McKalie Bellew FishWrap, FishWrap Archive

After the season opener for our men’s basketball team, Caleb Couturie attended the post-game press conference for FishDuck.com at Matthew Knight Arena.

Kim Hastings FishWrap, FishWrap Archive

  I’ve lived in Tacoma, Washington, for the better part of two decades.  During that time, Tacoma has had several nicknames.  First, it was “City of Destiny,” then, “America’s Most-Wired City.”  But my favorite is the one that was just adopted, “You Can Smell the Huskies’ Desperation From Here.”  Living up here gives me the unique opportunity to talk to …
