It’s a beautiful day and I’m about to ruin it


After a long week, and a long day coming our way tomorrow, we're hitting the golf course this afternoon. The brother-in-law has flown up from California and we're playing in the Spokane Regional Sports Commission's youth charity tournament this weekend. It combines two thinks I believe strongly in supporting: youth sports and losing golf balls. It's a win-win.

Anyhow, the practice round is today, Al is teaming with a friend tomorrow (WSU vs. USC is not a game to miss) and I'm back on the links Sunday.

So here are a smattering of links on different subjects that will have to hold you the rest of the day – tonight is prep football night, so I'll be at a game somewhere.


The Huskies received a verbal commitment from a junior basketball player, Elston Turner, Jr. If the name sounds familiar, it should. His dad played in the NBA.

A heartwarming story out of UW. This is worth reading. So is Don Ruiz's column on why the UW game isn't on TV.

Is college football in a down cycle? Actually, the question posed by Bud Withers is whether or not the big conferences are playing small this season.


Hope doesn't spring eternal. The Mariners announced Thursday Bill Bavasi, Mike Hargrove and the rest of the coaching staff will return in 2007. The announcement came in a letter to season ticket holders. What, is the M's management trying to kill season-ticket sales for next year? The P-I's Art Thiel thinks this is a good move. Sorry, Art, I think you're wrong about this one. Steve Kelley agrees with me, and writes it's past time to turn the ship around. The Times also has its second M's analysis piece today.


The Seahawks are saying all the right things about Mo Morris, according to Mike Sando's story in today's News Tribune.


That's about it. Remember, to keep up on all the latest Cougars, Chiefs, Vandals and Eagles news, click the links on the right. Dave Trimmer already has links up on his Eagle blog to stories from around the Big Sky.
