Have any of you met other people from GU boards? There's really nothing quite like it. Especially if you've known the person for a lot of years on the board, and you like him or her a lot. This has happened to me three times now, and each time has been really really cool. Yesterday and today I spent time with GoZags. And he is just so awesome. He's nothing like I thought he was from following him on GUboards. He's so quiet on our forum. Just the opposite in real life. Can't stop talking, and he has so many really great stories to tell. This was truly a great week-end because of meeting him. One thing I can say about him is that he's one of the most thoughtful and kind person I've known. Most Zags I've met have this common trait. Pretty cool I think.

Go Zags!!!

I've had the pleasure of meeting a couple of people from GU boards, and have had a great time. Just watch out for annoyed Reds fans!

I've often wondered how often have I entertained an Angel and spoken to someone from GU Boards, and never realized it?

I really do not know, but I'd like to think both have happened.

Every GUBoard person I’ve met has been great. Quality people all. Special shoutout to my man Kitz - too bad we’re on opposite sides of the country.

I have met 4 or 5. Splendid chaps all.

I would like to meet some over a beer sometime, actually, I would like to meet several at that time. I could just become wall paper and listen (if I could keep my mouth shut)!

I really enjoy reading little personal stories, especially in the offseason then there isn't much going on with the Zags.

On this thread alone, I see two familiar names, webspinnre and willandi. Have also met in person LIZF, Abe, and amaronizag. Great gents all, this board has been a blessing in that regard. Scott257 and I will definitely meet this season, as the quest for a Zag gathering place continues.

That's okay, TZF.

I'll still claim that I've met you even if you don't claim "me".

On another note ... it was GREAT catching up with our man Reborn. The guy is all Zag through and through (i.e. the supreme compliment in my book)

Didn't mean to offend you GZ, I didn't include those that were on campus the same time as us, which means Reno wasn't mentioned, either.

I'm looking forward to adding more to this list. Nothing better in this world than meeting, and talking with, fellow Zag alumni and Zag fans.

The thing I love about meeting people from the forum is that you KNOW you're instantly friends, even though you've never met. Mostly because you have this understood PASSION in common.

I've probably met 25 people or so from the forum, and I keep in very close contact with probably 5-6 of them (and consider them GENUINE friends!)


I'll tell you what...ElVoce was one of the most special I've met. That guy was something else. Just an amazing person. RIP friend!!

I still remember seeing one of your posts, and it showing that you were from Bourbon, and I was instantly convinced someone was trolling me!! BAHA

We need to make sure and catch a game or two together this season. You still need to see zags man cave.

Just a suggestion to all, when you're in Spokane, stop by Will's shop. You can make wives, daughters, girlfriends really happy with gifts that won't break your budget. My wife loves the earrings she bought during our visit.

A thread I can sneak out of my cave for...

Have met in person (as best as my aging brain can remember):
NJZag (no idea where she disappeared to but let me and some friends crash at here AC home which I cannot thank her enough for)
Hondo (weakest link on a pub crawl)
ElVoce (RIP my friend and you were most assuredly the strongest link on a pub crawl)
TexasZagFan
RenoZag
WooHoo
BobZag
Kitz
Abe
GoZags
mediant (another among the missing)
MJGoGaels (not a Zag but truly a cool dude and worth having a beer or three with)
AZZag (pretty sure that is who I had breakfast with when I met up with woohoo in Vegas)
SteelCityZag (although I went to GU with this guy... so not sure if that counts based on Tex's rules)
Zagmantis (again... went to school with this dude... not sure if that counts either... but he's a cool dude and knows my sis)
Phish... but to be honest... never have met face to face... but due to business purposes... have talked and texted extensively with him in the last few months

Lord knows I am forgetting a few people on that list. If I met you and didn't list please accept my forgiveness... I am craptastically bad with names in person as it is... adding aliases doesn't improve the situation.

ETA... feel free to call me out if I forgot you.... my brain would appreciate the help.

Here on GUboards he struck me as someone who doesn't have to post all the time, and when he does they seem short to me (compared to mine). In person he never stops talking, and is pretty funny (at least to me).

It's called "marrying up", a topic I'm quite familiar with. :lmao:

She's doing a great job on our home remodel FWIW. She's much more deliberative than me, and patient. Makes for some delays getting to a final decision, but the end results have been superlative.

Have met Hoopaholic and a fine gentleman that knows basketball he is. Talked to several at length on PM's and have plans to go fishing with Billirue. May have met other's by happenstance but didn't know who they were on this board. Also have had communication with a few Gael's board people that are great. My wife and I met a big group of Zag fans in Palm Desert that were at a giant table in a sports bar about three years back. No idea if any were GUB folks but probably some were.
I'd like to meet you all! I've met more players than GUB folks (that's awesome too). Is there a regular crowd that assembles at J&D's from this board? That would be a great way to meet the locals I would think. If they meet is there a particular schedule...i.e., every third Friday of the month or something like that? If so, how do you identify yourself as a GUB distinguished member? Then, is there a regular gathering place in Phoenix area during season? I'm in Goodyear and could set up a west valley gathering spot. I like the Yardhouse at the Sports complex in Glendale. Anyone interested?

I'm not going to "call you out" on this, LIZF. At my age, my memory has to be worse than yours. Just think of it as one old fart helping another to recall the past.

I do recall a certain breakfast in Las Vegas at NY-NY during the WCC Tournament, about 10-11 years ago. (It may have been the very first WCC tournament in Las Vegas.) You can add the following to your list:

Zagineer
ZaGranny
Jazzgirl_127

I'm not sure if you and Son of Zagineer (SOZ) ever got together over a beer, but I knew there was some talk about it way back in the past.

RenoZag - You can also add Jazzgirl_127 to your list too.

My list is much more modest. In no particular order,.....

El Voce
RenoZag
LIZF
Angelo Roncalli
Hondo
gozagswoohoo
ZaGranny
Jazzgirl_127
Bocco
TerpZag
Proudzagmom

There are a few more, but they have escaped my mind at the moment....
