While working on my romance WIP tonight, I tuned in to NBA radio to listen to the Portland Trail Blazers incinerate the Golden State Warriors. I’ve been a Blazers fan since I moved to Portland in 2001. I’m so proud of them right now. They are the youngest team in the NBA but they are playing with poise and passion, with Brandon Roy (picture above–definite romance hero material, n’est-ce pas?) leading the way. They’ve won 17 of their last 18 games, all without their number one draft pick (Greg Oden) who is out for the season with an injury.
I don’t play any sports (unless you count vintage clothes shopping as one). My BF isn’t a sports fan. All my friends think it’s really weird when I rattle off Blazers stats. What can I say? I love some good ball handling (hee hee).
How about you? Do you take time out from crafting brilliant dialogue to cheer on a local team?
