Depleted But Not Done, Portland Trail Blazers Need Lillard Time, All The Time

The first two games of the Portland Trail Blazers first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies put their issues under a magnifying glass that told harsh truths. Their depleted roster has result in heavy burdens on the shoulders of LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard, not nearly enough firepower on the wings to combat Memphis’s stodgy defense on both […]

Calm Down – This Portland Trail Blazers Season Was Defined By Injury

The Portland Trail Blazers were lit up in Memphis. Pounded on Sunday, then again on Wednesday. They return home down two games in the series lost by a combined 29 points.

Which Seattle Seahawks Belong On The Team’s Mount Rushmore?

With Russell Wilson on the cusp of becoming the highest paid player on the Seattle Seahawks, if not in the entire National Football League, many fans have begun to debate where Wilson ranks among the greatest Seahawks of all time. He is already the most accomplished quarterback in Seahawks history, and the winningest 3rd year […]

Room For Improvement – The Seattle Mariners After 15 Games

Fifteen games down, 147 to go. I wrote something similar last season when the Seattle Mariners got off to a slow start in April. Had the Mariners gone 6-9 in any stretch during, say, mid June, no one would even notice. But the freshness of the season and the high expectations surrounding this ball club […]

Damian Lillard Will Not Quit On The Portland Trail Blazers

The last playoff game in Memphis didn’t go well. Neither did the first. That’s the NBA. Teams click, then they don’t, and everyone finds a player to blame. In Portland that player is Damian Lillard. The poor guy becomes a household name, gets a ton of press, and he’s now the biggest problem? Lillard faced […]

Portland Trail Blazers Home Ticket Prices Dwarf Prices At FedEx Forum

With a season-ending injury to Wesley Matthews, the Portland Trail Blazers knew any playoff series would have to be won by their two stars, LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard. Aldridge scored enough points, 32, but it took a lot of shots to get there, shooting 13-for-34 from the field. Lillard, quite frankly, put up a […]

Ashford Action

Perez Ashford – Personal Protector Extraordinaire

Every half begins with a kickoff. In a typical Arena Football League game, you’re likely to see 15-plus kickoffs, a few of which will go through the narrow uprights for a touchback, some of which will be onside kicks, and you’ll have a couple of electrifying returns. What doesn’t happen often, except to the Portland […]
