The end of a sports season (or two), the beginning of another two, and Portland food

Scattershot post today:

First, as everyone knows, we’re about to the end of the Blazers season with tomorrow night’s home game against Golden State. I’m guessing we lose, since we’re missing Zach, LaMarcus, Brandon and Joel P., but we’ll have pulled 32 wins in a season where 35 at full strength was not only reasonable, but attainable, and all-in-all there was a definite improvement.

As the off-season approaches, there are a few items of business to take care of. The Blazers need to hire a new president (Casey Hohldal at the O’s BlazerBlog is all over this topic). They need to have a good draft, and make some trades (Dave at BlazersEdge discusses this). Kerry Eggers at the Trib covers many of the items on the list. (Thanks, Casey, for the link).

Meanwhile, the Lumberjax just finished their season. Sadly, I didn’t make any of the games, though I well and truly planned to. Oh, well, there’s always next year.

The Portland Beavers season is upon us, though, and with my current job I actually have the prospect of taking in a couple of Businessman’s Specials. And Timber time is here, too, though I personally don’t find that quite so exciting.

In all of that, we are out of the time of year where I follow sports in earnest. I’m a football and basketball guy. I’ve tried to be the Metroblog Jack-of-all-Sports, but despite having posted about all sorts, including Roller Derby, I’m predicting a slow sports season for myself, probably until the NBA draft.

Currently, I’m focussing on more full-filling subjects. Like food. And restaurants. You can read my thoughts on those over on the new Portland Restaurant Reviews by Regular Folks (wordy, I know) site.

I imagine here I’ll be switching to snarking on local news and politics and continuing to bitch and moan about MetroFi until I can establish a reliable connection with the pole around the corner…
