The Feel-Good Story of the Year from the Utah Jazz...

If you are a Utah Jazz fan, you have already heard of Sundiata Gaines. In fact, if you are a basketball fan, you should have heard of Sundiata Gaines.

Great story kid. Way to be. I'm sure your mom is proud of you. Heck, I'm proud of you and I don't even know you. I guess that is why we love sports. What can I say? Sign the kid to a contract. He is the most exciting thing that the Jazz have going this year. Go get 'em rookie!

Further Proof of BYU's Extreme Class

BYU crushes the Air Force Academy nearly every time we face the Falcons in a major NCAA sport but, when we crush them, we do it with love and hearts full of resepct:

Thanks Air Force! We love and appreciate you guys. When it comes to sports, we want BYU to win. When it comes to real fights and battles, we want you to be victorious with little or no harm to yourselves and/or your families and loved ones.
