Nothing good can come of this

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Some mornings you just feel like whining a bit. But what good would that do? The day is still going to happen. And you are going to be a part of it. It's better than the alternative, right? Read on.

Seems like a bad day to step inside

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Isn't it just like Spokane? I commit to spending most of the next three days indoors at the State 2B basketball tournament and the weather turns nice. Highs in the high 40s and low 50s and sunshine, at least Friday and Saturday. The perfect time to step outside for a long walk after the interminable 30-degree days (and lower) of winter. But basketball is basketball. Read on.

So what peeves you?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Coaching kids is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you might get. Case in point: I asked a group of high school-bound athletes the other day if they had any questions. “You have any pet peeves?” one kid asked. Yes I do. I named one. And as the practice wore on, I continually pointed out others. But it was a good question. Read on.

And the award goes to …

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It seems moviegoers aren't the only ones who can enjoy awards. College basketball fans get to experience the same joys and disbelief as well. Read on.

There is someone to blame for WSU’s woes

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Remember that scene in “Titanic” when the lookout spies the iceberg, yells down a warning from his perch and they try to turn the ship out of harm's way? Me too. But I bet you're asking yourself, “What does that have to do with sports?” Read on.

High school ties bind forever

A GRIP ON SPORTS

When does the statute of limitations expire on rooting for your high school? Never? Read on.

It’s time for February to go away

A GRIP ON SPORTS

All I can say is it's about darn time. Tomorrow is March 1. Today is the final day of February. Thank goodness. I don't know about you, but I'm getting tired of winter. And ready for the madness of March. Read on.

The last tear is the saddest

A GRIP ON SPORTS

You know what's sort of sad for a sports fan? When you get to the final ticket or two of a season. When you realize there are only a couple of more games left before it all ends. Read on.

A once-bitter rivalry is no longer smokin’

A GRIP ON SPORTS

If you have lived around the Inland Northwest for any amount of time, you might remember when the grass fields were torched with regularity. The smoke would rise on the horizon and, if you had the desire to drive around, you could witness the red flames turning the ground a deep black. It was an interesting contrast to the green pine trees ringing the golden fields of September. Why am I thinking of such colorful things? Read on.

It’s cold out there every day

A GRIP ON SPORTS

OK campers, rise and shine. And don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooold out there today. Read on.

Things aren’t always as they seem

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It wasn't “War of the Worlds” deceiving, but a lot of people seemed to think Jimmy Johnson won the Daytona 500 yesterday. I wonder if it was because of a replay took the place of the real race or if it was just because Johnson always seems to win. Read on.

It’s a great day to relax

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Sunday mornings are for a lot of things, but worrying about the Zags or the Cougars or the Eagles or even the Mariners probably isn't one of them. Read on.

The years roll by but prep playoffs remain as competitive

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Funny thing when you get into a Twitter spat with someone. They often times try to insult someone of my advancing years by exaggerating my age. Like, say, insinuating I'm 80 or something. Little do the youngsters know, when you get to these senior years, 80 starts to look really good. As in, “I hope I'm still around when I'm supposed to be 80.”  Read on.

One from the entrees, two from the desserts

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Sometimes it's worthwhile to sit down for a nice meal. And other times we feel like a buffet. Today is the latter. Read on.

Gonzaga game means everything for BYU

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There's a showdown tonight in the West Coast Conference. It means everything to one team. And Gonzaga is involved as well. Read on.

Is there change in the air?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

So what does the future hold in Pullman? That's the $1.7-million question, isn't it? Read on.

Emotion can be good and bad

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Senior days and the like mean a lot in college. The emotional lift of honoring someone or a group of someones who have given a lot to your institution can propel a team to a victory or cause a sentimental hangover. We saw examples of both just last night. Read on.

All we ask is for some consistency

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Like a volcano or an earthquake, sometimes you just have to let loose. It's happening here this morning. Don't miss it. Read on.
