BYU vs Hawaii
There were a lot of questions heading into this game. Benched starting QB and taking a chance on a true freshman to lead the Cougar offense. Could the D hold against a very good Hawaii offense? Would the Cougarettes be awesome again? So many questions. I was prepared though. I came with good energy and was ready to Rise & Shout.
Saturday was an early start after a late night. There was the Cougar 5K Run and then the Parade & Breakfast. Such a beautiful day and fun with friends. We then hit the trail up to the Y in the early afternoon. It is a tradition to Climb the Y at least once during the year. It always happens at Homecoming for us. I have not missed it since 1995. Every. Single. Year. Some traditions are that important.
We were able to attend some pre-game activities and even made it down to the field. Was fun to cheer with friends and the atmosphere was electric last night. Other than some wind at times the weather was perfect. The Wilson Era has arrived. That was a great game and fun to see an old school offensive beat down. After the game we hit Village in. Another tradition. I called them Friday to let them know we were coming. Filled the restaurant at 1 am. French Toast, bacon, OJ and hot chocolate after a win is a great way to celebrate.
This morning came to early. We took the back way up to church in Alpine behind Timpanogos. So beautiful up there. An inspiring morning. I bore my testimony along with my daughter today. It was so good to see old friends and many of the YW I worked with when we lived here. I miss them. Heading home now. Can’t wait to see my fur babies and sleep in my own bed.
Final Score of the game 49-23 BYU dominates. Go Cougars! More of this please. Cougarettes did deliver.
