  1. https://mwwire.com/2020/04/30/unlv-will-officially-be-playing-games-at-sam-boyd/
  2. Never saw him pitch in person. His antics were all the rage for a couple of years, and yes injuries cut his career short. I guess talking to the ball wasn't very common.
  3. First game ever attended was with my dad in the summer of 1968 at old Tiger Stadium, at the corner of Trumbull and Michigan Ave., at the age of 8. That season is etched in my memory forever as the Tigers went on to defeat Bob Gibson and the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series, coming back from a 1-3 deficit winning game 7 by a score of 4-1 in St. Louis. Denny McClain and his 31 wins, Mickey Lolich, Al Kaline, Bill Freehan, Willie Horton, Mickey Stanley, Jim Northrup, all my boyhood heroes. Something magical about that old ballpark. Obstructed views from steel girders, wooden seats you could bang up and down, huge manual scoreboard, and other oddities. The voice of Ernie Harwell emitting from AM radios on porches throughout the neighborhood on a hot and muggy Southern Michigan summer night. Nothing has ever come close to matching those childhood memories. Also took in a couple of Lions games in December in that old stadium. Definitely not as much fun as a Tigers game. Finally, there are a lot of us old codgers hanging out here on the MWC Board😂
  4. I absolutely agree that Vegas is the best place to hold the tournament. The tournament was great this year, as it usually is. That being said, from a national perspective, it would be nice to not be irrelevant during championship week. It’s hard enough for the MWC as it is.
  5. Ummmm.....Maybe consider another location/city when there is a conflict. Being proactive and visionary has never been a Craig Thompson strength. And don’t give me the attendance would suffer BS. Both Thursday and Friday I sat anywhere that I wanted to in that arena.
  6. Driving home from Las Vegas and I am listening to Dana O’Neill from the Athletic talking about seeding for the tournament. She said that San Diego State is not necessarily out of the running for a number one seed, but having to sit idle all week long While all of these other teams are playing in their conference tournaments, could render San Diego State as an afterthought in many peoples minds. Craig Thompson and the powers to b, need to pay more attention to Conflicts in Las Vegas when scheduling future conference tournaments
  7. Congrats Aggies! First team officially in The Dance.
  8. I don’t have a dog in this fight, even though I do live in East Idaho. I am sporting a Boise State hat I picked up here in the arena tonight, and I’m sporting a sweet Black with blue and orange lettered Florida baseball jersey, so I guess unofficially the fan count could be as high as 17.
  9. First time sitting in what you might consider a quasi SUDS home game, and am finding out I have been mistaken all these many years as I always thought BYU had the whiniest fan base west of the Mississippi when it came to the officials.
  10. I am literally sitting 10 rows behind and to the left of the Boise section. During the timeout I could personally vouch that Boise has 13 fans in attendance along with the pep band and cheer squad. However there is a father and son in blue shirts one section over and one guy straight below me wearing an orange and blue hat, so the official fan count may be as high as 16.
  11. I’m sitting directly across from the Boise bench. This sure feels and sounds like a SUDS home game.

  13. Well that wash fun. Congrats Pokes!
  14. Well that was a fun game. Both fan bases totally into it. Glad I drove down from Idaho to enjoy some golf and MWC hoops, not to mention some 78 degree weather. I’ve always been a fan of this conference and always will be as my school continues to wander in the forsaken wilderness of Football Independence. Congrats Aggies. Now Go Pokes in tonight’s finale.
