Without sports, we have interviews!

A new side of our favorite players.

Good afternoon, Coug fans! Sorry for my delayed article today, I was in bed grieving the Blazer’s embarrassing loss in game two of the playoffs.

I’m kidding, Jeff, if you’re reading this!

Not much to update you on, in my life. I started a new job, which is nice. There’s still a pandemic, contrary to the beliefs of some college students across the country, which is not nice. If you’re in college and reading this, please be mindful, people are still dying.

As a fun way to pass the time now that we officially don’t have fall athletics, the YouTube account WSU Athletics is doing player interviews. Our soccer star Kelis Barton interviews Wide Receiver Travell Harris on his hobbies, pregame rituals, and of course- Rolo. I would highly recommend watching, even though we can’t have live sports, it’s nice to be able to interact with the athletes in some way. You can watch the interview here!

From what I gather, while we won’t see football this season, our players and coaches are focused on the next season and being the best they can be.

We’ve seen a lot of adapting so far just in engagement from the athletes, which is great. I do think it’s important for personal sanity to stay close to what we’re passionate about so we don’t lose sight of hope.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Please stay safe and healthy.

A GRIP ON SPORTS • Once again we find ourselves on the cusp of a weekend. A summer weekend. In previous years, a late August weekend would mean stealing some time to finish to-do items before our weekends disappear to football, college and pro, in the near future. Those chores are going to be tough to complete these days.
