For Wednesday: Oden Questionable, Dancers Votable
News travels fast in these parts, even when it's coming from Indiana, so you've probably already heard that Greg Oden has been upgraded to questionable for tomorrow's game against our ol' friend Jarrett Jack and the rest of the Pacers. The two-point win against Indy at the Rose Garden back on March 4 was the first Blazers victory against the Pacers in the last ten tries, so it would certainly be helpful to have all hands on deck for Wednesday's tilt. G.O would undoubtedly like to play in his return to Indiana, so keep your fingers crossed for him, and for us.
Second order of business: It's NBA Dancer Bracket Time! The yearly battle for dancer supremacy started yesterday, with the BlazersDancers drawing a first-round Wednesday matchup with the Houston Rockets PowerDancers. The winner goes advances to take on the winner of the Jazz/Timberwolves matchup. I've seen both of those squads in person, and I can guarantee the BlazerDancers can and would stomp either team into submission.
But they have to beat the Rockets PowerDancers first, a team that made the finals in 2007. They got warmer weather and most of China on their side, but that should be no match for you, the devoted Trail Blazers fan. You can vote here starting first thing tomorrow, but you have to be an NBA All-Access member to cast ballots, so go sign up now if you haven't already.
