The Utah Jazz Play to Hear the Sweet Sound of an NBA Championship

Have you ever wondered why the Utah Jazz is named as such? New Orleans, Louisiana was the birthplace of jazz, right? In fact, the NBA squad, the Utah Jazz, was originally the New Orleans Jazz. The Jazz played in New Orleans from 1975-1979. When the team moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, it retained the original team name.

Here are some interesting facts about Utah:

• Utah’s name originates from the Ute Native Americans
• Utah’s nickname is the “Beehive State”
• The state bird is ironically the California Sea Gull
• The Utah state flag contains a beehive, which symbolizes diligence
• Major industries include farming, mining, natural gas, oil, and steel production

The Utah Jazz’s premiere season in the NBA included some sour notes. They lost their first game to the Portland Trailblazers, and ended the season with 24-58 record. Although the Jazz’s first season was disappointing, they were beginning to create a solid foundation on which to build the franchise.

Less than two decades after entering the NBA, the Jazz’s team was playing sweet music. In particular, the duo of John Stockton and Karl Malone created one of the best one-two punches in the league. In 1996-1997, the Jazz earned a franchise-best 64-18 during the regular season.

The Jazz would glide through the playoffs. They sank the Los Angeles Clippers (3-0), drowned the Los Angeles Lakers (4-1), and eliminated the Houston Rockets in a war (4-2). In the NBA Finals, the Jazz faced Michael Jordan and the mighty Chicago Bulls. Though the Jazz played the Bulls closely, the Bulls overpowered them and won the series (4-2).

Having established a solid team, the Jazz would play all the right notes during the next regular season, finishing with an outstanding 62-20 record. In the playoffs, the Jazz would battle back to shoot down the Houston Rockets (3-2), unseat the San Antonio Spurs (4-1), and then drain the Los Angeles Lakers (4-0).

Many NBA experts chose the Utah Jazz to end the Bulls’ five-championship dynasty. However, the Jazz fell behind in the series 3-1, and never recovered. In Game 6, Michael Jordan willed the Bulls to victory and a 4-2 series win.

How have the Jazz fared since their last trip to the NBA Finals? While they have made seven playoff appearances and won three division crowns, the farthest they have advanced was to the Western Conference Finals (2007).

Throughout their history, the Jazz have retired the jersey numbers of seven players:

Adrian Dantley – #4 (Forward): 1979-1984
Mark Eaton – #53 (Center): 1982-1993
Darrell Griffith – #35 (Guard): 1980-1991
Jeff Hornacek – #14 (Guard): 1993-2000
Karl Malone – #32 (Forward): 1985-2003
Pete Maravich – #7 (Guard): 1974-1980
John Stockton – #12 (Guard) 1984-2003

It is inevitable that some of these players will also enter the basketball Hall of Fame.

While the Utah Jazz has earned two trips to the NBA Finals, it has not completed its song. Use Utah Jazz merchandise to cheer on the team to the sweet sound of an NBA Championship!

The Magic of Orlando Extends Beyond Disneyworld

Orlando, Florida, is a popular choice for parents who want to take their kids on a short break this April. After all, Disneyworld – the world’s favourite children’s theme park – is located there and thus provides an excellent place to let your children run amok! However, next time you’re in Orlando for some family fun, try and look beyond Disneyworld as April in Orlando could hold some very interesting surprises!

One of the most high profile events in Orlando’s April Calendar is the Central Florida Fair. Running since 1912, the Central Florida Fair offers food, exhibits, music, rides and entertainment for the entire family – so if Mickey ever gets a little too much, your kids will get to enjoy something non-Disney related in Orlando. The 2007 Central Florida Fair boasts a variety of attractions, including Kenya Safari Acrobats, the Sunburst Beauty Pageant & Baby Contest (open to girls and women aged 4 to 27 years) and the Frisco Brothers Exotic Annual Exhibit & Show, which is back for a remarkable eighth year running.

If you’re looking for some active fun in Orlando this spring, why not take your kids down to the Soap Box Derby Rally. Whether you’re a first time driver or an experienced soap box racer, make sure you seize this chance! Race cars will be available to drivers at the rally free of charge; and each driver will be able to make several test runs down the track to see if the Soap Box Derby Rally floats your boat. And since the Soap Box Derby Rally is restricted to drivers aged 7 to 16, you know your kids will be safe and have fun with other children their own age.

Finally, one of Orlando’s most exciting festivals held in April is the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival. This exciting festival has been an annual fixture in Orlando’s calendar since 1989 and brings the smells, sounds and tastes of the famous Louisiana Cajun Country to Florida. With sizzling Louisiana-style Cajun and Zydeco music, a relaxed atmosphere and first-class Louisiana cuisine, you and your family are sure to have a wonderful time at the Rajuncajun Crawfish festival! Whether it’s bluegrass, fiddle or classic rock music you love, the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival will offer you all this and more, accompanied by a Cajun buffet that includes double dipped black bayou fried chicken, corn on the cob, shrimp head-on Louisiana style, red creamer potatoes and more besides.

If you’re planning on a family holiday to Orlando in April, why not opt for a hotel suite for a more cosy family accommodation experience. You’ll find plenty of hotels and hotel suites in Orlando at your disposal, so you and your family will be able to enjoy the magic of Orlando in peace and comfort – whether you choose to spend it in Disneyworld or not!

what is the name of the type of acapella music that originates from the bayou or Cajun area of Louisiana?

If you ever seen a episode of Courage The Cowardly Dog, the type of music I’m asking about is at the openning credits of season 4 episode of The Uncommon Cold

I think it’s called zydeco.

What Indian Reservation welcome visitors as tourists ,that are not to far from Louisiana?

Not all Indian Resevations welcome visitors and I want to go to a reservation on my vacation and learn something of their culture.I’m driving so I would prefer to be closer to Louisiana. I’ve been to Cherokee N. Carolina and really enjoyed the set up there. someone took us around and showed us around and explained thing as we went along. I would like to learn about the other nations as well. I have tried searching and am not too good at it, so I am at a loss. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Try the Matta’poni Indian Reservation in King William County, Virginia. The Shaman is John Sun Eagle and his Wife Gentlewind. They are a lovely couple and they welcome all without making reservations..(small joke) but, seriously, they are great people! Check out the Mattaponi Reservation online, go to any search engine, yahoo, google, and you will find their site describing their reservation, history, ect..

The Chief is Chief Webster Little Eagle. We use to go every weekend to see them. They usually have other people there from all over the world. It is great, we are originally from new york city, and we have met people on his reservation from Ireland, France, Spain, Peru, England, it’s amazing how many connections you make from people that are interested in the Native American Indian Culture.

Try also yahoo’s search, type in John and Sharon Sun Eagle on Mattaponi Indian Reservation and see if they have another site up. They also sponsor kids from other Reservations.

If you ever really want to travel the distance, try heading toward the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota during the Summer time or during the "Gathering of the Nations" Pow Wow, all full bloods participate in that pow wow, it is beyond amazing!!

The Indians at Mattaponi will give you more information concerning other reservations you may visit and attend their pow wows. usually their schedules are online..just type in indian pow wows and the state you would like to visit.

I hope this info helps you out some.
Good luck on your next trip!

feel free to ask me about more info regarding the Res.
