The Maine Red Claws are a D-League basketball team, with developmental players from the Boston Celtics and the Charlotte Bobcats. Tonight, I'm going to be taking in my first game, compliments of my brother. I'm looking forward to it. I've heard a lot about the cheerleaders, the BIG screen, the in-between action entertainment, the fans really getting into it and oh ya, the skilled players too. From all reports, it's top notch, quality basketball on the floor at the Expo. The Pirates on the ice, Seadogs on the diamond and now the Red Claws on the Portland parquet all have found their nitch in this great 'little city' by the bay.
