The game started at 12:30pm, so the sun was high, and it was almost warm outside! The older kids were excited that it was so warm, and thought that they "might not even NEED coats"! (we brought coats). Boy Scout Josh got us out the door with a Thermarest, hot chocolate, gloves, hats and blankets. We're always happy when Josh heads our expeditions. It always turns into a comfortable, fun time!

I'm sure our neighboring fans laughed several times at hearing me (of all people) try to explain the rules of football! "Okay, so they want to carry the ball to that white line with all the writing." (Uh, the ENDZONE?) haha.
Our seats were in the shadow of the stadium, and it was at least 10 degrees colder than the sunlit side. Yikes, it got chilly! Everyone was glad they brought their coats!
Josh was of course, cheering for the Utes, and had on his red sweater, red sunglasses and red Ironman hat!

People were pretty tolerant of his cheering. Our neighboring fans were so nice. You never know who you will get as "game neighbors", but I was glad we had some sober, polite people. They gave the kids high-fives every time there was a touchdown, and they loaned some hand-warmers to Diddles. So nice.
