Check out Leeroy's diary if you haven't already...also EngineerScotty's great comment about people being complicated. That's a great point in a venue (sports) that teaches us to see things in terms of black and white.
And by the way, between working for About.com, writing here, and trying to offer semi-informed opinions to other SBN NBA blogs about their various teams on the side I'm stretched kind of thin this week. That means I have less time than usual to check out the other news outlets and online stories about the Blazers. If you see something interesting please do what Leeroy did and put it in a diary so everyone can see it. That would be a big help to me.
