With the help of someone in the Gonzaga basketball “secret society,” I now have the ability to watch Gonzaga Basketball games online and this couldn’t come at a better time as the WCC tournament in Vegas begins this upcoming weekend. Today, I figured it would be a good idea to “test drive” the site where I can watch these games and so after my volunteering, I went to the Spanish Cafe and watched the most recent Gonzaga vs. St. Mary’s matchup from last week. With this being the first time I’ve been able to watch the boys in action since early January, I have to say I experienced emotion similar to how a person might feel when after thinking their family dog ran away, it reappeared on their doorstep two months later. Even with these kind of emotions and the game going into overtime, you’ll be happy to know I kept my viewing behavior within a PG, “Ernest Goes to Camp” kind of level. Knowing the Zags won beforehand had nothing to do with this either.
Just to quickly give everyone an update on my volunteering, I am still serving in the same area as I have been. As to why my blog of late hasn’t touched on this part of my day in too much detail has more to do with things settling down than it does with me trying to keep things confidential. This decline in activity with respect to my area of volunteering is bitter sweet really. Sweet, because no activity in a way is good a thing, but bitter because our team has a suspicion that someone might have taken all the starfish and just put them on another beach. Dying starfish isn't good for the beach front property after all. If in fact our suspicion is true on this, I can only hope that the new beach where all the starfish went has a little boy on it too.
