Almost Live: Warriors at Blazers


So, I haven't been drawing cartoons for the blog lately. And I look back on those fancy-free days and I think, "What the fuck? How did I have time to do those?" I guess when you put your mind to something, nothing can get in your way. Until something does. And then that something is all you can see. I hope to make two very elaborate cartoons for the season's last two home games. For now, you get this ...   More

Blazers Trade for Gerald Wallace


Holy shit, it looks like it's really happening. According to sources—including the always reliable Adrian Wojnarowksi at Yahoo Sports—the Blazers rumored trade for Charlotte Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace is now official, just minutes after the trade deadline. We'll have more details as they emerge, or when Twitter stops crashing. The deal is Wallace for Joel Przybilla and two future first round ...   More

Almost Live: Blake Griffin (a.k.a. the Los Angeles Clippers) at Portland

So, Blake Griffin and Joel Przybilla are going to get in a fight tonight, right? I mean, they'll at least get in a really wicked stare-down. And I can't wait. Even if it incites Blake and gets him playing ridiculous basketball, I want it to happen. Because I crave violence. Because I was raised on it. Because I'm an American, damnit. --- I've talked to a few people today who think this game will be ...   More

Drink 2011: Spirit of 77

Bar Guide
Let me get this out of the way early: Spirit of 77, the new Trail Blazers-themed watering hole, is not the best sports bar in town. But still, despite the fact you have to fight for a table—or show up before happy hour begins—and pay $6 for a 20-ounce imperial pint of Double Mountain Vaporizer pale ale, it’s easily the wildest place in the city to watch Nicolas Batum posterize poor members of the Utah Jazz.   More

Almost Live: Pistons at Blazers

Yup, it's just about Blazer blogging time. But first, enjoy your game day cartoon (which contains some pretty blatant thievery of this Lethal Weapon screengrab), courtesy of yours truly. See you at tip-off. Okay, here we are. Been awhile since we've seen the Detroit Pistons, and they're having a rough start to the season. That shouldn't surprise anyone, of course, but it's sad to see the mighty ...   More

Almost Live: Clippers at Blazers

What's wrong with the Blazers? It's the question that everyone has been pondering the past few weeks, but nobody has been able to come up with any discernable answers. But the team's current draught—six losses in a row, including a brutal four game trip back East that saw the Blazers lose fourth quarter leads to the Washington Wizards, Philadelphia 76ers, and New Jersey Nets, three bottom dwellers ...   More

Almost Live: Timberwolves at Blazers

Phew. Two minutes to tip-off, crappy music blasting, blimp overhead and I've just completed tonight's one-panel comic. It's a little sloppy, and there's no joke involved, but it'll have to do. Tonight's contest finds the perennially undermanned Trail Blazers matched up against the familiar-looking and perennially underachieving Timberwolves, a team with more than a couple familiar faces on the ...   More

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: 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
