Wow – oh – wow.
Utah is in the playoffs. Did I already say that on another post? If so, sorry. But I’m still not used to the idea of my Jazz – the little team that could – getting linked to such teams as OKC, Dallas and LA. Sure we had our runs in the past with D-Will and the gang, but this year feels different. Newer. Fresher. More exciting. Perhaps because I actually like these Jazzmen … Admit it, they’re fun to root for!
We’ll get the chance come Sunday, when Utah kicks off its first round match-up against San Antonio at the
Alamodome, er, AT&T Center in Texas.
