My favorite Monday

I'm playing along with Tib again today. The My Favorite Monday theme today is: favorite sports team. This is easy for me - my favorite team, hands down is the Utah Jazz. I love me some NBA. My hubby and I DVR pretty much every game - we rarely miss them. Did anyone happen to catch the game yesterday? Game 4 between the Jazz and the Kobes, er, LA Lakers? Well, just in case you missed it, the Jazz beat the Lakers in overtime. It was a fantastic game. I was very proud of "the boys" - my boys. Ha ha ha.

I've loved the Jazz since I was a little girl, and my dad took me too a game. Of course back then, Adrian Dantly was the star - even before Stockton and Malone.
I did love the "Stockton to Malone" era as well. I remember that summer in college when the Jazz almost beat the Bulls in game 7 of the finals.

Oh yeah - picking my favorite team was a piece of cake. Narrowing down my favorite player isn't quite so simple. I have several favs this season. But of course Deron Williams stands out because he rocks. He's amazing.

And then of course there is their newest player, Kyle Korver who I also expect great things from. And he gets my vote for "Best Hair in the NBA". He's such a cutie!

Kyle Korver is the big talk around here. All the guys ask us gals if we think he is hot...because they think he is very attractive. haha. I love man love.

So the game yesterday. I actually watched part of it and I now have to change the sign in my cube to "Lakers in 6" instead of "Lakers in 5". I don't know what Kobe's injury will do for game five, but I just don't think the Jazz can win in the Staples Center. I don't mind cheering for the Jazz, but I kind of have to cheer for the Lakers by default.

I haven't even had time to watch any of the playoffs, sad but true. That Kyle Korver is a looker, maybe I will have to watch a little more Jazz!

My brother in law was texting to find out the scores during church. It sounds like it was a great game.

Great post! I loved the Stockton to Malone era! Those were the days ;)

Who is this Korver guy? Looks like I need to start watching the Jazz again!

Oh my gosh--the game yesterday was so exciting. My husband was really upset that it was at 1:30pm. We have church at 1pm. Luckily, we were able to catch the last 2 minutes of the fourth quarter, and then overtime. Amazing! Can't wait for game 5 on Wed. How 'bout Boozer's rebounds in game 4? Wow.

this was one that i didn't play along with tib, because it would have been a blank post with crickets chirping in the background.
