Today was a great game for Cougar fans and yewts alike. Congrats to the yewts for making it a great game and mounting a strong comeback. Even more congrats to the Cougars for WINNING! Max Hall had a rough day, but he made the most important pass of the game .... in OVERTIME. However, the sweetest part of today's game wasn't the victory, it was the dozens of times that Lily ran up to me and shouted, "GO COUGARS!" After the game ended, we opened up the window and shouted and cheered for our neighbors. It was great to have a family member cheering on the team with me. Since this was one for the books, I'll post pictures and video of the Cougars in their sweet retro jerseys as they come. GooooooOOOOOOOOOooOOOOOOOOO Cougars!!!!
Update: As far as Max Hall's comments go, I understand the way he feels, having been antagonized by yewt fans a couple of times myself. His only experience with the rivalry is playing them in football, having his family "beered" by them, and a few other things too crude to mention on a blog. If Kat had been put through the things a few petty fans put Max's mother and wife through, I'd be pretty full of hate, too. Just remember he also ripped on the BYU fans who have no real loyalty-- who gripe at the team at the first scent of bad luck or bad play. If you think Max's comments are the worst thing you've ever heard, check out these two links from yewt players saying the SAME thing.
Or a word from a yewt on the behavior of the fans at the same game Hall was referring to last year: http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=445&sid=4886246
However, we're glad to know great, classy yewt fans. Becca and Ryan and Eric are the best!
