Utah owner Miller won’t listen to Jazz on the Sabbath

ESPN.com has a great article by Gene Wojciechowski about Larry Miller, the owner of the Utah Jazz. Larry Miller is also Brother Miller, an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Miller is LDS — a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You can’t swing a Q-tip in this part of the world without hitting a Mormon.

Anyway, it says in my hotel-supplied Book of Mormon that Sunday is an off day. Those aren’t the exact words. Jarom and Mosiah use more thous and thys, but the gist of it is pretty clear.

So that’s why Miller is behind the wheel of a brand new LS 450 (the instrument instructions still hang from the steering column), driving farther and farther away from the very place he’d give anything to be at: Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City … Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals … Los Angeles Lakers versus his Jazz.

Wow! He doesn’t go to games on Sunday. That is some level of dedication!
