I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.
Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.
Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend James!
I got the Lakers/Blazers Game 7 on my list too. What I'll remember most about the game is that the guy that I've shared my Laker tickets with since 1989 brought his 6-year-old son and when it looked like it was over in the 3rd quarter he started crying uncontrollably. I wanted to put tape over his mouth because I felt the same way but I couldn't stand listening to it. Watching his expression change with the comeback was great. Now he's a 14-year-old and I still bug him about it. What people forget about that game was that the Lakers were up 3-1 in that series, and had they lost that game, would have been the NBA's version of the 2004 Yankees. Go Bruins.
