I was born and raised in California. I became a Jazz fan through my daughter Amanda who whole heartedly believes the Jazz is the hardest working team in the NBA to the end. Though I knew her as a Celtics fan 1st, she quickly grew to respect the Jazz for thier determination in a game even if there was an obvious loss to them coming. She has become so devoted to them I seriously forgot she was a Celtics fan.We went to the March 1st game out here. Really exciting game. LORD willing I may get to take her to a game out there one day.
