I have never been a big football fan. My dad and brothers watched it nonstop. Lee and his dad watched it nonstop. I think I just rebelled because I was so sick of having it in my face and ears for so many years. Watching it at McKinleyville High was miserable because it was so cold. All of a sudden I am interested in football, well just BYU football. I know all about Max Hall, Austin Collie, Harvey Unga and a few others. I attribute this to three reasons:
1. I have lots of free time. Yes, there comes a time in life you are actually looking for new things to be interested in. Novel thought, huh, young mothers?
2. I love reality tv. Mainly competitions like Top Model, Project Runway, Design Star, etc. Football is a great reality competition.
3. Alex's boyfriend is a football player. Okay, that probably is the reason I started looking at the team. He has had a competition for the kicker start and so I started reading the BYU football page and got more interested. (In my defense, I was a total Cougar fan when I attended BYU!) Today I found a video with an interview with Mitch at http://www.byucougars.com/football under the videos section for day 19 of Fall Camp.
We will be up at the lake Saturday when they play Iowa for their first game. Lee wants Alex to have her cell phone with her so we can get updates. He's glad that for once I want to watch the games with him. Go Cougars!
