I certainly hope your sentiments are in line with your little, hard-hat wearing kid (did you give him a name, by the way?) and you cheer for the Jazz and not, say, the Portland Trailblazers.
He never actually got a real name. We just always called him "the Safari Guy." And, yes, I am a Jazz fan. A few years ago the Blazers did a really good job of alienating all their fans (with smart moves such as trading good guy Brian Grant and keeping all the hoods) and are just now starting to recover.
I kind of think of him as "Calvin".
There was a bit of Calvin and Hobbes influence. That's probably why he wears the hat - to cover his hair so that you can't tell.
