      Ah yes...1970! I was only 8 at the time and I was instantly a Blazer fan after my grandfather took me to a game vs The New York Knicks (I still have the program). Geoff Petrie was my idol and basketball was all that mattered in my short life. I remember going to games after that where you could move to other seats because nobody hardly showed up. I believe there was no 24 second clock, no 3 pointers, and penalty meant 3 shots to make two at the foul line. Not quite clear on all that now so I might be wrong??? LOL

      I never got that team picture but got the next 3 seasons team pictures at Farrells I believe. I at one time had all the Texaco photos but I think I traded them for other stuff I wanted. Anyhow, it was a great time for Portland sports history and I am glad the team has been able to stay there and continue to increase the fan base. Rip City baby! I have been faithfull for all 40 years :-)

      peace out,
      daddy
