November 26, 2010
I can honestly say that I found a treasure the other day. I was looking through my wooden chest (seriously... I'm not joking here) and I found a bag that my Mom gave me not long ago. The bag contained a variety of items that belonged to my Dad... most of which I had seen many times over the years. I was going through some papers when an old magazine slid out. I picked it up, turned it over, and studied the cover in disbelief. I found my Dad's copy of the game program from the 1981 BYU vs. Utah game. As I began thumbing through the pages, a ticket stub fell out. I then realized that my Dad had saved the program and the ticket stub from the first Holy War played in my lifetime. I was about 7 months old when this game was played... and yes, BYU won 56-28 (Go Cougs!). This all happened last Sunday... which, in case you are wondering, was November 21, 2010. Why is does this matter? Look at the date on the ticket stub.
