Catdome Poster Project: "Uh Oh"

Here it is.  Our 4th and final poster of the collection.  This is our only non-football inspired poster but this one fits on many levels.  The City of Portland has a love affair with the Portland Trailblazers.  Being the only major sports team in the city it's understandable.  The Blazers have a huge and loyal following in Rip City.  The city is still devours all things Blazers but the peak of that passion was during the early 90's when Portland reached the NBA finals in 1990 & 1992.  The Blazers were known for their high energy and toughness led by Clyde Drexler, Terry Porter, Jerome Kersey, Buck Williams, etc.  The City still loves those players and those teams.

"Uh-Oh" is an awesome poster that still hangs in many Portland sports pubs and other sport theme establishments.  It features Buck Williams, Jerome Kersey, and Porter running right at you and that trio evoked many highlight reel moments for the city of Portland.

This was a perfect poster to put a Wildcat spin on as the Wildcat defense has been causing quarters to say "Uh-Oh" on a regular basis.  The 'Cats have led Division III in sacks the past 3 years (49, 47, 63), lead all of NCAA in sacks in 2010 & 2012, and have the most combined sacks in all of the NCAA over the past three years.  In 2013 I'm fully expecting for the 'Cats to continue that pace...."Uh-Oh"

Yep, no doubt about it. Flight 6 and Oh, oh...Linfield's version are both better than the originals.
