    Default Where is Bowser?

    He usually weighs in by this time. I really want to know his various opinions about the Tournament and associated subjects. I'm sure he would have something to say about Kimmel.

    He probably is busy plopping down the last $15K of Snapco's assets on a bet for GU to win it all.

    Yo Bird,

    Been off the grid for a substantial period and luckily found a small town library that would let me access the web without asking a lot of questions. I'll be "in town" for a couple of days, so I hope you can reply before I take off.

    So, tell me, are the Zags worth a #### this year? I'm hoping they are but you never know. All the seasons run together after awhile anyway. I guess the tournament is about to start because I saw all the NCAA merch at the 7-11 when I was picking up some Red Bull and a fritter. Yum. Looking forward to a string of games with unbalanced officiating and raving sociopath announcers. You know the ones. Fouls. One team breathes on the other: intentional foul. The other team hammers an offensive player: no call, or better yet, offensive foul. Still not over Zach Collins. Apparently there is a sports bar the next street over, so I'll be checking it out and getting a rubdown. And no, not from a "girl named Linda Lu." As I recall, she was your friend.

    Figured GU must be doing OK because I heard about the Jimmy Kimmel joke about not knowing whether "Gonzaga exists." LOL. I didn't know he was a tweaker and a metaphysician. Nice combination. Handy.

    Remember the eight foot cod-piece mock-up SnapCo did for the NCAA Convention in 2014? I think it was the Steelhead, part of the salmonid collection. If some of the old crew is still wandering around in Winlock, you should ship the thing to Kimmel. C.O.D. He'll know what to do with it. He's an epistemologist or environmentalist or evangelist or something. And its Hollywood. LOL.

    Still cogitating on your theory that advances in the pharmacological treatments for ED deflated the cod-piece market. Try selling that one to the Hoover Institute. LOL.

    Hope you and yours are fine.

    Your Pal,

    Bowser

    Close but incorrect. (1) Bird doesn't like the Miller's Tale. (2) He thinks red snapper is a treat. (3) He is unindicted. Currently.

    Bowser, i feel like a parent talking down to child when I address your comments. The "Steelhead" was in Wishram, we never had much at Winlock. You are probably getting that confused with the night we got drunk and tried to steal the Giant Egg statue. There was a report that "The Steelhead" was in Greg Heister's basement rumpus room neatly displayed on a shelf alongside his retired hairpieces and right next to his collection of Tenkara rods.

    The last codpiece I saw was the "RazzPutin" which as you should know, was an extra extra small. Don't you remember? before his little dustup, Mannafort was going to deliver it to his Ukrainian buddy so it could be "discovered" and hopefully be the cause of some embarrassment. I don't think those "contractor spies" ever did pay us for it and it was last seen in Gotebo OK.

    Zags are pretty good.

    You're right. I am wrong. About the locale and the 'piece. Which made me think: Kimmel should get the other mockup from the Cities of Washington collection, the Wishram. Fitting.

    And the "Golden Weasel" had a lot of promise. Sixteen plus and marked "USA - Small". Sad.

    I wish Bowser could write about how to make a burrito again. We lost that post. One of the greatest in the history of our forum.

    I had to find a picture of Gotebo since I am unfamiliar with that locale. This is what I found.

    Yep, the old OK SnapCo factory is showing it's age and neglect. At one time after closing Bowser was working on a scheme to convert it to "interval ownership" dwelling units.

    Last I heard from Bowser he was trying to dig up a paper copy of that post I think? Perhaps Jane has it in a scrapbook.

    He’s been spreading conspiracy theories that Gonzaga is a real university and that it is located somewhere in Washington State. It’s unreal that people fall for things like that.

    I am killing Bowser today. I really see no point. I have posted nonsense on this Board and its' 3 or 4 predecessors for, Jesus, I think it's been over 20 years.

    I am actually a pretty quiet guy, moderate drinker, good driver and loyal husband and father, know nothing about extradition treaties, never had a hot oil message and avoid hot tubs for sanitary reasons . . . pretty much the opposite of "Bowser".

    Have had a lot of fun over the years but that has changed. I don't get much of a charge out of being the GUB version of Al Czervik. Some of you are good friends and always will be . . . even though there are a number of you good friends whom I've never met in person. I appreciate those of you who seem to have actual basketball knowledge. I sure as hell don't. I have the distinct feeling some of you "are really not that into me." I got no problem with that. To each his, her or whatever own. That's your deal.

    No matter. I wish you all well. Even the pearl clutchers and window lickers.

    Because there is at least one thing on which we all agree: Go Zags.

    Your Pal, Bowser

    PS: In the unlikely event I actually find my paper print out of Surfmonkey's classic "How to Make a Burrito", I will send it to one of you dweebs so you can post it for old time's sake.
