Blazers First Game
 
I know its not for awhile, but is anyone else planning to attend the first game of the season? I hope its a home game, and I can see Oden score his first points, the Rose Garden will be LOUD when that happens. Also, feel free to discuss next years potential and all.....do you guys think that the Blazers are a championship team in 4 years? Will they make the playoffs next year?

I hope it is a home game as well, but I plan on going to the home opener regardless. That is assuming I don't have work or class at night.

I just realized that I didn't address the rest of your questions. I do think we will make the playoffs next year, but as a lower seed. I hope and expect us to be championship contenders in 4 years. Actually winning one is pretty tough. Sometimes people throw out probabilities that are a little generous (I'm sure I've done this myself some time). But the truth is, there is only 1 championship every year and even the best teams are only about 25% likely of winning on a given year.

I'm expecting about 48-53 wins next season.

I'm going to try to attend. I think we will be the 6th seed next season.

A little bump here, but how do you get tickets to the first game of the season? I'm looking around a little but don't know where to start...?

Individual seats aren't on sale yet. Just check the Blazers official homepage every day until they are on sale. It just takes a quick moment. If you sign up as a fan on that site, you can also receive emails that give you updates including ticket stuff. If I'm by the Rose Garden and I know there is a specific game I want to go to, I buy the tickets there because you can avoid certain printing fees that other places charge. But its pretty close to the same if you just order them from the site itself. If it slips by you and the game sells out, you can go to ebay or stubhub. Its easier to find tickets on stubhub but the shipping is pretty spendy. I got a lot of tickets cheaper than retail price through ebay last year, but bigger games, such as Laker games/holiday games/home opener, have higher demand and the tickets will likely run more expensive than through the box office.

Okay, thanks. I will probably catch it, but just for good measure...can you post here, or mail me when you notice them on sale? =S

I'll try to remember to post here just to remind all the Blazer fans in the Portland area.

If you want tickets for the first game the best way to get them would either be craigslist or www.stubhub.com. Thats the best way to find single game tickets imo.
