There are certain times of the year that I look forward to. I don’t cringe at some of these things as some other people do. What are they? Well they are my signs it’s Jazz season.
1) Back to school. Ahh! That time when parents are spending a bundle to get their kids new school gear. Such as clothes, paper, pencils, notebooks, etc. Kids hate going to school and have no desire to see this time of the year come around. That whole “sleeping all day and doing whatever I want” is kind of an appealing life isn’t it? I don’t hate this time at all. As a matter of fact I look forward to it. When people ask me (since I’m in college) “Are you excited for school to start?” I reply with an “Oh YEAH!” They probably think I’m excited for actual school, but they’re way off. I’m always excited because it’s my first sign of Jazz season.
2) What’s another sign? Easy, when it’s hunting season. There may be Jazz fans out there that live in the city in a different state that never get the opportunity to hunt. While people are spending money on elk and deer calls and all that stuff, new strings for bows and bullets, etc. I’m saving up my money for the tickets to the very first game of the season. Although I must admit I do enjoy hunting, but my passion is the Jazz. Whenever I’m fishing or just chilling my thoughts turn often to the Jazz and as I see all the hunters on their four-wheelers passing by, my heart starts pounding and my mind races, as I think of all the happy memories I will make this next season.
3) It’s been cold outside because of rain coming to Utah. My motto has always been: ”When you see your breath in the air, Jazz season is here!” What a joyous thought as I was walking down a sidewalk during an evening this week I took a deep breath and I saw a glimpse! A glimpse of my breath! I started sending text messages and doing a dance realizing that it’s FINALLY HERE! I am going to the game tomorrow, well later tonight for the first preseason game. All I can say is it’s here, it’s finally here! Life is not as bueno without MY UTAH JAZZ!
