Look where I got to go on St. Patrick's Day! Tip-off and First Quarter

Go, LaMarcus Aldridge! Go, Blazers!

I always want LaMarcus right here, in the driver's seat.

What happens in a split second totally amazes me. Somehow--I think they're born knowing how--LaMarcus knows exactly when to pivot and shoot. He's just about there in this shot.

LaMarcus shoots! To tell you the truth, I cannot remember if it went in or not. So much happened so quickly, and I am just glad that I got this shot. Who would have ever dreamed that he had jumped up enough to cause his uniform shorts to blossom like that on his way down? Love that serendipity!

I adore Andre Miller; he's a skilled, determined competitor. Here he's certain of his shot--you can just see the ball in the net, there at the bottom rim of the backboard.

Andre's on the way! He'll either shoot or pass--there's very little that the other team can do about him.

Rudy Fernandez ran off the court after the ball. It took him a few seconds to get turned around and headed back the other way. It also took that man in the corner whose head you cannot see--just his blue-jeaned legs and left arm are visible--a few more seconds to get upright again. Seems like the man in the black shirt is about to help him.

Rudy for three!

I know that three-pointer was good! Rudy flashes the three goggles!

End of the first quarter, Blazers 37, Cavaliers 12.

Tomorrow, the second quarter.

Hi Lynette! Nice to hear from you...and I'm very impressed by your action shots! You could be Portland's official photographer! Sounds like you had a great time.

Hi, Lynette!
Nice shots. I went to one BB game this year. . .UNLV vs Air Force during the conference. . . not my favorite sport, but I do enjoy going to live games.

PS I like your St. Patrick's Day hat. :-)

I don't claim to be a b-ball fan, but you have some great shots here.
