Joe’s mom made it to Utah just in time for the big game on Friday. In-state rival Brigham Young University came to a packed stadium in Logan. Joe said the tickets sold out within 45 minutes, so we caught the game from the band stands.
Which is on the student section side of the stadium. (Say that 10 times fast.) These guys know how to party.
They even made signs for the game. This one was by far my favorite. It’s about as trash-talky as it gets in these parts.
I loved sitting here, though, because we really got an up-close-and-personal view of the band and their fearless leader.
Despite freezing temps, it was a beautiful night.
If I didn’t think we’d lose our seats, I would have run to the other side of the stadium to catch what’s been the most beautiful sunset since we’ve arrived. Ah, the sacrifices I make as a wife! 😉
The band put on a great halftime show—their last performance of Les Mis. Next week starts their “fun.” show.
You know what isn’t “fun.”? Having your star quarterback get hurt in the first quarter. Poor USU couldn’t recover from the loss of Chuckie Keeton and it’s been announced he’ll be out for the remainder of the season due to torn ligaments in his knee. Look at me talk about football! Aren’t you impressed?!
