ESPN gets a couple free bags of Zags Blend coffee, thanks to Cravens

Our second leftover from the Merch Madness story that ran today in The Spokesman-Review.

Cravens Coffee, a big fan of GU basketball, has seen plenty of sales for its Zags Blend coffee.

Since Neil Everett is an announcer at ESPN, company owners Simon Thompson and Becky Templin sent two bags of Zags Blend to ESPN's Connecticut office.

“Everett is a graduate of Lewis and Clark H.S.,” Thompson said. It was worth a shot, and maybe on a slow day someone would be seen pouring out a cup of the Spokane-roasted coffee.

So far, however, that's all there is to the story.  Not even a thank you note, at last check.
