Benny has been counting down the days until he would finally see his first, in person, football game. My brother promised to take him to see his beloved Utes play and tonight was the night. Benny went to bed last night so excited. He kept saying, “tomorrow, my first Utah game, my first Utah game.” He spent the morning making a football field in his Minecraft world that was complete with the Utah and ASU logo. He spent the afternoon decked out in his Utah jersey playing football with his brothers and friends. His day was dedicated to the Utes.
When he had finally asked, “how long until the game” enough times we headed down to tailgate to torture him some more, making him wait another couple of hours til game time.
Uncle Scott not only bought him his ticket,
but also a special surprise, a Utes Rally Mask.
After playing catch for awhile and posing for a few more pictures, it was finally time to head to the game.
I was offered a ticket to the game and decided to head home instead. As soon as I got home, I had some serious regret. I turned on the game and instead of lying on the couch I really wish I was there watching my Benny boy take in his first game. It’s pouring rain, but I’m sure he’s having a blast watching this exciting game.
Thank you, Scott, for making his day! (actually his
week, month… probably his year!)
I can’t wait to hear about his first game.
