yesterday we went to the first home game of the season. i was so excited to go -- first game always has so much great energy. unfortunately the cougars didn't get the memo and decided to leave their whole defense at home.
but i digress. we had decent seats, in the lower section on the north end zone:
we were in the sun for the first half of the game -- it wasn't awful, but i was definitely HOT. b made it through the whole game without saying anything mean about the cougars -- though he did wear black, a neutral color:
respective treats for the game -- junior mints for him, jelly beans for me. all the grocery stores around here have self-serve jelly belly dispensers and it is seriously my downfall. [also, please note my unpainted nails. i left them that way for a week, just to see if i could do it. i did...and now they're black again :) ]
we were near a bunch of other MBAs and one of them brought his little son [coincidentally named cooper] and sat right next to me. i spent most of the second half -- after byu started spontaneously combusting -- feeding jelly beans to little cooper. he was more entertaining than the game.
ultimately we got our butts kicked -- final score was florida state 54, byu 28. so much for an awesome season. also, all the other favored teams in the payzant-wells household [university of utah and USC] lost as well. what a depressing day.
at least i had a nice view of the sunset :)
