    Default What is one quirky thing that you do that you believe helps the Zags win

    I put 3 exclamation points after GoZags. And in fact typing the whole thing GoZags!!! Is what I do. I started typing this many years ago, and each year we get better. When I first started this quirky thing, some Gu posters really started giving me sh?? for my obsession to continue to type those three !!!.

    Go Zags!!!

    I will switch viewing positions if things aren't going 'our' way. If the zags are on a scoring drought or something, I might get up and stand behind the couch. Or I might lay on the floor. Or start smashing a frying pan over my head. They have all been successful at times.

    I switch channels and stop watching the game. I don't know how many times the guys have been playing terribly, fallen behind, and I decided "It's me" and turned the channel. I'll text my dad or bro to tell me when they've come back. The OFTEN do come roaring back once I have turned the channel.

    I don't know how many wins this team has due to my determination that I am negatively impacting their play, and turning it off.

    I yell at the refs. I’m pretty sure they can hear me from my living room in New England.

    My kids hate me during basketball season...so do my neighbors...and the cat...especially since so many of these games play past midnight in my part of the country.

    I walk away from the tv for a minute when I lose my confidence...but rarely need to.

    I don't wear Zag's gear on gameday. If they lose, it's probably because I brushed against a T-shirt/sweatshirt/hat at sometime during the day.

    Sorry for those loses, I'll try to be more diligent in the future.

    I switch out my black Zags Uni for the blue one. I know I know, but black looks cooler

    Thanks DixieZag. I'm so glad to hear it works. Whatever it takes. Right?

    I never wear any red Zags' gear on game days. Navy blue. Preferrably a hoody.

    Respect the Game. Respect the Zags. Respect each other.

    You rock the navy blue Zag's hoodie .... at least you did at the U.S. Open (in the morning ... before it got hot)

    I take a tequila shot.

    No joke.

    Normally, I never drink the stuff, but keep it around solely for Gonzaga game days when the team is behind or in a drought, and needs a "rally shot".

    Matter of fact, maybe the board should join me in this occasion?

    60% of the time, it works every time.

    LOL... we should watch games together... maybe our collective roar will be heard by the refs. My wife is fond of pointing out that the Zags are dominating when I yell at the refs and reminding me that they cannot actually hear me. My response is... I know they are winning... it is the principle... and I am quite sure they can hear me.

    As a fan I feel it is my duty to give 100% 100% of the time. I imagine every shot going in, every rebound being controlled by our guys, etc.
    I will not go get a beer or head to the bathroom until a break. If I let down, I let down the team.
    My wife thinks I might be crazy and our dog is sure of it.

    I'm going all out this year...instead of no sex the day before the game, I'm swearing off sex from Midnight Madness through the rest of the season.

    Book your tickets to Minneapolis now!

    Maybe you could get your wife to lend a hand!

    I understand the importance of what we drink during the game, so I try to keep a good selection and adjust as needed. "Beer on whiskey, mighty risky, whiskey on beer, never fear". I start with beer!
    It's not funny.
