Alas, we went up to get BBQ take-out and it took so long, we missed most of the episode.
I couldn't even get him the one thing he really wanted for his birthday!
Oh, well. Next year.
Happy Birthday, Baby!
(This is where a normal wife would gush about how great her husband is and how she can't live without him and he's the love of her life and blah, blah, blah . . . oh, ugh. My gag reflex is extremely sensitive these days.
Oh, wait . . .
All that stuff is true.

Remember last year's game?
Last year really sucked.
But this year . . .
Oh, THIS YEAR!
To say it was a tense game would be an understatement. And I have to give Mike credit; he figured we were going to lose, but he was in a pretty good mood anyway.
He kept cheering when the refs would give BYU a good call.
It's like an alien pod-person was sitting next to me.
The game didn't go so well for Utah in the first half. Actually, for the first 3 quarters.BYU was ahead at the end of the 3rd quarter 0-13.
Mike has always said that God is a Notre Dame fan. And since Notre Dame humiliated us so completely earlier this year, I think He must have been giving us some redemption for that failure.
How do I know?
Because the Utes scored 17 points in the 4th quarter.
So . . . the score is 17-16 and BYU has the ball. All they have to do is get within field goal range and the game is theirs.
A VERY TENSE, NAIL-BITING, I THINK I'M GOING TO THROW-UP THAT DELCIOUS COWBOY CORNDOG I ATE EARLIER MOMENT.
BYU sets up the ball, preparing to kick a field goal, 1 second is left on the play clock, WHEN . . .
BRANDON BURTON blocks the field goal attempt!!! I literally think my heart stopped beating.
I kept waiting for the officials to tell us it hadn't really happened. That we didn't really just win the game with a blocked field goal attempt with 1 second left.
But it did happen.
The Utes defeat BYU 17-16.GO UTES! And with that victory, the regular season comes to an end. Not a bad record for the Utes: 10-2.
Mike thinks we'll be going to the Las Vegas Bowl.
We'll see if he's right.
