Game 75 vs. WAS: …last wheel falling off the bus…

March 29, 2011

Five things:

One. Watching Jazz games is like watching a foreign film…with no subtitles…starring some random Burlesque guys. I have no idea what’s going on or what genre it is. I can’t tell if there’s a plot. Is it a comedy? Is it farce? Is this supposed to be serious? I can’t understand how this team is so bad.

Two. When Big Al came to Utah, he said he was excited for three reasons: 1) Jerry; 2) Deron; 3) the fans. He’s already lost the first two. Thanks largely to the work of one Jazz beat writer in particular, it seems he’s on his way to losing the third as well.

I’ve been complaining for a while now about how Jazz fans always need someone to hate. After tonight, Al has officially replaced Raja as the scapegoat. For the record, I don’t have a problem with him not talking to the media after a couple of straight losses. I especially don’t have a problem with him not talking to the media if he’s read or heard the unobjective things that the media (again, one person in particular) has written about him in recent days.

Three. Derrick Favors is the future. That is all.

Four. Ty Corbin said yesterday that he would not “go young with the first unit or make a drastic overhaul because he does not want his team to think that he has surrendered the season.” (trib)

In the fourth quarter and overtime today, I thought to myself that I would think he had given up if he brought the vets back in. After the game, Ty said that he would be reassessing the rotations in light of how the young guys played. Guess we should get used to this kind of not-stability. (Yes I know there is such a word as “instability” but I don’t think we’re unstable. We’re just not stable, if that makes sense.)

Five. The Jazz lost to the Wizards, who had won only one road game so far this season. Come the F on. Also, 10-21 FT shooting? Come the F on.

Six. Spur-of-the-moment sixth thing: I miss Jerry, Phil, and Larry so, so much.

Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night
** Boler: One of his many sweet spots as he tries to bang against Yi.
** Boler: Oh baby, in and out!
** Boler: Millsap. Wide open. Couldn’t hit it.
** Boler: Ty Corbin: He’s going young. He’s going fast. He’s going long.

    Hilarious post, thank you. And also props on calling out that idiot Brian Smith. He’s determined to stir up shit even when there is none. Nice “reporting,” Brian.

    I was impressed with the “youngs” last night. I was also impressed with the support our “youngs” got from the very shallow bench.
    There was no one on the bench; I wanted to walk down there and sit with the team, just so it looked like we had options… and to snuggle. Where was Fes?
    As T-Bay said post game, “The fans sucked the energy out of the arena” It was terrible… until near the end of the 4th when the lazy A*# fans decided to “get in the game”. I was screaming and yelling the whole game (except while I was enjoying my Farrs Yogurt, at the start of the 3rd). Neighboring fans were looking at me like I was crazy. The upper bowl was mostly supportive, as per the usual.
    I am pass the point of feeling, I can’t even cry. My new goal is to enjoy the small moments; like a Favors dunk, or Jeremy/Ronnie/Earl coming out of no where for the rebound, or a 3 point shot that goes down, and most importantly a good game for our FUTURE (Favors, Hey Hey Hey, Jeremy, and Fes every team needs a class clown)

    I feel like Smith has gotten out of hand lately. I can understand if he has some issue with Al or maybe they just don’t like each other, but it is not his job to editorialize or write about his personal opinions. Everything he’s written in the past week seems to be based on some agenda. He called Al “totally unprofessional,” but where’s his professionalism as a reporter?

    Fes went home with a migraine before the game. It’s sad but I think we’ve lost our legendary home court advantage. Every single game fans are arriving so late you’d think it was Miami. Go Jazzy Girl for bucking the trend! I’m with you; I’m just enjoying the highlight moments and trying not to have expectations.
