A Repost WITH pics finally! Andy @ the Memphis win, + poll, have you traveled for your team?

First of all, sorry to repost this but when I posted it the other night I couldn't get ALL OF MY GREAT PICS uploaded because photobucket  was down.

Andy and Adam sit in Row A in Memphis - A Recap- We won, I flew 2,300 miles to visit a friend who had moved here for Nike and had not had a friend come out and visit him. I (like LetsBlaze met up with Travis' uncles at BB kings bar after the game. They even bought me and my friend Adam (aka 503rd) a Biere!

When we arrived at the arena we walked down to our seats (Adam was able to buy row A seats for $80!) and made sure the local camera guy saw where we were sitting! Then I yelled at Mike and Mike and made sure they knew where we were sitting and Barrett promised he would get us on tv. Rice was impressed I flew that far just for the game and I was impressed he is still alive and kicking (he looks much older up close and personal)

I am going to include the original post below so the fine folks who already commented on this post get the recognition they so rightfully deserve!

I will then proceed to post so many good pics you will flip your lip.

Well I have finally made it to the Good Life. Starting a new business. Collecting Un-Employment. And of course, taking a week long trip to Memphis to hang out with my good friend from Oregon, Adam the 503rd. This was my first Blazer game away from the comfort of the Rose Garden. 2,300 miles later I was sitting in the best seats I had ever sat in, in an arena that must of had at LEAST 1,000 people there!

 

Seriously though, THIS WAS THE MOST FUN I HAVE EVER HAD AT A GAME! Partly because we won. Well mostly because we won, but the fact that this gorgeous arena couldn’t even manage to scrap together 1/4 attendance meant that our tickets (that would cost $150+ in Portland) cost only $80! As we walked down to our seats we saw a bunch of Travis Outlaws family waving around Giant signs so we knew we would not be the only PTB fans in the house. Being as this was my first away game i expected some of the opposing fans to be lewd and rude, but I didn’t not expect to be the victim of mulitple hate crimes. The first was when they asked me if I wanted to participate in an on-court skit at the end of the quarter. I was so excited, I walked down the visitors tunnel and then then their version of Todd Bosma (the guy who arranges these activities at the Rose Garden) told me they had decided NOT to let me do the skit, and they were going to dress up a Grizzlies fan in a Blazer jersey instead. I was hurt, but he offered me a free Grizzlie T-Shirt for me trouble. Joy! It might of have been better off because the skit involved putting a blindfold on, letting them wrap you up in double sided tape, and then they swept away the $1 bills they had laid out on the ground and let the poor sap roll around trying to collect imaginary money. The second was due to that dastard Grizzlie Bear. He pulled a ‘blaze the trailcat’ and sprayed silly string all up in my mouth and hair, oh they joy again, but at least the ENTIRE arena was watching this Blazer fan represent this site in my custom signed Blazersedge shirt!

Then there was a game as well I think.

According to their website, LeMarcus was killing it (yes, they misspelled his name), then Joel dunks, then I start focusing on trying to get a date with the realy cute Red Headed Grizzlie girl, she smiled at me alot, I think she really likes me.

At half time, we got us some more Adult beverages so we could continue to be loud and obnoxious to all the Griz fans in attendance, all 17 of them.

My words don’t do this game justice, so allow me to say what words cannot, and show you some pictures.

All in all, it was an amazing night, made all the more special by the fact we now have a winning season, AND we found a tattoo parlor right down the street from the Forum, that also serves Burgers and Beer.

Welcome to the Good Life.

the low attendance

was obvious on TV, how sad, reminds me of the Pacers problems post a few days ago (can’t remember who put it up). That is sad stuff. I kept thinking: “Man if this was in Portland those seats would all be full….” I was starting to think our team only played good in front of big crowds, feeding off the energy – so it was nice to see them kick it in an empty arena.

From the sound coming from my TV,

it sounded like there were a lot more Blazer fans than Griz fans,

My favorite teams are the Blazers and any team that is playing the Lakers.

Blazermaniac Andy, you were featured prominently on tv. During the post game report, Mike and Mike were making fun of memphis, like, well, these two blazer fans (someone with a blazermaniac andy t shirt going nuts) represented about half of the crowd here.

It was pretty much a home game

With all of Outlaw’s family there, it turned into Rose Garden East. Which wasn’t a bad thing. The Blazers played a beautiful game and it sounds like you had an awesome time! Wish I could have been there.
