EDIT: Nothing from twitter.com/breakingnews as of yet.

I don't know but I love the Portland Trail-Blazers and almost saw Ozzy there once (he moved his show to the Memorial Coliseum).

I hope this isn't one of those "so it begins..." threads.

And so it begins....



But honestly, I hope nothing comes of it, which I bet will. I don't get why a bomber would make a threat, or allow for one to be made, if he was planning something.

Yeah I never understood that in High School either. Um, students, a bomb threat has been called in...sigh, again. Just blow it up then don't tell us, lol. But I guess then they wouldn't get out of school so


EDIT: Still nothing on any news service I'm looking at.

If news reporters are there thats quick!

And someone would probably be reporting it....

Is something up today there?

I mean what are they going to do blow up 7000 roses and make a nice smell?

Plenty of fertiliser I suppose, maybe of the excrement kind to coming from male cows,

Well hoping so anyhow.

UPDATE: The Rose Garden is in lockdown, meaning that no one inside can leave and no one outside can come in. Bomb squad is on scene.



"Women of Faith" conference at the Rose Garden Arena has been evacuated after reports of a suspicious device found in a restroom

Eh, ok, nothing to worry about then. Every single suspicious package turns out to be someones backpack or fannypack they left behind.

Freaky. Hope it was just some security guard's heroin stash *just speculating*

Least they found it and bomb squad's on the scene...

Are you really this lame, Elf?
The Rose Garden is an Arena /Coliseum that the TrailBlazers play at and also hosts other events like concerts etc.
