 The lead changed twice in less than 8 seconds, but in the end Gonzaga wound up on top of Western Kentucky 83-81 at the Rose Garden.

The tightly contested game came down to a furious close as Western Kentucky stole the lead, only to give it back on a driving layup with less than a second to go.

The Zags head to the Sweet Sixteen next week.

Category: Sports — admin @ 9:22 am

For the first time since 2007, both Oregon and Oregon State nailed wins against Pac-10 opponents on the same day (The Ducks topped Stanford breaking a 14-game losing streak while the Beavs knocked off Cal to hit .500 on the season).  The Blazers went Tyson-Mcneely on the Clippers (116-87 on Sunday).

And Howard “yes I’ve had sex with underage girls before” Avery Howard “I admitted to John Canzano that I had sex with underage girls, something the Oregonian news department also documented” Avery is back behind bars on fresh charges.  Read more on that one here.

He’s BACK!

Category: Sports — admin @ 9:52 am

Seattle sports fans are a bit delirious this morning.  After months of nothing but mouth-souring news for our friends up I-5 (UW/WSu/Seahawks football, the Sonics leaving while the BLAZERS are in line for a playoff spot), Washingtonians finally have something to root for.


He’s back.  Ken Griffey Junior will be playing in Seattle this summer.

Anyone know where we can get some Mariners tickets this season?  

After launching a hall of fame career with the squad in Seattle twenty years ago, Griffey wants to cap off his career dressed in the gray and green.

He shrugged off an attractive offer from the Braves and waved good bye to the Cincinnati Reds (his current team) to accept a one year deal along the I-5 corridor.

The 2-million dollar (plus bonuses) bargain brings back, arguably, the greatest player in Seattle sports history and pumps a barrel of caffeine into a city that has been deprived of some Good Sports News for far too long.


Now, about those tickets . . .
