Gameday Open Thread: Clippers vs. Blazers

Here we go...the first half of a home-and-away.  Will we be able to overcome Maggette and Thornton?  Will Cuttino Mobley bomb us out of existence.  Or will the mighty awesomeness of the awesome and mighty Roy-Aldridge duo plus the occasaional competence of our bench be enough to push us over the top?

P.S.  The Jersey Contest form for this game is  here.  Don't forget that tomorrow's game will not be a part of the contest but Monday's will be!

P.P.S.  There's a Gameday Thread a little bit below for the NCAA Tournament if you want to chat about today's college games as well.

P.P.P.S.  Don't forget to check out the brilliant and even more brilliant ClipsNation to see how the other half lives.

Speaking of that, I wanted to make this weekend a little extra fun so I wrote ClipperSteve proposing an extra bet on the side.  Seeing as how so many of you are good at writing new lyrics to old songs I figured we should wager that the losing team's blog would have to re-write a song about the winning team and/or its blog.  This is provided one team or the other sweeps the weekend, of course.  However I have since reconsidered, figuring it might not be fair to wager on back-to-back wins for a team that has lost 13 of 15.  Also I wrote ClipperSteve late and I don't know if he's willing.  So here is my proposal: I say we unilaterally make the offer.  If the Clips can win both games we at Blazersedge will come up with a nifty song for them.  If you want to get really cocky we could say if the Clippers win either game we will do so...though I'm not sure we're at the point to be able to do that yet.

So what say you?  Should we offer to serenade our brethren if they vanquish us?  And should one or two games be the criterion?  Let me know.

Update: OK...I've heard from ClipperSteve and the wager is on! They will compose a song for us if we sweep, but being a gentleman (and following your instructions) I put us up for the "Sweep or Serenade" option. If we lose even one of the two games we pay off. If you'd like to come up with some practice songs in the meantime, feel free. The thread is open.
