Last WSU post for a while


Let’s see. What’s on my vacation checklist. Flip flops? Check. Cooler? Check. Sunshine? Eeh, not so much. Not going to stop me though. Read on.


• Yes, faithful and daily SportsLink readers, this guy is taking a week off. A chance to reconnect with the family. A chance to relax. A chance to attack that #$*&^% to-do list that’s grown a half-mile long since last July. “I’ll get to it when I’m not so busy” doesn’t cut it anymore. So, for the next week, you’re somewhat on your own. Somewhat, because, of course, if something big happens, like say an athletic director beats ups another athletic director at the Pac-10 meetings, I’ll drop my trowel and run in to the computer. But otherwise I’m stuck digging in the dirt, painting the front of the house and hitting pitching wedges over the green … I mean fixing the sprinklers.

• Before I go, however, there are a couple links to share. The Cougar men won the dual meet against the University of Washington yesterday but the women were edged by the smallest of margins. Football fans, check out Jeshua Anderson’s 400 time in John Blanchette’s write-up. Anderson didn’t run the hurdles Saturday, just kept on the flat ground. … The WSU baseball team dropped a sloppy one to Stanford. … And freelancer Howie Stalwick talked with former Coug quarterback Jason Gesser about his latest gig.


• So that’s it for a while. You guys are on your own for now, so play nice. And don’t burn the house down while I’m gone. You, in the back, … ya, you. No parties, you hear? I’ve got the neighbors watching the place and I’m only a keystroke away. We’ll be back soon. Until then …
