    Default Drew and Admon already doing cool stuff in Spokane!

    From Twitter this evening:

    Gonzaga men's basketball newcomers Admon Gilder and Drew Timme spent the evening reading to kids at the Spokane Public Library on the South Hill. The kids loved it.
    There is a short video on this twitter link

    Now that video is "really cool." There's really nothing quite like listening to what children have to say. I'm sure that's why I spent most of my life trying to help prepare them to live successfully.

    It's nice to see Drew and Admon sharing that Gonzaga love. As I sit here thinking about just THAT, I believe that the greatest thing that Gonzaga did for me when I was a student was just THAT, to go out into the world and share Gonzaga love.

    Go Zags!!!

    You know your team is young and new when you have to re-check who "Drew" and "Admon" are, needing last names.

    So, pair up two new teammates. One is a kid straight out of Texas high school, and the other is a savy college graduate from a Texas flagship university, and team them up to read to kids …someone at GU really knows what they're doing.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Do you suppose they had to take someone along to translate Texan?
    We didn't want the guy anyway.

    There was an article in the Spokesman about it today too!

    Gonzaga has enough experience in dealing with international players that they almost surely had a translator in the department ready to go. They may be among our first Texans, but not our first from foreign countries.
