Annoying things about watching Utah basketball

  1. Rudest fans in the league. Seriously, the analysts even commented on it when in game 5 a fan was ejected from the game (and then allowed to return for some reason after the half), supposedly for using racial epithets against the Rockets’ players.
  2. As a corollary to the above, there’s apparently one fan who has some kind of bell that he or she rings, and the TV audio picks it up very clearly. So. Annoying.
  3. Games don’t start until 9:30, even in the Central time zone, so they don’t end until around midnight.
  4. Oh, yeah: ending the Rockets’ season two years in a row.

Update: seeing the head-to-head match-up analysis of the Jazz vs. the Lakers at the end of the game, I asked Dan, “Who do you root for there?” His response: “Earthquake.”

    There’s no way you can root for the Jazz!! You can root for the Lakers to lose in the conference finals but you have to root for them to beat the Jazz! We hate the Jazz!!

    No, I agree. Hence rooting for the earthquake. It’s sad, really, because I had to stop actively rooting for the Spurs after they turned into absolute thugs in the series against the Suns last year. So, as has always been the case, I don’t care about the East, other than the Pistons, and now I don’t care about the West either.
