Why does the off season seem to drag on for such a long time. Even with all of the fun things that summer has to offer (i.e., wakeboarding, camping, hiking, etc.) I find myself longing for cold winter nights where I’m snuggled up to nothing other than my old Jazz blanket (gold and yellow, old logo, older than I am) watching the Jazz. You can’t get enough Utah Jazz! I usually go through a period of denial when they get eliminated from the playoffs that lasts about a month. I don’t really want to think or talk about it. However, once I have passed that stage, I’m back on track. I start a countdown and take in whatever I can during the off season to quench my thirst, so to speak.
I think other Jazz fans would be interested in hearing my perspective. I follow the Jazz through and through. I follow what’s going on off and on the court. I listen to what the experts are saying on both the national and the local level. I’ve played and coached basketball and although it’s only been at the high school level, I feel that beings an interesting dynamic to the game, having been in the game and knowing how it is to be on the floor. I’m not afraid to say what I think is wrong with the Jazz. If they’re not playing well, I’ll be the first to point that out. Not only do I follow the Jazz, but I follow the NBA as a whole and I think that’s vital to giving valuable insight on a game to game basis. The bottom line is that I have a sincere and genuine passion for the Utah Jazz. I’ve been going to games since I was a little guy and I love it. I love being around it and I love sharing it. I hope to share that passion and help others to become as passionate as I am.
