So in my daily perusing of the Interwebs, I stumble across this gem of an article on SI.com:
The 25 most-hated teams of all-time.
Outstanding. I cannot wait to see what SI says about the evil Karl Malone, John Stockton and Jerry Sloan Utah Jazz teams of the mid-1990s. The material is endless, right?
Then I get to team #25 (the 2011 Miami Heat... naturally)... and I realize...
where the hell are the Utah Jazz on this list?
[answer: nowhere to be found]
Can we seriously live in a world where a hockey team is more hated than, say, the 1995 Utah Jazz?? Really? I refuse to accept this. There cannot possibly be a team more hated across the board than that Utah team. I mean, even the #1 team (the 1986 Miami Hurricanes) were entertaining while being hateable. The Jazz have never offered anything even remotely entertaining.
I demand a recount, SI!
