I'm a long time lurker of BEdge, and thought it was time to add my voice to what is a great community. I'm a born and raised portland native, and have loved the blazers since the late 80's. I like most of us was not pleased with the direction this team took in the early 00's, but have been extatic with the past two years. The future is bright fellow fans. Lets get excited. I look forward to becoming part of this fraternity. Just go easy on the initiation rights please. I bruise easily.
