Timmay! gives the recap the Portland Trailblazer's loss to the eventual 2014 NBA Champion Phoenix Suns.
Postgame: Suns 104, Blazers 98 - Blazer's Edge
You know those worst-case scenarios and ugly predictions for the Blazers this season? This was a game that caused those thoughts to enter the back of your head.

But we have three weeks, and some returning personnel, before the season starts.
Ben Golliver relays some interesting information about how an MLS team might end up being the king of professional sports in Portland, OR.

"Soccer just seems hipper. The oddities of the game-its Eurocentric flavor, its reliance on crowd participation, its appeal to mustachioed baristas-dovetail with the rise of a young downtown culture."

Also, an isolated queen is a vulnerable queen, because if lost, there is no ability to counter the loss of value immediately.
IT'S A MIRACLE! THEY REPLACED CHALUPA 100 POINT GIVEAWAY! Who decided to step in and save the day?
The promotion, which will reportedly begin at the home regular season opener, replaces the popular "Free Chalupa" deal with Taco Bell that ran for more than a decade. Blazers president Chris McGowan told reporters at Media Day that a Chalupa replacement would be announced last week.
