Welcome to danraley.com

My fourth book, HOW SEATTLE BECAME A BIG-LEAGUE SPORTS TOWN: FROM GEORGE WILSON TO RUSSELL WILSON, is a new release by Seattle’s Fairgreens Publishing. It’s the consummate Seattle sports bible. It’s gritty. It’s all about the city’s heroes and scandal-makers. It’s 100 stories and more than 200 photos. It’s got a definitive Where Are They Now theme made popular in my time (1980-2009) as a Seattle Post-Intelligencer sports writer. In subtle fashion, it’s a personal memoir. It’ll be a talker for sure. Learn about the UW contract-hit proposal, the cocaine moment at the Rose Bowl and the Sonics’ Sharon Stone-like courtside tease. Want to purchase a book?
