Feelin' the Fever!

The UTAH football fever that is! It's 12:30 in the morning and we just finished watching the game, what a game it was! Definitely worth staying up late for. During the last quarter of the game when they were talking about the wind picking up just right for Utah, Ryan made the comment that "President Hinkley must be cheering extra hard for the utes tonight." I thought that was quite appropriate :) And then at the end when Johnson tied the game we cheered so loud that Norris (who had been sleeping upstairs) ran downstairs to see what the ruckus was all about. What a fun season this has been, we are counting the days until we are home to cheer on the Utes as they crush the Cougars!
Ryan has really gotten into the team spirit this year. He latest goal is to learn the Utah school song which he has been practicing daily. He even added the music as his ringtone :)
Oh and to top off a lovely evening we quite enjoyed the Vice Presidential debate. Can I just say, I Love Joe Biden! Ryan and I were the biggest Romney supporters but Obama was a close second so now our loyalty is for team Barak. (By the way, I know some people are sensistive about talking openly about political matters, and while I am no political expert by any means, I feel like we shouldn't be afraid to share our thoughts and opinions- no matter how liberal they may be :) Anyway, I thought the best part came after Palin (who is a fine lady) pointed out yet again that she is a mother and because of that can connect with the average American. I am so glad that Biden made the comment that even though he isn't a mother he still knows what it's like to be a single parent after his wife and child were killed in an accident and to wonder if his other kids would make it. Way to go Joe Biden! I grew up with a stay at home Dad and feel strongly that men should get just as much respect as women do for being parents. We're in this together right?
Whewww, okay I'm done with my ranting and soap-boxing. It's going to be an exciting next couple of months between football and politics, that's for sure :)

Ya know, knowing of Ryan's love for the Utes makes me like him even more! That's great that you guys will be home when they play BYU. We will definitely have to get together.

Who are you? A Ute fan, a liberal...do I know you? Just kidding, although I'm not sure how Dad's gonna react to you bleeding red now :-)

You get to go to the game?! I am sooo jealous! I would love to go! I'd be wearing a different color, of course. ;) I love that you even made a ticker for it. That is just awesome. Brad's dad is a U fan all the way. After the Y pulling it out at the last minute these last few years, I fear for the year when they do lose. He will probably talk about for the forever...

Well at least you are Utah fans. Here is my political view... BOOOO Obama. There I said it. Ha Ha. I really don't care that much though.

Hey man I'm with you on the whold Obama thing but i'm really not happy with either candidate though. I thought Palin made a good point when she said that th Obama campaign needs to stop focusing on the past Bush administration and more on the future like they claim, but I'm sold on either party yet.
