Good morning and Happy Hump Day, Cougs! We're going to step away from your usual 2013 Cougar Football coverage today to check in on the goings-on of former Shadle Park, Wazzu and Washington Redskin legend, Mark Rypien, as he competes in another sport he's pretty darn good at. He's competing on "Big Break: NFL" which debuted last night on the Golf Channel and will be airing every Tuesday at 6:00 PT through early December. (At the time of the conversation and as I write this, I have not yet seen the first episode.) Thanks to a huge assist from the Golf Channel, I had the chance to talk with Mark, who very graciously shared his experience on the show, as well as his thoughts on the Cougs and the recruitment of another Rypien currently making a name for himself in Spokane. For a rube like me, this was a pretty cool experience. I'm already a big fan of "Big Break" and having a Coug in the mix makes it a no-brainer for me to watch this season. I hope the rest of Cougar Nation will check it out as Rypien plays for a great cause and to help out a couple golfers as they try to catch their big break.
