Portland Trail Blazers, 3-0. OK, we've got 63 more games to play until the play-offs begin. But I'm a happy season-ticket-holder!
Thursday night after the game I waited for the 70 bus across the street from the Rose Garden Arena. First time I noticed this light-show-sort-of-sign on the building. Cheers! That's what we'd been doing inside that great big building!
By the way, those two police cars and their officers are always outside the arena, before and after the games. I think it's a good idea in a crowd of around 20,000, some of whom have been drinking beer for several hours, to have them visible; most of the 20,000 had already made their way far from the building. The flashing light bars help folks find their way once they've exited the arena--people like me because I'm still learning my way around the place.
