When BYU announced that it would be attending the Las Vegas bowl I was ecstatic since I live in Las Vegas. Being the cheap mormon that I am, I took a small initial hit when I heard the tickets to the game were a minimum of $30. However, it was well worth it for a bowl game. If I was to really think about it I was willing to travel to Utah from Vegas or Cali for a game, but the ticket price still made me think.
Anyway, my wife then presented me with the option of going to Utah early to go to my grandparents condo in Park City. The only catch was that I would miss the Las Vegas Bowl. Oh DILEMMA!! I told my wife that the one time that the bowl game is close and I could easily attend I leave for Utah. What am I thinking?
I only have three somewhat rationale thoughts in relation to this decision. First, my wife had to be in Utah on Friday at 10:30 AM so if I stayed to see BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl then I’d have to get up at the ungodly hour of 4:00 AM to get to Utah. Not going to happen. Second, I do get to spend time with my wife for our anniversary without my son in a condo in Park City. Not to mention skiing. Finally, my mother-in-law was impressed and amazed that I was willing to put my wife before a football game.
Little does she know that I’ll be watching the game regardless and call it quality time with my BYU alumnus father.
I know, I shouldn’t be worthy of posting on this site. Beat me now!!
