I know they don’t like to say the C-word in Portland (not that C-word, you foul mouth), but this is getting a tad ridiculous. I was pretty amped to see Oden bring the real deal last night, and he did, for all of one block. Then, Bynum refused to get dunked on and single-handedly created a Portland-wide buzz-kill. Way to go, Lakeshow.
So I’m giong to put this out there: The Big Chill could possibly be cursed. I know, I know, it’s a stretch. And by no means am I giving him the “injury-prone” label this early in the game. I think it’s more likely that as a kid he accidentally stumbled into an Indian burial ground and altered some ancient statue ever so slightly, accidentally hit a witch’s mailbox with his car, or is the recipient of some sort of hex.
So rub that lucky rabbit’s foot, Blazer fans.
Oh, and remember that we broke the news here. We were the first people to see Oden’s injury. No one else was watching that game. Not even you, Cheryl Miller.
