Rue the day.
Mariners president Chuck Armstrong exhumed that ancient cliché Wednesday as he spoke to several media outlets while attempting to do the impossible: explain why the local baseball team has a beef with Chris Hansen's proposal to build an NBA/NHL arena in its backyard.
"Our view is that Hansen, if he built it in that location, he would rue the day he did it," Armstrong told me, repeating a line he used on 97.3 KIRO-FM earlier in the day.
Why? Because of traffic.
