Sports network could be a reality

    I’m sure you’ve watched cable’s Fox Sports Northwest. We all have. On the whole, the channel does a fine job of covering regional sports – if you live in Seattle.

    I know, FSN covers sports in Oregon, too. Even Trail Blazer games. They’re nice people – but they really ought to call the network “Fox Sports Seattle.”

    I understand that. They’ve got the Seahawks and Mariners and Sonics and Huskies. But the truth is, regional sports channels work great as long as they don’t try to cover more than one region. And our lot in sports life has been playing second fiddle to our neighbors to the north.
