First BYU Football game

I think I maybe make it to two football games per year, if that. I would rather watch basketball or volleyball. I think the reason why I don't enjoy the games as much is cause I am usually too hot, too cold, and crammed with tons of others standing up and down when I would rather just stay sitting.

I thought that since this game began at four, we wouldn't be so hot, and I knew it definitely wouldn't be too cold. As brilliant as I think I am, I just thought I would have to deal with people standing up and down, which I could do....I was wrong! It was so hot! The man in front of me sat against my knees and he also opened up a sprite that had been previously shaken and sprayed the poor guy and those surrounding him with a sticky, lemon-lime scented liquid. People were walking past with sweaty bums, heads of dripping hair, and each clad in navy blue BYU gear!

Despite the poor conditions, it was a ton of fun! I was able to sit with Rachel and Matt, who were in town on a visit. It was fun to catch up, and remember being there with all of our friends in years past.

I love the energy the fans bring with them, but I think I will enjoy the next few games from my couch, or the treadmill at the gym........ Thanks again Rach and Matt!

Wasn't it much easier when the stadium was in our back yard and we could just listen to the game?! The good ole days!!

Lucky you and the lemon-lime flavored liquid. Yum. So delicious. I don't like football games for the same reasons. It drives Rob crazy!

I am so sad we couldn't come out for it. That really would have been fun to go with you and rach and matt. It would have made the football game experience actually worth it. I COMPLETELY agree with you on the games. My biggest thing is standing the whole time. Ughhh--what is the point. Love ya girl! Cute blog post!

Great minds think alike. I would totally have less stress just watching the games on TV. I don't think I'm a fan of big crowds either.
