Default Re: my first visit here--- and i am just curious about...

How long have I been a Blazer's Fan? Since about 1991 - I grew up without TV, so it wasn't until I got out of my little redneck/logger hometown that I really got into basketball - I've liked other teams/players, but the Blazers have always been my team.
My opinion of management? OUTSTANDING
Best memory of the Blazers? Attending my first Blazers game at the Rose Garden last winter (vs the Houston Rockets) - they lost, but the whole experience, flying over to Portland, staying at a nice hotel, being around other Blazer fans, with GREAT seats. Good time!!!
Favorite Blazer player--past and current? Jerome Kersey & LaMarcus Aldridge

I just realized why this question could be considered important to a Sonic fan (if you consider owners as part of management).

owners dictate the general direction of the organization-- paul allen is a class act and i am glad he owns the seahawks

he puts money into his investment and that makes fans HAPPY

and now, the blazers are again a first class organization!

and his jimmy hendrix colection at the EMP is great!

Cool - thanks - I'll have to take my kids there next time I'm back on that side of the state - last time I took them to the Woodland Park Zoo and they were bored crapless - but they're both really into music.

* how long have you been a blazer fan?
Ever since I was a pain in the butt kid in eugene too broke to get blazer tickets

* do you live in the portland area or elsewhere?
No... I'm up here with all the other crazy Alaskans... but vacationing in Oregon in October

* your opinion of the management?
KP is the man, Nate is great in many ways and an excelent fit and last but not least who could ask for a better owner than PA

* best memory of the blazers?
Every time they traded away one of those $#%$#%^^%$^^@%%$& jailblazers

* favorite blazer player-- past and current?
Past I gotta say Bill Walton... Big ole hippie looking dude even tho I was too young to see him play

Current I would say BRoy for his maturity at a young age and am very excited to see crazy Rudy flying all around being a one man highlight reel

Been a fan since 1983 (grade school), My dad took me to a gme vs. the Knicks. It was Clyde's rookie year, but our three big stars were Jim Paxon, Calvin Natt, and Darnell Valentine. But, my favorite player was Lafayette "Fat" Lever, I really liked his style.

My favorite moment has to be the celebration at Phoenix in the WCF in '90 after Buck Williams stole the ball from Tom Chambers in the last seconds to seal a win and send us to the finals.
