Lately I have been wondering if it is normal to be so passionate about the Blazers. There is a lockout happening and I check for fresh Blazer news daily. I watch other teams and pretend they are the Blazers. I mentally dress up people, like our friend Tom Shane, in a Blazer uniform and toss alley-oops that he dunks in my mind. I need some NBA action soon or it'll get even wierder.
