What The....



....BYU?  I actually meant to take a picture of us last night just to document this momentously unheard-of occasion, but for some Freudian reason I forgot to bring the camera. We had been graciously invited to attend a Saint Patrick's Day feast by our good friends the Radants. And it just so happened that dinner was scheduled during BYU's game in the 1st round of the NCAA tournament. Very sneaky of them; the Radants are extremely loyal Cougars. What else could we do?  We watched it with them.  And....we even cheered for the Cougars.  Weird.  We couldn't really help it - I mean, Jimmer Fredette is really just a spectacle to behold.  And he seems like a perfectly nice, respectful young man. Okay, I'll confess. We're all Jimmer fans over here.  So yes, we were caught cheering for the bad guys.  Stomper picked up on this a few weeks ago and he got really confused. "Dad," he said, "I thought that BYU were the bad guys!"  "Well son," replied his father, "Sometimes it's okay to cheer for BYU...in basketball...."  Troy had to cut short Stomper's lecture on moral relativism before it went too far and had to placate him with one of those fabulous parental statements:  "You'll understand when you're older."  There, that should solve his issues, shouldn't it?

it's an important lesson to learn for young stomper! ya know, i am soooooo out of touch with everything, that i had NO CLUE who this jimmer person was until about a week ago. and all i know is that he has an odd name and plays basketball for byu. i think i still have some catching up to do!

I too found myself cheering for The Team Down South. In fact, I watched the whole second half...by myself..and caught myself yelling out loud and clapping! A dark day.
