Time to get on your game face: The Seahawks open the preseason at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in Kansas City, and the World Trade Center Sports Salon opens its happy-hour doors at 5 p.m. Thursday on the waterfront to nourish you with quality food, drink and Seahawks information.

Please join me and Tony Softli, former NFL executive and scout, now an analyst with Sports Radio 950 KJR, to talk about how the Seahawks can get back to the Super Bowl — and why they may not. Twelves won’t get this information anywhere else in so cool a spot as Seattle’s downtown waterfront.

Casual, provocative and funny, the Sports Salon is a great way to get inside Seattle’s top sports topics, especially if you bring your questions.

Softli comes by his expertise from nearly a lifetime of football on the field, sidelines and front office. A Newport High School grad and former University of Washington linebacker when the Huskies won the 1979 Sun Bowl, he was an assistant coach under legendary UW coach Don James.

Softli worked for the Carolina Panthers for 11 years in various personnel capacities before joining the St. Louis Rams as vice president of player personnel for four seasons. His knowledge of players, front offices and NFL policies and customs is unsurpassed.

He also is director of college recruiting for the NFLPAs annual Collegiate Bowl and has his own consulting business, Cattleya Media LLC.

His podcasts can be found here.

Tickets can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets here, or purchased at the door.
