Oh BYU, How I Love You!

For those of you that haven't been able to tell I Love BYU and am a huge-major-(insert another BIG word here) fan of them. I was super sad to have to work on Saturday but was glad that my brother was able to keep me updated throughout the day via Twitter texts (:D).

I love this video, one of the most recent comments on it was that every time the person watched it, it sends chills down their spine...I totally agree with them.

My brother sent us this e-mail today from someone that was at the game and this was their perspective from being at the game...

from red to blue…. and the BYU fans stood proudly to their feet. The
mega-tron played the first 2 minutes of this

Have you got your T-Shirt yet? If not hurry and get them at the BYU Bookstore on campus or order it here. Do it! Do it now!

This is one reason why I am sad to not be in Provo, how awesome would it be to be running in the streets cheering like crazy with your fellow fans or going to the Provo airport at 2 in the morning to greet your players? Once again...BYU, I LOVE YOU!

Quick speech from Bronco Mendenhall at the airport.
