Howard Lincoln is ashamed of the Mariners

Howard Lincoln, chairman and CEO of the Seattle Mariners, at Western Washington University's commencement, wondering aloud how he could possibly inspire a graduating class:
Our team has performed so poorly that you probably don't want to hear me talk about the Mariners.
The self-deprecating line got a (tragic, ironic, soul-crushing) laugh.

Previously, when congratulating WWU's president, Karen Morse, who had introduced him, Lincoln praised her for being able to withstand "unending scrutiny of decisions."

Makes this blogger wonder if Lincoln is starting to feel the strain.
