This week on Sports With Friends:

Longtime Seattle Times reporter Geoff Baker joined the podcast. He has a new book due out in November entitled, “Rising From the Deep: The Seattle Kraken, a Tenacious Push for Expansion, and the Emerald City’s Sports Revival” https://tinyurl.com/2rw3w2j3. In the book, he chronicles the origin of the newest NHL franchise. The story behind the Kraken’s arrival is deep-rooted in Seattle sports history, beginning with the departure in 2008 of the Seattle SuperSonics. The Kraken lead to the remodeling of Key Arena into the new Climate Pledge Arena. Still, Covid-19 and construction delays made it difficult for the Kraken to get off the ground.

Baker explains the whole process and discusses how the Kraken may be a pawn in Seattle’s real goal to return the Sonics back to the Pacific Northwest.
