The Ice Pick Wars

In reference to the Jazz and its recent defeat to the Miami Heat, Coach Jerry Sloan spoke to reporters regarding the team's effort, battling through adversity and playing shorthanded. This is what he had to say to the Deseret News...

"You know, when we're shorthanded, we need that (Millsap's effort). We can't just say, 'Well, we'll get 'em next game,'" he added. "This stuff rolls by you really fast, and pretty soon you wake up and say, 'Wow, we've dug a hole for ourselves and now's the time to come out of it.' Well, it usually doesn't work that way."

"I just think," he said, "we have to continue to work at it, see how we come back, not have too many ice-pick wars in the locker room and out in the street, and we'll be fine."
Ice-pick wars?
Did he just say... ice-pick wars?
Huh!?
Is this what he meant by Ice-Pick Wars?...
Ice-Pick, the Warrior...

Ice-Pick, the Villian...

Go Jazz! Win those Ice-Pick Wars!

If the guys are going at each other with ice picks in the locker room, that might explain all those injuries.

The Ice Pick Wars refer to a time when Jerry was growing up on the farm and there was an early frost. His father and him had to go free up the John Deere's armed with only ice picks. Sadly they were not able to save all the crops. Hopefully he is able to save this years crop.

PS- tomorrow is one of the only games on national tv for those of you outside of Utah. yipee
