Normally, we’d have something here about how Gonzaga put to lowly WCC foes to bed, and try to make it somewhat cute and/or funny. But this time, we have a sincere message: congrats to new Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Edgar Martinez.
It only took 10 years (about nine too long if you ask us), but the baseball writers finally got things right.
Which has nothing to do with Free Ira Brown, but seemed worth mentioning nonetheless.
But fear not, dear FIBber, the pod is back with its usual shenanigans. And in our latest episode, our heroes review the wins over Loyola Marymount in LA and over the Pilots our home-away-from-home, Portland.
Those stories, plus we dip our toes into the Triple Tower lineup, have a moment with Heister, wonder if it’s time to start worry about Zach’s shooting and curse BYU’s women.
We also take the time to protect ourselves from the flailing hands of Nick Emery, the middle-aged hands of TJ Haws and the hulking hands of Yoeli Childs in our BYU preview. We also play Santa Clara this week, but they’re terrible so…bleh.
And finally, it’s the return of an old friend as we fish around for a very positive cinematic Top 3.
All this and more on this week’s episode of Free Ira Brown, THE Gonzaga Hoops Podcast. Do join in the positivism, won’t you?
