Gameday Open Thread: Kings

Here we go.  First game of the preseason: 7PM tip at home in the Rose Garden against the Sacramento Kings. Here's a nice game preview from SacTown Royalty's Tom Ziller which includes his usual brilliance...

A pseudo-haiku about the Portland Trail Blazers:

Rip City, lit again.
That's not a Jailblazers joke.
It's a "WATCH OUT FOR THAT BURNING METEORITE YOU GOD-FORSAKEN WOODSY HIPPIES!" joke.

Tonight's thread might be a little bit deserted interesting because, uh, the game isn't being televised anywhere.  Other than suggest that you check out 955thegame.com I don't know what to tell you.  Gamecast?  Maybe?

This post from Brian T. Smith and this article from Jason Quick and these links from Sean Meagher should keep you occupied until, I don't know, halfway through the first quarter. At that point I suggest going out to the hoop in your front yard, rounding up the neighborhood kids, choosing up sides and making the best of a depressing situation.

As always, I'll follow with a post-game recap late tonight with my first-hand observations from the RG.  

Hopefully the Blazers play better than their television setup.
