Yesterday I got to be the honorary football coach for the Weber State vs Eastern Washington game. I wasn't too impressed to begin with, partly because I am not that into sports. I don't mind a game every now and then, but I don't sit down and watch anything on TV. It was actually quite a bit of fun. I took my dad, and we got there about 10:15 am, which the handout stated we were to be there. We had VIP parking and parked in the first row of the stadium lot, just a few steps from the entrance. We ended up waiting for over an hour for the girl who was supposed to escort us around showed up. She was an hour behind and so we didn't get to spend a lot of time eating in the suites before I had to get down to the field. Here is a picture my dad got of me being introduced as an honorary coach (I'm the one on the right!):
I also got to participate in the coin toss, or other words, I watched them do the coin toss:
We ended up watching the first half from the sidelines and got to walk back and forth across the edge of the field to keep up with the players. Yes, while very cool, it is not easy to watch the game from there. They did pretty pathetically the first half, probablly a bit too confident being ranked number 8 in their division nationally. The second half was much better, and I screamed until my voice hurt. Unfortunately, Weber lost 26 to 33, and they almost had it tied up by the end of the game until they lost the ball. Oh well. It was so much fun to hang out with my dad. Here he is watching the game from the sidelines. It was a beautiful day for football game!
Thanks for going with me Dad! I sure had a good time!
I still haven't heard about the job at the Davis Campus. I guess that I just need to be patient. I did get a great compliment from the Vice Provost who responded to a thank you e-mail I sent. He told me that I conducted myself with poise and aplomb. I was greatly appreciative of that. Hopefully I will hear something soon.
Lots of love to all!!!
