the Church is still true...

President Monson cheers on Jazz.....

(In response to my good friend Bry's similar blog post)

For people who know me well, they know that one of my perhaps borderline unhealthy obsessions is with the Utah Jazz.....Since I've been at school in Phoenix I don't get to catch as many games on TV and I prefer, but I do watch enough (channelsurfing.net) to keep me alive. I love wearing my Jazz gear to the gym (which is a local Phoenix Suns sponsored YMCA) and getting awesome looks from people. Whenever the Jazz do play the Suns on TV its a lot of fun to go to a local sports bar or restaurant and be the only Jazz fans (and sober people) in the whole place.

Recently on the Deseret News, there was a great article (see above link) about how President Monson enjoys going to a few Jazz games a month. What an awesome guy. Besides his daily duties being a Prophet, Seer and Revelator, he takes time to enjoy a very important and worthwhile past-time.

I have always tried my best to follow the Prophet and in this regard I can say I am definitely 100%, if not 110%.

That is great that he goes to the games, and in his suit non-the-less, I guess it would be weird to see him in anything else.
I bet that the girl behind him is texting all her contacts that she is sitting behind Pres. Monson. haha I know I would be.

I love this! I had no idea...I might just steal this picture to blog about. I love knowing that they're real people.

I bet everyone around them were very well-behaved fans that night. No shouting obsenities at the other team...

This photo looks totally photo-shopped, but I hear it's the real thing. Now who are the Jazz again?

Love it. But, can't he dress a bit more casual at those games?

That's great. If only everything were this easy to get excited about right? ;)
