Seated eight rows behind the Bulldogs’ bench, Thayne McCulloh is just as nervous as the rest of the 1,000 or so people decked out in Gonzaga colors in the Honda Center.
If you’re heading to Anaheim to see Gonzaga in the Sweet 16, you’ve likely already put together a mental checklist of the types of food you’re either craving or the places you’ve always wanted to eat.
Gonzaga’s sweet road trip to Anaheim for the NCAA Tournament means a whole bunch of folks from Spokane just got unexpected travel plans to the land of the Real Housewives, and – both more importantly and less goofy – Disneyland.
The good part about being an editor is that you typically see lots of the country, as you move from newspaper to newspaper. That’s also kind of the bad part, too. But not this week. And especially for those heading to Southern California to see Gonzaga in the Sweet 16.
Awesome eats at Anaheim Packing District It’s a throwback to when oranges actually ruled Orange County.
After online backlash to Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue questioning the existence of Gonzaga, the late night TV host had something to say to Zags fans.
It happens every year at tournament time: Some national television person ticks me off. Actually, it’s usually multiple people. I think in TV terms, they call that a gaggle of broadcasters. Or maybe it’s a cackle. I forget. Most of the time, it’s about Gonzaga and how they pronounce it. I mean mispronounce it. Other times, it’s about how they butcher saying Spokane. In some rare circumstances, it’s literally both, and that’s when my head explodes in a phonetic fit.

So, what’s it like to travel when you’re one of the elite college basketball programs in the nation?
I like Facebook. Even with all of its problems. It’s where I keep up with my friends and the people I care the most about. The people I grew up with in my tiny hometown. My college buddies. The wannabe rock stars in the various bands in which I tried to play guitar. (You should see how awesome I looked in acid-washed jeans, with the biggest ’80s hair this side of Texas.)
It’s the smell. Not the warm and familiar fragrance of the trees, though he loves that scent as well.
On Monday, the Associated Press named the Zags the No. 1 team in the nation, jumping over Kansas. That meant the Curley family’s favorite team was No. 2. It also meant I’d better brace for a call from my Mom.
Strap on those Mickey ears you bought during your last vacation to Disneyland and let’s begin this little mouse tale.
Last year, our newspaper was asked to participate in the Salvation Army’s Kettle Kickoff. We were all ready. But I was especially ready. Dressed as Santa, the generosity I saw that day truly moved me. I know it’s not a competition. It’s something done for all of the right reasons to help others who need a little extra this holiday season, and really, during all of our seasons. It’s one of those things that needs, and deserves, to be kept pure.
If you have seen the fresh fleet of Lime scooters across Spokane, you likely marveled at two things: just how darn fast they seem to go and how many adults seem to be riding them.
The letters, emails and phone calls probably started in June. One of my favorite things about Spokane, and especially our subscribers, is that people here pay attention to the smallest details. They also aren’t afraid of sharing their observations about those things – especially any changes they don’t especially appreciate.
Scott Morris is the CEO of Avista as it heads directly into one of the biggest and more important moments in the iconic Spokane company’s 128-year history: its pending $5.3 billion sale to Canada’s Hydro One.
In doing that research for our family’s move to this area, it didn’t take long to figure out Gonzaga mattered. It also didn’t take long to realize that Zags basketball might mean more to us than most expected.
Never mess up the crossword puzzles, a wise editor once said. Boy was he right.
In the last year, print subscriptions across the country are up 25 percent to 100 percent depending on your rate. Outrageous, but based on simple economics.
