Dave graciously let me and the Citizens of ClipsNation off the hook regarding our song bet this weekend. I guess he felt bad winning a game against a team starting Dan Dickau, Josh Powell and Quinton Ross. Go figure.
But a bet is a bet, and I'm not a welsher (nor am I Welsh). So I offer you a song of praise.
With apologies to Mick Jones and the late Joe Strummer and everyone in the legendary Clash, here is the world premiere of 'Brandon Calling', sung to the tune of 'London Calling' by ClipperSteve.
Brandon Calling to the Trailblazer fans
The future is now, so get in the stands
Brandon calling to the NBA World
Another big banner, will soon be unfurled
Brandon calling, now don't look at us
All the phony Z-Bo-mania has bitten the dust
Brandon calling and I don't wanna shout
But after we jumped you, you called a time-out
Greg Oden is coming, and Rudy's zooming in
Phoenix stopped running, the Spurs are growing thin
The West is a terror, but Dallas has fear
Brandon is calling - and I live by the (Williamette) river
Brandon calling at the top of the key
Aldridge is LaMonster, as anyone can see
Brandon calling see we ain't got no flaws
Travis is clearly the best of Outlaws
Brandon calling, yeah, I was there too
Przybilla and Webster are players it's true
Brandon calling from the three point line
We've got talent already, cap space in '09
