Hello, my name is Cody Touchstone. I am an aspiring sports journalist in Oregon, who is currently a senior in high school (and was accepted to the University of Oregon). I have been an avid reader of this site for awhile now (but not a commenter, will change that!) and I slowly started to come up with my own ideas and opinions for the Portland Trail Blazers, as well as the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Mariners. So I thought, what better than to start a blog to share and discuss my passion and knowledge of Northwest Sports! So I ask if you guys can stop by my new blog and read my first article about how the Trail Blazers look for next year ( http://northwest-sports.blogspot.com/2011/03/trail-blazers-for-2010-2011-my-first.html ). I tried to make my first article as in depth as possible, but it is still only my first one. So if you guys can drop by, and maybe give me tips on how to make the article better, and what else I should write about, that would be much appreciated. Thanks!
