LAMM AT LARGE: Seahawks will regret Russell Wilson contract

LAMM AT LARGE: Seahawks will regret Russell Wilson contract

By: David Lamm The Seahawks were crazy to give Russell Wilson his new contract, worth $140 million for 4 years.

LAMM AT LARGE: Masters Sunday is special – the most special

LAMM AT LARGE: Why I quit filling out a bracket

By: David Lamm I quit filling out an NCAA basketball bracket years ago. I always knew it, but didn’t admit it to myself until a few years ago about how little I knew about most of the teams. And I’m a college basketball fan, plus keeping up with all the sports is what I’m paid…Continue Reading »
