Well, the season is getting closer. A month and a half, and we're there. In my role as one of two 2008-2009 Poet Laureates, summer has given me little poetic material in comparison to during the season. But that will all change when the Portland Trailblazers take to the court for the 2008-2009 season.
I plan to undertake a difficult task. Well, difficult for me, as I am no where near as skilled in poetry as my counterpart St. Bayno. Beginning with the first game of the season, begins a new epic that will far outweigh the first one. Each game is a part of the story, and after 82+ segments (I'm hoping for at least 98!) we will have one giant epic poem about our favorite team and their season.
Last time, I used a medieval knighthood setting, and it worked well enough to win me a share of my title. However, there is more than one genre in which the epic can be set.
This is where you come in. Which genre would you like to see the 2008-2009 Portland Trailblazers season be told in? Please vote below, or suggest your own. What would you like to see in the genre you voted for? What players would fit best as which kind of characters? I may not choose the one with the most votes, but the one that piques my interest the most.
People always say to think outside the box. Unfortunately that almost always results in piles of unorganized garbage. The only times when it doesn't is the rare occasion when someone makes a new box. True creativity happens when you make people say, "I didn't know the box could do that."
Lets make the box special. Thanks!
