From seniors to the stadium, a busy Friday


Earlier tonight we posted our roundtable interview – done, oddly enough, around a round table –  with the WSU fifth-year seniors, a piece that I had fun putting together. After the recorder was off, the guys began telling stories they didn't need to share. I was able to add one about Andrew Roxas, who attended the same high school as I did, just a “couple” years later. Read on.


• I pulled up to a red light in Pullman one afternoon after an August football practice and the SUV next to me had its windows down. In the front passenger seat was former Cougar quarterback Gary Rogers, his head bobbing back and forth. I had my window up and the air conditioning on, so I lowered it to hear the music they were listening to. Eminem? Black Sabbath? Brooks and Dunn? It was, of all things, Hawaiian music. And Roxas, who was driving, was signing along at the top of his lungs. I will always remember that. … We have more on the seniors in this story for tomorrow's S-R. … We also covered the news about the Martin Stadium remodel from the Regents meeting today in this story. While at the Pullman Cougar Club luncheon today, I heard the news the Apple Cup next year will be on the Friday after Thanksgiving in Pullman. Seems like a good day to me. Wait, I'll be retired. … Had a chance to check out basketball today and have injury news to pass on. Senior forward Abe Lodwick is out three-to-five weeks after a broken bone was discovered in his left foot. The injury occurred at practice a few weeks back and, at first, it was thought to be a sprain. But it was reexamined today and the break was discovered. Lodwick was doing push ups on one foot today, trying to keep his upper body strong, then elevated the injured foot and iced it. … .


• That's it for tonight. We'll be back tomorrow morning. Until then …
