A GRIP ON SPORTS

The West Coast Conference basketball season begins today and guess what. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are the favorite. Ya, really. Surprising, huh? Read on.

What was the best of 2014?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I have one hope. I hope every one had a marry Christmas. … Wow. Talk about an interesting typo. I meant a “merry” Christmas. Even if the sports landscape was devoid of anything except NBA games. Read on.

It’s been a wonderful season for the Seahawks

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It is Christmas Eve. The day to give an angel its wings. And to watch “It's a Wonderful Life.” That is the 30-for-30 on Richard Sherman, right? Read on.

There’s another ground floor being built in Cheney

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It seemed as if last night was a good night to watch a college basketball game live. It was. Read on.

Seahawks’ win makes our days a bit brighter

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I don't know about you, but today seems a little brighter to me. There seems to be a bit more sunshine. And it JUST seems as if it will be lighter, longer. Do the Seahawks really have that much power, or is it just a quirk of the calendar? Read on.

It’s the week of regional rivalries

A GRIP ON SPORTS

You a Cougar fan? How about Gonzaga? Both? If it's the last one, then it is going to be a tough couple days for you. Read on.

Seahawk defense puts the D in domination

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Pulled out my dictionary this morning from its storage spot, under the broken back leg of our old couch. Blew off the dust and opened it to the “D” section. Flipped through until I found the word domination. Much to my surprise, there wasn't a picture of the Seahawks defense. Read on.

Winners and losers from a great Saturday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Well, that was fun. Even for the one team in the area that didn't post a “W.” And for all of us who got to watch. Read on.

A win is sweeter when it comes with some adversity

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It can be dangerous to be Italian. No, I'm not making a Mafia reference or anything like that. That would be wrong. It's just that, for some reason, Italians like to talk with their hands. I know, strange. But there I was yesterday, channeling my inner Sicilian, talking with my hands – in a radio studio no less, where no one can see me – and my right one just happens to collide with part of the decorations. My hand got the worst of it. After cleaning up the blood (and no, I am proud to say, I didn't faint), we were able to continue. What is it coaches always say? You have to play through adversity? Just like a couple of our local college basketball teams did last night. Bloodied, sure. Bowed, maybe. But not beaten. Read on.

In this case, missing a block is a good thing

A GRIP ON SPORTS

One thing I never worry about: writer's block. I just yell “lookout,” as I did years ago on the football field, and move on. So, like those quarterbacks and running backs of yesteryear, you've been warned. Read on.

A hot stove is always appreciated

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Is it too early to start thinking about baseball season? When it's 25 degrees outside, is wishing for spring appropriate? What say you? Read on.

Sports can be downright cruel

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Cruel is not a word that's used often in relationship to sports, at least not in this space. But yesterday was a cruel day around here, in more ways than one. Read on.

The day after the Apple Cup

A GRIP ON SPORTS • UPDATED: 10:10 A.M.

We're finally ready to post our usual combination of thoughts, links and cat videos. Read on.

Will tonight be another of those epic Apple Cups?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It's Apple Cup Saturday, which is sort of a big deal around here. That it might possibly bleed into Apple Cup Sunday, well, that's not such a big deal, is it? Read on.

Hawks stake their claim on 49ers

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Hope your shopping is going well. The Seahawks assured the Bay Area, at least those folks in the Bay Area that root for the 49ers, would have a Black Friday with their domination last night. Read on.

Who will fly tonight?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Being it is the Thanksgiving holiday, I contemplated taking the day off. Relaxing, sleeping in and all that. But I couldn't. Not with all the sports news out there. And with the Seahawks' biggest game of the season coming our way this evening. Read on.

It all seemed a little out of place

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There is a time and place for everything. Sometimes, even mature adults get that mixed up. Read on.
