So long...

The Jazz and I broke up on Friday night. It was abrupt, and unexpected. I wasn't looking forward to it, but I guess it had to be. This whole season I have pretty much based my nights off of when a Jazz game was on. Every other night or so I had plans with the TV to watch the Jazz game. But now it is over. The good news is I think we will be getting back together in November.

The last couple seasons I have found a renewed faith in the Utah Jazz. The beginning of this decade was dismal, and there seemed to be no light at the end of the tunnel. The Jazz had some of their worst seasons ever, and weren't even playoff contenders. Throughout the decade and with draft picks and trades, the Jazz have become an incredible team to watch. The team they have right now is incredible. I couldn't say the same when Girichek was on the team, but ever since the Girichek/Korver trade, they have seen awesome success. Sadly that success ended it's run on Friday night, therefore ending my basketball season (somewhat). I'll still watch, and hope for a Lakers-Celtics series, but any emotion I had invested in the playoffs is gone. It was a great season for me. I watched many games at my parents house, with my father-in-law, with my friends, with Shara, or even by myself standing up and throwing things at the T.V. I was able to go to 4 games this season, with my brother-in-law, Shara, my mom and my father-in-law, many more games than I had previously anticipated. (Thanks again to anyone who hooked me up with tickets! Pretty much that goes to Meridian and Shara) It was a good season, but I'm really bummed its over.

My Top 5

So this last weekend Shara and I saw Iron Man. Which made Shara fall in love with Robert Downey Jr. and on the way home started a discussion on our "Top 5" list . So we decided to pick our 5 and post them to see what others think about our choices. This is a running top 5 that has changed about 12 times since Shara told me to post it, but I think I'll stick with this list for now. You can check out Shara's top gentlemen on her blog page here. And in case you are wondering, the answer is: YES. Shara knows that if any of these Top 5 ever showed up in my world, I would make-out with all of them. Shara understands. I would equally give her permission to make out with her top 5. Why not, life is short!

Behold the list...

1. Sophia Bush - I went for the surprise, I didn't think I would put her first, but I think I'm-a stick with it. She's really the only reason I watch One Tree Hill these days.

2. Jessica Alba - I'm willing to bet 95% of the American Male population would have Jessica in their top 5.

3. Scarlett Johansson - Not only is she gorgeous, but she is hilarious. If you've ever seen her on SNL, you'll agree. "Mawble Colmuns! Look at this one, Look at that one, Look at this one..."

4. Brittany Snow - After seeing John Tucker Must Die that pretty much sealed the deal.

5. Stacy Keibler - Shara even agrees with me that she's hot. Enough said.

So what do you think? Are we weird? Are we dumb? Did we get you thinking about this?
I think everyone secretly has a running list like this in their heads, but are too scared too admit it, let alone post it on a BLOG.

Ween-O-Rama 10!!

Saturday May 10th was the 10th annual Ween-O-Rama. My buddies started doing this after we graduated high school to prolong the summer parties we had and was just another great excuse to get a big number of us together and roast hot dogs. It has since grown since it's humble beginnings to something looked forward to around this time of year and new traditions and events are held every year, while still holding true to the past events and traditions. This year introduced the hot dog eating contest, which no looking back on it, I don't know why we haven't done this sooner than now. Shara was asked to be a field reporter for this event and she was super great at it. She got all into it and asked the serious and awesome questions.

This is a great event that a lot of hard work is put into by my friends and it always turns out great and it's always good to see everyone that shows up.

Jazz v. Rockets Game 6

A couple of Friday's ago Shara ended up working for ESPN. It was an awesome opportunity for her and she was able to work closely with a producer and a reporter and get to see a lot of the behind the scenes of an ESPN broadcast. This also benefited ME! She was hooked up with two tickets to Game 6 versus Houston. It was an awesome game! My father-in-law Wayne went along with me. He was really excited, so excited that we ended up arriving at Energy Solutions Arena 75 minutes before tip-off! I have pictures to prove it. Shara was able to take me behind the scenes as well during half time, and we were able to see how ESPN broadcasts a game. It's incredible all the equipment and personnel that is involved to broadcast a nationally televised game. Very cool. Thanks again to her and to the ESPN producer who hooked us up with tickets!
