In 2005/2006 we were The Noah's Ark. A ship full of beasts, trying to survive.
In 2006/2007 we were The Mayflower. Small party of religiously commited Trail Blazers
heading to a New World.
In 2007/2008 we were The Arizona. We may argue we became that big proud Battleship
that got sunk before the war had even started.
In 2008/2009 we were The Victoria. We got a chance at circumnavigating the NBA World.
First in a long time.
In 2009/2010 we were The USS Hornet CV-8. We started with some injuries, looked really
good mid way through the season, got some big wins, but got hit again and again. For
a moment it looked like we could survive, but at the bridge everybody knew we were
In 2010/2011 we were The USS Indianapolis (CA-35), the Portland-class cruiser that

Japan), which seemed to be a pattern of his (yeah, he was young, whatever). That season
it was revealed we had too many fractures under the water line. We would never see the
bomb hitting the enemy. We watched ourselves sorrounded by media sharks smelling our
In 2011/2012 we were The Bounty. Don´t need to elaborate too much here, but if I had to,
I´d say Captain Nate, a man who takes his sense of discipline and command too far, had
got rid of all Liutenant Aldridge´s pals (Sergio, Rudy, Miller, ...) and, once things got
difficult again, Liutenant Aldridge lets say didn´t speak loud enough to make himself heard
enough in defense of his captain.

Now is your time to say whether you agree or disagree with any of those and, moreover,
explain which ship you think the Blazers will be in 2012/2013.
