It’s been a long time coming

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Let's jump into the Wayback Machine and set the dial to 2007. Not all that long ago in days maybe, but seemingly a generation ago in baseball time. Read on.

The delivery system is different but the desire is the same

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Believe it or not kids, there was once a time when streaming video did not exist. We had a thing you might call streaming audio. We called it a transistor radio. Read on.

Nothing to see here

A GRIP ON SPORTS

A fight at a football practice? Oh my goodness, what's a fan to do? Relax would be my advice. Read on.

Thanks again

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Being it is Memorial Day, I want to memorialize the veteran who meant the most to me. Read on.

It’s weird how many connections we have

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Is there some sort of Inland Northwest vortex that we haven't heard about? It seems as if everyone in the news today has a connection to the area. Read on.

A winner anyway you look at it

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Will we see a Triple Crown winner again? It's been since 1978 horse racing has produced a champion of champions. That's more than 25 years by my math. But we may have one again in three weeks. Wouldn't that be something? Read on.

When a door closes, sometimes a window opens

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Whenever a player transfers from one college to another, the fans of where he or she lands always get excited. Sometimes that excitement is well-founded. Other times is isn't. Read on.

Better late than not at all?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Another nice spring Saturday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Let's keep this simple. It's a Saturday, the sun is shining and I'm sure you want to get out and enjoy the day. Can’t argue with that. Read on.

People have gone daft about the draft

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Are you ready for tonight? Got your beverages and snacks? Don't forget a coaster for your drink and a cushion for your seat. It's the NFL's biggest day of the year, non-game variety. It's the Draft, with a capital “D.” And there's one thing I can guarantee. Tonight's first round will have more drama, more entertainment and more intelligent dialogue than that recent cruddy Kevin Costner movie. Sure, the people in the movie were better looking. But no one – no one – could boast better hair than Mel Kiper Jr. Read on.

All those chocolate doughnuts come with a price

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Did you know it is possible to get a cavity in a fake tooth? I didn't either. But I found out recently it is and today I have to pay the price. Read on.

An unlikely hero for the Shock

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Imagine Russell Wilson going down with an injury in St. Louis. And imagine Tarvaris Jackson also being out, injured during the week. So the Hawks turn to Percy Harvin to play quarterback. Think they would win? Read on.

Moos has brought big changes to WSU

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Do you remember Martin Stadium from 30 years ago? Twenty? If you are a Cougar fan, I'm sure you do. Then you know the Martin Stadium of today is a different place – and will be different still next fall with the completion of the football operations building that will loom over the west endzone. The changes in the football complex at WSU are things that will be with us for the next 30, 40, 50 years. It's all part of a vision of one man. Read on.

Now this is a tradition

A GRIP ON SPORTS

You know what day it is? Yep, it's Kentucky Derby day. Read on.

Just another day with football news

A GRIP ON SPORTS

How big has football become in this country? So big it dominates the sports news in early May, when the NBA is having its playoffs, baseball is up and running and the Kentucky Derby is just around the corner. Read on.

You can always use a broom to pound on the ceiling

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Paul Simon once wrote about one man's ceiling being another man's floor. I always felt that had great application in the world of sports. Read on.

There was a lot going on Saturday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Was it a busy Saturday? Well, you decide. The Cougars played their spring game. The Eagles played their spring game. It seems as if the Vandals played their bowl game Friday night. And there was an uproar in the NBA that had nothing to do with the officiating – or the games for that matter. Read on.

The best laid plans are some times for naught

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Is it better to plan for Armageddon and not have it occur or just go through the day without a care? Read on.

NFL seems to dominate all year these days

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Let me check the calendar. It is April, right? Seems like there is a heck of a lot of NFL news for April. Read on.

The changing of the guard continues

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There are some questions that are impossible to answer definitively. Like why the M's are so mediocre year-in and year-out. Or why Pete Carroll is always smiling. Or why kids decide to leave one college for another. Read on.
