Point guard? The Jazz don't need no stinkin' point guard

< Previous Page


The Toyota Center was dead tonight. Announced attendance was 15,729 of 18,043, but it felt a few thousand short of that. Houston isn't even close to the level of Philadelphia, Washington, Phoenix (lately), New Orleans, Detroit, Atlanta when it comes to paltry attendance, so I can't ding them too hard for that. It just makes you appreciate the places where fans do show up that much more. Yes, Salt Lake City — you little mountain pocket of basketball fiends — I am talking to you. Well done.

Not flying to San Antonio tomorrow. Instead, I'm taking alternate transit. That's right: the open road, pavement straight ahead, America to the sides. Hope the loyal ol' jalopy (Mazda 6, provided by Hertz) doesn't fail me now. But seriously, anybody have a breakfast recommendation along Interstate 10 for a lonely travelin' man? Or a place I can grab a Merle Haggard CD?


It's not often my predecessor weighs in on the Jazz, so when he does, I feel compelled to share.
