A Moment of Silence for sweet ticket deals, 11

Last season was a great one if you are but a peasant surf who must go to Blazer games on the cheap. The team lost a lot of games, true, but they were competitive. There was the pre-Oden young core to see, in particular, watching Brandon Roy become the leader of the team was truly rewarding.

Also, demand for tickets was low. The Blazers were close to paying you to go to the game just to keep the players from getting depressed. Remember those package deals that were 2 tickets to 3 games, plus a couple odd gifts like movie passes or restaurant gift certificates, for $86? This my friends, was a deal. Also, a fond memory. Something to tell your grandchildren.
