Kicking Off 2024

I'm going to try and post regularly in 2024 - I don't think I made any posts here in 2023 - sad, but I have been fairly busy.

We went to the NHL Winter Classic on New Year's Day and enjoyed an awesome outdoor hockey game between the Seattle Kraken and the Las Vegas Golden Knights. The Kraken won 3-0 with our goalie, Joey Daccord keeping the Golden Knights scoreless.

Later that evening, the University of Washington Huskies beak the Texas Longhorns in the Sugar Bowl and will play the hated Michigan Wolverines on January 8th for the College Football Championship.

Raiders Top Seahawks in OT

Pretty fitting that Josh Jacobs runs for an 86-yard touchdown to end the game in overtime versus the Seahawks at Lumen Field on Sunday. Final score 40-34

49ers win today to take the lead in the NFC West

Josh Jacobs had a record-setting day

Huskies Win 2022 Apple Cup

I don't think anyone was expecting this high of a combined score based on the weather in Pullman but wow - 84 points!
I think the Pac-12 #1 offense took care of the #1 Pac-12 defense - it was a much closer game than the final score of 51 to 33 reflects with 7 first half lead changes but the Huskies did prevail.

Looking forward to the Pac12 Championship game with the rematch between USC and Utah next weekend.

Purdue Tops Gonzaga

Purdue is a good team with an outstanding 7' 4" center and a pair of Freshman guards that had an outstanding game. One they got the lead in the first half, the Zags could never get it back.

From the Associated Press:

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PORTLAND — Zach Edey scored 15 of his 23 points in the final 15 minutes, Braden Smith and Fletcher Loyer each added 14, and the No. 24 Purdue men’s basketball team beat No. 6 Gonzaga 84-66 on Friday night in the semifinals of the eightteam Phil Knight Legacy tournament. Purdue’s 7-foot-4 center took over for stretches of the second half, but he had a good supporting cast. Purdue (5-0) shot 57% in the second half, made 6 of 11 three-point attempts and outrebounded the Zags 46-31. And Purdue had an answer for every run Gonzaga (4-2) tried to make. Purdue will play Duke in the championship game on Sunday, while the Zags will face Xavier in the third-place game. Drew Timme led Gonzaga with 22 points and nine rebounds in his highly anticipated matchup with Edey. Nolan Hickman added 15 but the rest of Gonzaga’s players were mostly absent at the offensive end. • In a late Thursday game, Malachi Smith led six players in double figures with a season-high 23 points and Gonzaga used a big first half to beat Portland State 102-78 in the opening round of the tournament.
