I have a serious problem. Luckily a support group was established. That support group is you guys.
I can’t believe how much I love the Jazz. I’m 23 years old. My dad was a die hard Jazz fan back when “Stockton to Malone” was the greatest thing to ever happen to Utah sports. I remember back then (yes 15 years ago was a long time for some of us), my dad showed such emotion during Jazz games. I watched pretty much every Jazz game with him (on KJZZ) and could not understand how he could care so much about a game.
These days the tables have turned. My dad still loves the Jazz, and actually takes me to several games a year because his work hooks him up with free tickets, plus I always get him tickets for Christmas and he gets me tickets for Christmas. But that hardcore passion has faded, yet it rubbed off on me something aweful(ly amazing).
I keep my girlfriend and roommate up until about 2 a.m. everytime a Jazz game is on. (I always start the game about an hour after it actually starts so that I can skip commercials. I’m up swearing at the T.V., telling Ty Corbin what to do, saying very inapproprite things to/about the refs. Funny thing is I always end up pausing it for another hour or two so I can pee or drive to Mcdonalds or cook something or take my dog for a walk. My roommate is from Montana so luckily he never had a basketball team to root for, but now he’s a pretty big Jazz fan. In fact he actually bought his first Jazz jersey a couple days ago. It was a Burks road jersey. I was actually kind of pissed because I wanted to buy a new jersey this year and I had thought about what jersey I wanted to buy… First I thought I want to get either a Paul Millsap jersey or an Al Jefferson jersey (btw all of the hate against Big Al over the past while has bummed me out… Yes Dallan and Omar <3 haha) anways I didn’t want to get either of their Jerseys because I’m guessing that one, if not both won’t be playing for the Jazz next year. I already have a Favors jersey, and I dont want a Hayward jersey (idk why). I would actually like a Watson jersey (also been sad about the hatred towards him), so the next one on my list would be Burks… obviously I can’t sit next to someone at a game wearing the same jersey (well I guess I could, two Burks jerseys together would be pretty priceless) so I’m thinking I’ll probably have to go for a Jeremy Evans jersey.
I am way too excited for this season to start. I honestly really hope that the Jazz don’t make any more trades this offseason, because I like the way things are looking right now. My starting line up as of now would be PG: Mo SG: GH SF: Ma PF: Faves and C: Big Al. I think a bench of Foye (Watson/Tins) Burks, GH/Ma/Carrol, Millsap/Evans, Kanter would be just sex. I saw that recent report card and I believe it gave our bench a B-… I don’t agree. I would give our bench an A-.
Anywho I’m sorry to babble, theres just alot of Jazz action on my mind. Here’s a top 10 plays from last year vid from NBA.com, you guys have probably seen it already, but it got me rock hard.
P.s. share your random thoughts.
