Good morning, Coug followers! For this week, I simply saved eager about how a lot this system has grown. And I do know after I’m in a transformative place in my life, I prefer to make a playlist. So I believed at the moment I might make you all one, however as an alternative it’s the Washington State Cougars’ basketball season up to now.
I’m calling it: Simply Warming Up (go cougs), and I shall be placing it on Spotify.
We start with the track I Want I Missed My Ex by Mahalia. This track is an anthem about being excited to maneuver onto larger and higher issues, however ought to under no circumstances be in comparison with any period earlier than #NerdBall. Under no circumstances. Don’t learn into it.
Subsequent, a track to explain the win in opposition to the Seattle Redhawks, the place the rating was 85-54. I’ve chosen We Are The Champions by Queen, for apparent causes.
After that, the Cougs went all the way down to Santa Clara and misplaced by Eight factors, which pointed me within the route of 8 by Billie Eilish. As a result of it’s kinda unhappy, and he or she simply swept the Grammys.
Then we beat Idaho State! And CJ Elleby had seven steals, so for that reason I’ve chosen Take The Cash And Run by Steve Miller Band. And that sport just isn’t a narrative about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue, two younger lovers with nothing higher to do. It’s a narrative about Elleby and Bonton, with a lot of basketball to play.
Then Omaha came visiting to Pullman and beat us, so I’ve chosen Massive Yellow Taxi by Counting Crows and Vanessa Carlton. Omaha paved our paradise within the second half. And people farmers undoubtedly didn’t put away the DDT.
Then we misplaced to the opposite Nebraska. And whereas this subsequent track is about in Texas, I threw one thing in for you Brad Paisley followers. Sure, you guessed it. Cloud of Mud. Moreover it’s about farming, and that’s about the one factor to do in Nebraska. I can say that, I dwell within the midwest. But it surely’s additionally a tragic track about loss. So.
Issues begin to lookup with a win in opposition to Outdated Dominion! I believe Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison is an efficient marker for this. I don’t care if the Geese remixed it first, it’s mine now.
Colorado State beat us after this, however we nonetheless performed nicely, and CJ Elleby was named to the all-tournament workforce. Plus this was the final of the Cayman Islands Traditional video games, so I actually don’t suppose being upset is serving anybody. I’m selecting the traditional Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da by The Beatles. As a result of life goes on. That can also be my favourite Beatles track.
We go onto win the subsequent SIX video games, and for all of them I’m assigning Know Your self by Drake, as a result of that’s the track with the enduring lyric ‘runnin by the 6 with my woes’ and what higher illustration of successful 6 video games in a row than that?
Up subsequent is the USC sport, and the track for it’s Dangerous Day by Daniel Powter. This was an off sport for Elleby, and we have been simply merely outscored and outnumbered. However typically it’s a must to hit some lows so the highs are even greater, proper?
UCLA went into time beyond regulation with a Cougar victory 79-71! This sport will get I’m a Believer by The Monkees! Southern California was out to get us, that’s the best way it appeared. However then I noticed that rating, now I’m a believer.
I don’t like Cal. In any sport. I’m going with Neglect You by CeeLo Inexperienced. I might use the opposite model, however I don’t suppose I’m allowed to make use of such sturdy language on the web. The sentiment stays. The way in which they play their sport ain’t honest.
Not a fan of Stanford both. We get it, you guys are good, okay? This sport will get Tubthumping by Chumbawamba which is simply primarily the lyric “I get knocked down, however I’ll stand up once more” repeated again and again. Additionally each the track title and the artist’s identify could be very humorous. And that makes me smile.
Time for the OREGON GAME!! Ah, wow. For this one I’m doing Pretend Love by Drake. I had not deliberate on doing a number of Drake songs, I actually don’t hearken to him that a lot. However this track suits the scenario, primarily as a result of to me this track is about when somebody frequently doubts you. And nobody thought we may do it, y’all. And but. 72-61.
Oregon State will get Again Dwelling by Andy Grammer for apparent, Klay Thompson causes. I do know that’s form of a cop out, however actually. It’s proper there.
Colorado Buffs, this sport will get Hollaback Woman by Gwen Stefani. I’ll clarify: on this track, she spells out ‘bananas’ and I’m nonetheless haunted by these college students sporting the banana costumes. Additionally, it’s an amazing Indignant Woman anthem, and that sport made me mad!
In opposition to Utah, we misplaced 64-76. This provides me Underneath Strain by Queen and David Bowie vibes. As soon as we began falling aside across the perimeter, it value us massive time.
And at last, in opposition to Arizona State. A sport winner by Elleby, this sport will get I’m Nonetheless Standing by Elton John. What a exceptional sport!
Clearly my music style is a bit everywhere, however I hope this contained some useful anecdotes that will help you survive the remainder of the season! Let’s go beat Arizona tomorrow! (I hope).
