Nuggets from Denver

Good morning Jazz fans. Nice, solid win for the Jazz last night, even if it was over the short-handed Nuggets. If you're like me, most of you are tired of hearing what the local hacks who cover the Jazz have to say. So this morning, let's take a look at what our friends from Denver thought about last night's game. It seems a little early in the season to be playing the "moral victory" card, but apparently this guy from the Denver Post didn't think so. His friend from the Rocky Mountain News took the easier route and joined George Karl in blaming the loss on the refs. Maybe they didn't notice the Nuggets forgot how to rebound. And what did the bloggers think? Well after looking at this Nuggets blog, I came away with a new a new understanding of why they call Denver the "Mile High" city.

I watched the jazz game last night (on Colorado televised TV with Nuggs announcers) and the quote of the night was as follows:

"The Jazz led the league in fouls committed last year, 1,970."

"Hold up, hold up, 1,970 is how many times they got CAUGHT, they easily committed 10 times more fouls than that."

And how about George Karl's quote this morning:

"Only in Utah. They violate the lane and they push and shove. They're the best free-throw rebounding team because they cheat the line all the time and we get a call that cost us the game."

Uh. . . George, I'm not sure if you've been watching NBA games in the last, say, twenty years, but there is a lot of pushing. And sometimes even shoving!

Booner, what did the announcers have to say about Harpring?

You know, I was wrong. I didn't hear them say anything about Harpring, much to my surprise.

But the two idiots that call Nuggs games are complete morons. They think the Jazz are the dirtiest team in the history of professional sports. Meanwhile, the Nuggs (AI, Melo, K-Mart, Birdman) are all saints and outstanding citizens.
