Early next week you might find yourself on the phone or exchanging emails with someone in a different part of the country.
Let's say it is someone who is a decent person but who, you suspect, isn't all that impressed with Spokane.
He'll say: "So, did I just see that Gonzaga is ranked No. 1 in the country?"
And you say: "Oh yeah, I guess that's right."
He'll say: "No. 1. That's something."
And you say: "Yeah, they are having an OK season."
Heh heh heh.
