton of good here, and it doesn't get talked about much. Kevin mentions a blind runner who ran the New York Marathon using only his Guide Dogs.
