Aaron Brooks' Arrival

I wanted to write a post about this because I'm not sure how much attention everyone pays to the NBA playoffs, and a Duck is emerging as a new star. I attended the Blazers vs Rockets Game 2 playoff game last night in Portland. I've been a Blazers fan all my life and that was the most incredible basketball game experience of my life.

Before the series started I commented to some friends that my perfect scenario is for the Blazers to win the series, and for Aaron Brooks to GO OFF. For those of you not paying attention, Brooks is killing it. Last night he scored 11 points in the last 30 seconds (bullet #4) and had the Blazers fans beside themselves. Since the game was in hand I was just kind of laughing.

This is where it got really funny for me. I attended the game with 2 friends: the one to my right is a huge Arizona Wildcats basketball fan. The friend to my left is an OS fan. I made a comment about how Brooks just seems to have that killer instinct "clutch" factor. The Arizona guy immediately said, "this isn't funny, I think he had 2 game winners against us his last year at Oregon and now he's tormenting me again".

Oh yeah...as I was leaving the fans were all fired up in the concourse. They were chanting and cheering and generally going crazy. The friends with me made a comment about how crazy the environment was. I said, "yeah this is pretty fun, but you should come to a Ducks football game. EVERY game is like this!"
