Now, as previously mentioned, this husband of mine is obsessed with BYU. To say "BYU football" would be very exclusive at this stage of our life. Because Jimmer has taken over the household. It's pretty adorable (except when it's not and I'm stalking around the house thinking, "Are we seriously watching this game or these highlights again?" I'm coming around, but once again I think it's the obnoxious to-do lists that stop me from completely enjoying life. This post is turning out to be very therapeutic.) So what I love about Yosh's obsession, is that it brings out a side of him that is otherwise dormant. Dos examples will be presented.
#1) We stayed the night in San Diego on Friday night and as fate would have it.... we were at the same hotel as the basketball team. Yea baby! We relaxed in our room for a bit before Yosh asked the boys if they wanted to go downstairs and hang around to see if they can't catch a sighting- that's right...a Jimmer sighting! On his own, he grabbed a camera and went to the lobby. I came down a bit later just in time to catch the team walking through. Jimmer was talking with an ESPN commentator, and as he emerged from the room, Yosh put on his big boy pants, walked right up to him and confidently- ok, with minimal stuttering- said, "Hey, can my boys and I get a picture with you?" I love it! I mean, when we go to dinner I can't get him to go ask the hostess how much longer we'll be waiting. No hesitation when Jimmer is involved!
#2) At the game on Saturday, there were some definite intense moments. After a particularly thrilling one, Yosh started chanting in a very boisterous voice, "B-Y-U." It only took miliseconds for the crowd to catch on and join in. Yosh was the trend-setter- for a few seconds at least- and that's not something that's going to happen very often. Love seeing him in these situations!
(PS We were at Target the night before the game and Yosh also decided that we should make a sign for the game- another side of his that only shows itself in these type of situations.
I have to admit, I kind of feel like the sign was anti-climatic. It's as if it reads "See Jimmer, Be Jimmer, ...." S should be something huge and shocking. But it wasn't. Next time we'll have to tap in a little further to our creative side.)
