That may be the measure of our lives." - Toni Morrison

"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

are you ready for some football?

Last week BYU beat Oklahoma. That's a pretty big deal. There were mobs of people running through the streets, honking car horns, screaming, etc. for three hours after the game ended. Provo was in a state of uproar. It was amazing.
I love college football because beautifully amazing things like that happen on a weekly basis.
Here are some other amazing moments:

BYU vs. Utah 2007. 4th Quarter. 1:13 left. 4th and 18. BYU has the ball and desperately needs a first down.

USC vs. Clemson 2006. 4th Quarter. 00:18 left.
If Clemson makes the field goal, the game goes into overtime.

BYU vs. Utah 2006. 4th Quarter. 00:03 left. Score: Y-27, U-31.
BYU has the ball and must get a touchdown to win.

Here is a picture of that catch:
these moments are what football is all about.
