Nothing trivial about Saturday’s game

A GRIP ON SPORTS

We are going to share some trivia with you today. Which is different than our usual column, in which we mainly share something trivial. Only one letter different, maybe, but we'll go with that. Read on.

Sometimes you just have to tip your cap

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I'm not really sure what to write about today. The weather, maybe. We are supposed to have a 60-degree day, which is nice. Or should I do something related to WSU or Eastern? Hey, I know. How about some cross country or tennis? Anything but baseball. Read on.

An end to a season and an unproductive era

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Today is the final day of the baseball season. Yesterday was the final day of something else in Seattle. Read on.

Gonzaga poised to have a special year

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There have been rumblings up around Boone St. and Hamilton Ave. You know, about how this may just be the best team Mark Few's put together at Gonzaga. Looking over the roster, the talent certainly is there. But talent is only part of the equation. Solving for FF, as in reaching the Final Four, is always about the other variables. Read on.

Arizona 3, Washington 0

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There is a movie – sorry, a film – in the multiplexes right now that purports to describe a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. What, they already made a mov, er, film, about Saturday's college football in Washington? Read on.

A decently early day of college football

A GRIP ON SPORTS

All eyes this weekend will be on …

A GRIP ON SPORTS

You know what happens this weekend? Summer ends, in a metaphysical way. See, this is the last weekend of baseball. The last gasp of summer's game. Of course, it won't be that big a deal. Saturday the nation's eyes will not be turned to Joe Dimaggio's successors, they will be tuned-in to Knute Rockne's descendants. And Sunday will be, as always, about the NFL. Read on.

The area’s college football scene has a bit of everything

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Are we blessed around here or what? We have four college football teams, all playing a different level of the game, all with varying degrees of fan support, but none on the outskirts of the game. That isn't the way it is everywhere. Read on.

The week rolls on to Saturday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

This Fall Classic should be classic

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The weather, so nice and warm over the weekend, is going to begin to turn today, making its inexorable march to the depths of winter. You know what that means, right? Tonight must be the start of the World Series, when the Boys of Summer finish their season in the Fall Classic. Read on.

A road block may be ahead this morning

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Sunday mornings are usually the pivot point for the football weekend. We look back, we look ahead. Not this morning. No rearview mirror today. We're headed full speed down the highway. Destination: St. Louis. Read on.

Hawks say goodbye to Harvin

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Doesn't it feel as if you had vacations in Seattle that lasted longer than Percy Harvin's tenure there? Let's hope when you finally left town the hotel clerks and cab drivers spoke better of you than the Hawks have of Harvin. Read on.

Fall football always finds a way to entertain

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The yard is ready for winter. Well, the lawn is. Now if the darn leaves would just fall, I could settle in for a couple months of football watching before having to shovel snow. Read on.

Rivalries are fun until we’re the someone who gets hurt

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Rivalries are fun. Except when your rival is head-and-shoulders more successful than your team. Then rivalries are sad. Crying in your diet soda sad. Read on.

The lies the men in blazers told us …

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Is even the specter of the college football playoffs ruining the regular season? Ha. Read on.

Take a breath; it isn’t as bad as feared

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Is another long season already in the cards?

A GRIP ON SPORTS
