This just in from the greatest Blazers blog on the planet:

"We want fans to wear red, make noise and make the Rose Garden intimidating for visitors," Trail Blazers President Larry Miller said. "Our players feed off of that crowd energy, so it is a goal of ours to create the best home court advantage in the NBA."

This is for tonight's home opener against San Antonio, by the way. This truly is terrible news for those of us who already had a costume planned (erotic Trig Palin--What? Too soon?), but we'll manage.

Do like Darius, wear red tonight for Rip City. Let's show the nationally televised audience that Portland knows how to color coordinate.
