Newer member gameday open thread primer: the legend of 1237

In the course of the gameday open threads, there were days when some had time to watch/listen to the game and comment on the site, and days when many could and did.  This led to an increasing number of comments in every game as the season wore on, leading to hope, desire, and a challenge from Dave, to have a gameday thread surpass 1000 comments.  On march 16th, 2007, thanks to a perfect storm of a local broadcast (NBC), the Lakers, overtime, Aldridge stepping up, and Kobe dropping 65, we broke the Blazersedge equivalent of the sound barrier with 1237 comments.  

I'd like to throw down a new challenge, in the face of a what looks to be a more exciting team, a horde of new members, and citywide renewed passion for the Blazers: 2000.  As in comments.

We definitely have the numbers for this, and more importantly, the personalities.  Gameday comments are not just play-by-play from you friendly neighborhood Blazersedgesters, but also  discussions, commentary, education on the subleties of the game, silliness, venting, puns, agony (from both losing and the puns) celebration, etc, etc.  With all the people we have and their accompanying style, wit, and distinct voices, racking up meaningful comments (not just comments for comments sake, or redundant comments) should be no problem.

'07-'08.  New season.  New team.  New attitude.  Renewed commitment.  2000 comments.
