The Boise State/Wyoming game according to an 8-year old

I had the opportunity to go to the game today. I know a season ticket holder who came down to Eugene and watched the UGA season opener with me on the big screen. 

And he later offered a seat at a home game of my choice if I came down to Boise during football season. 

I also happened to make a fine young Boise State fan out of my 8-year old nephew (who also lives in Eugene). Many times during last season and this one, he commented on how great it would be to go watch a Boise State game live, in person. I assured him it would happen, someway somehow. 

And while I was about to go to Boise for this game and for Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to stay home. I gave up my seat so that my nephew could go instead. I don't regret it in the least bit. 

He got back from the game a little bit ago. And in his words, "That was the best and shortest hours of my life!" 

He thoroughly enjoyed his first ever game at Bronco Stadium. 

It reminds me of when I was a kid. I simply enjoyed watching the game and I enjoyed watching my team play. It was even better when they won. It didn't matter who they played, how bad they played, it just mattered that was my team and I was going to cheer them on no matter what. 

I'm glad my nephew got that experience. These are the memories we'll carry with us as long as we can.

And it taught me a lot... most importantly: enjoy the game for what it is and enjoy it even more when your team wins, regardless of whether the opponent is deemed good in the eyes of anybody else and regardless of the final score.
