Blazers Sounding Good

   Without naming names, and just remaining general, I think we can all remember the players and management of the past. Unfortunately the past few seasons have often felt like walking through a tornado. We all remember the turmoil, trouble and seemingly lost direction of the franchise.

  I guess all that is what makes "now" so nice. I can remember in the past seeing links to Blazer articles, or interviews and actually being scared to click on them. Why? Because there was such a good chance the news was going to be bad, or the commentary from the player offensive or stupid. Or that I'd be watching a "press conference" introducing the newest Blazer Trent Hassel.

  My point in bringing up this darkness at a bright spot? Because it is so great that The Blazers are playing good, acting good and sounding good. I don't fear a sound bite with any of our players anymore. I don't scratch my head at the actions of management, and I don't get the nagging headache that I often got reading the local sports section.

  The good times have returned and it's GOOD.

  An interview with KP? Great turn it up! Brandon? Oden? Blake? Aldridge? Jack? go through the roster, do I have the subconcious fear any of these guys are going to say something counter productive or damaging, or down right embarrasing? No! Refreshing to have the interview end with myself feeling better about the team and the player as opposed to wondering about the wisdom of trying to sweat the alcohol binge of the night before off in practice.

   Nothing sounds better than Rip City right now.
