So I know we're all grieving about the loss of Roy and his mad skills, but you all know that there is actually real NBA professional basketball happening in less than a month, right? This is cause for celebration!
I just moved to LA in September, and have been looking forward to being able to catch the Blazers a lot more frequently in person than when I was out on the East Coast. As it turns out, they'll be down here right away, on January 1st, to take on (Chris Paul and?) the Clippers at Staples Center.
I seem to remember that there are a decent number of LA BEdgers, so if you are planning to be at the game, hit me up in the comments! I'm thinking about grabbing a block of cheap upper deck seats on StubHub, so if you want in let me know and we can have a little Blazer cheering section. In any case, if you'll be there, let's try and find a spot to meet up, perhaps before the game?
When I was in the NYC area, we started a google group for NY-area Blazer fans to watch games on TV and catch them when they were in town -- if anyone is interested in doing that here (or, better, already is doing that here) then please let me know in the comments and we'll figure it out.
Happy holidays from (a decidedly rainy and Portland-like today) Los Angeles!
