Check out this insight into being a fan.
So last Thursday night I get a call…”Do you want to go flying?”. I’m always up for something new, so the next morning I found myself out in the desert staring at the most dangerous looking contraption I’d ever seen (not to mention about a gallon of gasoline was spilled on it while filling it up).
I’d have to say it turned about to be one of the best rides of my life. It was much more fun than flying in a small plane because you can slow down, get really low and actually sense what’s going on around you.
Check out a few of the many pictures I took.
The media continues to hype this seasons BYU Cougars. ESPN recently provided this preview that toys with the idea of a perfect season. Personally, I don’t think the Cougs can make it through the season without 1 or 2 loses (away at both Utah & TCU, out of conference games – UCLA & UW). Obviously I’d be happy if they proved me wrong .
Check out the article. It’s a good read, minus some misinformation by the author (roster mistakes, etc.)
This will have to satisfy me until the season starts.
I haven’t missed a BYU home football game since 1998. Basketball games have been a different story. I normally only find the time to check out one game a year, but luckily I’ve made it out to the last two home games.
The UNLV game was one of the most entertaining sporting events I’ve been to in a few years. Normally I don’t enjoy a blowout, but the Cougars had so many highlights that it didn’t matter. Jimmer Fredette…point guard next year (assuming the rumors are true about him postponing his LDS mission)?
BYU vs Utah. As always, this game lived up to expectations. I continue to be amazed that this great rivalry doesn’t get more pub. Anyway, it wasn’t quite as fun as the recent UNLV game. However, the favored BYU team just couldn’t put the Utes away. Of course I’m glad my Cougs pulled out the win, but it did appear to me that the refs weren’t planning on giving the Yewties any favors. The foul margin was pretty drastic (possibly lack of offensive aggression). Nice to sweep the U two years in a row during conference games.
Now it’s time to see if the Cougs can finally win a tourney game.
Last night I ignored all my responsibilities and watched two basketball games. First, I watched my Tar Heels take on the Dukies (always a great game). The Heels held their own in the first half, but it was obvious they weren’t going to pull it off without their starting PG, so yeah, it was a bit frustrating to watch.
Later, I saw a great Jazz game. They won in OT against the Nuggets.
Was this post useless? Yes. It make me feel better about myself though. I haven’t posted in a while.
