Melting the ice with hot coffee

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Every once in a while I sit at my computer in the early morning hours and freeze. No, I'm not cold. I guess a better way to put it is I freeze up. I have no idea what I'm going to write about. No idea what would interest you. No idea how to entertain everyone. Usually, to break up the ice on my hands, I push away from the computer, get up, walk to the kitchen and make coffee. As it percolates in the Cuisinart, I count myself lucky if a thought comes into my head. Let's hope it works today. Read on.

Kent spends the day making WSU fans smile

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Carroll has vindication – and a new deal

A GRIP ON SPORTS

A throwback for the Zags on Friday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The next couples day are about recuperating

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There is a move afoot, brought to you by our friends at Budweiser, to make the opening day of baseball season a national holiday. Publicity stunt? Sure. Heck, baseball's Opening Day isn't even the most important day in American sports these days. It's probably a poor third. Heck, in my eyes, if any day (or days) deserves national holiday status, it is today. And/or tomorrow. Call them Cinderella Days. Then the males of this country wouldn't have to schedule surgical procedures earlier in the week just to be able to enjoy them. Read on.
