BYU/UCLA


Last week-end Dad and I flew out to LA for the BYU game against UCLA in the Rose Bowl. We got there Friday night, rented a car and drove to Donnie and Janet in Irvine. We borrowed t-shirts and hats from Donnie. He gets a new t-shirt and hat each year for BYU. They are his lucky t-shirt and hat. We got to wear the last 2 years of lucky shirts. Saturday morning I cooked Dad breakfast consisting of 4 egg whites and a cup of oatmeal, no sugar, no butter, only 1 raspberry for flavor. He had no beverage. As he choked it down I enjoyed my 4 egg whites with oatmeal with honey, peanut butter and 6 raspberries mixed in. I drank it down with an iced cold glass of orange juice. Dad has been so strict with his diet that he has lost a ton of weight. We went for a jog before this feast. After a long talk with Donnie and Janet we drove up to Pasadena expecting to hit traffic so we left a couple of hours early but it was smooth sailing all the way. We found ourselves sitting in the parking lot 2 hours early amist a throng of UCLA fans tailgating. Dan, having lost so much weight, and so tiny was scared to get out of the car for fear of his life. We enjoyed the game. Unfortunately BYU lost. We had an awesome time. Thanks, Dad! After we finally got out of Pasadena we found a mexican dive near the airport and ruined a week of dieting. We left early the next morning. Hopefully next time we can leave the game with a victory. Good luck BYU. We will forever be your fans.

Karyn,Mike,
Sorry then about Utah beating the crap out of UCLA, I only wish that BYU could have done it, but it looks like they are having some trouble this year so far...
