Take A Picture; It'll Last Longer

Somehow the light pink seems less offensive than 100% Cougar Blue would.  This is the shirt I found Bundle in when I picked her up from the home of our Cougarite Friends on the day of BYU's Sweet 16 game. I could hardly object - the family would actually be coming into our home that night to watch the game with us.  We did our best to make it a fun night - we scootched the couches up close to the t.v. We got pizza and made salad and treats.  We even cheered our hearts out for BYU.  It was such a great game!  So close!  BYU and Florida were tied at the end of regulation - how exciting.  Our friends were so anxious they couldn't even sit - they had to stand up and pace around. And rock back and forth from time to time. I was a little afraid we would have to administer CPR because I thought at least one of them would pass out.  Which is why it was so heartbreaking when the Cougars just fell apart in overtime.  It was tough to watch and tough to see our friends just wilt.  I was heartily sorry for the loss - I even woke in the middle of the night, unable to sleep because I was thinking of Jimmer and also my friends.  Sigh.  What a great year.  I wonder if I'll always harbor a slight fondness for BYU basketball, probably not.  :)

That's how it starts. An "innocent" little pink t-shirt . . . fond memories of a star basketball player . . . and before you know it, your kids will be wearing blue, following the Honor Code, and singing the BYU fight song!

Ha ha ha ha ha!!

It was a heart-breaking over-time. I still get heart palpitations thinking about it.
