Number 7: Jazz fans were devastated on July 4th when some guy left the team. Even worse was HOW he left. If only I could remember his name. @davidjsmith1232 gets it.

SALT LAKE CITY — You may have noticed Utah Jazz-themed signs on the freeway Monday morning, and you can thank Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox for that.
Cox commandeered the Utah Department of Transportation electronic signs and asked the Twittersphere for ideas that promoted road safety while also rooting for the hometown team in the NBA playoffs.
Ok friends, on Monday I’m taking over UDOT’s freeway signs & I need your ideas (by tomorrow at 8pm):— Spencer Cox (@SpencerJCox) April 13, 2018
1) Must be both @utahjazz AND safety themed. #TakeNote
2) You have 3 lines & 17 characters per line (including spaces).
3) Use hashtag #JazzSign.
Best idea wins! pic.twitter.com/5VjQPtnyjg
The end result? Hundreds of hilarious ideas in a contest ultimately won by Fox 13 meteorologist Allison Croghan.
Number 10: I know the Lakers didnât even make the playoffs, but @UTEISH speaks for all Jazz fans here. And the only thing worse than Lakersâ fans are people that go too slow in the left lane. ð ð ¼ð ð ¼ð ð ¼ pic.twitter.com/P2rvtWMxD7— Spencer Cox (@SpencerJCox) April 16, 2018

As you can see, there are some creative thinkers out there rooting for the Jazz against Oklahoma City and for safety on Utah's roadways.
