I had tickets to tonight's game. I didn't go. Here's why.



The last Blazers playoff game I went to was Blazers vs. Rockets, 2009, game 1.

I got front row seats to the blazers getting blown out by 30 points (well, final score was 18, but you know).

My parents have season tickets and wanted me to go instead of them, but I couldn't go. I would never be able to live with myself again if I went to another Blazers vs. Rockets playoff game only to watch them lose again.

I'm a logical person. I like to think I don't believe in superstition. But I just knew I couldn't go to the game. I couldn't go. And we won.

I will find a way to go to the next round.

Go Blazers. I lost my voice.

PS: I was also at the Brandon Roy regular season 'The Shot' game. So, to summarize, of the four or so games I have ever been to, I have been to the 'Shot' game, I was at the blowout game 1 2009 playoffs, and I refused to go tonight.
