Grip on Sports: Have the remote handy; this Sunday is packed with sports

A GRIP ON SPORTS • Is anything still called “super-sized” anymore? Well, if the term is still used then it is appropriate for today. It’s “Super-Sized Sunday.” (Not to be confused with Super Sunday, which I'm guessing the NFL has trademarked, registered and padlocked.) Read on.

Grip on Sports: Today’s Apple Cup will decide more than most

A GRIP ON SPORTS • The Apple Cup is finally upon us. After weeks and weeks of hype and speculation, it’s time to figure out which of Washington’s Pac-12 teams is the best this season. On the turf. As it should be. But maybe nothing of the sort will be decided at all. Read on.

Grip on Sports: Thanksgiving football memories are always good, except when they flood back

A GRIP ON SPORTS • It’s Thanksgiving. In my lifetime – and that’s not a short span my friends – that’s meant three things: way too much food, great football and at least one “disagreement.” The first one is universal, the third one too personal to touch on here so we’ll focus on the second one today. Besides, this is the sports page. Read on.

Grip on Sports: There is always something on the line in the Apple Cup

A GRIP ON SPORTS • It is about 50 hours or so until the Apple Cup kicks off in Pullman and it’s raining. Or snowing, if you look through life with Crimson-colored glasses. It’s a goal, isn’t it, every year the rivalry game is on this side of the mountains? Another snow bowl. Or Snow Bowl if you prefer. It doesn’t look as if that goal will be reached this year but others might. Read on.

Grip on Sports: Pullman the place to be this week for the nation’s sports media

A GRIP ON SPORTS • Funny thing about winning football game after football game. The national media begin to take notice. It’s happened this week in Pullman, where the Cougars are riding an eight-game winning streak. It’s so crowded, I half-expected Drake to show up wearing a sweatshirt with Mike Leach’s portrait on it. Read on.

Grip on Sports: Seahawks overcome Patriots because they refused to move

A GRIP ON SPORTS • Back in the day, the nuns at St. Rita’s elementary taught us a song in unity with California’s striking farm workers. We learned the lyrics in Spanish and the tune has stuck with us since the 1960s. It was running around our head late last night as the Seahawks faced a crucial goal-line stand. Read on.

Grip on Sports: Beau Baldwin, Mike Kramer and the deep roots of Eastern Washington football

A GRIP ON SPORTS • Beau Baldwin is a heck of a football coach. The Eastern Washington head man has accomplished things that no other Eagle coach has ever done, including win a national title. But this weekend, he goes into Eastern’s final regular season home game as an underdog. No, not on the field. In the press conferences. He’s about a 1,500-word underdog actually. That’s because Mike Kramer is returning to town. Read on.

Grip on Sports: 2016 will be remembered for a long time - in sports

A GRIP ON SPORTS • Kind of wild year, huh? Got thinking about 2016 and it’s off-the-wall quality somewhere around midnight or so last night. Being that this is on the Sports page of The Spokesman-Review, we’ll concentrate on that. We'll leave the other stuff to, well, others. Read on.

Grip on Sports: So what will we see tonight from the Seahawks?

A GRIP ON SPORTS • Monday night means Monday Night Football. Has for as long as most of us can remember. For the Seahawks and their fans, Monday Night Football usually means a Tuesday celebrating a win. Does it happen again this week? Read on.
