myself, I can usually only stomach about two quarters of Blazer basketball. once we get down by twenty, I pretty much lose hope (much like our players) and go on to other things.

lately I've been tivoing Cavs games. I have completely bought into the LeBron James hype.

I remember despising Michael Jordan for years, really right up until his second to last season as a Bull. some of that was the Blazers' defeat, but a lot of that was just resenting all the hype and superstar treatment. looking back, I don't think I really appreciated the greatness of his game until a lot of it was over.

LeBron isn't Jordan. but in some ways he's my chance to get in on the ground floor of appreciating real greatness.

so somewhere around five or six minutes into the third quarter, when it's becoming patently obvious we will once again get our teeth kicked in, what do you do?

I was watching college games up until Monday...I generally prefer college athletics to pro anyway. Especially football.

I suppose I'll be some baseball in the next couple weeks. That or reading a good book. Generally I read while watching Blazer games these days. The combo of the two keeps me semi entertained.

I keep the game going....sometimes. Usually, I will play my guitar while watching.
Hoever, the last game, I just moved to the left about 5 feet and watched my two Oscars swim around in their tank. They can be pretty entertaining at times. Especially when they try to bite my hand.

Once in a while I will feed them 2 inch long gold fish....which they can eat about 20 a piece....but feeder fish aren't all that great for Oscars. So, I don't do it very often. They don't have a lot of nutrients in them and they often bring diseases to the tank. They rock though, and they are still growing. I think the bigger one is about 10 inches long or so, now.

Maybe I'm a bit masochistic, but I keep watching until the final buzzer sounds. I quit worrying about wins and losses a long time ago. I'm mainly interested in seeing if the young players are developing their games, who I think I want to see stick around next season, who might be starter material next year, etc. I guess I've been a Blazer fan so long I just don't know how not to watch.

Very nice that's a decent size for a Oscar...we should let them play with my Red Belly Piranha who is about 8 inches now. :biggrin:

Piranha and Oscar are both fascinating fish to watch IMO.
