Pay its break here really appreciate you listening about to get some podcast excellence is presented by less Schwab tires doing the right thing since 1952. This is dirt and spray. It's over. Warm. What sandy dirt Johnson and Brendan spray. The bad good. Yeah I have it but it's. Good. A big problem. Everybody did BO OK are there. Durden spray John and maybe we'll see. All right it's time to do it. Well look to in the rose C. At me. Third straight here happened Wednesday happy hump day everybody out there are young Damian we got a big day of Portland today to celebrate on a big day import that my man celebrating the forty year anniversary of the only major championship this city has ever seen well we have warehouses packed and off timber strands two seconds into the show major championship come on steroids may be honored people of their parade there was over a million for the blaze. Site it's crazy to think that it's actually been forty years it still blows me away like I was doing some research before the show about it did just the longest title droughts major title droughts and cities. It whatever you look at those rankings for some reason we get slapped in the face because they only count cities with two teams yeah it's been we only have one so. But I saw Charlotte on the listens I guess Charlotte hasn't won one since the hornets the Panthers came what we've what what ya Portland. So what yet but the only season that longer droughts a believer San Diego man he's a more than one team won by the way seeing Diego I think we got better odds to win soon in San Diego that we do the Padres soccer gonna suck right around the time chargers any man -- the chargers are gone so that's all they got and then now buffalo is one good all buffalo still on that list they don't want one and a long time. And Milwaukee. So that's the kind of company that were info Jesse I don't that's not fair I've always had a problem with that Milwaukee should not be on the list. They get the Packers. Yeah do you do you cry do you claim the Packers a veteran Malarkey. Hell yes you do is a different city with the distant yeah between my two sides go the distance right now hundred miles I think all that off that's like Eugene and Portland. If far pro football team played in Eugene we would we not. Claim the Eugene Super Bowl champion Eugene civil GA of snow you would but it wouldn't be credited to the city though. Yeah this doesn't. I'm wake up with the family itself but the fan base is the same yeah everybody Milwaukee's a Packers fan that is very unless they're displaced barriers in some for some reason I'm the moved to Milwaukee and missile is that this is the point that I remember trying to bring up there in the World Series for everybody talks about droughts and how long suffering fan bases and then they have won one in forever. And it was like that's something that as the Portland or does stick out today because I feel like we don't ever give credit for going through a forty year title drought OK so it's a 118 miles it's basically. It's two hours two hours so it's a well like lacy Washington to Portland organs hit blow your earlier than Eugene LO so a tad further OK rose Byrd. Give rose froze birds numbered two hours rose cricket Canada felt that drive a million tell Rosenberg's a little further south. Either way you when I'm saying I get the point but. And that's why they're there's always an. There's mixed emotions on a day like today because you have the excitement of of celebrating and honoring a team that is the and now also reminds yeah. It's been forty years somebody Texan I was more excited for chambers bay which is in Washington in the timbers championship swagger. Google and just saying that's just one is not representative of the hole and say look it was cool we were happy that they wanted but he's talked about soccer we did this is not one of the major for sports and is in my country even if you wanna say it is it's just not one we've been open and honest on the show now we just don't follow it as just not now did not are bad maybe to put it at that same commerce say I think there are less than a million people that watched that thing on TV I did see I coolest thing when I was we get ready for the radio show -- -- some audio because we got the radio call from shuns of the championship. And coincidentally and he's perfect timing today. Britain must burger announced is retiring prep must Berger has the call on CBS of the same game are you guys hitting a conspiracy theory think he was forced out by the mixing comments or is he just actually no I figured. Ire okay I don't think he did it was I think about that they've been retired him to get off I mean that's why they took him off this Saturday night game and put them on the SEC network I think there. They've been slowly working this for awhile Lisa Brown must burger that was a fun flash in the past on your club brown must murder here a year long haul came alive yeah spots in the stadium and you know you were gonna say that he was being forced out there cnet's stupid conspiracy every turn out they would have done it right after the comments in the Katrina juries callable at less money to admit he's coach is called them comfortable on the called the Kentucky Tennessee game last night yeah I visit us head you know I don't think he cares about like K I need this season to end for me to properly lock away you know. He's 10 that is Molina Vegas he's already announced he's moving to Vegas which is just par Fannie starting any death is what else would Brad must murdered at least moving to Vegas with his famine is starting handicapping business I am going to request an interview next time I go to Vegas even his vacation just to spend ten minutes with I would love to interview brought us the skinny one. What do those car got called those. Those those yard drinks all one of the he had to leave our drinks and we are drink GA give me one of those with him he's such an assistant my full piano and a final scene of casino. Win. He said there were those big giant sunglasses stared at fourteen TVs that is that's us. Now Tennessee must murder doing that deals is B and some would handle little office somewhere we're all but tomorrow. Her must bird that's absolutely Brit must courtesy of it is a funny coincidence is that I mean. It may be the elder generations will remember this when he was the one that was on the call 877 title game I was broadcaster gasoline we pulled the I will bring that to a little later in the show. But I was I was kind of looking at those calls and I was thinking about this is weird get ready for the radio program today. And I noticed after watching it on TV and allowed him prior to this but for people who don't saws watching the re I was watching it again on on YouTube. And Walton celebrates because they whine and instead it's not like he used it's not like how it is now. The fans rushed the court or he's going crazy long stride need to locker room. And wall is jerseys ripped off his back lots sister don't like instantaneously. His Jersey is off him in maybe ten seconds after they win the title. And I started thinking unless somebody knows who has that Jersey. And like how come I've never grab something from a take gas sporting event. You've never brought home some sort of memorabilia from an a from an event like that I don't think I have no yet the I when I was at the 2010 national title game grant the ducks did not wins so the the memory isn't quite as fond as it would have been if they would have won the game. But I was walking around on the field after the game and I grabbed it remember the grassy turf was really bad and there is like did it looking chunks of grass all over the field. I grabbed one put it in my pocket. Like a big chunk like a decent size chided decent sized just test the airport I took is the airport I brought home and eventually died but it was pretty cool things that the dirt I don't have the dirty yourself with a jar I am I should attempt to charger but yeah I had a talk of grass from the championship game in 2010 it lasted like two and a half yard die I. Have. One of the Mariner's all star banners from the light posts. Now pretty cool so I have that and now some home plate from Safeco Field okay that's cake and that's pretty bad hell did you get home plate and say Joseph quiet. No I I know some people own. PIX days you got like some guy ages know they talk in a way as I don't play part of the planning. Group for the all star game Newton in Seattle if time. And that's kickass when you get these got a general judging you get some vehicles or somebody said apparently somebody stole the net after the game and 877 there's a crazy sorry about the ball and where the ball ended up after the game Walters Jersey's been missing for forty years had. How cool would that be your grandfather had better your dad had that Jersey and he's McKay wanted to give you some did not blow. That is kick out that is pretty Venice I one regret that I do have it's not that I could have stole it could have purchased. I really have a regret not buying. A seat from. Who has it. Oh the 49 results candlestick candlestick and yeah I had an opportunity using a hundred dollars and it isn't you know as crappy little. Ballpark seat but he could of owned a piece of that stadium. Like history they were solid they were going my act they stick is that there were so many big moments especially for niner fans 'cause the giants didn't have a ton of what they had some good teams and it in one World Series so they went over to AT&T super niner fans or somebody great moments in candles and what is a male having his office it's is that a duck thing always get a pair -- seats I believe from all Watson stadium before they renovated it I believe that's what it is yet those are pretty cool in my brother actually my brother in Charlotte used to have a neighbor who would lived in San Francisco and had one of those moments where he was at the 1989. World Series game between DA's and in the giants with the earthquake. In his seat came loose in this stadium because he was it written in everything started to shake in the nuts and bolts fell out. So is CK lose it he just stole a seed is he ran out of the ballpark. He picked deceit about because it came loose they wish they gravity we were I was visited like three years ago we went into the guy's garage was like get to see from candlestick from the enameled series are you. Or equal to what. And random things he wants from sports by tiff that would be cool not I mean obviously you know up yet Walton Jersey they got ripped off but like. I think about like when Lloyd McClendon got wind and pin was tiring was based on the basis that like a guy hands on it out and have him sign it or something like that the pine tar bat from George Brett guy that's pretty that's a tough question. I'd say the court back from Sosa would be pretty cool but the cool guy appellate court split open it inevitable offense seeking glimpse inside what about how. I'm having a really bad time remembering the names right now what's the guy baseball player yet the thing and he threw out the back of his pot of old negro Phil Niekro Emory board as you can and he's the file the baseball throwing around valid print it out there are worried about Leo good and bad ass. We got a fantastic journey we're gonna talk a little about the championship the blazers celebrating the fortieth anniversary. I tonight against the lakers of the Mota senator I don't know if there's like a contractual obligation. I did see a Comcast nor KGW. Neither local affiliates gonna carry anything at halftime of their celebration how you know entry get an accurate that. I don't know I that doesn't mean he's I would assume because contest is good about with the blazers with since they have home. I'd assume there's got to be something contractually it doesn't allow him to air and right and ESPN game maybe EST I don't know if he has the end scout work their way and do some thing or maybe they'll shall stuff and the post game I'm no idea. Now I -- just think that's kind of drop of the ball a little bit it's one of those things like playoff introductions you wanna see it if you're not gonna be able to be asked the arena tonight you wanna see what that ceremonies can look like to answers wags question somebody Dyson that inflatable balls from the patriots that be kind of cool under control Sunnis and dealing Jesse's in the ball that big unit blew the bird uplift. Poll Soledad that famous baseball that was all Briscoe my man who's in lieu pinellas -- city kicked editor with. I also like somebody said that they they nabbed a chunk of turf from the resurgent this year after the civil war but he's still turf. They've cut it out doesn't he go down there with an exact don't knife and cut out a targets inside and that's a -- fans it's got to be in behalf and I'm sorry dear friend that does that you can't complain about doctrine right earned your turf you know doctors are damaging it has damaged field right there to keep her forever that's so bad ass that was fun. Curt Schilling's bloody sock which is gross me out. An island into a whole lot forming. I'd like the empty booze bottle pay entire Red Sox team drank before they went to the field in Yankee Stadium that's pretty solid yet they stick got a decent take a shot of whiskey before every game one of those empty bottles signed by the entire team down. That be cool. Is you know it memories of sports and things that we've missed out on and the blazers championship celebration tonight he's going to be attend a fund. A people go to that game you really get enjoyed can be good time to Walgreens in town. Was jerseys missing will bring back some of the audio John's final call her room back must burgers final call Ron two or actor and Sprague at Peter Johnson operated Sprague. We've got carry tiger's gonna join the show in fifteen minutes to give us his recollection in his memories of the blazers championship in nineteen. 77 in the coming up next. Sometimes history tells us that you may have to pass. On a potential Michael Jordan type player will explain why he got during spring a Portland Sports Radio 1080 the fan. Really good things that people would like sports memorabilia wise we had somebody tweet us brand. He's got the or go any and from the day after they won the title which is kickass that's awesome I'm a big believer in that. I love getting newspaper magazine. Covers whenever anything big happens I always trying snap but a newspaper like I've by I think about us the the newspapers after looted the shot you did after the shot and you also got us the the Cleveland newspaper for LeBron time publicly ask plain dealer of the Dave ended the title drought yes those are so bad ass to me those are things that you know when they obviously want him signed. But even if you don't you still frames of Raymond woman and man gave absolutely beat the other one know that that makes you dislike the cubs little bit we tried to get cubs World Series newspapers. Is usually goes I mean you'll call out to it'd the company and that will charge a couple blocks it's whatever is not a huge deal. What was Chicago in charge of finance for reference Cleveland's. Was three dollars shipping was for yeah it was more expensive to do that here's a seven bucks for newsprint I said gladly charged my card please. I called Chicago and I did that tread I did the the other cheek sun times. Temples of the more like 89 dollars and electricity for them cover their right DA data might well. Because the demand is higher for cubs covered they asked not really worth it because somehow it just weighed in get lacking get when you sell me on eBay in 94 years exactly I terriers by the way coming up in eleven minutes to talk about his his memories. From the end in 1977 blazers championship against the sixers. A lottery this quote. In this comes from my dad most winning says quote I'm just telling you. If today the browns pass on to Shawn Watson. They're passing on Michael Jordan who I'm just telling you I don't know what the heck I'm talking about I'm just an old funky cook college coach. But John Watson is the best buy a long shot. I tell you change things you know change a culture. For me it's through discipline in recruiting and staffing and all that stuff for them its decision making its who you pick. It would be the easiest players that hue Jackson ever coached I'm sure he's coaching good ones and so by. But Da'Sean is just simple very low maintenance tumble the same guy every day and always ready comes to meeting. Prepared. So dabhol likening to Shawn Watson to Michael Jordan in the browns' pass up Michael George. I've bad I'm kind of Watson's and around Tennessee and really you gotta you gotta make back and a comparison. And it is no surprise and a coach is going to be confident his guy and and he helped them win a national titles include there's a big love affair there. Between dabble Sweeney in India shall wants and as quarterback and this is setting the bar may be. A little bit too high and he's he's going to be a fascinating got to watch he really is because. He's in that mold of spread quarterbacks that really scare NFL teams away some of had success some album. Haven't some moment in flash in the pans and RG 3201 great year got hurt and hasn't been able to do leaning cents and then you look at a guy like Marcus Mario at a who came out organs similar style running the spread people said he doesn't run a Harley doesn't wanna call plays he can't go under senator there's no way it's gonna work. And he's been pretty damn good through his first two years in the NFL so. It's always a crapshoot when your drafting quarterbacks and I think the interesting part what Cleveland once again having a number one pick is. Are they going to be willing to take another gamble again if I'm Cleveland I'm almost looking at what they did last year. And saying that's the route that they should continue to go and people forget what they got I had to look up for the show's so they traded the number two pick. To Philadelphia and who moved up and got Carson once and am so last year for that number two pick they got the number eight pick in the first round. They got a third round pick and a fourth round pick in last year's draft they got a first round pick in this years draft in a second round pick in next year's show up at five draft picks and if there's going to be a team out there willing. To park and get rid of 567 picks whatever it's gonna take to get the number one overall selection. And you could get. A stockpile of first and second optics that's the route to go really no matter how much you love additional Watson will. And Cleveland and as being such a young. And talented team at this point you're right you want a acquires many assets as possible first of all. W do when you're doing no service to your former player here you're giving comparisons are basically this kid's gonna come in. And when you give a comparison like that even though it's not out. Apt because of different sports you're implying that he is going to win you championships now I get that he won you a championship in college I get that he got you to a title game. But come on eight you're just putting a heap of pressure on this kid NF Bob Cleveland to be honest with you. I'm gonna be really just to see what direction they they go. I saw Todd makes Shea was basically implying that they're gonna draft miles Garrett with the number one overall pick supposedly absolute stud from Texas Exxon NA NME was really get a surge against UCLA. And hyper has to sonic team yet apple intends to buffalo Buffalo Bills that's right H a misty only second to the 49ers so I can't wait to see what Cleveland decides to do because at some point. Even us out here who aren't diehard Cleveland for Cleveland Browns fans you follow it. You see how bad they are yearning your route and how many mistakes they've made at that position. I'm almost wondering if most of the families is begging him not to draft a quarterback first. At how many have they with Don now. How many consecutive drafts and consecutive quarterbacks and they just absolutely with Don why would you have any confidence and then taking less Lansing and I ruts in new regime a new GM into everything on my type and oil gas and ended this stance I had last year was I looked it did and Jerry Gotham Carson went who were clearly going to be the first and second guys taken in that draft. And you have dashes over either of them home runs is that one of those guys like a Winston. You go get one of those guys and that's gonna change the direction the franchise. I was high on both those guys and it's turned out well for both Tampa and Tennessee bearable sniffing a playoff spot this year. Because of those young quarterback Jeff Carson once in Jerry golfer not those guys from me there's always gonna be a team desperate to make a move and I that Cleveland made the right decision in trading down last year. Because after last year Esther quarterback class who was the best quarterback in that group. Was that press got in the fourth round was the 135 pick you what the forest the fourth round the guys take in front of him. Dirt off Carson once Paxson lynch Christian Hatteberg to Kobe Brusett Cody Kessler and car cup. All those guys are taken before Dak Prescott's so. If you Cleveland don't trust it don't force it because you're gonna be bad for a couple of years. There's no need to take a gamble like that with the number one overall pick also Diane can get a core direct comparison with bacteria did you tell me if he's like Karen Rogers is he Tom Brady easy Donovan McNabb like. Eagle quarterback here. Because even I I don't know that they demo just that c'mon you I need to Michael to the greatest potentially Basil where all time OK so this is give you let the greatest football player tiny thing worse probably would have been what look at Tom Brady. Maria thank you elect comparing him to a position in Italy's quarterback you write the greatest quarterback on drafted you pass non Tom Brady as the second Dominick Joseph Montana I guarantee it now guide our eyes are right way to the Buffalo Bills draft him in the bills mafia buys into the dabble comments watching him watching the team it's gonna be desperate to get that take I think is gonna be the funniest part about the draft. Are the new casinos seem desperate to get I know on this is no word. Baucus ever discuss likely gonna take a quarterback they don't need to move they don't need to move they had a second life was like why would anybody want to move we moving up four. And one of these two guys so no it last year so what did it for charity golf last nobody's gonna move us some Jon why does that in the Eagles traded five draft picks to get a quarterback from North Dakota State last year you're not wrong on that right somebody's got to try get number one in need to give mr. risky or too shall want to make here and he would why our football team there's still so stupid stupid. Phillies traded five picks for Carson once you have once at least look better than guy he would be showed a couple flash aren't giving you that give and I can't remember how many picks the rams ended trading at the number one slot from Tennessee nine yielding the browns would pat would pass that getting all those assets again they did it I want to John Watson shirt just give us this this and that and they connect your significant look at the next three years and have like 31 rounder and 32 runners on top of the fact that there are already got a sucks all they're there late round picks are gonna be high as well. I know people in sports like people that worked in sports in her professional athletes they really like to go against. How you would give opinions are columnists or podcasts knows whatever they love to rail on what you're nodded you don't know. They're wire there's so many incompetent stupid Ron organizations are now foment. And that that doubled the par I still haven't double it would dish on that I want to do is sizing compare him live a man sell. In RG three Vince young and Mario and so he's listed at 6263. Depending on where you checked that basically tells me he's six foot to 61 little undersized. As I was under the Mario has great size that was seven Mario and always had gold form was even though we came from that style of offense he was well built and what is a legit 65 wasn't the strongest guy in the world but you could tell he had some billed to his to his frame and he was a little bit taller the undersized for quarterbacks and it's always he. Right graft scandals calling god to Shawn Watson the next Michael Jordan pay a man that was around during the blazers championship in 77. Net. Covering the team somewhat here creators Portland Tribune he'll stop buying give us his memory. Of game six the win the championship the celebration. In rich city carry acres is next the first whack with a sports update this is dirt and squirt. Guns and it its. Cry welcome back to endurance break here on 1080 the fan I hope you world Wednesday afternoon is going well. We're really excited for tonight is going to be special night at the Mota senator the blazers celebrating the fortieth anniversary of their championship. Against the Los Angeles Lakers a lot of the the teammates or your former teammates are going to be there. On hand free a big special tonight the Mota sinners we dug a good idea bring on carry bigger sport Intermune dot com acts Harry Hager is on Twitter. To give us some insight on that championship team Terry thanks for joining the show its good to have you back on a on what is your fondest memory of the 1977. Portland trailblazers. Well first of all on the just background you guys say I started. At the origin and on 1975. So this team. My second year in in my career as I was a boy there's a chance that your team I didn't cover routine. However I. My first assignment yurigan journal summer what does that do a story of sec round draft at. And Bobby gross and that I told him I remember babble we. Laughter rep there over the years. He was my first year you know and do what you become but he director Porter are keen. Pick your starter starting small or work I I didn't remember they did get abuse and stuff in the playoffs and I was there one or not. They're the final game might do it very rare early edition Monday or Saturday game and we had earlier edition Monday paper tiger here against sort through that. Collateral all of Ramsey at some other people after the game I mean it was just such an exciting team to watch they were. The rest in perfect synergy together really well put together by. Ten minute Jack Ramsay Graham had not had a lot of special coach is pretty well respected that. It never come close to one title had been a general manager would sixers. Many gimmick a coach with a book or great actor seems. When he came here really you know made it mark and the guys they're together one of the most ardent used to watch you ever go Walt. Had he not Gar Heard and could be part on the cart champ players of all time Lucas was enforcer Eric great. A court regards and then purely out of their tiny guys and it would have opt dance loaded and really moving and passing try to sort. We had carriers online columnist Portland Tribune and not obviously they're the only championship team here and in the history of the organization but outside of of that fact and what's the legacy that stands out most to you about that 77 team. You know what when when historians talk about the great pains now investors are great individuals but great change you recorded match and because it's very. You know they are it's a big float so well. Our Greg Johnny Davis while on they've worked but he's our. And engrossed was underrated gross Eric great while pollsters start Jerry. Now and then of course Lucas at the famous. You know spore and match with Darryl Dawkins was in the into it spurred a blatant blatant lost the first two gains. And then won the last four and so I guess you would say that there are resilient group current and accurate at about. You know only one. Think Allen won forty games a year now next year they were that they were barker. The recipient and a one point they were gonna win another trial for sure and Walton daughter ordeal not hurt Eric. And they that this you know they absolutely you know it just blew apart lost first round out of it but. First season and have a supreme it was a dynasty in the making almost. Where were you for game six. I was I was there the more across MI IR so I wrote the the the early edition gene story. Which went out the other parts of the state am I still haven't framed out of my area. Might have downstairs and yard on memory of looking at those guys. She knew there was a much smaller operation than those and those days are you in other words are pure media literally you have a locker room. What should spree ship era those slots are. Well what was the relationship like it's always been in this city for such a long time what was the relationship like between the blazes in the fan base before the title and how did it change after the championship. It changes everything and before it was terrorist. There's a lot of interest but it was not doubt watched the arts and that she's really sparked everything that's runways are ready if he can't actually started inside the mania. And I ran hot roll it was Fredricka not catch phrase has not. I'll never forget doing a story out they parade out outward up a million people. And and you know pupils. June summer Barea and not aspects of memory tradition remember in my mind forever. Did you accidentally partake in any of these champagne in locker room just because it was flying around. They want they want Chara with the media. There is no I didn't get having. Yeah well yeah I do wanna ask you about the parade to just because you got I've seen a lot of images of it in you know you talk to people that were around tearing it and maybe ended at a younger age. It's just one of the cooler things that add up unfortunately for my life I never got to experience. Well was that daylight to watch them just go in downtown in Angola Broadway. Also a story of the Walton rode his bike you know who's dirt biker bicycle and draw is quite civic coliseum where start and then somebody stole it. That they are such good feeling among the city but he Munich commonly submitted my bike back that idea. Absolutely incredible but at. You know I remember scenery and it was hard to see him are so many people like get remembered I think I watched off Broadway. The beer at the Oregon journal of Oregon in building on Jefferson went by there. First people stay they're not businesses you know on certain workforce looking down on. There's just people everywhere it was it was crazy. In an end now that we've we've reached the forty year anniversary in forty years celebration this when you look at the organization and the way they're structured right now. If you're a betting man would you say it's over under ten years until the next championship here. Or I don't know. That that's I I'd say over probably it's so hard to win a title there's thirty teams trying to Latin pregnancy got to. Or three franchises for sure gold since San Antonio this sort of that position themselves. In Antonio doesn't I don't know how ought not premiums written with Greg Popovich and ball state house. That's good young players that are going to be good for awhile so ten years and not hard to say I say I'm not sure worked or what is right now either state. A court decision changes the next couple years and then on the whole lot more. We're talking with Terry Ayers Portland Tribune dot com bacteria yours on Twitter. You you mentioned changes that you think are gonna possibly happen or are you talking like huge wholesale changes potentially breaking up the McCollum Miller tandem what do you mean by that. Well I write I just I guess I would say that I don't see the general manager being in there. Too much longer I mean I don't think he's a Portland guard well maybe I'm wrong. Two you know and and it. The reload twice and that look like it's working now and so you reload again our. I'm sure you know they are still pretty young maybe I'm wrong maybe blurs and a calmer attitude piece is built around. To Nazi a championship contender here any time soon. You mean when you look at hot seats and you mentioned Neil O'Shea had been kind this year obviously is not gone according to plan. I should there be any pressure on Terry Stotts with here there haven't. I don't think so much cereal though you know you you do have to win at times in the you're gonna have to. And an appeal to be nineteen and 27 you know it is under 500. A couple three years in a row on survivors coaches it's too competitive. I think Terry is a good coach. That work and figured out I think right now he's got a little short deck on the front end on the on the par lying then and now. I guess general manager's job as Iran acquires there dirt they can win and you know overall cost in not so or court load. You know it's always nice to celebrate championship for the lakers earned Tom is our party that wishes they had it done this when Philly was in town just to kind of you know commemorate the whole thing. You know it doesn't really inspire her you know it's already a lot of those teams pretty right Allison are great those years. You know I I think is just probably no matter what can we get these you know and it probably get a Paula could make it. Cited at the middle of the season to begin where ago. If you go until lunch and it sounds like before the game and a lot of the former players and and folks involved with the organization will be there is anything you're you're most looking forward whether it's a story you wanna hear questions you wanna ask somebody wanna talk to what are you looking forward to most about the luncheon.

Well they're gonna and a night and make big auto little run here they've got by game homestand with very winnable games so. If they get turnaround to get a little bit more. Out of their front line a little more consistency it and you know so I think they're gonna be eighteen the Google worked out better that they're certainly better than ever and so now. I don't see him not getting. Way to bolster the first I've not seen. Are there we go to creators Portland Tribune dot com bacteria eaters on Twitter. Given a say a flashback to the fortieth anniversary Portland trailblazers championship team. And by the way real quick Carrie I did read the piece last night on and dump Portland State players the I five corridor below that thing was crazy had never really heard the full extent of that story so that was a good piece. Cared and Jon Wertheim who used to live in Portland. Open a little bit of background and on a PC unit at side. In the amber was really well done and I'll get you see that you. Absolutely thanks so much red and enjoy the festivities tonight. It all right good stuff there from Jerry always so quick to hang the phone up and we demo is a quick hang on and that it was awesome to hear him tell stories and and it's one thing that says as younger radio host in this market we obviously didn't get a chance to experience that 1977 championship teams so. With somebody who is around it was in the locker room after her words was in the arena when they won the title is just fun to go down memory lane Bob in Fairview dicing in that he got to go to the trade anybody else to do go to the parade what was that like to beyond Broadway million people in downtown Portland we'll talk about that also bring you the final call from shuns and Britain must burger on the final calls from Portland trail was winning chip chip that's next turn sprayed on the fence. This is durden spray on ten babies those. Well I welcome back in it is 1250 on this hump day edition of dirt and spray home. Really enjoy that stuff from carrying yours just get in the flashback. I've talked to other people too that were around and experienced that just how awesome it was to watch Portland celebrated championship in 1977 imagine 500000. People at a parade in 1970 seven's crazy M what do what that would be like today with a population growth that we've seen in this area yeah for sure they have everything was shut down like I joked yesterday retired military border and I asked what would cause this should the city is shut down Mori a parade or a snowstorm. NE WB of championship rate no doubt has everybody's getting key party you're not gonna wanna go home so we wanted to bring this he were pretty big radio nerds here on the show obviously it's our our job. But I always enjoy old time radio and we found two old calls of this game two different ones. The first is Britain must burger all save shuns for last but this is Brit must bird he was call on the game on tape delay. On CBS this is the the call of the final few seconds of game six. Oh thousand. But I doubt they'll let the guys who. OK okay. It's. Every blog about it over and playing right now they picked the ball invalid target did it wide open probably doing. Yeah. I. OK. Okay. Could this. It. There's Brett -- burger CBS on that final call by the way I also appreciate you re watching the end of that game. I'd seen it a couple times. Just remembering that Philly didn't go to doctor. 4040 point two yeah. I love the hot day two from the teller analysts. Let's Murray's look at storm over there and well okay. I had how does it out on the floor. So there's that call and this is the this is the one thing a lot of people here remember the most this is she guns colony game for the championship same kind of sequence here. I have an elderly and the economy and its. OK. Okay it's. Okay. OK. Okay. Bethany okay. In the it's OK. Okay. Okay. It's all over and it's all over the funny part about the TV telecast to lose that game was taped delayed. Yeah they don't I think it was live I think it was a Sunday afternoon as it is and I do I think they cut away pretty much right after you heard Brent. Being done they cut away to the fun around covered like the chemical over sunny and 77 and a get out of there. Good you know post game show back then I have they were all tape delayed till bird magic. My Rahman. Is some of the game's worse the weeknight games war. On the weekends they would show on live event was a Sunday Saturday and early show on live but out off on the week nights. They were tape delayed 11 PM after your late local news by the way easier to like really ambitious with our poll question today entered spring a surprise you did this I what I take on the poll question yes the poll question actor and spray onto where Ingle vote the poll question is the blazers celebrating the forty year anniversary of the 77 title team over under. Ten years until their next title over under ten years I Kimberly UN so low. Ten years that's a decade doesn't get you a bit of T it's 82% to 18% you would be at a fifty year drought if it takes another tenure I. It's a bad deal it's so hard to gauge with the way. The contracts work I mean the longest contract a player consign his five years. So. Who and what the salary cap the way it is who knows how much money it keeps jumping up not should level off they've got the new TV contracts that should be set for awhile so. After the jump for next year I think it'll settled down and have more moderate increases with inflation and just. Moderate Johnson their revenue. Also is their current LeBron or Jordan or Kobe or Duncan type player right now that's still young can't do open eventually will. Because if there is we've seen that quite yet and we've seen star planning and Anthony Davis kind of guy and his Greek frequent. No I don't well indeed Nell now not a midnight in the category able got to look at somebody and high school right now that's giving up height and that. LeBron guy LeBron can single handedly carry a team like he's he's different anybody might be the only one in the league that can ride at some sand I had and to compare anybody else in Kobe you can debate what does he do without Shaq. Not staff curry without having to get the guys around him drained out clay Thompson major bogey itself. Let LeBron really isn't a class of his on that and same thing with a guy like Tim Duncan who was worth one of the class organizations in all of sports for twenty players when there is one team and I know they're not playing really well this year there is one team that I can't help but think when you say ten years. I think this team control wrinkle in it depending on everything flows with demo gang Minnesota. They got two young studs out Siri young players relevant outside right and I think they young's latest for years to finally start being able to realize how to wind speed playoff series and then they start a. Potential title right you're assuming that they keep the mall where I mean that's the thing these guys got in on the going on to our to overwhelm. While do they wanna stay in Minnesota that's the question me well later in Latinos CEMIG Jacqui I was actually not gonna be that's I think that's going to be an overrated thing when we start getting into the new collective bargaining agreement. Because the money. Is stupid. Different verses staying in going well and it's like substantially higher than what it is. And that's the part of the new collective bargaining agreement it's almost sad though that and I don't blame you for having the reaction that debt like why would you go in such a short amount of time like that's the reaction from blazer fans when you ask can you win a title the next ten years since it's almost like a ridiculous question asked. Only 18% around to optimistic outweighs the I'd take the overturning using the other ones not optimistic I think it's is being released of the landscape of the NBA I mean did you stinks and it's already been forty years you wait another ten that's fifty years were going on what sixteen year drought without even appearing in the NBA finals ram fifteen year drought without even appearing in the NBA finals in the finals appearing in the final like going to the NBA finals. Women since the nineties and one EST between five your job and that's right path twice fighter got not only to later we're out here that I met slate did I miss of those runs I just say it it's unfortunate we can't be more optimistic but on what folks there's not much hope right now on this or. Religious and how about never. Had. Somebody else they think he misses zero on your poll question more like a hundred years. Somebody said you very relieved there should be a third option of the boys won't be in Portland in ten years now Obama on Seattle conspiracy traveling bummer crowd out there today Jackson as a way over ten years and somebody said sad you'll never hear another blaze championship call. There's not a lot of optimism in terms of us winning a title. Regardless how much different do you think it will be if this team had lived up to expectations and say was the fourth seed in the west right now oh and I need different meaning or by you only have we got coming getting a player as a potential in Billings yes I think people Phil black different. Won't discuss if the blazers. What I of the plays a little bit in the second hour CJ McCollum got some great phrase we can talk about that. College football recruiting metrics coming up empty in the Super Bowl or are there ain't. But we'll start our two asking which coach or player that is great sports any sport which coach or player that's great. Are you most tired. Of hearing about 55305. During spring back with more on Portland Sports Radio 1080 the fan.
