Red Hot and Rolling

Bill Walton? Just another guy with an old record collection. Clyde Drexler? Glide on over. The new look Blazers are here and they had a fun win tonight against Seattle. I still can’t handle Ruben Patterson, but the rest of them played with charm and got Coach Nate a big win up in the land of the Seahawk. I've been accused of hyperbole before but Coach Nate's leadership skills? We should let him coach for a few years and then elect him governor. There is something to build on with this team. The Maryland guards, the youthful exuberance. They have a rare quality in professional sports: They seem innocent.
I was thinking back to the great Seattle team. Let’s see how my memory’s working: Gus Johnson, Dennis Johnson, Downtown Freddy Brown, Jack Sikma, mmm. That’s about it. Against the Washington team twice in the finals with each team winning one. Wes Unseld, Elvin Hayes. That’s all I can remember, folks. I hope it's right.

At least I got Downtown Freddy Brown, proving the importance of a good nickname.
