RISE AND SHOUT...

Saturday was easily one of the best days of my life. Eric and I had Tori watch Ave so we could have a romantic day, and last minute, we decided to buy tickets to the BYU/OU game-mainly just to see the new Cowboys stadium. The first of the day, Eric took me to this awesome restaurant in Southlake called Brio Tuscan Grille. YUM! I totally forgot to take pics, cause the food was so good. Plus, he had done some work for them, so the GM took care of our meal....sweet! After walking around the shops of Southlake, E and I met up with some friends and headed to the BYU game, which we thought was going to suck. Thanks to my dad and our good friends, the Boam's, I grew up an avid cougar fan-hardly ever missing a game. But since leaving UT, I haven't been to a game for a while. Last year, Eric took me to the TCU game...yikes. I have to say, after that massacre, my cougar pride took a hit. But............ THEY HAVE TOTALLY REDEEMED THEMSELVES!!!!! It was the best BYU game I have ever been to. Oh, and Tammy....I changed my font to blue just for you! Playing cards with the Coil's....like our standing "seats?"

We found us a nice spot surrounded by OU fans:)




Here's our few of the 60 yard HD screen! Hahaha, we had to squat down to see the whole thing, but Jill and I snuck down and got actual seats for about 1/2 the game.









The cougar section...I have to say, I was so proud of our representation. We held our own, and got pretty dang loud. Some OU fans next to us were like, "Wow, those BYU fans are impressive."




As soon as we realized OU missed that last field goal, we ran over to join all the BYU fans so we could celebrate without getting killed! This is my, "Oh my gosh, I'm so excited I can't handle it" face !

Kathleen, that is cool you guys were there! Half of Ben's family went down there for the game and we ended up not going and totally regret it! Who knew the Cougars could pull it off?! ha ha. Too bad they aren't getting any credit since Sam Bradford got injured. Anyway, looks like you guys had fun!
