Heads or Tails

When we moved to Washington Brandon wanted to get Direct TV for the sole purpose of watching BYU football. I didn't know this but I guess you need to have a south facing apartment to position the satellite dish. We have a north facing apartment. Needless to say Brandon was a little sad that we only got to listen to the games off the internet.

But last Saturday was the big game and we had to take drastic measures to help support our alma mater. Our friend Nate called every sports bar in Seattle to see who could show the game and finally found it... Heads or Tails. There were about 8 or 9 of us Cougar fans in this cold and drafty one room bar. We wish the team would have played better. What was up with Max Hall throwing all those interceptions? Anyways, all the bar goers were very friendly and helped cheer for BYU. One of the regulars even jumped off his stool to come over and say, "I thought Mormons don't drink." We assured him it was only soda and that we weren't drinking. Maybe next year the Cougs will play a little better. Here are some pictures.

I hope Brandon and you are not too upset with the lost of BYU to Utah. I think you can have the consolation that at least the conference is represented in the BCS bowl game.

That is so great that Brandon is done with all his tests! What a relief! I miss you! Utah was great but I cried the whole way back to Arizona so I'm starting to think it almost makes it worse to go back and remember how wonderful it all is. Although I don't think I could ever turn down a chance to be with family! Are you going home for Christmas? Have you found a new job yet?

When TJ and I moved to Colorado we had the same problem with Direct TV and facing north as well. We had to watch the sorry Max Hall show at some friends house.

We found the same problem in Arizona! If we had known this before we moved all of our stuff in, I bet we would have looked for a place facing the other direction!! With technology these days, I'm surprised they can't overcome this!
