I came for the COUGS...
And stayed for the Zags. I’m a native son of the Palouse, born in Moscow when my dad was Sports Information Director at Idaho. I think he was among the architects of the original Big Sky Conference in the early 1960s. He took me to my first basketball game, Gonzaga at Idaho. For a little boy, it was LOUD and the very name “Gonzaga” struck fear. We moved away but I returned for college at WSU. I live in Norman, OK, a great college sports town, and I commute daily to work in Oklahoma City. Whenever the Press Box Podcast is talking about the COUGS or Zags, I’m listening via my phone, which talks to my car. It’s a miracle. Larry Weir has such a nice broadcasting presence. He practically brought me to tears talking about Bob Robertson. This is too long but I just want you to know you’re reaching people out here. Also, I recently took the New York Times Regional Dialect Test. Despite living in Oklahoma for nearly 36 years, I tested positive for “Spokane!” I’m certain that’s one reason I love the PBP!
Why bother with Karr, he’s an employee and flack for GU? Hardly an objective view, he poo poohed the dreadful turnovers vs Duke and T-ton, parroting Few’s alibis.
Hayley Guenthner is such a strong news presence. She seems to be a regular Walter Cronkite. Keep up the good work Haley! Can you read?
