Cougs win … oh yeah, Sasquatch win

KENNEWICK — A good day in the world of my beat. This weekend, as you may know, I am in the Tri-Cities covering the Community Colleges of Spokane (the Sasquatch) in the NWAACC basketball tournament. Both the men and women won, and here’s my story.

The crowds at the Toyota Center for the CC bball games are respectable, though they seem to be mostly friends and family of the athletes. But there are so many athletes here the fans add up.

While I was writing the above story, I flipped the media room TV over to the WSU-Cal game. I watched it through my peripheral vision while I wrote, and once I finished I laid back and watched the rest of the game (probably the last 15 minutes). The Cougars, of course, are my actual beat.

What I found interesting — but not surprising — was that once I turned back on the volume, people started trickling into the media room. NWAACC tournament volunteers, all of them, and some team coaches. While there were CC tournament games going on across the hallway in the arena, many of us just ignored them and watched the Cougars crush Cal. I think that shows where Eastern Washington’s true passion is.

EDIT: By the way, I’ll be doing another “where I work” video this weekend. Keep on the lookout.
