BYU vs Utah



So the big BYU vs Utah game was last weekend. It was pretty amazing. I had thought I wasn't going to be able to go because I had to work, but luckily I was able to convince my boss that as long as I left early and beat the rush, it'd be ok. One of my friends and her fiancee were in town for the game so we got to sit by them and had lots of fun! TJ got WAY into it, of course, and a couple times I had to remind him to breathe, or tell him that I was going to get a bruise if he kept punching me every time something good happened. So, by the fourth quarter, BYU was up 20-6 and so I decided it was about time for me to leave. As soon as I did that, of course, the game got really interesting. Utah scored 14 unanswered points to send it into overtime! Then, in overtime, Utah scored a field goal first, but BYU scored a touchdown to win the game!! TJ called me to tell me the good news and I could barely understand him. That also might have had something to do with the fact, though, that he was in the process of rushing the field at the time. He had to come by work afterwards to get the car, and showed me his now most prized possession - blue and white grass from the end zone. I'm not gonna lie, I thought he was kinda crazy when I saw it. Later, some more exciting stuff surrounding football happened when Max Hall (the quarter back for BYU), Dennis Pitta (tight end for BYU), another player (I can't remember his name...) and their families all came in to eat at Pizza Pie Cafe! They had been in the weekend before after another game, so apparently they like it! I text TJ to tell him they were there, and he begged be to get a picture of them. He wanted me to be all sketchy and try to just sneak a picture of them on my phone. I told him no way. But then, as they were all leaving, I decided to be nice, and so I asked Pitta if one of the other girls who worked there and I would have a picture with him. It was pretty fuzzy, but it was the best I could get. TJ was super excited to show it off to everyone, so here it is (plus a picture of TJ's grass...)!

I can't believe you left before all the exciting stuff! That would be just my luck, too. But how cool that you got to meet some of the players. Too bad Teej couldn't be there. And, for some reason, I was actually surprised that TJ was one of those crazy fans that rushed the field. =) Love the grass!
