Good morning! As I tweeted yesterday, I was pouring a glass of milk, emptied the gallon, and looked down to see that the expiration date was September 1st. When I’m finishing off gallons that expire on game day, I know it’s getting close. Check the expiration date on your milk. If it’s anytime in September, rejoice! While we still have a few days until Saturday’s match up against San Diego State, at least the first games of the season are starting today. At this point, I’ll take any football I can get. Give me Eastern Michigan at Ball State, I don’t care! It isn’t like I’ll be watching any Pac-12 football, I have DirecTV.

A brand new documentary about the Husky program and fan base. If that trailer doesn’t give you chills, I don’t know what will. I, for one, am counting down the days until I can feel the noise of 70,000 fans once again. Well, maybe more like 55,000 this week.
Gregg Bell with an illuminating story on Danny Shelton’s perseverance in the face of a terrible experience. This, for me, is what sports writing is all about. Taking a look into the hearts and minds of these players and letting them amaze and humble you.
To be fair, I did say there would be a lot of Condotta. The guy is an all-star. This particular story is about the emergence of starting cornerback Tre Watson and his difficult journey from walk on to scholarship player.
