I have never seen the Rose Garden crowd so fired up throughout an entire game!
You guys were absolutely amazing! Muting out the Suns starting lineup with chants of LETS GO BLAZERS!!! CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP!!! The Blazers were down the entire game and the energy and intensity from the fans never let up for a second. DE-FENSE DE-FENSE! was the norm for 48 minutes of play. Seeing the Garden packed and hopped up on goofballs before the tip was awe inspiring, so I thought. But at the end of the night with 1 minute left I realized that was nothing. The Portland faithful busted out in a chant of LETS GO BLAZERS, clap clap clap clap clap! Everyone knew the season was over, but you showed the TNT broadcasters and the national audience what it means to be a Blazer fan. I know that every franchise claims to have the best fans in the league, but we are truly the best of the best, the elite, us characters are going to Top Gun.
