    RIP Bob, you will be missed. Beautiful tribute CDC, very hard to keep a dry eye here.

      Thank you for sharing your words, and the notice of his passing. I will always remember him from that old Scout board as well, and for his work in getting things transitioned over here, to what has become this wonderful community. May he rest in peace.

        RIP BZ. You are already missed. We are doomed.

          Never met BZ in person. Thanks to him I reconnected with old friends and made new ones, some of whom I have never met in person [but would still trust with money, well one of them anyway].

          Also in the early early days before media embraced the internet, I got inside scoops on Gonzaga B-Ball and got to chuckle at the same time.

          He humored me about my "Bowser" posts and, in his own way, egged me on to do more outrageous posts. I had a lot of fun.

          I understand he had a hard life but chose a path which brought him joy.

          If SnapCo was still in business, you can bet your bottom dollar that a commemorative would be in production.

          Rest in peace my brother.

          Your Pal,

              He was my favorite poster to respond to and he gave me helpful advice. He is so much more now not just the aspect of himself that I knew as Bobzag.

                    Great tribute CDC, I remember when I joined the board back in 08 (as Gray'sAnatomy) BobZag was always a must read for me. His posts were insightful and funny. I never met him in person, but we chatted a few times in PM, and he was always a great encouragement.

                    As I've been less and less involved on this board, I am not in the know of much of the goings on; but I have wondered multiple times what was going on with BZ to cause him to post less and less.

                    My thoughts are with him and his family.

                    He will be missed.

                          This past weekend the Gonzaga family lost not only one of its greatest basketball fans and alumni, but also one of the greatest friends I have ever had in this board's admin, BobZag.

                          I ask all of you to think of BZ and his family in the coming days. (he) was and still is a testament to the strength of the human spirit. Thanks big guy for all that you did for me and for being my friend.


                          Thanks, CDC, for your personal and moving tribute to BobZag. This board is a legacy from him, and shared by you, early co-founders, moderators to the present day and all of the persistent, positive and provocative posters. The gift to us is a forum to follow the Zags, enhance our knowledge and share views along with other fans. Thanks to BZ and all who strive to preserve its high quality.

                            Sad, sad news. Bob was one of a kind. I had the pleasure of meeting him at Elias Harris debut at KITK in '09. He resurrected this board from the ashes of the original and we all owe him for that. RIP BOB.

                              Very sad news. Bobzag had a gravitas matched by no other. It was disappointing when he quit commenting as much, but it was like finding an Easter egg or some other treasure when he did. May God bless you and your family.

                                BZ you will be missed, your presence will always be part of this board.
