Born and raised in the NW ... From Coos Bay to Portland and ultimately to Anchorage, AK. My family lived in Raleigh Hills when I was young and I attended Bridlemile Elementary for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades right when Drexler and company were making all their runs. I fell in the love with the Blazers and never looked back.

Now living and working in Colorado Springs with my wife and two dogs. We don't like it here and are looking for a way to move back to Portland. I'm an editor and she's a choir director/vocal performance teacher. If anybody knows of anything, let us know!!!

Could the Spanish Armada become the French Connection?

Lots of posts about offseason moves lately, so I can take this down if need be. But I haven't seen this idea mentioned yet and thought it deserved its own thread. Before anybody jumps on me too...

Amare wants to go to a contender.

So Amare wants to go to a contender. LMA has been playing buckets lately, but most fans have been frustrated with his passivity this season. Amare's at the complete opposite end of the spectrum. A...

Scoreboard watching ...

So with roughly 30 (+/-) games left in the season, it may be a little early to start watching the scoreboard. But I can't remember a time when there were this many good teams in the West fighting...

You couldn't make this stuff up ...

Check out "Plan A" of Dave's plans to win the game tonight ... Andre Miller scoring 52 points on 31 shots sounds an awful like two wales and a warp around the sun to me. Uncanny. Kudos, David. We're not worthy.

"Attention ladies" ...

Funny announcing coincidence tonight during the game ... The camera flashes to Rudy as he subs in at the 4:07 mark of the third quarter RIGHT as the announcers begin their pitch for an upcoming "Ladies Night Out" promo for a Mavs game. So the camera flashes to Rudy at the EXACT moment that the announcer says, "Attention ladies" etc. I had a chuckle. Just thought I'd share ...

What do the fans want for Bosh?

Hi. Full disclosure: I'm a Blazer fan. Not trying to troll or anything--just curious what you all think about the Chris Bosh situation? As an outsider, I get the feeling that Bosh wants to go...

The NBA ... where coddling the L@kers happens.

So I guess the L@kers are the only team who doesn't have to travel in the preseason? All games in the L@ area with the exception of the Thomas and Mack Center. How does Golden State feel about traveling to L@ three times in 2 weeks?
