I’m a Jazz fan living in San Antonio, TX! You want to talk about being behind enemy lines, other than L.A., I don’t think it gets much worse. The reactions to me wearing my Jazz gear around town vary from “pfft, whatever” sort of ambivelence when the Spurs are hot to downright hostility when the Spurs are looking vulnerable.
I grew in SLC and starting going to Jazz games with my dad when the team moved from New Orleans. Jazz basketball is like breathing.
