    Hanging out at the homestead on the lower Methow River with my stepson and two dogs alternatively screaming, pacing, praying, having awful flashback memories, and then the shot heard 'round the world. Pure ecstasy.

    In my living room watching my wife crying on the floor because she had thought we lost on the put back by UCLA. She didn't see the game winner until the replay.

    I was setting in my recliner with my little dog setting in my lap.When the shot went in I yelled Noevell Jr., my dog looked at me like I was crazy, and my wife told me to shut up what's the matter with you ? I always yell Norvell Jr. when a Zag hits a 3pointer., but never as loud as I did then.

    That shot tied, not a go ahead shot

    Upstairs in the man cave by myself. Watched the first half in the living room with the wifey. It was the first game she’s watched this year, so we were convinced the tight game was her fault. To assure victory, I went up to the lucky man cave and made her turn on Bravo. Don’t worry, tomorrow night I won’t let her watch a second of it lol.

    Upstairs watching the game on the TV in the bedroom I then let out the loudest scream that was heard through out the whole house. My wife does not follow basketball so I moved upstairs for the last half. My yelling was pretty loud.

    I know, but she had thought that it put UCLA ahead in the moment with only 3.3 seconds left. She thought for sure we had lost.

    Alone in my living room, in a puddle of spilt drinks from the Suggs block of a dunk, followed by
    the save from out of bounds, followed by the fantastic bounce pass to Timme. My wife was watching
    with me until the scream on that play, the chocolate milkshake went flying, the diet soda also hit the
    floor, and she fled to a safer place. Later when THE SHOT was made, the loudest noise ever heard in our neighborhood emanated from my house. By now my wife was convinced that something BIG was
    happening (she saw 'the runner' with me in a sports bar in Addison, Texas, 4 days after our wedding
    on 3-18-99). She remained isolated until I came up and gave her a short recap. It went sort of like
    AUGHHHHH AUGHHHHHH AUGHHHHH. She said she would watch the replay in the morning.
    So the next morning (was that today?) she watched the game from the Suggs block, save, dunk,
    then calmly continued to observe until Suggs shot THE SHOT, and knowing something good happened,
    because, you know, I told her all the details last night, SHE SCREAMED like crazy. And that's about
    the story of our marriage. We only scream when absolutely necessary. This was absolutely necessary...

    I was in my living room close to 55" screen with sports buddy.

    When they tied the game with the lay-in with less than 10 seconds left,
    I was commenting to him that without Andrew's NERVES OF STEEL 3 pointer, we would not be going to overtime. I was saying I thought we would take them in overtime because they cannot play out of their minds forever.
    Then the Suggs shot from halfway between the top of the key and half-court. My body flew up towards the ceiling like Musk's Space X rocket was powering my butt. I am still hoarse from hollering about that shot. When we recruited Suggs I commented somewhere on our board we needed a go-to guard, like Deladovada (sp?) to have the ball in his hand in the last seconds of a close game. Damn. Suggs is that man, if we are close at the end of game with Baylor I hope Few will put the ball in his or Andrew's hands again.

    In Cozumel Mexico at a sports bar called Red Zone with 3 other companions and a scattered few around the bar. As the game went on the few others in the bar and the staff started cheering for the Zags. It was amazing how all all three of us jumped up in unison when the shot went in and screamed at the same time (along with the others in the bar!). I was here in 2017 when they lost the championship game (different bar), so I'm hoping the new bar continues with W's tomorrow!

    At the Valley Ranch Twin Peaks in Irving, TX. I was joined by Big D, daughter and her BF, son #2, and wife. There were several other Zag fans there, and the sounds were similar to Adam's when Jalen nailed the shot.

    We've been there for every game in the tournament, we'll be there tomorrow night.

    In a local bar watching the game with three Bruins fans. For most of the game, they were saying that they just hoped UCLA would keep it close and not get blown out. When it went to OT, they were full on guaranteeing a UCLA victory. Two of them left immediately after the shot, and the third wasn't far behind them.
    My posts indicate that I don't seem to follow college basketball all that closely.

    Home, nervously tapping out the start of the BZ Bulldog of the Game Thread. . .I quit typing when the OT started. . .when the shot went in I laughed, cried a bit, saw my phone blow up, then went back & finished the POG thread & poll. . .

    On the phone with my Bro who moved to Florida, as I have been for every Zag game this year. He has a 30 second or so delay from me, so we sync at the tip-off. We used to go out to the local watering hole "Caddyshack" but next best thing is a beer in hand and a Zag game on the tellly. Miss my brother but never miss an opportunity to be a die hard Zag fan. Might as Well WIN IT! Go Zags make history! Either way I am a Zag fan that is proud of this team.

    On the couch with my wife, who has her Post Grad Degree from UM, and when the shot went in she leaped up, almost on the coffee table grabbed me and continued jumping and hollering really loud. We live in a seniors community but thought she was so loud, that her scream might wake the dead!!! Me, well I was just sitting there knowing there would be a 2nd overtime until...

    In Our hotel room in LA. Thought I’d be in a sports bar but low and behold, no TV allowed in the bars there. I was also surprised at the lack of UCLA gear I saw (next to none) the day before and the day of the game.
