Go Zags!

It's no secret that I live in Spokane, and that I moved here for college (and got stuck afterwards, for better or worse!). But as a proud Gonzaga alumnae, I am so ridiculously excited for the game tonight!

Josh Heytvelt is getting ready to PWN some Tarheels.

This is the first time we've been in the Sweet Sixteen since 2006, and I intend to soak it up with the locals in festive style. I actually considered going to the game (in Memphis, Tennessee) for a little while earlier this week - it would have cost $1,000 and required flying to Seattle last night, then flying from Seattle to Nashville, TN, at 6am this morning, and then driving the 213 miles from Nashville to Memphis. I'm a committed fan, but that was too much even for me. I'm hoping watching it in a sports bar with hundreds of die-hard Zags fans will be just as good - and who knows, maybe ESPN will be filming or something (it's happened before!).

Get ready for a beat down, Hansbrough!

If you're looking for something to do tonight, it's going to be broadcast on CBS at 9:57pm Eastern/6:57pm Pacific, and it should be awesome. I'm going to go invest in a new Gonzaga sweatshirt just for the occasion.

P.S. In case you missed how Gonzaga got to the Sweet 16, watch this ridiculously awesome video of the last 30 seconds of the second round game against Western Kentucky.
