PIE #2.3. We're crazy about sports - Sounders, Seahawks, Storm, Canucks, yeah! But this week, PIE explores the lesser-known sports: squash, Parkour, roller derby - and hopscotch! And it turns out that we're really good at them! From the first family of world squash to rough-and-tumble skating, this week PIE is sporting! Plus, we search for a real Seahawk and rock with heavy metal band Triaxe.

About PIE. Like any TV show, PIE will bring you things. Things that matter to our audience like art, music, history and the innovative spirit that makes our corner of the world a fascinatingly dynamic place.

In return, we ask that you bring us things too. We're looking for story ideas, images, videos... pretty much anything that reflects the heritage of the area between Vancouver, WA to Vancouver, BC, and from Aberdeen to Alberta, in all its glory, as quirky as it may be.

PIE is best when it's shared. Connect with us on Twitter with the #watchPIE hashtag, on our tumblr blog, or by sending an email to pie@KCTS9.org.
