A GRIP ON SPORTS • In an attempt to lighten our evening, we watched the first part of “Wall-e” last night. The appearance of a mounted trout singing “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” surprised us almost as much as it did Eve. And made us realize something. It should be this year’s theme song.
SEATTLE – What did Pete Carroll think of how the Eagles “fired up” DK Metcalf? What’s the latest on Carlos Dunlap? And was Monday night’s 23-17 win over Philadelphia the best game Jamal Adams has played as a Seahawk?

PHILADELPHIA — DK Metcalf got extra motivation he didn't even need.
Monday Night Football?
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Some nights it is hard to fall asleep. Especially when you are contemplating the existential questions of the universe. Case in point: last night. The question? How does one highly ranked college basketball team shoot 28 more free throws in a neutral-site game against another ranked team? How indeed.
Carson Wentz didn’t finish the game the last time he faced the Seattle Seahawks because of a concussion.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • It’s not many years there comes a Saturday in late November without a Washington State football game or a Gonzaga basketball game to observe. Or a Sunday Seahawks’ game to anticipate. But that was yesterday. It was the final Saturday in November of the weird year, 2020. Thank goodness.
Given where he was a year ago at this time – in the initial stages of another grueling rehab from another devastating injury – Seahawks tight end Will Dissly counts it as a victory just to be able to suit up each week.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • We’re all tired of it. And by “it,” we could be referring to so many things. Even in the world of sports. Whatever “it” is in your mind, I’m sure it intruded on your joyfulness Friday. It certainly did for us.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • There is an old newspaper adage about the missteps that crop up from time to time. Basically, the idea is to admit them and move on, because today’s paper is tomorrow’s bird-cage liner. And you get another opportunity to get it right today. Boy is that true this weekend.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Welcome to our version of “Sesame Street.” The word of the day on this last Thursday of November is “thanks” of course. And the number? Not sure just yet. We may have to count all the links and give you a total later.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • College basketball is tipping off the 2020-21 season today, though the schedule of your favorite team has probably changed already. Which brings up a pretty important question: Why are games being played? We know the answer of course, but we thought we would ask anyhow.
The 3.5 sacks Carlos Dunlap has in the three games he’s played for Seattle are impressive enough.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • As Gonzaga celebrated its 84-66 shellacking of Saint Mary’s on March 10, some folks realized it was head coach Mark Few’s 599th career victory. No. 600 was sure to come nine days later in Spokane, where the Zags would have played a 16-seed in the NCAA Tournament’s first round. Then it didn’t.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • A lot has been lost this year, in ways big and small. It’s huge in Washington there won’t be an Apple Cup game this Friday, but in the realm of the world, it’s probably a tiny blip on the year that is 2020.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Thanksgiving week is upon us. It begins without many things, including a Washington State game to analyze or a Seahawks’ game to anticipate. And, most importantly, thousands upon thousands of our fellow Americans whose lives were cut short by the insidious virus. But we want to stay true to the holiday’s mission and be thankful this morning, no matter how difficult it may be.
It came after a month of uncertainty, disappointment and downright ineptitude.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • “South Park” might be passé these days, but one of the shows better characters, Professor Chaos, would be right at home in 2020. After all, it’s a year of chaos and missteps, two things Butters Stotch always hopes for when he dons his aluminum foil costume.
