Yesterday was the big Huskies game against BYU. I love dressing up in Husky gear and being surrounded by fellow fans. There is such a feeling of unity and camaraderie. I know that sounds weird, but I can't help it. I did not feel like there was any question as to where my loyalties ran as I grew up here in Washington (though not a native) and graduated from the UW. (It was kind of a no brainer) As we sat amongst the many BYU fans I started to wonder if by rooting for the Huskies I was denying my churchy side. Don't worry, it wasn't a life shattering, list the pros and cons moment, but I did feel slightly torn. I think that it was more difficult for Jeff to decided who he was going to root for because he graduated from BYU even though he was born and raised here in Washington. I was pretty certain that he had given into the heathen side when he purchased a Husky jersey at the store right before the game. Needless to say, my loyalties to my alma mater won through, and although we didn't win, we put up a good fight.
Above are a few of the pictures that I took to commemorate this splendid day.
