I'm hijacking Reborn's usual "what are you excited about threads", and turning it Vegas style. as excited as i am about the upcoming adventure down to sin city, i would love to hear what others are excited about as well... this can hopefully get me through these last two and half weeks of school until im finally boarding that plane. what are you excited about for vegas, whether it be basketball related excitement or non basketball related excitement?

I personally am stoked for the crazy atmosphere all us zags are going to bring to the Orleans Arena. Theres nothing better than uniting with fellow zags for a basketball game hundreds of miles from home. Part of this excitement comes from the socials before the games, which are always a blast! Meeting zags of all ages, drinking our hearts to pleasure, and talking zag basketball!!! I'm also excited to finally have an excuse to hit the poker tables and have an excuse to gamble my savings account away! Well, actually i plan on hitting it big and doubling (at a minimum) that account. And finally, im excited to walk around one of the craziest cities in the country, and for every minute be proudly rockin my Gonzaga wear!

lets get pumped up, viva las vegas!!!

Knocking the rust off my golf clubs and testing a surgically repaired elbow.

No wife in tow ( though I will miss her ) she realizes this is a chance for me to hang out with some of the guys I graduated with in 1979.

Seeing & meeting people from this community.


Hurting myself at a buffet or two ;)


Oh, I also hear there's some basketball going on.

Excited that hopefully the Zags remember how to be as good as they can be.

Tower of Power! Funkiest band on the planet bar none.

Cajun food!

Strippers!, Mrs.blahla is out of the room.

Oh yeah and mini-me blahla says missing school and cheering the Zags to another WCC tournament title.

Did I say strippers yet?

777 on any slot I play.

Watching Omar manbra hamsan bite the big one as we put SMC away for the third and final time with or without Mills. ;)

Go!! Zags!!!

Im just excited to get away from Spokane's craptastic weather, with the misses of course. We have not had a vacation since our boys were born ( 5yrs ) so we are gonna live it up, 5 nights in vegas should be the antidote. I am extremely pumped for the games, we got ridiculous seats, 6 rows from the court, gambling eating and drinking will be a for sure as well. Excited to meet some people on this board too and well yes you get the idea.............2.5 weeks!

Looking forward to getting out of Spokane for a week and enjoying the Zags Vegas-style.

Hoping to see Patty Mills return so SMC has no excuses when we beat them for a third time.

Buffets!!!

Drinking and GAMBLING!!!! Come on lady luck, I've missed you!!!

haha, I was sitting around eating lunch at clinkerdaggers today, eating some great salmon. Then I think to myself, "hmm, you know what would be great right now, 3 pounds of shrimp and some cornbread." BUFFET, Vegas style!

Finally getting to go to Vegas without the wife.

You can find me at the poker tables if you want to join. Best game in the world is the 1-2 no limit. :D

My favorite place to play poker is Excalibur believe it or not. Big room. No smoking. Nice mix of good and not good players. Spin the wheel for money if you get quads or craked Aces (at least I hope they still that - won $200 with quad ladies).

I got my tickets in the mail today; I can't wait! The WCC tournament is one of my favorite sporting events of the year, and Vegas road trips are one of my favorite things to do, so combining the two is going to be ridiculously awesome. I'm very much looking forward to being a degenerate for five days and watching some basketball in between :D

Maybe we could meet up at some casino and get a poker game going one night? I wasn't planning on playing any poker in Vegas because it's what I do for a living (actually my screenname on UB where I play most of my hands is mattbouldin) but it would be cool to play with some Zags fans and talk about how amazing Dickau and Stepp were while getting free drinks, etc.

Go Zags!

Well the gambler in me can't pass that offer up. I know the Orleans has a room, but pretty basic. MGM is nice, but right next to foot traffic. The only other places I have played there are not worth mentioning. Let's find a place and hit it up.

if you really want to set up a GU fans game, both the MGM and Ceasars have good poker rooms where they will let ya have a dealer and start up your own game.
