We haven't had a chance to talk to our friend Mike Barrett in a while. He was good enough to answer a few questions for us today.
Blazersedge: First just an overview: How is this season going for you? Is there a different feel this year for you as a broadcaster than in seasons past? If so, how?
Blazersedge: Share your memories of the streak with us. You had the best seat in the house for one of the most remarkable accomplishments any of us will ever see. What sticks in your mind?
Blazersedge: You travel with the team on the road. What is the mood like right now?
Blazersedge: How much difference does winning make in the atmosphere surrounding the team?
Blazersedge: What Blazer has surprised you most to this point in the season? Who had you hoped to see more from (and maybe still do)?
Blazersedge: It's in the back of every fan's mind (and I know it must be in the back of yours and the organization's) that now this team has what Harry Glickman called "an honest chance" to make the playoffs. At what point does that emerge from the back of the mind and start being spoken of as reality?
Blazersedge: Will Brandon Roy make the All-Star team?
Blazersedge: What's the conversation like in Blazer circles about the Comcast situation? Has there been any change? What do you foresee?
Blazersedge: Fans are adjusting to the work of Rebecca Haarlow on the sidelines. The comments have been all over the board, just about everything you'd expect to hear and more. Give us some insight on what it's been like working with Rebecca. If you can, also help us understand some of the challenges and adjustments a person in her position faces learning the ropes.
Blazersedge: How much of a chance have you had to observe Greg Oden travelling with the team? How do his spirits seem to you?
Blazersedge: What's the biggest challenge facing the team as we head into the heart of the season?
Thanks to Mike for his always-intriguing answers!
