OK...my game day rituals are complete. I have worn nothing with Boston colors in it. I have praised every red light I've run into and cursed the green. I have worked out as hard as I possibly can and not even thought of giving up for one second while exercising. The butterflies are going in my stomach. I have a laser-eyed focus. All other thoughts are banished. I am prepared. As we speak the coaches are huddled with the team in the depths of the arena, giving the team their last-minute rundown. Let's hope they're prepared too.
This is the biggest game the Blazers have played since opening night. Enjoy the game and the conversation!
