Dirty Things I Would Do For The Jazz To Finally Win A Championship!
I'm sitting here watching the Denver Nuggets win their first ever NBA Championship after 40-something years. But I've never been about to see MY Utah Jazz win a championship!
The Jazz are one of the UNLUCKIEST TEAMS to ever play in the NBA. Both chances to win a championship came down to Michael Jordan beating us right at the end!
IT STILL HURTS!
1. Hook up with the gnarliest trucker dude that you can find!
2. Lick the shopping cart handles at Lin's in Dixie Downs!
3. Change the Dixie Rock to WHATEVER YA'LL are trying to change it to!
4. Go streaking down Bluff Street on a Friday Night.
5. Roll around in the itchy sand and get swimmer's itch at Sand Hollow:
6. Makeout with ANYONE at a certain bar in St. George... You know the bar!
7. Attempt to drive ANYWHERE in Southern Utah when The Iron Man is in town!
8. Screw it! I'll do the stupid Iron Man! (I'll probably die during the swim)
9. Walk barefoot down St. George Boulevard in mid-july!
10. Open a French kissing booth at the Washington County Fair!
St. George Utah's FAVORITE Gas Stations!
What makes a gas station your FAVORITE?
Cleanliness? Proximity to your house or job? Friendly staff?
Well, St. George has voted, and HERE are people's FAVORITE gas stations in town!
Located on Red Cliffs Drive and Green Spring Drive, Hart's has been a staple for YEARS on the East side of town! Growing up, I used to go to this place every week!
Located on River Road in Bloomington Hills. Is this place still called Mr. D's? It's been there FOREVER, and everyone has ALWAYS called it Mr. D's!
First Stop (Washington):
This seems to be Washington's FAVORITE gas station! Located on Telegraph, in the absolute HEART of Washington. If you grew up in "Dogtown", you've definitely bought some treats here!
I remember coming here AT LEAST 25 years ago! They used to rent movies, and my mom let me rent "The Brave Little Toaster!" Today, I'm there ALL THE TIME! Especially to get myself some Taco Time. Ooh... Remember when it was Taco Bell?! That was at least 15 years ago!
Dutchman's Market in Santa Clara! They've even got a nice little bakery where you're going get some DANGGGG GOOD cookies! This was the place to be if you grew up in Santa Clara!
MAVERIK (SOUTH RIVER ROAD):
You knew that Maverik had to be on this list SOMEWHERE... and after asking everyone WHICH is the best, I found THIS ONE! South River Road near the original Summit Athletic Club.
Red Cliffs Station (R.I.P.):
I got SO MANY PEOPLE telling me how much they miss this one... The EZ Shoppe! It has a drive thru window! This was WAY BEFORE other gas stations like Fabulous Freddy's had a drive through window! R.I.P. to this King though... This location is now a shopping center with Starbucks and Sleep Number Store (Across the street from Hart's and In-N-Out)
You're DEFINITELY From Utah If You Can Pronounce These Towns Correctly
If you can pronounce THESE UTAH TOWN NAMES correctly... You're DEFINITELY a Utah Native!
This is one that music stars struggle with the most. Especially because Country Fan Fest happens in Tooele every summer. It's not TOO-LEE. It's TOO-WILL-UH.
Koosharem is pretty much the middle of NOWHERE, but it's NOT Koo-SHARE-EM!
Do you know why it's called Levan? Because it's NAVEL backwards. As in Belly Button. As in the MIDDLE of the state. There you go!
No clue where this one came from. But it's not Can-ish it's Kuh-NOSH.
People get this one wrong A LOT. People always assume it's pronounced MOBE.
Don't you DARE get this one wrong. It's not the way it's spelled. It's also kind of bizarre that it's not pronounced like Hurri-CANE! It was named after the windy weather!
All the time people pronounce this place as Kuh-NOBB. NO!
This one is the hardest for me to remember. People think it's Kam-muss, kay-muss, or Kawmuss.
This one should be pretty self-explanatory, but usually people think it's Man-Tee. NOPE!
It's NOT Do-Chesney! This one is tough, I'll give you a pass on this one!
Ess-Kuh-Lant OR Ess-Kuh-Lant-Tee
Truthfully speaking... I don't think anyone knows the ACTUALLY pronunciation of this place, because I always hear it BOTH WAYS!
I need to find the real reason Paragonah is named Paragonah. It sounds like a gibberish word!
Of course... It's NOT SKIPPY-O. But actually... I think that would be more fun!
Black & White Utah License Plate... HOW TO GET IT NOW!
Here in Utah, we have the BEST license plate in the game... The Arches plate. Orange, Blue, White. GORGEOUS. But all the sudden, we suddenly have THE TOUGHEST plate of all time: Black & White! And you can get it on your car today!
I saw this from Twitter user: @SplashNephew where he posted these new Black & White plates on his Volvo (Below).
Twitter blew up with people wondering HOW? How can we all get these plates on our cars? Firstly: These are special plates that require annual contributions to the Utah Historical Society. Meaning, you will pay $25 for an initial contribution, and $25/year as an annual contribution. Here is a STEP BY STEP on HOW to get these plates!
- It can be obtained at ANY DMV office and will be mailed from the Utah State Tax Commission.

Box 30412, Salt Lake City, UT, 84130.
These plates, NO DOUBT, will start showing up all over the place, so get yours today! I'm THRILLED these are finally available in Utah!
Wow! Utah's Next License Plates??
Utah's license plates are... OKAY. The Arches plate is AMAZING, but the others? Ehh...
I decided to design the NEXT license plates for MY HOME STATE: Utah!
1. The Dixie Plate:
There's not a chance this thing will fly, but I want it! I'd have it tomorrow! Fairly simple, but gives the St. George Pride Vibe with the sunset behind it. Showing clear skies that we get nearly everyday in St. George.
2. Modern Utah Jazz Plate:
No. Forget what I said on the Dixie Plate. I would have THIS ONE on my car tomorrow! The Jazz just did a whole new rebrand and they're keeping it simple. Bright yellow with the black. It pops. I love this plate!
3. The Beehive Plate:
The Beehive State, The Beehive Plate. An actual hive in the background with gooey honey running behind the numbers. This one would be the most UNIQUE plate in the world, and I'm kind of crazy about it!
4. The Elk Plate:
This ones for all the dudes out there. The Elk is the state animal of Utah, and I know there would be TONS of back-country folk that would sport this bad boy! Come on!
5. The Fry Sauce Plate:
Our most VALUABLE resource: Fry Sauce! It's a Utah staple, and it's GLORIOUS! In Fry Sauce We Trust!
6. The Califutah Plate.
This one is made for all those Californian's moving to Utah and trying to turn Utah into California. It's essentially the California license plate with Utah instead of California... Just to make them a little more comfy here.
See! It's a dead ringer! They'd LOVE IT!
Who do we need to send these to? Let's have the MOST AWESOME plates in the nation! Come on, Utah!
