less than a block away five thousand people are screaming

The Blazers eviscerated Denver in the season finale last night with a 28-point at-home win, securing home court advantage in the first round of the NBA playoffs against Houston. Today there's a three-hour music-and-entertainment-packed rally in the Pioneer Courthouse Square in support of the team's awesome season. Nine minutes in and already my windows are vibrating too hard to keep them shut; leaning out I can see a dense, energetic crowd of red-and-black garbed fans. I can only imagine the pandemonium that will descend in a couple hours when the team actually shows up.

Imagine, because I'm going to bail. I absolutely love this energy, but it's too loud in here to work.

Plus, it's sunny and Nic has the day off.

That was an easy decision.

Yeah, they were the reason we had to have a 3 hour break from running the new trains on the Green Line today - I didn't see any of the rally since we spent that time up by Union Station testing stuff but I'm kind of glad we didn't have to run through it :)
