As a longtime Spurs fan living in the Northwest, I was very excited when I saw that the Spurs would be facing the Blazers in the 2nd round of the playoffs. My wife and I will be in attendance for game 3 on Saturday, and I was hoping you fine folks could provide some insight on what to expect & what to do in Portland. Specifically:
- What should I expect from the fans & crowd? Are Portlanders generally accepting of fans of the visiting team? I'm not going to be obnoxious, but should I keep an especially low profile?
- Our trip into town won't be long, but are there any restaurants, landmarks, attractions, or shopping centers I should try to squeeze in?
- How early should I arrive if I want to park in one of the Broadway garages? Or should I avoid them altogether?
Thanks in advance for your help. Hopefully everyone can stay healthy and we'll have a great series!
