In short, things have suddenly gotten a lot more interesting around here, and in a good way. Demanding the pound of flesh that will never be exacted is a self-destructive attitude. You yourself have argued that this roster is more intriguing than it has performed thus far this season. Well, McHale agrees with you--and absolutely needs to demonstrate that it is so. Those who wanted Wittman out as coach and McHale out as the guiding force behind the franchise have pretty much had their wishes granted. Savor such small rewards and consider that tonight's game is the beginning of a new phase.
To mangle an old adage, even blind squirrel zombies find squirrel brains every once and a while and this recent move does indeed represent something of a new beginning. It may even bring about some positive changes. They are who they are and I should act accordingly. Our readers know exactly how we feel about the front office and there's no sense in going on and on about it...especially when the negativity becomes a tad overwhelming.
Soooooo...here's hoping for some up-tempo zombie ball. Here's hoping that McHale is the business as coach. Tonight's game against the Jazz should feature the squad's biggest effort of the year and with D-Will in town, we'll also get to see one of the best players in the league. This week will also feature our After 20 post as well as the first Canis Draft Board post since the start of the season. Enjoy the game and try not to think about the bad zombies.
PS: It's also Jerry Sloan's 20th anniversary as head coach of the Jazz. You can get your Utah fix at our sister site SLC Dunk.
