All right. I said in my last post that I was off to write, but I would be remiss if I didn’t post something about the Fiesta Bowl. Our local college football team, the Boise State Broncos, were 12-0 this year, and they were chosen to play in the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe against the Oklahoma Sooners.
I will make it clear at the start that I am not a big football fan, mostly because it is too cold in those bleachers for too many of those games. And I don’t enjoy watching sports on TV with the exception of figure skating and the Olympics (summer and winter). But when an entire city is swept up in Fiesta Bowl fever, it’s hard not to catch some of it. I may even watch the game tonight.
Even a non-sports, non-football gal like me knows that the Sooners are a big, big, team, and most people don’t know who the heck the Boise Broncos are. Well, I’m hoping by the time the game is done, they’ll have the answer. We are definitely the underdogs, but I’m hoping we’ll do ourselves proud, even if we don’t win.
Both of my daughters and their husbands, plus friends and one father-in-law, are currently in Arizona, one of more that 20,000 Boiseans who have traveled south to see the game tonight.
