RISE & SHOUT . . . SHAYLA'S OUT


ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, SHAY WENT TO HER FIRST
 BYU FOOTBALL GAME WITH ME.
(PART OF THE AUNT ANN EXPERIENCE!)
I'VE WANTED TO TAKE HER FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS.
BUT, ALMOST ALL OF BYU'S GAMES START AT 8:15 P.M.
ANY FRIDAY GAMES, I WOULD HAVE GONE TO GET HER,
THEN WE'D BE IN TRAFFIC!

BYU SOLD THEIR SOULS TO THE DEVIL
WHEN UTAH BOLTED TO THE PAC-12.
BYU LEFT THE MOUNTAIN WEST CONFERENCE AND WENT 
INDEPENDENT IN FOOTBALL, (ALL OTHER SPORTS ARE IN
THE WEST COAST CONFERENCE)
 BUT ESPN IS THEIR BIG BACKER.  THAT'S WHY THE GAMES
ARE SO LATE!  WE ARE THE LAST GAME ON
THEIR NETWORK, CUZ WE'RE THE FURTHEST WEST.

BUT, ON THIS DAY, THE STARS ALIGNED JUST RIGHT.
FOR SOME REASON, ESPN DID NOT WANT TO
BROADCAST A GAME WITH SOUTHERN UTAH UNIVERSITY.
(REALLY???  HARD TO BELIEVE!!!  FIRST TIME
EVER PLAYING AGAINST SUU.)
SO, BYUTV BROADCAST IT AT 1:00 P.M.
I WENT TO SLC AND PICKED UP SHAY, 
AND WE WERE ON OUR WAY!!!
(NO TRAFFIC ON SATURDAY MORNINGS!)

WE PRETTY MUCH HAD THE RUN OF THE
TAILGATE PARTY, BECAUSE WE WERE THERE SO EARLY!






DRUMLINE ENTERTAINMENT


SHAY LOOKS SOOO ADORABLE!


OPENING OF GAME




BYU FLAGS RUNNING
(I ALWAYS WANTED TO SEE THE U AND Y
TRADE PLACES SO IT WOULD SAY "BUY!")


GETTING CLOSE TO A TOUCHDOWN

THEY SAID THIS BYU PLAYER LANDED OUT OF BOUNDS.
LOOKS GOOD IN MY PICTURE!

YOU COULDN'T ASK FOR A MORE GORGEOUS DAY!
NOTHING BETTER THAN FALL AND FOOTBALL!!!
(AND IT WAS ONLY IN THE LOW 60s!  PERFECT!!!)

THE GAME WAS HELD THE DAY AFTER
VETERAN'S DAY.  THEY HONORED THESE
VETERANS FROM WWII ON.  HOWEVER, THOSE THAT 
WERE VIET NAM (THE WAR DURING MY ELEMENTARY
AND JR HIGH YEARS) VETS WERE NEVER
PROPERLY HONORED.  THEY WERE GIVEN A
SPECIAL CERTIFICATE SIGNED BY
PRESIDENT OBAMA!  LONG TIME COMING!

VOCAL POINT SANG



IT'S HARD TO TELL WHAT'S GOING ON IN THIS PICTURE.
BUT, COSMO THE COUGAR WAS GOING FOR A
GUINESS WORLD RECORD!!!
HIGHEST NUMBER OF BACK HANDSPRINGS BY
A MASCOT IN ONE MINUTE!
WHO KNEW???
HE EASILY DID 27.  THEN RESTED A SECOND,
DID TWO MORE, RESTED, THEN TWO MORE.
A WORLD RECORD WAS SET . . . AND WE
WERE THERE TO WITNESS IT!!!
(GUINESS PEOPLE WERE EVEN THERE TO CONFIRM!!!)




GRUMPY GUY

DON'T ASK MY USHER FOR ANY HELP.
SHE'S TOO BUSY DANCING!

WHEN THE EAST STANDS CLEAR OUT,
LOOK WHAT THE SEATS SPELL?





OH, AND BYU WON THE GAME!
