This is a brief post, but I was really irate last night toward the end of the Blazers-Pistons game and I needed to vent to some of you sane Blazer fans out there. It was ridiculous - Blazer fans were actually booing the team at the end of the game, despite that we were in the midst of a 20-point win.
Why were they booing? Because we turned the ball over on an offensive possession that could have had us break the 100 point mark, earning everyone Chalupas from Taco Bell. We ended up hitting the mark on a Rudy 3-pointer very soon after, and almost worse - as soon as Rudy hit that 3 half of the stadium got up and left.
Don't get me wrong, I like to walk away with some free food as much as the next person, but it is absolutely ridiculous that we'd boo our team in a convincing win (not to mention that it was a rebound game after that drubbing in LA) over a freaking $1 Taco Bell item, and that people are staying at the game not to congratulate their team in a win, but to wait for their Chalupa coupon.
Most people paid more than 20x that amount to be at the game - show some class and show the team the support it deserves. Portland is known for our great stadium and fans - we're better than that - let's show it
