The Pre-Funk: Rockets vs. Blazers 10/27

The all day coverage you need to go into tonight's contest.  We're just making sure you're prepared to drop that extra knowledge on the brosephs to get you another smidgen of respect.

Party Attendees...

Anyone else walking around today with a little extra pep in their step?  (Yes I actually said "pep.")  It was only a few months ago that "your" Portland Trail Blazers jumped from the depths of hell and into the first round of the playoffs where they were sucker punched,  grabbed, pulled, and out Scola'd by their opponent, the Houston Rockets.  Tonight, they get their first chance at redemption.  (Insert "muhahha" laugh.)

Those same Rockets come to town...well maybe not "same," but pretty damn close.  OK, not close at all.  In fact, this Houston team might reach the "depths of hell" that the Blazers were resting comfortably in for, oh, 6 YEARS.  Yao Ming is out for a full Zodiac cycle while the most quotable man on the planet (MQMOTP) has joined forces with the ultimate enemy.  (Names not needed right?)  They picked up Trevor Ariza from the ultimate enemy which seems like quite the downgrade, even from the MQMOTP.  So with no All-Star center and no chances of an in-game, fan-involved, beer-on-player-action, brawl taking off, I have to think that this is the opener that we would normally order off the late night happy hour menu.

Welcome to the 2009-10 NBA season my friends.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
