A GRIP ON SPORTS • For years, winter hit without a warning. Then HBO turned a cult novel into a phenomenon and the season lost its anonymity. Yes, winter is coming, and with it comes a bunch of new questions for the local sports community.
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.
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.
SEATTLE — Seattle Sounders forward Raul Ruidiaz, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday while with his Peruvian national team, could be available for selection for the club’s Oct. 27 match vs. Vancouver.
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 • 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.

A GRIP ON SPORTS • It hasn’t happened before. The Seattle Seahawks have never started a season by winning their first five games. They have a chance to do just that tonight, hosting Minnesota on Sunday Night Football. Will they get it done?
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Is this the last, best day of 2020? If you’re talking weather in the Spokane area, then yes. If you’re talking about sports, then no. Not by a long shot.
The inclination is to worry about the Sounders FC being without their top goal-scorer in Raul Ruidiaz.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Well, that streak lasted one day. Today we have to write about things we don’t like writing about, though it’s not sports related. And, of course, some sports. A championship, actually. In the Northwest. That’s fun.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Might as well count our blessings this morning. After all, it’s a good day when you don’t have to write about a childhood hero passing. Or an NFL team in semi-quarantine after a virus breakout. There is bad news of course. Both the Yankees and Astros won their playoff games.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • The Pac-12 revealed its third edition of the 2020 football schedule Saturday morning on the networks’ pregame shows. Then the reaction to the schedules filled up the columns of West Coast newspapers and websites the rest of the day. As one could expect, the responses were mixed.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m tired of this crud. When the news broke yesterday Bob Gibson had died, I wanted to fire a high-and-tight fastball under 2020’s chin. Enough is freaking enough.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • It’s Friday. Again. And the weekend beckons. Again. So what is there to watch?

A GRIP ON SPORTS • It’s an NFL Sunday, so let’s get right at it. There is a lot to cover.
