I was just going about my day today, when I happened to see an email from my bank. This email was announcing the fact that Deseret First Credit Union was holding a contest that would award the winner with two tickets to the BYU - Utah game in September. This is what the email asked "Are you the world's biggest fan of BYU or the University of Utah? Let everyone know on Deseret First's Facebook page! "
Well, hello, any contest looking for the biggest BYU fan is definitely one for me. And then for the prize to be BYU football tickets, well that was a no brainer. I mean it does seem like I may have a slight unfair advantage, given my stalking skills and relentless quest for all things BYU football.
I immediately scanned through my memory and photo folders to find the perfect picture. The only problem is which ONE to choose. Really, why wouldn't they allow me to submit my entire BYU football portfolio? I even have a published book, remember? Because seriously if it was about quantity, I think I could win that contest.
Asking me to pick my favorite BYU football picture, is like asking me to pick my favorite child. So not fair, and actually quite impossible. But if I wanted to enter, then one picture had to be picked. I choose this one, because who can compete with a magical Turkey bone found in my Thanksgiving turkey, predicting the successful win for BYU against Utah that year?
To make me feel a little bit better, I thought I would post some of the runner's up here, since I have no limit on pictures posted on my blog.
Now I could have gone on for days talking about my pictures and who I have stalked and when and where. My pictures are rather exhaustive. But these were some of the best ones. I know there are other people whose passion for BYU football is equal to mine, but there is no denying that I am a true Cougar, through and through.
I have been through some difficult times in the past 4 years, and yet BYU football has always been there for me, and at times when nothing else could, has put a smile on my face without fail. BYU football I thank you for that. Here is to many more good times to come. And who knows some day, my dream of having a poster in the locker room that warns players to watch out for me, well it may just come true. Stranger things have happened.
