Founders

COLBY PATNODE

Colby served as site expert for SoDo Mojo of the FanSided network for 3-years, covering the Seattle Mariners on a daily basis. When he’s not obsessing over the Mariners, Colby also writes for SeahawkMaven.com and is an avid fantasy sports player. He also enjoys Big Brother, playing Pokemon, and keeping up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

TY GONZALEZ

Born in Washington, Ty now roots for the Mariners from the often snowy confines of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. While he believes Rogers Centre is a glorified parking garage, the ballpark has brought him some of his best personal sports memories, including being front-and-center for James Paxton’s no-hitter on May 8, 2018. An aspiring sports journalist, Ty also contributes to Seahawk Maven and Prospect Insider after nearly two years of being one of the site experts at SoDo Mojo.
