Well, the last junk just about cut itself with the depression born of the latest Trailblazers news. The signing of Fabricio Oberto. I don't expect him to have a huge impact, but I don't think (hope) he has to spend enough time on the floor to make a huge impact in a bad way neither, and well, darnit, I'm just too dang excited and well, shucks, ecstatic about what's about to happen in just four short days, and the way I see it, if you all just want to talk about how terrible things are all the time then gee, maybe you should just look yourselves in the mirror and say to yourselves, "Golly, I uh I just don't know why I even bother sometimes..."
C'MON PEOPLE, WE'VE MADE IT THIS FAR, AND THE REAL SEASON IS LESS THAN FOUR DAYS AWAY!! DON'T GIVE UP NOW!! THIS IS WHEN THE FUN BEGINS!!! THIS IS WHEN THE TEAM NEEDS US TO SHOW UP AND CHEER!!! WHAT'S DONE IS DONE AND WE CAN'T CHANGE IT, AND EVEN THOUGH IT'S HARD WE HAVE TO LEAVE THIS STUFF TO THE PROFESSIONALS NOW, AND TRUST AND HOPE THAT THEY WANT TO WIN JUST AS BAD AS WE WANT EM TO WIN, AND MAYBE JUST MAYBE IF THERE IS ANY DOUBT IN THEIR HEARTS ABOUT WHICH WAY THIS TEAM'S HEADING WE CAN DROWN IT OUT WITH THE SOUND OF OUR CHEERS, AND TURN IT INTO THE BEST DARN SEASON ANYONE ROUND HURR'S SEEN IN THE LAST TEN YEARS!!!!!
or you know, we can all sit around and criticize and talk about how stupid and terrible it all is....
The daily Junk Drawer (JD) fanpost is the place for true off-topic conversation and people's random thoughts. Its purpose was simple from its infancy; a place where people could come and chat about all of the "whatevers" that didn't fit with the rest of the site and even be loose in terms of byplay and humor. The goal was to foster community...to let people who wanted to get to know each other outside of what they could discern from the strictly basketball posts. We've had happy JD's, sad ones, drawers that looked like a sharing circle, drawers that resembled open mic night at the comedy club... and people have really become a family here.
So if you have a one-off thought, consider posting it here. Everyone else is doing the same, so you will find the JD an eclectic place where you might read something interesting, pointless, profound, or just funny within a few moments. The rules about importance and significance of the topic are suspended in each JD but keep some of these basic rules in mind:
- Be mindful that every image posted slows down the JD, so use discretion in how many you post (you can also link to images you want to share so that they will not overwhelm the JD). When you do post images, put something in the subject line of the comment so that the image can be minimized.
- Ad hominem attacks and swearing will never be tolerated
- Remember everything you write is visible publicly
- Don't use the JD call out or talk about users from other BEdge threads.
As you try and navigate through the junk drawer, remember that you can use 'Z' on your keypad to mark a comment as read and move to the next one and hitting shift-A will mark all comments as read.
