It’s cold but the M’s are thawing out a bit

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I'm guessing the skiing and snowboarding will be tubular today. It's 13 degrees outside and it's snowing pretty hard. The snow is so light, though, if you breathe hard enough it blows away. Maybe all the way to southern Russia. Read on.

It was one jam-packed Wednesday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Most hump days are a bit sleepy, sports-wise. Camel racing, sure, but not much else. Yesterday was the exception that shattered the rule. Read on.

Just don’t wash your face

A GRIP ON SPORTS

No matter how cold it gets today, no matter how bad the traffic might be, no matter how much the boss yells at you before lunch, remember, it could be worse. You could be in Sochi, covering the Olympics. Read on.

How about another Super Bowl win?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Ok, that's over. To quote President Bartlett, what's next? Read on.

The Lombardi Trophy has a new home

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Who knew? Defense really does win championships. Read on.

Game day is finally here – let’s get to it

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The hype is, or should be, behind us. The game is all that's left. Today we find out if the Seahawks will be NFL champions. Read on.

A cliche can’t be wrong, can it?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There is one sporting philosophy I've always relied upon. Not just for the past few years or decades, but my entire life. I can't go against it now, can I? Read on.

Not all that much longer now

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Second by second, it's getting closer. Thank goodness. If we have to read another story on how great Peyton Manning and the Denver offense is, or how stout Richard Sherman and the Seattle defense is, we may just explode like the guy at the end of the first “Total Recall” movie. Read on.

It’s time for your say

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Today is your day. Well, today and tomorrow. Read on.

Is the silliness behind us?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The circus that is Super Bowl Media Day is in the rearview mirror. Or should be. From here on in, it is smooth skating until the game. I'm good with that. Read on.

Another day closer to the game

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It's Tuesday morning of Super Bowl week. Are we supposed to be excited or something? Read on.

Laid-back Seattle is all in with Seahawks

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It's Monday morning of Super Bowl week. Are we supposed to be excited or something? Read on.

A different sound last night

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There was something a bit different about Gonzaga's game against BYU on ESPN2 last night. I just couldn't put my finger on it. Well, honestly, yes I could. Read on.

It seems as if there should be a game Sunday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

OK, I admit it. I'm starting to get a bit burned out on the Super Bowl. Maybe it's because I've read just about every story I can find. Maybe it's because I spent most of my 12 hours on the radio talking about it last week. Or maybe it's because the buildup time is too long. I don't know. Read on.

It isn’t cheap to be a spectator

A GRIP ON SPORTS

What's in your wallet? It better be a boatload of money if you want to sit in the cold and watch the Super Bowl live. Tickets are going for a whole heck of a lot. And then there is the expense of getting to New York and staying nearby. None of which is cheap. Still, for the experience, isn't it worth it? Read on.

Missing a game isn’t a lot of fun

A GRIP ON SPORTS

None of us are strangers to hard work, are we? For some it means getting up every day, pulling on the boots and doing battle with the outside elements. For others it might be loafers and the daily contest with a computer. But when it comes to work, we do it for some sort of reward, whether it be monetary or the freedom from having to be at home or just for the good feeling of a job well done. Read on.

Nightmares are part of the game

A GRIP ON SPORTS

If you've read this column for any length of time – and we are in our third year here – you know there are only two things I root for when covering a football game: A quick contest and that no one gets hurt. Neither happened last Sunday in the NFC Championship game. Read on.

Is it baseball season yet?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It's pretty simple to figure out the main topic of discussion the next two weeks. Spring training. No, just kidding, though the annual rite – and all the promise that comes with it – is not too far away. Nope, we're going to be pretty chock full of Super Bowl links and commentary, that's for sure. Read on.

Seahawks are Super Bowl-bound – again

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The second trip to the Super Bowl ever. A hard-fought, down-to-the-wire NFC Championship game with a couple of major injuries and enough highlights to overload SportsCenter for weeks. And all anyone wants to talk about afterward is a minute-long interview? Really? Read on.

This is even bigger than St. Nick

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Can you believe it? It's finally here. No, not Christmas. That flew by last month with hardly a ripple in our household. I'm talking about today's NFC Championship. Heck, I think we bought more foodstuffs for this afternoon than we purchased for Christmas dinner. And a more eclectic variety too. I guess it's appropriate. In some ways today is bigger. Read on.
