We are Utah Jazz!
I would imagine if it hasn’t happened yet, that sometime in the next 24 hours Ty Corbin will get a text message from John Stockton with a congratulations and a rotary phone call from Jerry Sloan sharing a similar message. Both messages will be short, simple and to the point.
I would also imagine that ten years from now there might be 200,000 people that claim they attended the Playoff Play in game. The folklore behind last night's game will get bigger and “The Hug 2” t-shirt will be a keepsake. @monilogue
Over the past 65 games, Jazz fans from all walks of life have had and shared their opinions and frustrations; some have been right and some have been wrong. We have analyzed coaching decisions, starting rotations, finishing rotations, last second passes, substitution patterns, management styles, missed assignments, ownerships quarrels, fan’s fanhood, and analyzed statistics and matchups beyond reproach.
Some of us wanted the playoffs, some of us wanted draft picks, some of us wanted trades, and others wanted coaches fired or management changed. And yet, some of us were content with the ride. That is all behind us now.
Over the passed six months many people have gotten on and off the Utah Jazz bandwagon. Either way, we welcome you back. We welcome you back to tradition. We welcome you back to optimism. We welcome you back to the Utah Jazz.
We do not need apologies, excuses, or reasons for why you left. We also don’t need gloating and bragging as to remind us that you have been here the entire time. We need your voice and your optimism to support your playoff bound Utah Jazz team.
After last night’s win, it is time to set all of our opinions aside for the greater good of a team and a franchise that is showing progress.
Making the playoffs shows progress.
Progress equals success.
This weekend we can root for the Utah Jazz.
We can also root for ourselves, because We are Utah Jazz.
Last night's thoughts from around the city.
