Dear Dr. Universe: Why do we get tears when we yawn? – Ella, 8, Australia. Dear Ella, You’re right, a lot of people get tears when they yawn. When you yawn, you actually use lots of muscles in your face. Maybe you can feel the stretch in your jaw, cheeks and eyes.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Let’s keep this short and sour, shall we? After all, you want to get to the NFL on a Sunday in which the Seahawks play the day’s final game. That leaves all of the daylight hours to watch RedZone, snack and prepare yourself for whatever happens in the Phoenix area tonight.
The only thing Washington State fans have wanted to talk about the last two weeks seemed to be the last thing their head coach wanted to discuss after the team's second scrimmage, but also the main thing he'll have to figure out before the Cougars board an airplane to Corvallis two weeks for now.
The first one was mighty successful, so Washington State figured it couldn't hurt to go back to the Mauigoa family football tree.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • It’s kind of fun when the weather changes. It’s part of the joy of living in an area with four distinct seasons. But when the snow gods decide to visit with more than a half-foot of fun in late October, that seems a little over the top. Still, high school football went on in North Idaho, even as the white stuff obscured much of the fields.
One way or the other, in mid-October or late-November, Mother Nature was bound to interfere with Washington State's late-starting 2020 football season.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Not sure if we are going to get snowed under this afternoon – the forecast calls for 3-to-5 inches of the stuff and it’s only late October – but I do know this: we were snowed under by the amount of stories available to link this morning.
Given what we saw last year from Washington State’s defense, it would be almost preposterous to think that group would be a step ahead of the highly productive offense come Nov. 7, when the Cougars open the season at Oregon State.
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.
Willie Taylor III finds himself at a new position for Washington State this fall. It’s probably best he doesn’t get too comfortable.
Klay Thompson took a break from his main priority this offseason – rehabilitating a torn ACL – to fulfill the last wish of a Golden State Warriors fan facing Stage 4 breast cancer.
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.
Washington State still doesn’t know what time it will kick off the Nov. 7 season opener against Oregon State, but the Pac-12 Conference announced possible starting times and television slots for both of the Cougars’ Friday games later on in the year.
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?
Washington State University’s Center for Innovation is looking people with creative ideas to solve a current or future problem related to COVID-19.
The Pac-12 has established cancellation and tiebreaker policies for its virus-truncated football season.
It accounted for 115 points (a Pac-12 high) last season. It didn’t miss until late November. It bailed Washington State out two years ago at Stanford, as the Cougars closed in on the best record in program history.
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 variety of circumstances – some related to COVID-19, others not – could usher WSU's youngest players onto the field earlier than expected this season. Unlike other years, when WSU's freshmen would spend much of their first season learning the nuts and bolts of the playbook, in 2020 they'll benefit from being on a level playing field as their older teammates.
