Portland Trail Blazers Week Preview – 1/26

Every NBA week is eventful in its own way, but for the Portland Trail Blazers, it seemed doubly so.

Nicolas Batum

The Clock Is Ticking On Nicolas Batum

It was Blazers 103, Wizards 96 on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at the Moda Center. It was another comeback win for Portland, this one fueled emotionally and physically by LaMarcus Aldridge, playing hurt, and playing on into the foreseeable, if tenuous, future. The message from Aldridge, who wanted to play, and […]

Portland Winterhawks Riding High On The Road And At Home

Perhaps all it took was a 20 hour bus ride to Prince George to refresh the batteries. Granted, it took a 6-2 loss in Kamloops on the way to Prince George, but from there, it has been all Portland Winterhawks. The two Prince George games that saw the Hawks win by a 4-3 Shootout and […]

Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch’s Talent Is Equaled Only By His Immaturity

Marshawn Lynch might be the most violent running back I’ve ever seen play football, and that is absolutely a complement.

Twinkle, Tinkle, Little Star – Oregon State Beavers Survive UCLA, 66-55

Wayne Tinkle paced back-and-forth in front of the Oregon State bench. His collared shirt was soaked through under both arms, as he discarded his jacket minutes earlier during a heated dispute with an official. This was no time for manners.

Pete Carroll

The Pete Carroll Way

It was Special Teams coach Brian Schneider and his staff who picked out Green Bay Packers’ reserve linebacker Brad Jones reckless aggression trying to block field goals, and so those coaches deserve the credit for crafting the base layer of the Seattle Seahawks’ NFC Championship comeback out of thin air. But I’ll bet there wasn’t […]
