File1, 2, & 3 for crodgers:



Plug me in
I'm alive tonight
Out on the streets again
Turn me on
I'm hot to stop
Something you'll never forget
Take my fist
Break down walls
I'm on the top tonight

No no
You better turn me loose
You better set me free
'Cause I'm hot young running free
A little bit better than I used to be

'Cause I'm alive
Live wire
'Cause I'm alive
I'm a live wire
'Cause I'm alive
Live wire
'Cause I'm alive
I'm a live wire


Life is crazy
And totally unpredictable...
It's going to push you over,
Kick you while you're down,
And hit you when you try to get back up.
Not everything can beat you.
Things are going to change you.
But you get to choose which ones you let change you.
Listen to your heart,
Follow your dreams,
And let no one tell you what you're capable of.
Push the limits,
Bend the rules,
And enjoy every minute of it.
Laugh at everything.
Live for as long as you can.
Love all,
But trust none.
Believe in yourself,
And never lose faith in others.
Settle for nothing but only the best,
And give 110% in everything you do.
Take risks,
Live on the edge,
Yet stay safe,
And cherish every moment of it.
Life is a gift.
Appreciate all the rewards,
And jump on every opportunity.
Not everyone's going to lvoe you,
But who needs them anyway?
Challenge everything,
And fight for what you believe.
Bakc down to nothing,
But give in to the little things in life,
After all, that is what makes you.
Forget the unnecessary,
But remember everything.
Bring it with you everywhere you go.
Learn something new,
And appreciate criticism.
Hate nothing,
But dislike what you want.
Never forget where you came from,
And always remember where you are going.
Live life to its fullest,
And have a reason for everything,
Even if it's totally insane.
Find your purpose in life,
And live it!


What if Portland had taken Kevin Durant over Greg Oden?

They become the fledgling Western Converence juggarnaut of the 2010s (not
Oklahoma City); Portland becomes a legitimate 2010 destination for Lebron;
any successfully unconventional decision would be called "a Pritchard";
and everyone in Portland would be so perpetually happy that it would never
rain there again. Instead, we have to start bracing for the 2029 or 2030
Draft, when Portland wins another lottery and finds itself stressing
between Sure Thing Potential Superstar Scorer X over Possibly Fragile
Franchise Center X as everyone else wonders, "Wait a second, we're doing
this again?" One of these generations, the Blazers will get it right.
