First and foremost, I am very thankful for my family and friends this holiday season. I have welcomed two new members to my family the past few years and it has been the most rewarding experience in my life. They both have seen many GU games sitting in my lap or lying on the couch next to me. The hardest thing to learn is to internalize your excitement but still the occasional positive/negative outburst will happen. A group of us still find a way to attend at least a game per year and hopefully this will still hold true.

Of course, I am thankful for Gonzaga and as well as the men and lady hoopsters. Both staffs and teams represent the school in an ideal light of sportsmanship and achievement. I know it gets mentioned from time-to-time but I think GU standing on the threshold of history regarding consecutive conference championships deserves more discussion from the national media. It is a blessing to see so many former players stay involved and the new faces have been an absolute joy to watch this season. You don't have to look far to see all of the nightmares that are popping up around the country for college sports. Fighting, recruiting violations, and worst of all, crimes against children. I have spoken to several alumni from schools affected by these stories and it is has definitely altered their view of their teams and school as well. It gives you pause and makes you more thankful as a fan, alumnus, parent, or student.

I am also thankful for this board and community of colorful posters. Other GU boards just don't cut it and don't come close to achieving the spirited discourse that exists here.

I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope you can enjoy a safe and happy holiday with you and your family.

After several years of reading and posting here and on its predecessor Zagshoops.com, I would like to thank the moderators and administrators who work hard to keep this board family friendly, tasteful and respectful.

It only takes a couple of bad apples to completely ruin a board like this and I can proudly say that, because of the efforts of a few, this board is a great reflection of the character and spirit that is Gonzaga University.

A Merry and Blessed Christmas to you all.

That is a really cool pic. The closest I have been to a moose has been at a bar in North Beach ;).

Merry Christmas to everyone. I want to thank you all for your contributions to making this a very fun place to come to almost every day. I have to make an appointment at our local library every day now for an hour while waiting for my computer to be rebuilt. Being limited to an hour session each morning has been a challenge. I'm glad I am a part of this particular Gonzaga community which supports and admires all of the great things the Zags represent.

I wish a very Merry Christmas to everyone associated with GU as a student, athlete, coach, administrator, faculty, fan, alumni, etc. And I hope we all remember there are some folks out there in difficult circumstances. There is still plenty of time to donate a few bucks to your local food bank or whatever. Better yet, start 2012 right by signing up TODAY to begin making an automatic monthly donation of $5 or whatever you can afford to a local charity that serves the hungry or homeless in your area.

Ho Ho Ho

Sam Dower and Kevin Pangos made my Christmas. What a strong statement in the second half by Dower. We will win a lot of gutsy conference games just like this. Thanks Zags and Merry Christmas again!

Merry Christmas to you all! Please tell your families how you feel, especially this time of year. I am at work right now and there are two families in the hospital who very unselfishly gave the gift of life. My heart breaks for them.

I'm a kidney transplant recipient, and I appreciate how difficult it must be this time of year for the families of the deceased. The donor, family, medical personnel, and caregivers are angels, and always in my prayers.

Merry Christmas to you all, and hopefully the spirit of giving and loving lasts all year long.

Congrats Woohoo, very difficult present to beat! Not new Zag gear, but a new Zag!!!! Best wishes to you and Mrs. Woohoo and our new little Zag. Will the little Woohoo be playing for the men's or women's team?

Santa brought me EXACTLY what I was wishing for; a 6' 9" wing that can grab a quarter off the top of the backboard, dribbles like Dickau, shoots like Stepp and rebounds like Calvary. And, if I can figure out how to activate the card (over the internets), we paid extra for the immediate eligibility package!
