    Race horse basketball is a winning strategy, until it isn't. The power of prayer is apparently overestimated against the good three point shooting teams. I am glad I am in Italy and don't have to...

    It would be the number one game for some of us. There are quite a few double alums (GU and Creighton). The Clink is a wonderful venue. It will be loud and very partisan. The alumni even know the...

    Sei pazzo da legare.

    I think the chances for the FF just went up with the Seminole victory over X, but 20 points, I think not. Still love you though.

    SDSU serves no purpose but to ugly up basketball games. The Zags simply don't want to play that way. That combined with the game being on the road and a bunch of guys with little experience or...

    Ciao Ragazzi

    Thanks Gentlemen. Are there any good flights from Pisa to Spokane that any of you know of? �� The Jays are a big question mark next year. They have to find a good PG and the loss of Justin Patton to...
  12. Tuscan Perspectives and Uncle Jimmy's Pub

    Hi everyone, Sili here. To begin with the conclusion--CONGRATULATIONS. It was a almost a near miss, but a victory is a victory. And unlike 10 years ago, we didn't fold in our tents.
