For years I have witnessed family members, friends, and complete strangers go crazy over sports. Myself never really got into it. I never followed a team or really knew anything about any players. I'm happy to report that this has changed.
It all started when I bought season tickets to BYU football. The first couple games I had lots of questions, but I slowly picked up on the rules, and tatics. I even did some research on the players and read about their positions, strengths, and life in general. I loved going to the games, I loved the feeling of being in the stadium, I loved it all. I especially LOVED it when they won. It was a tough start but they eventually pulled through and ended the season well.
Time went on, I kept them on my mind. They kept winning games, I would go when my mom would let me use her pass. The love for those boys just grew and grew and Noah Hartsock and Kyle Collinsworth earned their place in my heart. If I couldn't go to a game I was watching it on TV or listening on the radio. This was becoming my team, my first one ever.
I didn't know what was wrong with me. Never before had my emotions been effected by a sports team. But I was and still am completely emotionally invested in this team. I can't get enough of them. Today I spent my lunch hour watching their first game in the tournament, I was nervous. But don't worry they won. But now they have to play New Mexico, and now more than ever I want them to win.
So there, I have admitted to it. I love BYU sports. You can bet that I will be purchasing season tickets to both football and basketball next year, and they wont be in the student section, I want a seat I can call my own that will be waiting for me each game.
