Well, before we do anything, let me apologize. It’s been a while since the last segment of the #LindList. The holidays, flu, hospital, and general craziness that surround the new year are to blame, but I’m back and ready for action. This week’s tweets are going to be a spattering from the past month. So much has happened, that I’m not even going to attempt a theme… I’m just gonna drop my favorites on you. As a bonus, we’re going to give a TOP 15, so hang on and enjoy.
But before we get started… This:
No Jazz games until Saturday?? What am I going to do with myself until then?

I hear you, Jeff Ross. I hear you. Now… ON WITH THE SHOW!
15:@UTESnJAZZ – The Jazz had some brutal losses over the last month. None worse than than December 19th’s outing against the Pacers. A night that got so bad it made Mayan jokes funny for a few minutes.
I wish the Mayans would have made the world end a few days earlier so I wouldn’t have had to watch this game. — Chris M (@UTESnJAZZ) December 20, 2012
14: @BeardedMangus - Did I say “none worse?” Utah at Phoenix sure felt worse. Aside from Mayan jokes, there’s very few things as terrible to watch than ugly basketball (just ask UofU Men’s Basketball fans… ZING!!).
13: @Clintonite33 - As bad as things got during the last month, there were a few bright spots. One of them came in December at ESA against the Spurs. Tim Duncan came out swinging, but Mo Williams & the Jazz pulled it off, and subsequently…
The Jazz broke the Spurs, huh? They’re about to lose 4 of 5 since the loss to Utah.

12: @DavidJSmith1232 - I completely missed David’s origination of this hashtag, but no one could escape the ripple effects of it. Jazz fans had an absolute heyday with it as the Jazz crumbled down the stretch in Atlanta.
TIme to take my Jazz frustrations out in the perfect setting: Church ball! #SC20atSp9

11: @sluhm - The “Big East.”
If the NBA was college football, Jazz could hope for realignment/invitation to join the Eastern Conference … — Steve Luhm (@sluhm) December 19, 2012
10: @5kl - Presented without comment.
9: @monilogue - As if Jazz fans needed another reason to whine about minutes. Thanks for this, Moni.
Yeah, I know, it’s plus-minus.But the plus-minus from last night is still pretty funny. twitter.com/monilogue/stat…

8:@da_breezman - But seriously… that Indiana game was terrible.
If I wasn’t already a drunk, this game would drive me to drinking…. #UTAatIND

7: @the20thmaine – Another bright spot in the sea of awful Jazz basketball that was the past month was the Miami game.
6: @jazzhype - Speaking of Miami and Hayward’s hypothetical trash talk (that’s what we were talking about, right?)…
“I’ve faced teenaged Koreans who are infinitely more intimidating than you Mr. Allen.” — Gordon Hayward, trash talking politely. — Justin Davies (@jazzhype) January 15, 2013
5: @saltcityhoops - Root Sports, everybody! Give ‘em a hand.
4: @tribjazz - Have I mentioned how terrible the Indiana game was yet?
Women on kiss cam playing better defense than… Ah, screw it. You get the point. Jazz down 86-59.
— Bill Oram (@tribjazz) December 20, 2012
3: @PaigeSauer - Gordon Hayward can never leave Salt Lake. Ever. What will we do without tweets like this?
— Paige Sauer (@PaigeSauer) January 6, 2013
2: @DJJazzyJody - [Insert joke about how horrific the Indiana game was... again. Because it was beyond terrible, and this tweet is funnier than anything I can produce right now.]
The Jazz trimmed the Pacers’ lead to 28 points, forcing Indiana coach Frank Vogel to call a timeout. #UTAatIND
— Jody Genessy (@DJJazzyJody) December 20, 2012
1: @LostTacoVendor - Never mind. There ARE a couple themes in this week’s power rankings.
Isn’t the biggest question tonight whether Hayward made his girlfriend pay for her ticket? #UTAatIND
