IT'S ON!!!

Let's rock and roll, and hope Chilly does more damage to Portland than his index finger.

Expect the Rip City crowd to be loud and emotions to be high. Hopefully, the Suns will respond to Portland's initial fight and stand toe-to-toe. Sure the team is a work in progress, but you can fight hard while working!

Stand and be counted, Suns!

Rise, Phoenix! Soar across the court and breathe fear into the hearts and minds of the infidels!

Every second, every possession!

And when its over, let the opponent shake their heads in wonder at how they lost (again) to a less talented, less vaunted Suns team that just won't go away.

We are all witnesses to the first day of the 7th year of the Modern Nashian Age!
