Inside a Trident Submarine

I spent 4 years on this submarine - there were no women onboard and it was before the conversion that allows it to carry Navy Seals but this is a pretty good look at life aboard a submarine - no views of the engineering spaces which is where I spent most of my time.

Gonzaga Beats Washington 80-64

Game 1 of the Battle4Atlantis is in the books and the Bulldogs beat the Huskies in a great game to start this tournament.
Wiltjer and Sabonis led Gonzaga in scoring. This is going to be a great three days of experience for the young Huskies and I can't wait to see how they develop over the season.

University of Washington Huskies Get First Win Ever in China

They are young and they are going to be frustrating at times to watch, but they are gonna be real good real soon! The Washington Huskies played a sloppy game but the Texas Longhorns played even sloppier and the Dawgs came out on top 77-71 ofr the first regular season win in any sport by any U.S. team!

Huskies Lose to Utah 34-23

Matt Preston, an active member of the UW ROTC, led the Huskies onto the field tonight carrying the U.S. flag.

I didn't see much of this game, but listened to some of it on the radio. A few too many mistakes against a good team is never going to yield good results. This young team is getting some good experience - we'll see how that plays out in the next couple of years. GO DAWGS!
