As the season of thanks and commercialism descends upon us and turkeys everywhere run and hide, we here at Free Ira Brown turn our attention to the warm waters of the Caribbean. Specifically The Bahamas, of course, as Gonzaga has made its way from the lovely climes of Spokane to the totally average, nothing-to-write-home-about beaches of Nassau (seriously, what a downgrade).
It is on those pristine shores the Bulldogs will face their stiffest competition yet (no, not you, Southern Miss) with potential matchups with Oregon/Seton Hall and UNC/Michigan looming.
And it’s here (well, the link below, anyway) where you can find the latest episode of Free Ira Brown, in which our heroes look (briefly) ahead to the game against the Golden Eagles and (thoroughly) to the Thanksgiving Day game against either the Pirates (always a scary proposition in the Caribbean) or the Ducks (always a good Thanksgiving dish). Who do we match up with better? What are each team’s strengths and weaknesses? Why is Southern Miss so bad at shooting the basketball when they play a game where the goal is to shoot a basketball?
Those stories, plus we take a quick, obligatory look back to the razing of the Roadrunners, wonder what’s wrong with Corey, pay some respect to Kayla Standish, give our thanks for all that is Greg Heister and get into a little podcasting after dark.
And finally, with the Bulldogs heading off to the Bahamas, we provide the lads with a little extra motivation with the return of the Top 3.
All that and more on the latest episode of Free Ira Brown, THE Gonzaga Hoops Podcast. Do come eat at the big kids table with us, won’t you?
