Mountain West Conference Champs

Congrats to BYU for the win over Utah today and snagging the Mountain West Conference Championship title! Second year in a row! We got to go to the game and it was so much fun! The last couple minutes did a number to my heart, but the good ol' Cougs pulled through with a touchdown and finally beat the Utes at home. It was the last game we'll get to attend for a while, so it was a lot of fun to be there. Sophie spent the better part of the game in the President's Lounge downstairs where it was warmer and there were plenty of balloons to play with. She brought three of them home and has been wandering around with them ever since.

And then, as if winning today weren't enough, the men's basketball beat #6 Louisville last night in Vegas and are playing the #1 team in the nation, North Carolina, tonight. If we win this, it will be the greatest weekend in Cougar sports history in a long time! We love it!

GO COUGARS! We didn't afford tickets but sure had a nice time watching it at home. What a heart-thumper the last two minutes were. How did you get into the President's Lounge? Did you get to see much of the game?

Becky you'll be impressed, I actually watched this entire game (per my agreement with Jordan one book = one game and this was it) against my will I must admit it was pretty exciting to beat the U, but only in the 4th quarter! Go Cougars!

All be boys in our family watched while the girls shopped and called for updates. Did you see the Basketball game? So sad we didn't win that one either :( But still a GREAT game!

Lucky you!! JAmes was SO mad that he couldn't be there or even watch it for that matter. HE was just watching the scores that will pop up at the bottom of another game. He saw that there was like less than a minute left and we were down by one point. Then he saw the final score a few minutes later that we had made a touch down. He started yelling, "Oh my gosh! WE WON!!! WE WON!!!" and was SO EXCITED. I know he really wanted to see it. (: WAY TO GO COUGARS!

Paul and I don't really get into the games, but it looks like you guys had a great time! Isn't it funny how much kids love balloons. So cute!

See you soon!
