Every year that Utah plays BYU at home, my parents have a party at their home prior to the game. It's the highlight of the football season. And it's pretty much considered a holiday in my family. I fear the day that I marry a BYU fan. It will probably happen. Just because that would be my luck. And so, when we would take a family picture like the one below, I would be the one holding hands with a guy dressed in blue. Oh, the shame!
Since Alex is on his mission this year, we had an extra ticket to the game...and I was privy to invite someone. And believe you me, there were Terms and Conditions to who could be invited. The only Term and Condition was: No BYU fans. Of course, I had no problems with this. Because who really wants to sit next to a BYU fan anyway?
However, this T&C eliminated Mackenzi, 3/4 of my friends, and a boy that I have been going out with. And so naturally, I invited Mackenzi's ex-boyfriend.
Who better than my best friends, ex-boyfriend, really? I knew he would probably yell and curse more than my dad, and so I knew it was a wise choice.
Here is the picture that we took and sent to Mackenzi at the end of the game, with the message, "Thinking of you!":
I'm pretty sure she wants to be a Utah fan now.
