The Olympic Committee has yet to decide whether to let Washington native Queen Underwood box in the Olympics, but they did give the go-ahead to Clarissa Shields.

Shields lost to England's Svanna Marshall last week at the Women's World Championships in China. Despite the loss the she still qualified to fight in London this summer.

Underwood, from Seattle, lost in the World Championships and is still waiting to hear whether the Olympic Committee will let her compete.

    This lengthy build-up leads me to one sincere question: Did the 2001 season doom the Seattle Mariners franchise? If the M's had won the World Series that year, would we be talking about a dynasty? Out of the Park Baseball 15 allows baseball fans to answer that question.
