Why isn't this man on the Jazz?

I was once on a small path overlooking the Mediterranean sea when I saw two girls who looked like they were from Utah. "I'll bet they're from Utah," I thought. How did I know? There were clues, such as the bleached blond hair, the modest-yet-sort-of-skanky fashion sense, and the matching BYU/Jerusalem backpacks, but mostly it was just a gut feeling honed over decades of studiously observing Utah girls.

I get the same sort of feeling when I watch Battier: "I'll bet he's on the Jazz." He's not really athletic, he plays hard, he has a reasonable contract - overall, an efficient cog in the wheel. He's almost like every small forward that has ever played for the Jazz, except that he can shoot.

And, from the looks of things, has a wife who is as tall and broad-shouldered as he is. Can we sign her to back up Boozer?

Also, did you see the exciting mid-third quarter feature piece on the Rockets recent charity ball? There was Shane posing with George H.W. Bush! You KNOW those types of Republican feelings would go over well in Utah.

Why not acquire both Battier and Brand? Then the Jazz could claim a monopoly on successful NBA players from Duke
