Better Dead Than Red...

Or so I hear anyway... Red is my favorite color, but not on days that University of Utah is being talked about. My life might be in danger if I were to admit such a thing in this town. The most dangerous thing around here is probably the BYU fans. Don't get me wrong, I love BYU but I personally don't think a color is going to make a difference.

Anyway, we went to the BYU vs. Utah basketball game last Saturday. One of Dave's friends, Kyle, is a huge fan and was camped out with the crazy people to get good seats at the game. We were the 17th tent in line. By Saturday morning, the day of the game, there were over 80 tents up around the Mariott Center. It was crazy!! Dave and I went out Saturday morning and stood in line to make sure we keep our spot. We got to see all the random groups, some playing Rock Band, or watching movies, or other random things that, generally, are not done outside in the cold. While waiting in line, we got to see some of the players come around and talk to the people in line. The athletic trainers also came out and were giving out dozens and dozens of donuts to people who had been in line for days. It was pretty cool! =) Free donuts!

Once inside, the fans were insane. They were booing at the slightest bit of red that came in to the building... and this was about an hour and a half before the game even started... I love listening to loud, crazy people boo at a color... (I hope you caught that sarcasm, I was laying it on PRETTY thick...) =) It was a really good game, and to make it better, BYU came out on top, as they should. I have some pictures of our crazy group... =) We had a great time!

sounds like FUN! I love doing crazy stuff like that. Most the time it is not for the love of the big event more for the excitment of doing something crazy. ;)
