Some things matter tonight, others don’t

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The Seahawks take to the CenturyLink turf again tonight, the third of four preseason games. As always there is one overarching goal for Pete Carroll and his team: stay healthy. Read on.

Ewu sports chat Aug. 21 (noon)

Here's the transcript for Thursday's EWU chat:

Football season has officially begun

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The NFL began a while ago. Colleges started late last month. And now football season is officially here. Yep, the high schools here in Washington began practice yesterday. Read on.

Our allegiances are about to be stretched

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Is there anything worse than your Pop Tart breaking and half of it falling on the floor? Yes, there is. Read on.

The next few weeks are going to be fun

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It's Monday. The workweek begins. But there is hope. After it ends Friday, there is college football Saturday. Read on.

Your Saturdays are no longer yours

A GRIP ON SPORTS

You know what yesterday was, don't you? Yep, the final Saturday of 2014 without a college football game. Really. Read on.

What a fun Friday night

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Well that was fun. As fun a Friday night as I can remember in a while. Maybe all the way back to high school. The M's win. Dominate really, and take over the lead in the second wild-card race. The Seahawks win. Dominate really, and take over, well, nothing, as it was just the second preseason game. But they won. And easily. That's enough. Read on.

Can the M’s make a run at the West title?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Up early today thanks to an early tee time. It's good though. I went out on a limb yesterday and really wanted to know what you think about it. So an early start is good. Read on.

Let’s put yesterday behind us

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Wednesday was a day of brooms and bad backs, moving vans and moving the ball, of exonerations and expectations. It was also hump day. Read on.

No, this is not another bogus M’s post

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Yes, I know. I have been writing a lot about the Mariners lately. Can you blame this old baseball fan? Yes, you can. So we'll switch gears today. You may not be too happy. Read on.

A postseason chase will be fun

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Want to cook up a great baseball atmosphere? Start with the American League's best pitcher on the mound. Add 20,000 little yellow towels. Stir in 10,000 or so Canadians, down from the north to cheer on the visiting team. Let simmer for five or six innings. Then turn up the heat. Don't forget to add a bit of rain and a smidge of lightning. The perfect recipe for an exciting game. Read on.

It’s easy to get all worked up over Lou

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It seems as if everyone has a Lou Piniella story. I wish I could say the same. Read on.

Don’t confuse ‘experienced’ with just plain old

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Woke up this morning feeling a little like Tiger Woods. You know, a little old, a little over the hill, a little like yesterday's news. Read on.

For want of a quarterback nailed, an exhibition game was lost

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The big plays earn all the ink. The stars are all over television. The little things get lost in the shuffle. It's the way it's always been and probably always will be. But it isn't right. Read on.

It’s time for introductions

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I'll admit I'm a bit prejudice here, but I've always felt the best stories to come from college football's preseason practice are the ones about players we know little about. Pieces about guys who are always destined for reserve roles. Features on players who have been under the radar but are about to break out into the consciousness of the fans. Stories like that. Today, Jacob Thorpe does one of the latter and boy is it fun. Read on.

Fix-it Felix is already taken

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I'm sorry but I don't believe Felix Hernandez's nickname is sufficient anymore. There has to be some leader who is above the king, right? Emperor Felix, maybe. Or Supreme Commander Felix? Read on.

A jam-packed day of news

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It's been a long time since we've had a day as jammed with news as this morning is. Maybe since the end of last football season. Read on.

Our desire for football is burning bright

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Let's see. It's going to be 99 degrees in Spokane today. Wonder what it will be in Lewiston? My guess: 104. But there should be a nice breeze off the Clearwater. Read on.

A worthy honor for a worthy man

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Bill Moos has done a heaping handful of praiseworthy moves since becoming the athletic director at Washington State a few years ago. But the decision he announced yesterday concerning Steve Gleason was the best of the lot. Read on.
