"Football is an incredible game.
Sometimes it's so incredible that it's unbelievable."
- Tom Landry
I am the oldest child of a huge football fan. So naturally I became one myself. I grew up watching Monday Night Football and cheering with my dad. He taught me how the game was played and that it was much more than a bunch of guys running into each other. He taught me what a smart and fast-thinking game it is.
When I got a little older, my dad bought season tickets for BYU football two seasons in a row. He had two tickets for each home game and he would rotate who he would invite to the games. But more often then not, I ended up being the one to go with him because my siblings would turn him down. They lacked my overwhelming passion for the sport. I seized every opportunity to go to those games.
My love for the game of football continued as I attended college at the University of Utah. I immediately signed up for the MUSS (Mighty Utah Student Section) and picked up my season tickets.
I kept those season tickets through my four years at the U and I loved every minute of it. I watched as the Utes had an undefeated season in 2008-2009 and went on to win the Sugar Bowl against Alabama. I stuck by my team through quarterback changes, disapointing losses and exhilerating victories. I formed great friendships with those I sat by at every game.
After my husband and I graduated, we started a family and immediately bought them their own Utah gear. Now we spend our Saturdays every week in the fall with college football on the TV all day.
It's the most wonderful time of the year and it's back! Football season is in full swing!
