"Sports with Art Thiel" is the reason I listen to KPLU on Friday and Saturday mornings. The best common sense (and no non-sense) sports report in the local media. That's because Art has the sense of Seattle sports history that puts the modern day scenario into perspective. He also gives you the answers you may not have known you wanted.
