    My daughter was invited to a birthday party at chuck e cheese last weekend. For some reason the parents thought it would be cool to go at 10am. I head over to one of the basketball games. This particular game pays 100 tickets if you break the high score. The high score was 3. So what's a Dad to do. I decide I am going to beat the high score by one point every game. Next thing you know the high score is in the mid 80's and I have over 8,000 tickets. My wife was embarrassed because they had to refill the tickets in the machine twice. After years of watching my daughter get glow in the dark vampire teeth and tootsie rolls with her tickets she was finally going to get a cool prize. But that didn't happen because my daughter decided to do something that made me super proud. She gave the tickets to the birthday girl.

    I had a great 4 day weekend in Boise. When I saw Boise as a site last year I contacted my brother-in-law who lives over there. He said his dad would be able to get presale tickets due to being a season ticket holder. I thought great, we are going to get great tickets. We ended up in the upper balcony 2 rows from the very back. It was not a big deal because we still had a great view of the game. Here is a picture I took from my seat of the guys getting ready for game 2 against Ohio State.



    So, in that respect Taco Bell was a great arena to watch basketball. Only problem was there was not alcohol sold or taco bell in the arena. In spite of no alcohol, the fans were great and most of them were cheering for Gonzaga in both games. I wonder if that would have been different if Gonzaga was in the mountain west.

    Boise itself was great. I haven't been there in probably 12 years or so. My brother-in-law took me to numerous breweries around town. Some of them were decent and a couple were really good. Payette and Edge Brewing were probably my two favorites (good IPAs). I also enjoyed Barbarian brewing. Sockeye had a really tasty bourbon barrel stout. I went to a bar called Silly Birch before the first game. A zag alum paid for breakfast for everyone there and beers and mixed drinks were special priced. That place was cool and had good atmosphere at 9 in the morning.

    I went skiing on the off day to Bogus Basin. This place was cool. I just took up skiing this year, but my brother-in-law took me down some very challenging runs. I wiped out a few times, but had a blast. It was snowing really hard the whole time. Visibility was low, but fun was high.



    Also, as many of you know, Gonzaga won both games! That made it a perfect weekend.

    I was in Pocatello over the weekend as my 5th grade son played in a basketball tournament.

    My son is a good athlete and very scrappy and made lots of good defensive plays as well as getting rebounds no kid his height should be getting. I was really proud of him.

    What I was proudest of, though, wasn't his athletic achievements. His team was about to win a very competitive game, their third win of the day on Saturday. An opposing player had just fouled out and was letting his emotions out. My boy walked up to him and said, "Its ok. You played great" and patted him on the back. I'm getting tears in my eyes thinking about it right now.

    The world needs a lot more grace and decency. Good on him, and good on you and your wife.

    TOP TEN REASONS THE NCAA TOURNAMENT IS BETTER THAN SEX:

    10. When it's over, CBS plays "One Brief Shining Moment"

    9. It's okay to yell "Take it to the Hole !"

    8. Dick Vitale has fewer side effects than Viagra

    7. Two Words: Instant Replay

    6. Results posted on-line after every round

    5. Hot wings go better with basketball.

    4. Winning a “Sweet 16” match-up won't get you arrested

    3. You can talk about "seeding" without getting slapped

    2. All Action available in High Definition !

    And the Number One Reason the NCAA basketball tournament is better than sex:

    1. The Big Dance Lasts Three Weeks!

    I am so done with winter.
    Yesterday it was in the 50s, today it is sleeting/snowing.
    I guess being stuck in the house on all of the crappy weather days has motivated me to get a lot done though.

    I was entertained by all the coverage of Marcy Few in Boise. She was a teammate and acquaintance when I was an undergrad at Gonzaga. I will always maintain it was my friend Pat who was ultimately responsible for the Mark and Marcy nuptials. He was a little sweet on her and I think asked her out a couple of times and she escaped Pat by running off with Mark.

    Marcy was a helluva an 800 meter runner by the way. I think she either won state in Idaho or was second.

    I was distracted by the lollipops that everyone in their section had at the end of the game, did they do a give away and their section win? Even his dad had one!

    A friend has connections in the AD office at GU and promised to get Final 4 tickets if we get there. Hinted at this to my wife and she said, "Oh, you can go but you're going to pay."

    Which despite being married to her for 13 1/2 years, I have no idea what that means.

    I didn't go last year and regretted it.

    If I go this year, its right during her busy season and the kids will be home cuz of spring break.

    How much of a schmuck would I be if I took off for San Antonio?

    Let your conscience be your guide. . .

    What about bringing in Grandma or Grandpa to your place to help your wife wrangle the kids, etc. ??

    My father-in-law is in south east Asia and would be of no use as a helper around the house if he weren't out of the country.

    Mom's 90!

    The rest are in the great hereafter.

    It was a good suggestion though, we just happen to have old/dead parents.

    The Zags’ season is over. My wife just informed me that I have another life with two kids, two dogs, a job, and real world responsibilities. Who knew?
    Gonzaga has defeated Baylor, Illinois, Virginia, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA, Arizona, Creighton, Oklahoma, Florida State, Texas A&M, Oregon, Iowa, West Virginia, Auburn, USC, and Washington over just the past three seasons.
