UTAH MAN AM I!!!
My FAVORITE time of the year is finally here! Utah Football season kicked off last Thursday (August 30, 2012) at Rice Eccles Stadium. I got off work early so we could head up to the tailgate lot and kick the season off right! It is tradition that Colton gets a jersey every year and gets to come to at least the first game of each season. Considering of how long a day it was he did a great job! My mom and Terry took the motor home up to the tailgate lot up at 6:00AM Thursday morning so we could get the spot and Colton had to go with so I could head to work. When they were driving up by the stadium my mom could here Colton singing the fight song in the back seat.
PROUD MOM moment right there!!
We spent most the afternoon looking for "snoopy" (Swoop) before heading over to the game. He was SO excited when Swoop parachuted from a helicopter in the sky to bring down the game ball! He talked about that for a couple days afterwards!
Even though we played a very small team that was a little below our talent level it was still a fun game! The Utes ended up winning 41-0! Now we head up to Logan Friday to watch the take on the Utah State Aggies then it will be the much anticipated Rivalry Game on the 15th at Rice Eccles.
YAY for September and FOOTBALL!!
