Open Thread on San Antonio Express-News During Wednesday's Game

6

Very interesting to read the live game thread on the San Antonio Express-News site during Portland's win on Wednesday. It goes from acknowledging all of the Blazer injuries before the game, to "they're not playing Roy, this is going to be a feel-good win," to what the heck is happening, let's blow up this team?! Two lessons I was reminded of are 1) we are not the only fans who have micro freak-outs while watching our team as closely as most of us (and apparently S.A. fans) do, and 2) we just need to hang in there optimistically with whomever we have left. Also, Bayless and Juwan are bringing some contagious emotion on a nightly basis that I haven't seen all year. This win showed a lot of heart and looked like fun for everyone playing - none of them have a thing to lose.
