Danny O'Neil covers the Seahawks for The Seattle Times.

I was trying to go for the "K.C. and the Sunshine Band" reference with the title. The K.C. here is veteran Seattle sports broadcaster Kevin Calabro, who is watching practices this week in preparation for his gig as television play-by-play man for the Seahawks' first exhibition game on Aug. 8 at Minnesota.
Calabro is stepping in for Verne Lundquist for that game only. Lundquist, who will call the second and fourth exhibitions games, has another commitment the weekend of the first game.
ESPN is handling the third game -- it's a Monday night on national TV Aug. 25.
As for the sunshine, well, it rained during both practices and was cloudy all day. And for QB Matt Hasselbeck, things just seem quieter around camp this year.
"We used to have a lot of louder people," Hasselbeck said. "We're in a different environment here. There aren't a lot of fans here and this is not a real media circus like it is in some other camps right now. It's just different. It is quiet here. It's gloomy, it's been raining. [Deep breath here] Just different."

I love that the Hawks will be getting a new training facility, but I miss the Hawks camp at Cheney!

Will the public be aloud to watch anywhere at the new facility?

Hope the familiar voice of KC works out and he gets more opportunities doing Hawks games.

Any indication of what fan access will be like at the new facility? It was great at Cheney, but I imagine fans will be kept far away...

Kevin Calabro calling Hawks games would be awesome! I like Raible, but Calabro is another step above...

Kevin Calabro should do all the Hawks games.

Yeah, but who really needs KC is the Mariners.
