I'm OK knowledgeable! I followed the Blazers first listening to the Shonz and then later Wheels. I loved Snapper. Jerome was my first favorite. I went to Oregonian sportswriting camp in high school and interviewed Terry Porter (he told us how he got that scar) and Petrie. I have a soft spot for Sheed. I lived in an apartment below Joe Kleine in Beaverton one year. I know names like Hap and Ed O. I've survived a couple board migrations (I think I was once 12Jackals after Phil's comments). I almost never post because if I have spare time I'm playing basketball (can't right now because I tore my rotator cuff playing and am rehabbing) or trying to catch a late Blazer game on my computer when everyone here is asleep. But I'm on here a lot, and even though I don't participate, it feels like I've known folks like Sly, Minstrel, HCP, Boob, Brian, MM, CrandC, Stomp, BBert etc forever (yeah, those are my favorites). I will also beg on my knees, Sly!
