~OFF TOPIC...sort of~ OH NOOOOOOO!~ Today is Friday the 13th!! The day of witches, broomsticks, black cats, and general bad luck. To most people it is all rather silly, but to many it is very real. If you are afflicted with the fear of Friday the 13th you are not alone. The Stress Management Center and Phobia Institue in North Carolina esitmates that between 17 and 21 million people in the United States have a diagnosable phobia of Friday the 13th. The illness is more properly known as "friggatriskaidekaphobia." It’s pronounced "fri-gah-tri-sk-eye-de-kah-fo-bia." The word, a portmanteau, means a person is afraid of Friday the 13th. Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13, and friggaphobia is the fear of Friday...If you put them together and you have friggatriskaidekaphobia. Now, I for one have never been afraid to walk under a ladder or break a glass window. But I AM curious about whether or not this dreadful day is something ZAG fans should fear as it relates to our team. You will be surprised at what I found out. Gonzaga has never played a game on Friday the 13th but they have played games on the 13th, and many of them. Here goes: 1/13/2011 Pepperdine 92-75 WIN 2/13/2010 San Diego 82-65 WIN 11/13/2007 Idaho 80-41 WIN 1/13/2007 Santa Clara 77-69 WIN 2/13/2006 Portland 97-83 WIN 1/13/2005 LMU 76-65 WIN 12/13/2003 MIssouri 87-80 WIN (O.T.) 2/13/2003 St. Mary's 73-49 WIN 1/13/2001 St. Mary's 102-48 WIN 1/13/2000 USF 96-73 WIN 12/13/1999 Wa Huskies 77-66 WIN 2/13/1999 San Diego 69-62 WIN 3/13/1999 Stanford 82-74 WIN We are undefeated on this day. There are 13 wins in games played on the 13th... and this has happened in the past 13 years! What does this all mean, exactly? I duhno....but I will say that apparently the 13th is a very, very, lucky day for ZAG Basketball!! GO ZAGS!!!!!~
HAPPY SELECTION SUNDAY!!! ESPN's Joe Lunardi has the Zags as a nine seed this morning in his latest bracketology. Missouri would be the Bulldogs first round matchup with Notre Dame lurking as the regions one-seed. Truthfully, this would be an ideal bracket. Mizzou is scary but inconsistent and I'd love another shot at the Irish.
GREAT NEWS!!~ Dear Mr. Dellevadova, I located your missing mouthpiece that was slapped off of your face in last night's beat down. Sorry about that. Strangely enough, it was located in this handsome fishys mouth... you do see the resemblance, right? Please, feel free to wear it again, with pride. Yours Truely, Gaz PS Good luck in the NIT.
-- ESPN's Bracketology Joe Lunardi must feel a bit silly. The ESPN resident bracketologist had the Zags as the NCAA Champion at the beginning of the season. Now, they are barely in his bracket at this time and slotted in as one of the teams that will have to take part in a play-in game. Hell, at least they're still in his bracket after a 4-4 start.
Would it be possible to update the schedule tab to reflect the 2010/2011 schedule? and while you are at it, maybe where these game might be viewed on television?
