When I was a kid, I wrote a running diary about every game of the Portland Trail Blazers’ 1991-1992 campaign. Reading every recap was like reading how every game was either the best day of my life or the end of civilization. Rarely was I levelheaded unless I was running down the stat line of […]

And So Begins Another Portland Trail Blazers Journey …

It’s often said that every journey begins exactly the same. Whether it’s a triumphant Lord of the Rings-esque journey ending in untold riches and life affirming self-discovery, or it’s a Billy Bob’s fateful trip to the local mini-mart that ends in a botched robbery, police standoff and a once promising life now spent behind bars, […]

Pac-12 Hangover – Week 9

It took us 9 weeks but it’s finally becoming clear who the contenders are, and who has been pretending since the preseason prognostications 3 months ago.  It’s pretty much Oregon, the Arizona schools, Utah and Stanford due to their game versus Oregon this weekend.  Do I think the Cardinal are really deserving of winning the […]
