I've never mentioned it before, but when I'm not blogging I'm a graduate student here. Portland State doesn't have much men's basketball tradition beyond the legendary Freeman Williams and current Spurs reserve Ime Udoka (both those guys have really interesting stories by the way, I recommend checking them out if you haven't before).
As of 2008, PSU will be a part of NCAA March Madness for the first time ever. They steam-rolled the Big Sky Conference this season and just won their conference tournament, snatching up that automatic bid. (Odd reference to the Portland City Grill in that SportsCenter Highlight. How stuffy, maybe thats the spot for Conneticut folks when they pass through. No love for The Yamhill?). What do you know, something to be proud of. And don't sleep on PSU come tournament time, this team is more solid than you think. There is enough here to make an elite team work, and enough to beat them if they don't
So, although not NBA/Blazer/Finland-related, a gracious DeceptivelyQuick thank you and congratulations to the PSU basketball team.
I think the situation calls for me to once again post this:
Dance like you got a Darth Vader mask on.
