What a week! Since the last Lindsanity post, our (then) 9-7 Utah Jazz have dropped three of four (one being a brutal one point loss at the hands of the Clippers), and are now dead even in the W/L at 10-10. Hopefully this week’s awesome group of tweets will improve morale and give the team some additional luck going into a tough slate of games. And here they are: This week’s top 10 tweets from Jazz Nation.
10: @monilogue – From one of my favorite Jazz bloggers and fans, Moni knows the order of operations when it comes to Jazz fandom: 1) Jazz 2) Jerry Sloan 3) buttering me up (somehow my brother ended up sitting next to Jerry Sloan at the Jazz/Clips game… with no good stories to show for it).
9: @My_Lo - It was easy to pile on the refs after the Clippers loss, but blaming a giant blown lead on officiating is a bad look, and Mychal (who’s never scared of dishing out unpopular opinions) spat truth here.
Guys, I’m not saying the referees made all the right calls. But the Jazz were up 14 points. — Mychal Lowman (@My_Lo) December 4, 2012
8: @andyblarsen – SAYING THAT… Chauncey-freaking-flopping-Billups. Preach Andy:
According to Wikipedia, I’m supposed to be moving on to bargaining right about now. Nope. Still anger. — Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) December 4, 2012
7: @UTESnJAZZ – First timer to the list, Chris says it like it was/is… because SRSLY Bavetta: Chris, Howard Eisley, and I still haven’t forgiven you.
Screwed by Bavetta like it’s 1998 — Chris M (@UTESnJAZZ) December 4, 2012
6: @5kl – Has anyone figured out the method to Corbin’s rotational madness? I haven’t, and with a Favors injury and back spasms on the Al front, I don’t know if we will any time soon.
In an infinite number of universes, is there one where Corbin voluntarily sits his three best veteran players? — Kris (@5kl) November 30, 2012
5: @tribjazz - Most of the tweets on this list only made me laugh as a defense mechanism against all the Bavetta/Billups pain, but this gem had me cleaning soda off my screen after I read it, which is what vaulted Mr. Oram to the 5th spot as a first week entrant.
Most teams have automatic T-shirt cannons. The Jazz have a slingshot with a wood frame that looks stolen from a Game of Thrones set. — Bill Oram (@tribjazz) December 4, 2012
4: @SaltCityHoops (7) - Like I said last week, it’s all about the subtleties with SaltCityHoops. He knows the idiosyncracies of the Utah Jazz fanbase & organization, and keeps an eye out for interesting microcosms of our unique culture. You say it best when you say nothing at all, Spencer. #FisherLiedGirls

3: @AllThatAmar (5) – Witnessing a player go from a scorching FG% of .727 to a horrific .147 within a week can drive a man to drink.
2: @LostTacoVendor (4) – Because I’m still not over it, and I don’t think anyone could have put it into better words.
1: @DJJazzyJody (2) – And speaking of tweets regarding flops, taking over the top spot this week is Jody, who depresses me to no end with this:
Dead horse worth beating: Instead of being fined for flopping last season, the Warriors were rewarded with a lottery pick and a 10-7 record.
