I'm the ball boy

my dad didn't tell me about this story. i heard it was on here from someone else.true story as there isn't a day goes by that i don't think about it,not still bummed about the disappointment from some twenty five plus years ago but what it reminds me of today.blazer basketball was and is everything to my dad, and as i looked up to him, it became everything to me.growing up we listened to most games on the radio because we didn't have cable and watched some at my grandmas.those are amongst the greatest memories of my life of me and my dad listening to schonz on the radio.we weren't fans we were fanatics.my dad,mike Swanson is the biggest blazer fan i have ever encountered.when we finally got season tickets and watched the bulls and pistons beat us in the finals,i was so upset but my dad said just enjoy being here because this may never happen again in either of our life times.so now after every season we chuckle and say maybe next year.what I'm going to say next will probably make him mad because he expects sympathy from no one.this great fan and even better dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer last year.so while these millionaires battle over this labor dispute my dad is battling for something that's really important,his life.all he wants to do is watch his blazers play.i wish theses owners and players would realize the millions they make from this game are because of great fans like my dad and they owe it to him and all fans to get back on the court because its about more than the game its also about creating life long memories and stories like the ball boy one he told.so after all these years and games I've seen and finals I've been too they don't even compare to the two of us listening to schonz on am radio.love you dad.go rip city!
