More with the Zips in Portland

By Tom Gaffney Published: March 17, 2009

I am back after a radio interview with a Seattle station. It's interesting how the state of Washington loves the Zags, perhaps more than the University of Washington, which also plays here in Portland. Maybe it is the underdog thing.
Anyway, kudos for the members of the athletic department for putting this trip together on short notice. No snags, a bag of food for everyone, timetables met. Dr. Proenza, you have good people in that department.
The players did look tired after a week of playing late, preparing for the next game, celebrating, doing media interviews, prepping for the Zags. The players and many in the traveling party slept for the first half of the trip.
Mum is the official word on Humpty's ankle, but he appeared to be walking well.
The Zips will practice at 4 p.m. Pacific (7 in Ohio) Tuesday at Concordia College. Another walk through is set for Wednesday there, then a press conference and 40-minute practice open to the public at 515 Pacific at the Rose Garden.
Talking informally to a few people here, most expect a Zags win.
