Roaring jets trigger queasy memories for Chris Petersen

SEATTLE (AP) — Chris Petersen got a brief respite from the talk of the high expectations facing Washington on the eve of fall camp.

Rather than talking around questions about the Huskies being a likely top 10 team when the AP Top 25 is released later this month or about the opener against powerhouse Auburn, Petersen was able to deflect momentarily as jets roaring overhead allowed him to share a memory.

Eventually there was some talk about the Huskies and what lies ahead before the Sept. 1 season-opener in Atlanta against Auburn.

But sandwiched in between football questions was a highly entertaining story from the Huskies' leader as the Blue Angels practiced over Lake Washington ahead of their weekend performances in Seattle.
