    You should see my prayer room. Signed program from opening day at the ACC by Tmac, countless number of shirts and jerseys, stubs, and even printed tickets from years where playoffs were not realized, but nevertheless were sold to season ticket holders only to have MLSE reimburse us, or use it for the re-up. I gots all the cheesy season ticket holder gifts, some of them are lame, like a plaque with my name in one of the lockers, telling me I am part of the team (i think all the season ticket holders got it that year).

    I feel like Tom Hanks, I am soon going to have to put a basketball on a mount and start talking to it.


    ... but today I pray that Zeus grants us victory and allows us to humiliate our enemies and make their supporters cry in excruciating pain.

    Last night the starters score 92 of there 105 points. We should have an advantage with are bench. Their starters must be exhausted after all that scoring.

    Good point.. however what I'm worried about is the hangover from New Year's. The Raptors got spanked when they played the Spurs after Christmas. Portland won't have that same issue since they played yesterday.

    I think we can beat them though.. but they are a playoff team right now and the Raptors are not. Definitely a good test.

    good thinking planetmars, I know exactly what you mean. Hope they got over the hangover fast. Wins never get easier, they are always difficult. Hope the holidays have not made our group too soft, portland got woken the *f* up last night

    (on second thought) this time its personal, I think the players are going to be alright, there is a little matter that needs to be taken care of

    This is the most important game of the season thus far, in my opinion. I hope the boys came to play. I really hope Demar especially rises to the occasion and has a big night.

    Portland fans seem extremely confident in winning this game.
    Like the raps are a joke.
    Hope our boys bring it tonight.

    Great start so far, just too many threes. We had a serious flow of offense from defense, and those threes really broke it down. (Amir got away with a nasty double dribble).

    Some splendid defence though. Aldridge with 2 points so far.
