Happy Thursday afternoon WSU fans!
I just got off the phone with a certain someone and they were telling me about an awesome golf tournament coming up here in a few weeks being hosted by the Cougar Athletic Fund.
The 2012 Cougar Legends Golf Tournament is scheduled for June 8th and 9th at the Coeur D'Alene Resort. Looking at some of the details, clearly this event is tailored to those who are well-heeled, but if you have the opportunity to partake in this without destroying your livelihood, I would look into it some more. All proceeds for the event will help the CAF continue to fund student-athlete scholarships. With the current cost of higher education, if WSU doesn't raise another penny after today, they will be in the red roughly $4.5M next year on scholarships alone! Every dollar helps and this sounds like a great way to help with that.
Now with all that being said, it looks to be all-inclusive, and a helluva time. Judging from the entire list of Cougar Legends they ran down for me, it's safe to say, this will be the greatest collection of Who's Who in the History of WSU Athletics!
Click the old jumparoo for the rundown of all legends currently announced, and check back on their site each afternoon for three more members of the field that get announced!
The Athletic Department is releasing the name of three legends each day, for the next ten days, until the entire field is announced. I would love to tell you every name that was told to me, but I was sworn to secrecy, and prefer the current functionality of my kneecaps, as opposed to the mangled mess they may become if I were break my vow of omerta.
Legends confirmed, include:
So there you have it folks, not too bad a start, huh?
I can tell you this, roughly 20 more legends will be in attendance, and some of the names are just awesome. Names you wouldn't think of at first, but who wil be / are a fantastic assest to the WSU Family!
