Celebrity sighting

On our flight this afternoon: former Blazer enforcer Mark Bryant, looking good with family in tow. Here's another clue for you all: He was flying out of his current home town.

I told Bryant that he ought to come back to Portland and help Terry Porter buy the Blazers. I said that we missed him. He smiled and said thanks, but he didn't seem too interested in the ownership part.

P.S.: He is a way tall man.

I liked Mark Bryant and the team Portland had at that time: Cliffy, Bryant, Rod Strickland, "Hollywood" James, Dudley... Clyde, Jerome, Buck, Porter for a time. Rookie-future-Sixth-Man, Aaron McKie, was there. Harvey Grant occasionally lit it up big. That was a team that would rip off a 12-16 game winning streak each season. On any given night, and several times a season, they would upset the premier teams in the league. Fans moaned that the team was out of Finals contention, but you had a reason to watch. The Strickland-Drexler combo was one that never really had the chance to realize its potential, due to Clyde's lingering knee injury and off-season Olympics play. However, if you look back at that starting five--Cliff in his prime, Clyde with a few big years ahead, Rod in his prime, Aaron as the 6th Man, Dudley in the middle, and the old guard with some great 20-minute-per-game seasons left in them--you can't help but think that they were broken up a season or two too soon.

Remember the Mark Bryant fan club that was on Sandy Blvd. somewhere?

He's got a much better haircut now.

Seton hall alum, my current employer!
