I so graduated from BYU, but never really got into the athletics. I think being the only girl with four jock brothers took all the love for sports right from me. If the star on the field didn't have the last name "Hamm", it just didn't interest me. There were a few exceptions. I liked watching the cheerleaders when one of them was my roommate and I liked watching the football players when one was engaged to my other roommate. I think it takes that personal connection. I love the pics you took! You are definitely a fan, and that must have been one seriously gratifying game!

You might be a BYU football fanatic if you are down with the little kids waiting for the players to give you a high five as they pass. Yes, just like the picture you took, I was down there doing the same! I still can't get over that game! We can't wait for the game tomorrow. Wish you guys were here for it!
