i know i’m silly, but i’m crying over sloan

Feb 10, 2011

Silliness. Pure silliness, but I am crying over Jerry Sloan leaving the Utah Jazz. I grew up watching the Jazz and pretty much worshiping the ground John Stockton walked on. Jerry Sloan has been an institution at the Utah Jazz. Watching him pace the sidelines, holler at officials, and smile at fabulous plays has been a large part of my life.

It’s not a big deal, but it is change, and I have decided I am just not very good at change. I want things to stay the same forever.

They don’t and somehow I need to learn that lesson. Sloan leaving is one more opportunity for me to learn it.

  1. I cried for a week when my parents did a very necessary remodel of our house, and removed a built-in cabinet in the corner of the dining room.

    I entirely get the “not liking change” part. :) I hope this week is going really, really well for you and your family, change notwithstanding!

  2. We’ve been talking about Sloan for the last few days around here too. We’re sad. It will be different. We’ll still watch the Jazz and see how they do.
