    Default A picture is worth 1000 words!

    Take a look at the picture on page C5 in the Sports section of the Spokesman-Review. The utter joy on the face of the Zag in that frame almost reduced me tears. This kid defies description, he is my favorite Zag of All.

    Default Yep, its picture #9!

    I am very proud of my own son. But if, like Abraham, I was given another in my old age I would want him to just like Pendo.

    Default Post Script....

    And if I could get an autographed copy of that particular pic it would make this old retired HillBilly the happiest man in Spokane.

    Default Can't Say Enough About This Team!

    I've been a Zag fan all my life. Both my parents are grads, '70 and '72 and '73 law. I graduated in '99 and GU LAW in '02. My senior year was the elite eight run and a lot of the guys on the team were close friends. With all that being said, last night was as sweet as win as I can remember. The team has been through some much this year from lossing Ammo and Batista to the non conference schedule to the loss of a key player (I can't even mention his name). Being able to see them fight through it all and win last night really made me proud. D. Rav's performance last night reminded me of Matt S. in '99Matt took over that game, I think he had 35 point, and was unstoppable. That was D. Rav last night, there was no way he was going to lose that game. Pendo is all heart, I've never seen a guy willing to lay it all on line game in and game out. You could tell how bad he wanted to put D. Rav and Mallon back into the NCAA's. Downs really impressed me again, although he didn't have his best shooting night, he was all over the boards and played solid D. The Zags are going to be the team that nobody wants to play, just like they were in the beginning. I love it!!!

    P.S. Next year this team is going to be lights out. Pargo, Bouldin, Downs, Pendo... it just keeps rolling.

    I like number 6 myself. It looks like ol Danny is getting pulled away in a twister. I can hear him now. "There's no place like home, there's no place like home."

    Default I love the picture of Pendo.

    Somehow this picture says it all to me!!! The consumate warrior/gladiator after a victory in the pit. His 3 pt shot with 4 and a half to go was what this team lacked for so long...a guy to step up and hit the big shot. He did it against Memphis too....twice!!! Mostly for me last night with Pendo it was his boarding. He seemed to be jumping so high, and looked so tough and determined. More then usual and that says a lot!!!

    The beauty of all this to me is that Pendo is one example of The Zags. There are 9 others just like him, IMO who just come in different shapes and who all have different talents. They seem now to have found a way for it all to fit together and ONE....that is chemistry.....

    Reborn - Welcome back, I was starting to wonder if you fell off the planet

    The more I see that picture of Pendo, the more I think that really is the iconic statement of GU basketball from this year.

    Pure joy at winning - regardless of what gets thrown at you.

    The First Season is done and we traveled the nation and took on some of the most historic, and some of the best programs in the game - and beat a couple of them, and were in the game down to the wire in virtually every single one...

    The Second Season is done and our guys faced a major issue, and came away with their regular season title.

    The Third Season showed our guys turn up the intensity and teamwork another notch (this team goes to 11!) and won the WCC Championship and earn another season.

    Time to see what they do in our Fourth Season - all the teams records are set back to 0-0, and the gauntlet is getting ready.

    From the looks of it, I think Pendo's ready to take on anyone, anytime, anywhere...

    Default Amazing

    Check out photo # 13 - Did you ever think that you would see DR smiling and Matt B. yelling - much less in one photo. The emotion is there - they just have a lot of focus in the games.
