Thanksgiving weekend was fantastic this year! Nick was out of school Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and Megan was off from the Ritz on Saturday and Sunday. Our friends, the Montierth's, had us over for a great Thanksgiving dinner with tons of great food, especially the great pies.
Because Megan was off on Saturday and Sunday, we decided to go to our favorite place in Florida. Bonifay. Never heard of it? All the better for us; we're happy to have it all to ourselves! Great family, endless fun things to do, and pig outs on a daily basis. There is no telling how many times we've gone to bed with a stomach ache. It probably happens more often than not.
For those who don't know, Nick and Megan are big time college football fans. We LOVE going to games wherever and whenever we can. Our favorite teams are the Utes and the Seminoles, so in turn we hate, despise, loathe (pick your verb that's the opposite of like or respect) the Cougars and the Gators. In Michigan we had the opportunity to go to the Big House to watch Utah play Michigan
With a family in Bonifay as crazy about their college football as we are, and with the FSU vs. Florida game on ABC and the Utah vs. BYU game on CBS College Sports simultaneously, Saturday was a great day that saw us sitting in front of the TV switching between both games and Nick Mecham and Nic Bell yelling and screaming at both games all day long, and both being hoarse after the games.
The Utah vs. BYU game on the other hand caused much anxiety, especially for Nick who couldn't stand to watch the Utes as they continually failed to get the ball into the endzone. In the second half, the Utes finally attempted to buckle down and actually play the game. Somehow, someway, the Utes pulled it out in the end and won 17-16 making it a fantastic college football weekend in the Mecham and Bell households.
It was a great game with a great, albeit lucky, play/block at the end of the game. It's a great rivalry and it's too bad that it won't be the last game of the season anymore. See you in September? GO UTES!! F-L-O-R-I-D-A S-T-A-T-E WOOO!!!! Until next year Cougars and Gators!
