This article shares views of sports fans on developments related to sports in the U.S. which have been posted on various Weblogs. One fan is of the view that the basketball team Portland Trail Blazers is one of the worst teams in the Western Conference. Yet the fan finds that he is pretty happy because it's been a few months since any of them has acted like an idiot on the court or in a press conference or had any disruptive off-court issues. Another fan feels that while the National Hockey League was about to get a shot in the arm with the Olympics, it got a snub.
