oh boy-se state!

(that may be the cheesiest blog post title ever)
Did anyone else see the Fiesta Bowl tonight? WOW. Probably one of the best college football games I've ever seen. Seriously. Before tonight, I had never heard of Jared Zabransky, but if you'd seen me cheering for him in the final seconds of regulation when he completed a pass on fourth-and-18 for a touchdown to send the game into overtime, you might've mistaken me for his mother...or a Boise State fan at the very least.

I wanted to share my excitement with someone (my husband went to bed early to recover from the New Year's Eve party we attended), so I called my friend, Jeff. It ended up that he was asleep too (recovering from the same party). He sounded so confused that I would be calling him at 11:30pm to celebrate the outcome of a college football game, so I told him "goodnight" and decided to just share my joy with the anonymous blogworld instead. If you saw the game, you know what I'm talking about. If you didn't, you can read the story here.

So, Boise State is now 13-0. The only other undefeated team is Ohio State, but unfortunately these two teams won't have a chance to go head-to-head for the National Title because of the messed-up BCS bowl system. I won't go there though because I don't have an opinion about it.

Happy New Year!

jay and i watched it and WOW is right. it's not often you get to see 10 trick plays in a row! how about that hook and ladder play or the statue of liberty. haven't seen those plays run since 4th grade recess.

seeing "kristen" pop up on my caller id immediately sent my mind spinning to some emergency...margot in the hospital or worse. nope, just kristen wanting to chat football at 11:45 on a work night. hello, out-of-body experience.

Excuse me? Is this my friend, Kristen, Kristen Mc-C-l-a-i-n, blog? I had to check around the page before I would believe it was really her. And still, I wonder if some mysterious football fan accidentaly ended up with her post on Kristen's? Yes, that must be it!

I attended Boist State and watched the game with many other fans. We know this team, and are happy to see them gain the acceptance they deserve. Go Gaters!
