    Games in K1: One during the DD era

    Games in K2: All but a couple, and those were only missed because of parental commitments

    Board history: My name is LovetheZags and I've had a lurking addiction for about 2 years. With the exception of a very dark week last March following something I only refer to "the incident", I've been scouring the site on a daily basis in order to get my Zag fix.

    location: Wenatchee; thought about some weird response about how no matter where you go there you are, but no, I really am in Wenatchee. Yes, it sux.

    connection: attended GU from 82-86, graduated 1998. Former debater (where is Gonzdb8?), theatre guy, all around idiot.

    Games in K1: many; none that I can remember.
    BiS: The last two BIS.
    Games in K2: NONE (remember that when I beg for tix)

    Board history: 115+ posts, none memorable. The only person on this board who thought it was cool that the University of Maine kept the game with Nevada fairly close. And, heck, my hockey team is ranked #7 in the country....

    Final comments: Love the board, happy with the posters. Wondering where the heck Zagzilla is.

    love: mbb

    Living in Lakewood, Washington. Just across the street from Tacoma.

    Raised in Yakima, Washington. Attended Marquette High. Graduated in '66.

    Attended GU from '66 -'70. A member of the Gonzaga Bulldogs basketball team.

    In '66-67, when I was a Freshman, GU finished 20th in the nation. That may have been the first time GU finished in the top 20. Back in that time, only 16 teams were invited to the National NCAA tournament. Back then 16 was a lot because before that it was only 4. We never made it to the Dance. Gary Lechman was the Center at 6'5" and was an All-American. I believe he was drafted by the Super Sonics. Billie Sutor was there as well. He was a 5'9" guard from Morton, WA (little 'ol B school) who was a legend at GU and was working with the team as an assistant while he completed his degree. Paz Roacha, was the point guard. He took Billy's place and was also 5'9". Other's I'll always remember and good friends: Joe McNair, Paz Roacha, Doug Rehaume, Chris Nickola, Tom Hunt, Mike McGinley.

    Attended all games in Kenedy and went to all away games too.

    Joined GUnation on Scout.com in July of '06. Regular poster. I'm a proud member of GUNation, and somewhere deep inside, over all these years, I've not forgotten that I am a Zag and part of the wonderful history we've made together.

    Default Hi, I'm TheZagPhish and I'm a Zagaholic

    Location: West South Hill, Spokane

    GU Connection: Sister in law grad, two buddies pose as professors. Whole family is into Zags, including parents-in-law and three great grandparents in AZ, sister-in-law in Seattle. GU games are the glue of the family, methinks.

    Games in K2: Two officially - Men's: Preseason Portland State 05-06; Women's: Regular season, Portland State 05-06. But 12-yr-old daughter went to the basketball camp there last month - that count?

    Board History: Neophyte lurker and random poster. Think I had a whopping nine posts at the last board. Been mistaken a couple of times as an old poster in a new handle - is that a compliment?

    Standard Method of Zag Game Intake: In Zag gear watching the game on TiVo with lovely wife and periodic drop-in by laptop-toting daughter. TiVo is key or we'd never be able to rewind and slo mo the killer plays and questionable fouls.
    Last edited by TheZagPhish; 02-07-2007 at 10:47 PM. Reason: Mrs. ZagPhish pointed out that she was left out of this post - and watching the games with her is the best part. Doh!

    Default Silicon's story

    I am a classmate of Reborn Zag. I live in Napa. I kind of rediscovered the Zags when I was working in the Silicon Valley. My lowest moment was in March of 2006 when we frittered away an 18 point lead to some miserable Bruins from Los Angeles.

    If you want, I can write some poetry for you guys!

    GU Connection: Wife went there, numerous friends and other family went, I graduated G-Prep in '88. Was confirmed and married in St. Al's. Just a long history with the school

    Games in K2: Go 3-4 times per year, otherwise prefer to watch at home with wife and kids all in full Zag's gear after watching the good luck bunnies with my daughters on every game day.


    Board History: Lurked for about a couple years on the other board. Started posting about 2 yrs ago. Not an analyst, but a huge GU Bball fan.

    Location: Miami,FL (obviously)

    GU Connection: late 90's tourney games as an impressionable youth. hooked ever since. thankfully gives some balance to my college bball palate since Miami consistently is mind-bogglingly awful and poorly-coached.

    Games in K2: hopefully soon. donors welcome.

    Board History: mostly lurking for the past 3 years or so. getting the inside info from BZ esp during summer play tops my charts.

    GU Connection: Nephew is being recruited by GU (class of 09). I moved here from MI in 2003 (GO BLUE!), had no idea what Gonzaga was, much less how popular the men's basketball team was! Invited my neph to come to visit, my husband knows a former player and told him neph was a baller, player told neph to go to camp while he was here, and the rest is history.

    Games in K2: Three, all last year. Looking to go again this year! Ski season does get in the way, though...

    Board History: Was invited to post on the board by BobZag 2 years ago.

    I do love Spokane and would never move back to Michigan!

    Games in K2: 1--St. Joe's last year. Countless games in the old Kennel, and the BiS games over on this side.
