Welcome to BLAZERSOG!
Welcome and thanks for reading. You may be asking, what is the Blazersog thing all about? Well, we are a collection of teachers, film makers, medical students, valets, lawyers, counselors, and friends who debate, discuss, scream, and cry about the Blazers on a daily basis. We are a group of people who have season tickets in section 326, and have had them during the “Jail Blazers” years. We found ourselves emailing and discussing various Blazer related ideas such as: “who is the SF of the future for the Blazers?” and “who would be a better fit Chris Paul or Deron Williams?” We decided to take these questions and post them for everyone to read and discuss also.
We are like you; we read the oregonlive blog, blazers edge, and the other Blazer and NBA related pages. We are not here to compete, but to compliment. For we all know that a Blazer divided against itself cannot stand. We believe the Memorial Coliseum needs to be a Portland historical landmark, and that a real “Heritage Night” would take place with a game in the glass palace (at least a preseason game). We use the word “WE” to describe the Blazers and ourselves as one…but we quizzically check the knees of others who use it to see the scrape marks from them jumping on the bandwagon. We believe it is the name on the front of the uniform that matters, but ask that the name on the back makes us proud. We believe it is not a coincidence that every living being on this earth from the birds in the sky to the fish below and the people in between bleed crimson when they are cut. We believe that inside of every Lakers fan is a Blazer dying to get out…and we are here to help. We believe that Oden in ’08 IS worth the wait. We wear Blazer shirts under our sport coats and ties on game day, and come into every season expecting a championship and every game knowing we will win.
We have been through thick and thin with the Blazers. We have experienced playoff victories, and defeats. We were there when the Rose Garden’s volume was louder than a jet engine only to fall to a deafening low when Robert Horry hit a game winning shot. We were announced attendance numbers 9,134, 9.135, and 9,136 against the Knicks two years ago. We have never, nor will we ever root for another NBA team. We are Blazers, Trail Blazers, Portland Trail Blazers, some from birth, and some from conversion. We are Rip City.
We are spread across the country, some living in Chicago, Medford, Vancouver, the SE Industrial District, the Pearl, and Wilsonville. We all come together to attend the Church of Clyde on Sundays at 3:00, and wish Comcast would allow other TV providers to wallow in the glory of Comcast Sports Net. While we all have different lives and ideas, you can expect a well educated analysis of all things Blazer. Think of it as a view from the 300 level…where we choose to reside during games.
We welcome you and yours to our Blazersog. We look forward to spirited conversation and ides on how WE as a Blazer community can do our part to create a dynasty.
