    So I have tickets to the game in Boston (the only building Batum says he has never won in) on the 15th. Then I'm taking an 11 hour bus from NYC to Toronto. It will be the first game I've ever seen in Toronto, making it 24 current arenas I have seen the Blazers in. And then I will return to see the Blazers play in Brooklyn. Last season, I went to like 10 or 11 road games and we lost them all. I hope things are different this year!!

    You should get PA to pay you to watch from home.

    Seeing that record I would say you need to let someone else go on this trip.

    All I remember once was Eric trying to get me to go back to his room with him in NOLA!

    Nobody gets it! King got all the road losses out of the way last year so these will be wins!

    It's still Boston. That crowd is intimidating. A win there would be huge.

    King, you should do a video diary of the trip and put it up on youtube and here.

    They're not accusations so much as statements of correlation.

    If the Blazers are at a point where losing makes more sense than winning (i.e., draft position), King should go to all the games. And when the draft lottery takes place, DON'T WATCH.

    You'd think one would tire of that. Sigh.

    Hopefully this season is a do over with your luck. I'm going to bite my tongue unless we start losing. Let's pray that was just some freak luck!
