SEEN FROM WEST SEATTLE: Sign of Mariners’ big win

As seen from North Admiral, that “W” is for the Mariners‘ biggest win in 21 years – the one last night that guaranteed them a spot in the playoffs for the first time since 2001. The photo is from Al, who also saw the “W” from inside the stadium, because he was there for the 2-1 win over Oakland.

And Al had a view of the team celebrations like this:

(For a look at the T-shirts they were wearing, see this photo from the M’s Twitter feed.) 2001 was the year the Mariners won 116 games in the regular season and went as far as the American League Championship Series.

    Go Mariners! Go Cal Raleigh! Will someone get Robbie Ray some looser-fitting pants by game one?!

    Was at Good Society and captured the moment. Fun to see the small crowd gather by the TV in the bottom of the ninth and revel in the celebration.

    Was I hearing fireworks as part of this celebration last night?

    • WSB October 1, 2022 (9:41 am)

      Yes, previously scheduled fireworks show postgame.

    And that’s one big monkey off the back for Mariner’s fans. Now the Seahawks are probably the team in Seattle with the longest playoff drought, probably tied with the Kraken, and soon likely to be joined by the Sounders.

    In 2001, 8 teams were in the playoffs. Now it’s all the way up to 12. Pretty soon they’ll let every team in and there will be nothing to celebrate.

      I wouldn’t mind if they expanded to 14, but yeah, they should stop there.

Sorry, comment time is over.
