    Location: Five mile, Spokane

    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.

        Location: Davenport, WA.

        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!

            GU Connection: Lifelong fan, former Gonzaga basketball camp loyalist.

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

            Board History: Posting fell off once I realized I had to do my college work. Now that I'm back in the working world, hoping to reinvent myself as an active poster.

                GU Connection: Graduate of 2002. Friend of, and lived with, a few past Kennel Club Presidents during it's last true years before being overrun by the University.

                Games in K2: The Big "O." However I was sitting directly behind Dick Vitale at the GU vs. Duke game, and right next to Jim Calhoun a few years back.

                Board History: Nothing of any real significance.

                    Board History: Found the board while looking for Kennel Club shirts, lurked awhile and then posted under the wife's name till I joined in 2003. Occasionally supply video and game photos for people on the board

                            Some other boards have a Thread Archive forum with sub-forums for All-Star Threads and Dead Threads... it could happen here.
                            So little to say and so much time.

                              GU Connection: None...but that doesn't mean I'm not a zag!

                              Games in K2: None in K2...

                              Games in K1: Do you HAVE to rub it in??

                              Board History: Eh...member of the old board for like 2 and a half years or so. Started my board postage career being extremely annoying, immature, and a huge pest with nothing real to add to the board. wait a second...uh oh

                              • Location: Suburban Memphis

                                GU Connection: Watched Santangelo, Frahm and Calvary take highly ranked Kansas to the wire and decided I liked that team. Loved the Elite 8 run that year, and the S16 runs the following years. Was a big GU fan until Ammo, now have mixed emotions about GU.

                                Games in K2: Nada

                                Board History: Good question. Have been a semi regular since the week before Ammo dropped 44 (or whatever it was) on UW last season. May have visited sparingly before that, can't recall.
