After last night's win in Houston, I was dinking around online reading various tweets from the boys. Camby made a simple comment: "I luv our team!" I chuckled as I continued to scroll through the conversations that Nic, Dante and Patty were having yesterday and I concluded .... these guys really do like each other and I'm pretty sure they're having fun playing together. All the manlove aside, it got me thinking... are we REALLY different than other sports teams/fanbases or is it just because I don't follow others like I do the Blazers? I would like to think that we have something special here in Portland but I also refuse to be a rose-colored glasses type of fan.
So my question to you Bedgers is this: How many of you are avid fans of another team? Any sport. Any team. And tell me, how do their players compare to our beloved Blazers? How are they covered by the local media compared to us? Are we really in a bubble up here in the NW? Do other teams think that the national media ignores them too?
