    Ruth's Chris -Scottsdale, AZ, on a company "sales meeting." Was in the bar waiting for our table when Casey made the tip in. . .I was 40, could occasionally break 80 from the whites, and didn't need bi-focals.

    So it goes.

    That video still gives me goosebumps. . .

    At a game watch in the Ad Building. The party that broke out on the quad by the Wall/DeSmet after is one of my favorite memories ever.

    Was in a sports bar in Addison Texas watching game with my wife of 4 days. We were married 3/14/99 and had already seen the Zags win their first 2 NCAA Tournament games ever. I’ve been feeling like I forgot something recently. Oh. Our 20th anniversary. This marriage has never missed a tournament.

    When Florida's shot sailed wide I was jumping up and down in my Seattle apartment. 10 seconds later I was on the floor almost knocked out with a swollen face. I was so excited that I sprinted down the hall and couldn't stop when I got to the door. My friend ran up to me screaming "are you okay". I looked up grinning from ear to ear with a bit of blood dripping down my face. Best sports moment of my life!!

    I was working at Hemmingmoore Jewelers on North Division (Spokane) and my boss (Mr Hemmingmoore) let me go to Casa de Oro, across the street, to watch.

    I hadn't been a fan before that, but was sold and have been ever since...so yes. I jumped on the band wagon.
    It's not funny.

    Left work in CdA with some phony excuse - couldn't figure out where to go to watch the game - so ended up at North Idaho College, who had multiple TVs setup in the cafeteria. Was like a small GU-east - great atmosphere and super excited students!

    In downtown Phoenix, AZ watching some basketball game live. As I recall it was a very close finish when some tall blonde kid tipped in a basket very close to the end the place went crazy.

    Second year law at GU. That’s when I fell in love ... both with hoops and my future wife if now 19 years.

    I watched in my house in Missoula. I was a senior set to enroll at GU in the fall of 99 and that was basically the first college basketball game I ever watched. I'm spoiled.

    Losing my voice after calling in *ahem* sick (haven't done this since but don't regret it one bit) in section 204 of America West Arena with my mom, dad and sister. This is by far my favorite live basketball game memory.

    America West Arena with my girlfriend (now wife). Outside of the birth of our daughter one of my favorite memories of my life.

    Man. Good times. I was in my apartment in Burch with friends watching the game. After that Florida shot missed we exploded out of the apartment and ran down the street yelling at the top of our lungs and eventually got enmeshed into the huge blob of students that congregated on campus. Strangely, I don't remember much of the night after that point...

    I was at my then-girlfriend's house, and woke up her parents when I celebrated by running back and forth down the length of the house and jumping around the living room. They were happy for the Zags; not so happy with me.
