    so im a blazers fan in TX. and last night i got home thinking i was going to see the Blazers - Rockets game over the Lakers - Jazz because the Rockets are from Houston. however TNT showed LA vs Utah, im guessing because the Portland game was airing in Portland. Upsetting yes, BUT i watched the entire game through updates from ESPN's score thingy at the bottom. lol. it was definitely a very long night, but it was awesome to finally see Portland inch away after seeing a 2 point game for either side until the end of the 4th. GO BLAZERS!!!

    anyway, so Roy proved his scoring potential, and why he is an All-Star amongst the strong 2 guards in the west. Aldridge threw one down like he does it all the time. Oden had one of the most athletic putbacks ive seen. And the Blazers proved they can run with the Rockets. (I got all this from highlights. lol. so worth it)

    I definitely see Portland going into Houston and winning at least one game.

    Welcome TX Blazer fan. LTrain wouldn't have anything to do with you being a TX Blazer fan would it? Anyway, if we don't get some offense from someone other than our big two, I don't think we will beat Houston in Houston. Here's hopin! BLAZERMANIA BABY!

    I know how it was last night. I too am a big Blazers fan in Texas. Very upset that I can not view the game. Had to check online from time-to-time for updates. Don't know what ESPN was thinking airing reruns of poker and baseball tonight over a playoff game. Hopefully with the Blazers in Houston, we would be able to see the Blazers.

    LaMarcus Aldridge believe it or not isn't a big part of me liking the Blazers. He is somewhat, but not that huge. i actually had a friend move out to Oregon not too long ago, and he has been getting me into Oregon, Oregon State, and Portland. Because of him i somewhat trailed the Blazers while spending my time here in TX without a favorite basketball team. (i dont fancy Texas too much, funny cuz my dad and brother LOVE the Spurs, and i spend all my time rooting against the Spurs.) I minorly followed back in the days of Clyde Drexler, then Rasheed Wallace, and Bonzi Wells but i never officially was a fan of any team. It's hard to make up your mind to be a fan of a team you NEVER see.

    Anyway, soo after getting a part time job at Starbucks just to see how that would go. I met this girl who went to Portland State and played volleyball. she was telling me all about Oregon and how beautiful it is, and how the educational system isn't retarded like it is here. She made me fall in love with Oregon. So i hope to move there whenever i have enough money and stability to. Im already hopin to be able to take my kid (when i have one) to see a couple games at the Garden. lol. I might hurry up and have one just so i can. lol kidding.

    So yeah, after spending most of my life in a neutral state, rooting for underdogs. i finally pledged my allegiance to the Portland Trail Blazers this year. (I was at a bar shouting at the top of my lungs when they played the Cavs.) and what better timing then when they are underdogs in the playoffs. so i guess it all worked out.

    I just got internet back, which is why i just joined the blazer fan base online just the other day. but im excited, i think my girlfriend is jealous of the Blazers, but its ok, she knows i love her..... just maybe not as much as i love the Blazers. HAHAHAHA

    Tell your girlfriend that if she will learn to do a 360 windmill dunk, you will like her better.

    Im joining the Blazer fans of Tejas. Moved from Corvallis bout 7 years ago. Man i im like the only cat rockin red and black when we play the Mavs. Its sad, we need more representatives down here. Hopefully we can make a statement in these playoffs and open people's eyes to BlazerNation.

    Agreed we dont get games down here, unless rip city is playing the local team or we are national (4 or 5 games this season i think...) Anyhoo, time to Git R Done down in H-Town. Lets Get It Portland!!!!

    I'm obviously from TX too...representing the Blazers at Baylor University in Waco! Couldn't be a spurs fan cuz im not old enough =), mavs fans are notorious for being idiots who talk a lot of trash but never win, and I just never could find a reason for liking the Rockets. LaMarcus is what first got me watchin the Blazers, but now I love the whole team...besides blake and outlaw but thats another story =).
    I am a fan of THE Baylor University Bears, Portland Trailblazers, Dallas Cowboys, and Houston Astros.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
