So a few years ago I mailed a Gonzaga lawn Gnome to friends in upstate New York. They had joined us one year at the WCC tournament and are great GU fans. Well, they put the little guy out on their patio and would then move it either closer to the house, or farther away from the house depending on the outcome of each game. I called yesterday to say that I hoped the Gnome was IN THE HOUSE at this point- they responded by saying that not only was it in the house, that they are sleeping with it!!!! Zag Nation - know that you have friends in the Catskill Mountains!

We have Gnomey beside the TV year round, but during games he always gets a prime seat, and my 8-year-old likes to rub his hat for good luck. His hat is well-polished.

Should be easy enough to fix after all gnomes are pretty well known as glue guys.
