    Games in K2: One ( vs. St. Mary's, 2008 season )

    Games in K1: Just about all that took place while school was in session; show your ID at the door, find a spot in the bleachers, enjoy the show. Attendance was pretty sparse in that era.

        Location: Spokane, GU neigborhood

        GU connection: Live in the neighborhood, played on campus when I was a kid, went to G-Prep class of '80, brother in law is a GU grad.

        Games in K1: Saw Stockton play a high school game there.

        Games in K2: All of them with the exception of two games missed due to illness.

        Board History: On Scout since 2003 (I think) when I started a huge debate about the whole battle in Seattle thing, which I found horrible. Heytfelt had just verbaled to GU and I got caught doing a little flaming on the Husky board by GoZags - hehe. Just reached 1000 posts on the old board - here's to starting over.
        A Zag is generous.

        A Zag knows he is much more than the sum of his stats.

        A Zag has a desire to be part of something that is bigger than himself.
