A GRIP ON SPORTS • It seems like a lifetime ago, but it really wasn’t. Last night’s World Series opener kindled memories here of the same event just three years ago. Before noisy trash cans. Before COVID-19. Just plain before.
SEATTLE – A week ago Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told his players that their week off would be as critical as any in the NFL season, with the team needing to continue to show the same discipline it had to that point in avoiding any positive COVID-19 cases.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • College football has seen a plethora of game postponements and cancellations this season. The culprit? COVID-19, of course. So why would Pac-12 fans think their conference will be different?
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Baseball has a legacy. It’s the game handed down through the generations, from father to daughter or mother to son, or some combination of same. It spans the generation gap. At least last night’s National League Championship Series’ result did in our house.
The Seahawks, idle this weekend, are 5-0 for the first time in franchise history.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • No matter the sports, a seventh game in a best-of-seven series is fun. At least a week’s worth of work coming down to three or four hours. In baseball, however, one person can make all the difference. As it did again last night.
Steve Largent apologizes for not being able to recall much about the 1980 Seahawks, then pauses.
Not that he needed to provide the endorsement, but in the midst of talking about his start of the season, DK Metcalf threw his support behind a growing candidacy.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • You know what? October feels eerily familiar. Sure, even the guy on the River Styx ferry is wearing a mask, but the rest of the goings-on fit right in. It’s cold in the mornings. There is football on the tube. Lee Corso’s picks make us scratch our head in wonderment. And baseball makes you want to tear your hair out. See, familiar.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • It’s about to get weird. But not this weekend. This weekend is the eye of the sports hurricane, so to speak. Next weekend the Big Ten begins playing football and all heck will break loose. This weekend? The best televised event might be whatever feed CBS sets up from Nick Saban’s house.
SEATTLE – Remember the viral photo on social media of “The Dress,” for which some people saw black and blue while others insisted it was white and gold? Fans probably have similarly contrasting views of the Seahawks right now.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Let’s see. What was Wednesday’s highlight? The lowlight is easy: The Astros winning and avoiding being swept out of the American League Championship series. The highlight, though? The Dodgers scoring 11 runs in the top of the first? College hoops practice tipping off? Wait, I’ve got it.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Some of us like college football. It’s a grand sport with cool Saturdays and all, but it isn’t No. 1 in our hearts. Nope, that ranking is reserved for college basketball. Packed gyms, longtime coaches, March Madness. We love college hoops. It’s college athletics at it’s finest. And it all begins, again, today.
SEATTLE – After the latest of Russell Wilson’s grasping-victory-from-the-jaws-of-defeat high-wire acts, linebacker K.J. Wright – who has been there for every single one – was asked where he thought it ranked among the rest.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • My entire life I’ve loved October. My birthday month, sure, but more importantly the month is filled with baseball games that mean everything. It’s also filled with heroes and goats, with lifelong reputations built on one pitch, one game or one series. One of those heroes died Monday, joining a long list of baseball’s best that will not be with us when this year’s World Series ends.
SEATTLE – They have had rosters stacked with so many future Hall of Famers that the game almost seemed rigged. They have had squads so imposing that if there were a stat for Sleep Lost by Upcoming Opponent, they would have led the league year after year.
For the Seahawks, the week off they now get for their annual bye may be as critical as any week in their season.
Of all the things you can question about the Seattle Seahawks, what you can’t is their ability to just somehow find a way.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Confident. Surprised. Alarmed. Frustrated. Angry. Happy. Expectant. Disappointed. Scared. Astonished. Doubtful. Amazed. Celebratory. Crazy. Exhausted.
Ladies and gentlemen, introducing your still undefeated Seattle Caveats.
