First off, the team was really relaxed and having a great time. Robert Sacre is freakin huge. He is going to be a great one. Joseph(fellow Canadian) was chatting with Sacre. It was s good sight to see.

The team started off seriously, but became loose by the end of it. The big men did their drills, while the guards did their's. At the end Micah, Matt, Steven, and Jeremy shot from half-court. Micah swished his shot.

While entering the tunnel, I got Heytvelt, Downs, Sacre, Daye, Bouldin, and Pargo to sign my GU shirt. One of the best experience of my life.

Something random...A reporter from the Spokesman Review interviewed me and asked me how and why I was a fan of Gonzaga. He had his recorder going the whole time. Not sure who it was but he was a great guy. It felt kind of weird answering questions, but I had a great time.

Anyways, the team is ready and prepared for Friday Night. I can't wait to be there live. I forgot my camera today, but will be sure to take it tomorrow.:D

Also, saw (estimate) about 20-30 Gonzaga fans at the practice today. Wondering if any were from this board?

I'll probably have another update tomorrow as the atmosphere at the game should be great. Can't wait.

AWESOME. You are so lucky to be down there already!! I'll be arriving at about 7pm, where are you sitting?

Remember, I'll have a #3 jersey that says "AMMO" on the back, and will have a bit of a ratted up white zags hat.

Not the original "ratted up zags hat" that one was lost at sea... or lost on the river whatever you want to call it. Sad story that hat had lots of memories.

Have fun in Memphis without me!

I'm in Section 221, row P or Q.

Also, after the game Beale St is a great place to go, if you want great food and a fun time. I plan on getting a double order of the BBQ Nachos from Neely's, I recommend them woohoo.:D

Hope to see you there. I will either be wearing a grey Gonzaga hoodie or a grey Gonzaga shirt.
