End. Of. Story.
This tweet, no doubt, will not sit well with Jeremy, who just posted this comment on another blog entry (P.S. I’m the “joker” he’s referring to):
I love the fact that the joker who wrote this article had the audacity to say “but there certainly has been plenty of Jazz in Utah since the Big Easy let its NBA team skedaddle out of town.”
We LET them skedaddle? LET THEM?! What a crock!
The only reason the Jazz left Louisiana was because the new owner was a Utah native and didn’t want to run his new play thing (the team) from outside his home state. As a native Louisianian I ask Utah to just remove yourself emotionally for a second. There is not 1 free thinking person who will side with you on this issue. We New Orlenians want to cling to that name because it means something to us. You folks want to cling to it because it’s “your oxymoron”. Your state, city & culture could be so much better represented by making a change. I hope your team management feels the same way.
The Utah Jazz probably should have renamed their team 33 years ago. But that didn’t happen. It’s way too late now. Get over it, New Orleans.
