I am the Official Ambassador to Dream Shake from Blazer's Edge and I would like to extend a very warm welcome to The Dream Shake - The Best Houston Rockets Blog. When Dave (the Blogger-in-Chief at Blazer's Edge) announced that he want BEdgers (it's what we call ourselves) to volunteer to be ambassadors to the other SBNation blogs I was most unhappy to find that there wasn't one for the Rockets (yet). But I thought I would look to see if there was a blog that might be acceptable to Dave in spite of their not belonging to SBNation. Upon visiting The Dream Shake, I was elated to find an announcement that your blog would soon join SBNation. I immediately reqested the opportunity to be the Official Ambassador to Dream Shake from Blazer's Edge, and Dave granted me this privilege.
I have long admired the Houston Rockets franchise as they seem to always be genuine contenders for an NBA Championship and have succeeded twice. There is also the fact one of the greatest Blazers of all time (Clyde Drexler) was unable to acquire a ring until he joined the Rockets. More currently the Rockets have acquired former Oregon Duck Point Guard Aaron Brooks, a player that I really like, and I hope will be successful as a Houston Rocket. You also have an other former Blazer, Von Wafer (we called him Baron Von Wafer) who was never really given much of a chance to do much as a Blazer, but seemed like he had some potential to be a solid role player if given a chance to really learn a system and was given some significant playing time.
I also wanted you all to know that I and many others at Blazer's Edge share your hatred of the Utah Jazz. There is not enough room in a single fanpost for me to expound upon length, breadth and depth of this hatred. The only other team that inspires this much is the Flakers. Don't even get me started on that topic.
I am really hoping that during the 2008-2009 season that some level of sportsman like camaraderie can develop between Dream Shake and Blazer's Edge that will enhance everyone's enjoyment of the coming NBA season. If there is anything that I can do to help the members of Dream Shake feel more at home in SBNation, please feel free to post requests either here or over at Blazer's Edge. I will be visiting here on most days to keep up on all the latest important Rockets news. I will also be establishing a separate email account specifically for the purpose of facilitating communication with your members.
Oh, and one more thing - Hakeem the Dream really does OWN Shaq! (also known as fatass) Always Has - Always Will!
