Yesterday marked the blessed day of the beginning of another BYU Football season. For Chase, it was the beginning of his favorite time of year - football season. When the end of August starts to roll around, Chase can't contain his excitement. It's a pretty bad addiction. Not only is he obsessed with college football (as if that isn't enough games to watch), he doesn't want to miss a NFL game either. Oh boy... My weekends are about to change.
Yesterday we went to BYU's first game of the season. We go every year. When we first started going, I didn't know a dang thing about football - even though I cheered in high school and one year in college. You would think that you would learn a few things when you are right on the sidelines for a few years, but apparently I was too busy with my hurkeys! Anyway, the first year that I went with Chase to all the games I was most excited when the cheerleaders or Cougarettes rotated in front of us. I finally had something to watch! Also, in that first season I looked at Chase and said, "Why are they getting so many 1st downs every time? Don't you have to get 4 downs and THEN start over with the first?" It was then that he questioned what high school/college cheerleaders really do on the sidelines.
But, now that Chase and I are on our 3rd season since we've been dating/married, there is starting to be a little change inside of me. Ought oh....Don't get me wrong. I am nowhere near the same commitment level as Chase. But, yesterday as I was driving to the stadium I was excited. I think I just might be starting to bleed blue.
