Been taking a fair share of calls about Oregon's football uniforms. They've been called more Oakland Raider like than Duck like. Where are the school colors? I've heard it all and it's getting really boring. Let's get this straight, if you're older that 18 and not a possible recruit or current player no one cares about your opinion. The kids love the whole fashion show so deal with it! When I went to log onto my hotmail account this morning, the MSN page opened and halfway down the page was a link to a story where you could "see Oregon's uniforms for the BCS Title game"! You can't pay for that kind of publicity. The whole fuddy-duddy routine is boring. Whining about the Duck uniforms is now officially in the category of "turn down that rock and roll" or "I hate night games". You don't like the colors, don't buy the gear, go green and yellow. I was with 3 years ago when I read about recruits overwhelmingly loving how the Ducks were decked out in different get-ups for just about every game. That's the trump card so do yourselves a favor and stop banging your head against the wall and move on! FYI, there is a story on Page 2 of ESPN's site by Paul Lukas that asks what you think of the UO unis that will be on display for the championship game against Auburn.
I just read that a brawl broke out during Hulk Hogan's wedding. It happened between a security guard and a member of the paparazzi. I could not help but be amazed that anyone still cared what happened to this clown. Still, would have been nice to see the loser with the camera body slammed!
Trailblazers at Dallas is the 2nd half of the ESPN double header this evening. Portland has suddenly become drama central. Are Brandon Roy and Andre Miller getting along? Has the team tuned out coach McMillian? Is it time to make a few moves and go back to the drawing board? Legit questions all. This team is a game below .500 and seems to get stuck in neutral offensively at the most inopportune times. They have 8 games left in calendar year 2010, 4 at home and 4 on the road. After the Mavs tonight, they have 3 in a row at the Rose Garden against the Twolves, Warriors and Bucks. In order these teams sport 1, 3 and 3 wins on the road. I think we'll learn alot about the direction of the Trailblazers during that stretch. Stay tuned.
