Sunday memo: Happy Mother’s Day … Remembering Cafe Racer … Shooting in the CD

A rainy Mother’s Day and rest of week:  Shower all the mothers out there with love ’cause it’s going to be a rainy one.

weather-512Showers likely through the next several days including a 90 percent chance tomorrow. Something tells me it’ll be a lot easier to find a playing field at Cal Anderson this week.

Central District Shooting: Not a ton of info just yet,  but Seattle Police are reporting a fatal shooting last night near a CD parking lot.

Cafe Racer recovery: Since the Cafe Racer shootings, survivors have struggled, grieved and rebuilt both their lives and the little cafe. Their motto: Racer Love.

Sounders get hot on offense: After a handful of low-scoring (and frankly pretty boring) affairs earlier this season, the Sounders finally got their offense humming.  Lamar Neagle scored twice, and Mauro Rosales and Obafemi Martins punched balls into the back of the net for 4-0 drubbing of the San Jose Earthquakes. The team has won five straight.

Chris Hansen must really want a basketball team: He’s upped his offer to $625M and cut a backup deal with the current Kings owners to buy 20 percent of the Sacramento team.
