college hoops update

1) Gonzaga is 2-0 after easy wins over Montana State and Idaho.
Next is the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Florida. Oklahoma State is first, followed by Maryland/Michigan State. MSU is ranked. Potentially a Georgetown matchup for the title. As a Big East follower, I would LOVE for Gonzaga to face Georgetown. They will play UConn in Seattle at Key Arena on December 20th.

2) Good win for the Illini yesterday at Vanderbilt over the Commodores, 69-63. McCamey had 23 and Davis had 11 points and 12 boards before fouling out. Next weekend, the Illini are in South Padre Island, Texas for a tournament.

3) To my friend at Chase who's a big Wolverine fan, I love your team even more for beating UCLA in NY last night. Even if the football team stinks, at least the basketball team beat UCLA.

interesting thought

In light of the historic nature of the presidential campaign, I wish to post these words from a guy named William Hennessy. I don't know if he's a neo-con, leprechaun or paleo-con, but it is worth noting.

Having identified some quintessential conservative groups, I believe I must devote some space to several organizations which do not represent conservatism in any way shape or form, but do provide ammunition for our enemies to use against us. Among these groups are the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), the Aryan Nation, the Skinheads , and the American Nazi Party.

These groups do not support limited government, they support government activism of the worst kind. They do not promote individual freedom, but group hate. They do not advance freedom, but seek to restrict virtually every aspect of life through terror. They oppose seemingly everything but drunk and stupid. These groups, for the most part, seek to eliminate Blacks, Asians, Mediterraneans, Hispanics, Jews, Catholics, liberals, intellectuals, the wealthy, the poor, libertarians, civil libertarians, agnostics, etc.

Seattle sports in the toilet

With losses by the Hawks, Huskies and Cougars, the three team football total is 3-28. Cougs were shut out 31-0 by ASU and the snake Erickson, Huskies lost 27-7 to the Bruins and the Hawks lost 26-20 to the Arizona Cardinals. That is a total of 84-27 if you're counting.

BTW, Team Affirmative Action, aka Washington Huskies' basketball team, lost at Portland Saturday night, 80-74, two losses to non-BCS teams, lost first round of CBI to Valparaiso. Pretty sad.

Thank G-d for Gonzaga hoops. Maybe they will get on a roll. WSU will be okay, but unless they have an Adam Morrison, I don't expect more than an 8-10 seed and a first round loss to a bigger name school.

Well I haven't blogged here because of some changes in my life. Moreover, when I do feel like blogging or getting things off of my chest, it's usually on facebook (www.facebook.com .

Anyway, we should hope for a good new year both Jewishly, secularly and security-wise regardless of who runs Washington, City Hall, Springfield or Olympia.

Great day for Washington Husky baseball fans, Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants won the 2008 NL Cy Young Award today over Brandon Webb of the Arizona Diamondbacks, the 2006 winner.
