Great Game Last Night. Too Bad The Blazers Will Break My Heart

Hey, don't start writing letters just yet. I was — and am — a Blazer fan. I remember how Rip City swept through Portland in the early ‘90's. I still know all the words to “Bust a Bucket" [youtube h5pGfakssHc] In fact whenever the Blazers played on TV we muted the telecast so we could hear the “Schonz” on the radio. Clyde, Duck, Cliff, Buck, Terry; those ...   More

Almost Live: Jazz Vs. Blazers

It takes some time to acclimate a new player to a team. That's what every Blazer fan—and even coach Nate McMillan—is admitting after Friday night's blowout home loss to Boston. How bad was the game?

Almost Live: Phoenix at Portland (Game Four!)

Well, I'm not sure it was a Willis Reed moment, but when this half-full Rose Garden caught a glimpse of Brandon Roy in warm-up gear, it might as well have been. For those who, like me, spent last night getting drunk and arrived to the arena not long before tip-off, this was quite a surprise. I'm sure that in-the-know folks were less taken aback. Still, it's a sight for sore eyes. Now let's see if Roy ...   More
