An Open Message to All UP Alums Rooting for the Zags

Post by Stonehouse on Fri Feb 06, 2009 9:06 am

YOU PEOPLE SUCK. AND SO DOES ANGELO.

Look, I can understand growing up in Spokane and liking the Zags. But to show up to your alma mater wearing Zag gear? Just sickening. And it's even worse when you are in the middle of the UP season ticket holder section and jumping up after every Zag basket like it was a buzzer beater and waiving your arms up and taunting the fans around you... yes, I'm talking about you Jason Lesh. Smile

OK. Just had to get that off my chest.

Buyaah,

My Polictically correct young friend has Spoken. I hate to admit it but I was having fantasy's of egging Zag car's,and starting fistfight's in the Parking Lot of the Chiles Center. But then I thought that wouldn't be very classy, and the Pilot fan's alway's have that if nothing else. Even in the losing season's.


MesaPilot1

P.S. -Besides I would look like a real winner kickin some middle-age man's arse. Or worse yet here's my scenerio, getting punched out by some 20 yr old Gonzaga kid and watching him walk away from me while I get arrested. Me no likkee jail,not good example for my kid. Ahh the wisdom of middle age.

Amen, Stonehouse.

As I am also someone who grew up in Spokane (and went to a high school with a very similar name to GU), I find that behavior to be cause for concern for that person's mental health... [/sarcasm] Wink

No kidding. Root for them every day except 2 maybe 3 days a year. Show up in purple or don't show up!
Slightly related- I see kids wearing Zags/UO/UW stuff on the CSU campus sometimes. Take that crap off or transfer, posers!

HA HA HA... everyone's favorite Zag moderator Angelo just linked this thread to the GU Boards.

Best part... he completely biffed the story. Jason isn't a Spokie... I think he's from Lake Oswego. Nice try, Angelo.

Poor Angelo, foiled by the boorish behavior of a GU Bandwagon jumper... And GUnit? That's about as lame a title as 50 Cent's career...

Mesa, Stoney you're my heros. Angelo, Jason Lesh not so much. Frankly, it's disgusting - you root for your alma mater. I'm a Pilot through and through but make no mistake, if UP were to schedule Willamette for some reason make no mistake - I'd be there decked out in cardinal and gold.

Pilot Nation road trip to the Kennel next year? I vote yes.

Isn't that something they took from Randy "big johnson" opps, I mean BIG UNIT JOHNSON before he moved down here. Or that Puffy/P-Ditty rippoff. Whatever it is I guess it gives a bunch of fat old white guys emotionally trapped in BFE some "street cred".


Sound's pretty ghetto to me. Typical small-town hillbilly attitudes do still exist in Spokane,WA.

@Yeah, if the Pilot's were ever to play AZ Dept of Corrections I may have to do that too. J/k, i think Suspect

Well, you just have to understand Angelo... he gets off on negativity about other WCC schools and he loves to portray himself as an insider. If you look at his posts, you wouldn't think that he's even much of a fan at all... he just throws up links about either Gonzaga or about some negative story/stat about another WCC school. He's a big back-room kind of guy - I'm surprised he posted something so overt. I've had a few run ins with him from time to time, and he loves to send little biting messages... all very discreet, mind you, but in his mind it's intimidating. Whatever... it wouldn't be as fun without him around, I guess.

Anyway, back to the topic - I honestly have no problem with UP kids liking the Zags. I know a lot of people come to UP just to get the heck out of Spokane. But showing up wearing a bunch of Zag gear is just lame... wear something neutral and clap for both teams if you have to, but acting like your GU's #1 fan? I can't respect that at all.

G Unit is a rap group from NYC... founded by 50 Cent.

I actually think it's hilarious that they give out a "G Unit" every game to the POG. I wonder how many of them even know what G Unit is.

This was their big single:

Stonehouse, now that Angelo posts on our board, maybe we should form our own elite moderator board separate from Pilot Nation where we lambast other Pilot/WCC fans and PN posters, only to be discovered by Dons Central and have our degrading, immature thoughts posted on that board for all to see. Then we can threaten to sue Dons Central and make them put a written apology up on his board for a few weeks.

But then again, that sounds like a lot of work. I don't have time for that kind of trite, boorish behavior... I would be surprised if anyone did...

How the F did I get dragged into this? All I was doing was sitting home watching my Dons lose again.

But, what was that? You guys have a secret board?

HA! No, we prefer to keep things civil and out in the open, sorry to drag you into the fracas...

Then again maybe we should make a secret board.... and I'm sure at least someone will have "gopilots" as their password...

Oh man... believe me, we know the feeling. That's why we're so dang giddy that we are actually winning.

But yes - I say we set up a "secret" board that can only be found by the super hi-tech search engine Google.

PilotNut- Ditto that. I have been fielding emails, texts and status updates from various family, friends and former high school classmates wondering how I could *possibly* be rooting for Portland against the Zags. Like being from Spokane and going to that similar sounding high school should automatically make me fall in line....psh. I have a little thing called ALLEGIANCE to my own alma mater, thank you very much. Roots, schmoots.

This is purely hypothetical, but what if, for example, Portland is your alma mater, but you have a son who plays for Gonzaga. Who do you root for? Would you have problem if that was the case? Again, this is purely hypothetical. . .

Purely hypothetical like 2-5 years ago when Rick Raivio's son, Derek played for the Zags?

We could just go back to OLive... Laughing

And I nominate Mesa for PilotNation HOF for his anti-GU rejoinders. Each one is the finely honed culmination of the efforts of a master craftsman.
