Yesterday was the opening game for the 2010 University of Utah football season. I have been counting down for the last three weeks. We started the day off by tailgating and enjoying the nice hot day. Colton loved being outside for the whole day. We walked over to the game and watched the players warm up. Colton was mesmerized watching "ball" and wouldn't look anywhere but the field. As they started playing the introduction video and playing the music my hands started shaking I was so excited! We screamed, clapped, cheered and sang the fight song as the players ran out to start off their season. Colton loves clapping to the fight song and knows to say "O UES!" (go utes) at the end. The game was a great one! It ended up going into overtime and I haven't heard the crowd this loud in a long time. It was so much fun to be there with the energy and the excitement. It also helped that we WON 27-24 thanks to a FANTASTIC interception and a great field goal. It was a great start to what I'm sure will be a GREAT "farewell tour" season.
Colton was so tired at the end he couldn't keep his eyes open despite me (and everyone else) screaming as loud as we could. He was such a good boy the whole game
**side note: the best sign of the game was "Hey INDEPENDENCE, Nobody Likes You!!"**
