Support The Blazers

   I've posted before that often within Blazer's Edge I feel a little out of place.  Like maybe I've accidently sat down at the "cool kids" table. Suddenly everyone get's quiet and get's up and moves.  I fully admit that often going through posts of others, I realize that while I am a fan, I'm not as big a fan as many within Blazers Edge. I love The Blazers and have followed them most of my life, but somehow even that devotion seems to pale to the support I see many Blazer Edge regulars demonstrate.  But I'll tell you something, today, right now, I'm happy to be here.

   I'm happy to be here because of the support. I'm so disgusted and disappointed right now at a lot of the media and a lot of the local "fans".  Other sites that shall remain unnamed seem filled with people that have given up.  It doesn't suprise me that a lot of the national media have jumped ship. The Blazers have gone from Dark Horse Darlings to The Team Houston is going to beat before they go on to "scare" LA. This after only 48 minutes of play. But that's the nature of the beast.  But what really disappoints me is the number of local fans that seem to have totally given up.

  I knew Blazers Edge would be different. I expect the support to flow from this site until the final buzzer of the final game and beyond.  That's mostly what I see and hear.  So even though I don't own stuffed characters of Clyde and Buck and I don't fondly dust my 1976 commerative Blazers Playoff 7-UP bottle maybe I could eat my lunch at this table?

  Do I know how this playoff series is going to play out? Nope. But I know I'm going to support The Blazers and believe they can win each game, whether the ball get's thrown up in the air to start 3 more games or 7 more games.  I may NOT be the biggest fan The Blazer have, but I am a fan that believes you support your team unconditionally and completely throughout the playoffs.
