Rob Curley: Going to the game with Thayne

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.

Rob Curley: ‘Orange’ you ready for the Sweet 16?

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.

Rob Curley: Hey Jimmy Kimmel, Gonzaga is totally real and Spokane will prove it to you

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.

Last Gonzaga fan in Vegas arena still believes Zags a team of destiny

Katherine Morgan, the former president and CEO of the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber – and current senior vice president at Bank of America – simply couldn’t bring herself to leave Orleans Arena after the Zags’ loss in the West Coast Conference Tournament championship.

Rob Curley: Why America needs journalists – and the T-shirts to prove it

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.)

Rob Curley: Come help us close out the Kettle Kickoff charity drive – we’ve got ‘Olaf’ your Christmas cheer right here

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.
