Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air::

Dear Ronnie Brewer~

When I heard the news you were traded to the Grizzlies I was deeply saddened. As much as I tried, I couldn't hold back the tears. I didn't know I was this attached to you. I loved watching you play for the Jazz and will miss you. We all will. I wish you the best of luck in your new adventure. You will ROCK with the Memphis Grizzlies. Please come back to visit me soon and remember that we will always be best friends.

Your favorite fan~

Jazz trade Brewer to Grizzlies

The Utah Jazz traded Ronnie Brewer to the Memphis Grizzlies Thursday for a protected 2011 first-round pick.

Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor said the deal came together just before the 3 p.m. ET trade deadline.

O'Connor says the Jazz have some depth at Brewer's position, so they could afford to trade Brewer, their first-round pick from the 2006 draft. Brewer is making $2.7 million this season and will be a restricted free agent this summer.

"We felt like we gain an asset for drafts coming up," Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor said Thursday. "We felt like we had a lot of players that were similar."

The deal gives the Grizzlies yet another athletic swingman and allows the Jazz to save money.

Utah had a bit of a logjam at Brewer's position. His salary was essentially double that because the Jazz are over the luxury-tax threshold.

O'Connor said the trade won't put the Jazz under the luxury tax penalty, but it does get them closer and gives them some stock in future drafts, possibly as early as next year.

"If we didn't get an asset back we wouldn't have made the deal," he said.

Brewer started all 53 games this season and 80 of 81 last year. He has been starting since his second season in the league and averaged 10.5 points in 266 games for the Jazz.

Brewer's agent, Henry Thomas, said there had been talk about a deal with the Grizzlies for more than a month, but it had died down until the last-minute trade Thursday.

"It was a little bit of a surprise," Thomas said. "I think it's a little too fresh for him to really have a good handle on his feelings right now."

Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said Brewer is a winning NBA player.

"Ronnie is an intelligent, versatile player who is an excellent ballhandler and defender," he said.

x96 Film Festival::

This was a freaking BLAST!!! Our friend Aron (no I did not spell his name wrong) invited us to come see his short film that he entered in the film festival. We had never been to one before so we thought it would be awesome to go and support him.

All the movies were so cool. I think there were 18 all together that we watched. All the movies were so different. Some funny, boring, (haha) serious, and scary. Totally sweet though! They even gave us food and some great desserts.

I hope we keep going to these types of things. It was a great experience. Aron did awesome too! I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.

Here we are with the x96 people ...Kerry, Daniel, Me, and BillI know this one is weird/blurry but you had to check out what Bill was wearing. They were both surprisingly short too! Big voices on the radio...short bodies. hahahaha.Just snapping a few pictures while waiting for the movies to start. I love my boy!The theater was pretty sweet.
Here is the screen we of course watched the movies on. (thanks Mr. Obvious)It wasn't very big but I loved the inside of the theater.Again it was SO much FUN! Seriously everyone should try to go to a film festival sometime in their life. It was worth being up late, even with work the next day. ha.

Special thanks to Aron for entering and inviting us!

"We're Ba-ack" {creepy voice}

Utah Jazz VS Portland Trail Blazers...
118 to 105

I'm sorry to everyone, but this is like my journal so I do need to post the Jazz game that we went to last Wednesday (02-03-10)

The Jazz of course won, they are pretty much AMAZING! It was a fun/crazy night. Dan's brother and his date Madi went with us. We've never doubled with him before so that was a lot of fun. I hope we do more often.

We got there an hour early like usual..so the place is still pretty empty. I love watching the players warm up and to get right down by the court.
The news guys getting ready to do their thaaang.During one of the time outs they brought out some people competing in the winter Olympics. It was pretty sweet. They are such talented people. {when I grow up, I'm going to be in the Olympics}These were the funniest ladies. I searched online and I can't find what their group is called. I believe you have to be 52 and older to be in their dance group. There were so many of them.Check out a video of them.
videoEnough messing around...lets get back to the game. =0)And there you have it. Another great game and a fun date night with my Bestest Friend Daniel.

I won! Yippity Skippity!

So I love listeing to KBer and I always call in to try and win stuff. Even if I don't know what I'm calling to win. Today on my way home I just heard "CALL right now and be caller #10". They gave their numbers and I hurried as fast as I could! I was caller #2, and I re-dialed and then was caller #6, (that never happens...well 2 other times to me. ha!) and then I was caller #10!!!! I was so excited. I got 2 tickets to see Wolfman at the premiere. The show doesn't look that great, but I WON! I freaking won! I love it! Now I just need to find time to run to Salt Lake to pick up the tickets at the radio station.
