    Blazer players saying they want to win a game for coach in his former team's city. Nice sentiment....save it for next season.

    No Blazer player past or present shares my birthday. We have to keep losing, this is a must lose game and the team needs to keep putting in performances like they did earlier today. Go Blazers! Get the best pick possible!!!

    That guy isn't going to suit up for us again this season... that's my guess at least but I'm excited for him to be here next season.

    No birthday to share, but very sadly, Jerome passed on my birthday date.
    The ultimate bummer.

    I share a birthday with Richard Nixon, Bob Denver, and Joan Baez

    most of you won't know who Bob Denver is unless you google him

    Nixon was the best passer though

    Glad that Hart isn’t playing. We already know what he does and he also improves our odds of winning hehe. Run the offense thru Elleby for an entire game just for the lolz.

    I would wonder who would have enough time on their hands to create a fake Jay Allen Twitter account.
