    GU Connection: Daughter graduated from GU law school. I started following the Zags when our high school basketball coach in Santa Maria (Adrian Buoncristiani) went north to coach the Zags. I became aquainted with the campus and staff by doing some promotional work with the school.

    Games in K2: sorry....none. Went to a few in K1 and a couple of arena games.

    Default Hi

    Location: Valleyford, for now.

    GU Connection: No personal connection, but have many friends who graduated from GU. Just spent countless hours making a Zag coffee table so I must be a fan.

    Games in K2: 2, this season. First was an exhibitiongame. Second was UW vs. Gonzaga, best game of the year!

    Board History: Lurked for many years, had probably 20 posts on the old site.

    Location: Now South Spokane, but our family home on Baldwin Avenue in the Gonzaga district has been continuously inhabited by a family member since the year Truman recalled MacArthur from Korea.

    GU Connection: Impossible to avoid, growing up in the GU district since 1951. I remember seeing Jean Claude Lefebvre towering above the congregation at 11:00 Mass at St. Al’s. I was in high school when Fran Burgess was a Zag. I joined the GU Young Democrats to campaign for Tom Foley’s first run for congress and for John Kennedy’s bid for the Presidency. Goood times. Very good times, indeed. The pallbearers at my Dad’s funeral at St. Al’s included the owners of Jack & Dan’s* (Jack, of course), the Bulldog, Bernie’s, and Jimmy’s (on Illinois). Dad went to daily Mass, but did enjoy socializing at GU area watering holes, giving it up only in Lent (except on Sundays, of course).

    Games in K2: Are you crazy? Do I look like I could bounce up and down like that without body parts flying off?.

    Board History: Member since January 2004.

    GU Connection: none, except i idolized John Stockton and tried to play like him. then i fell in love with them during their NCAA Tourney run with Casey, Matt, and the gang. I've been die-hard ever since! i've even managed to convert some locals. can you believe that?

    Games in K2: zero, but i plan on fixing that as soon as possible.

    Board History: i've been reading the board on and off for 2-3 years when i stumbled across it, but I rarely posted.

    GU Connection: '98 GU Grad (attended fall 94 - spring 98)

    Games in K2: 1 women's game in Feb '05. (FWIW, during my 4 years @ GU I attended probably 95% of both men's and women's home games.)

    Board History: I knew of GUnation/zaghooops since who knows when, but I didn't actually bother checking for/reading the message boards until late March 03. (soon after the GU-Arizona classic) I waited until mid-July 03 before I registered. I didn't make my first post until probably mid-October 03. Been here ever since.

    GU Connection: GU Law '05; grandparents, parents, sister, and brother-in-law are alums.

    Location: Vancouver [the one in the United States]

    GU Connection: Hung around in the mid 70s. Actually "awarded" a degree. I have a Gonzaga "chip" on my shoulder. I still love the place. I don't know why.

    Games in K2: Nada. In my day, by cracky, we called it Kennedy.

    Board History: Like GoZags, since before the "early" days. Lurked in the "early" days reading the sexual solicitaitons of three to four posters arguing over a motel room in Reno. Of course, I was hooked. Followed the thing through Rivals, Yahoo, Scout, etc. etc. Suspected one poster was an internet cross-dresser and a convincing one at that. Have annoyed everyone at some point in time. Infrequent posts but apparently several are well remembered due to their disturbing or eccentric nature. Alternate between one liners and satire/parody. Iconoclastic yet smooth as four fingers of a fine 18 year old scotch. Used to smoke cigars and throw beer bottles at fence posts. Mellowed alot but still considered a meanie and a whack job.

    John Winger: Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it's usually something unusual. But now I know why I have always lost women to guys like you. I mean, it's not just the uniform. It's the stories that you tell. So much fun and imagination. Lee Harvey, you are a madman. When you stole that cow, and your friend tried to make it with the cow. I want to party with you, cowboy. If the two of us got together, forget it.

    Location: Smack dab in the middle of Oklafriggenhoma.

    Connection (Zagness): Born and raised 3 blocks from campus, St Als, G Prep, GU '69. As a kid I used to watch them practice in the old gym on Boone Ave which later became the Russell Theater.

    Games: Haven't been to a home game since '70 or so, but have attended games in Colo Springs, Albq (twice), Memphis, and Tulsa.

    Been on one board or another since about '99, back then it was mostly just Jane, Angelo, GoZags, Hondo, Bowser, Russell, Bong, and some whose names I can't recall just now (frequent problem these days). I still miss Jane, she was special. I spend most of my time honing my skills as a curmudgeon, malcontent, and general all around itinerant ne'er do well.

    GU Connection: Graduated '02 w/English degree. Brother and cousins also went/go there. I have many friends still in Spokane, so I can be found at the Bulldog Tavern every few months.

    Games in K2: Just one so far. I went to the San Francisco game on 1/27/07. Amazing experience!

    Board History: I was originally thebeast in '01, forgot my password, became TheOriginalBeast. I mostly lurk and wear out my F5 key, I usually only post in Portland game-watching threads.

    I am loving this new board so very very much.
