Utah 31 Alabama 17
When we pulled up to the SUPER DOME it was thrilling to see all the Utah fans lining up to go inside. Utah had a FABULOUS fan showing!
The second best part of this game (second to rolling over the tide!) Was the pregame party they had for us. There was great live music, both the Bama band and Utah band came and pepped every one up. The girls had their caricatures drawn and our faces painted, airbrushed U tattoos, We were green screened onto the field (I hope to eventually scan those pics in) And a large open place for Jacob to dance, run, stomp, crawl and get all his energy out which eventually led to a nap in the 3rd quarter. He loved the cheerleaders and got some good flirting in with the Alabama squad. He enjoyed being the entertainment and he would do his little stomp dance.
As we walked in Alabama had all sorts of pennants and sweatbands, fingers, noise makers and I said to one of the Sugar Bowl members I was looking for ours. She sheepishly said they had spelled something wrong and were going to remove all of Alabamas so it would be fair. It ended up that they just put Utahs stuff out and everything had Uthes written on it. Check ebay, you may be able to get your own Uthes pennant
What an amazing atmosphere. Like nothing I have ever experienced!
After the game we returned to the hotel to a rockstar welcoming. It was the best thing the fans could have done for these players. Getting off the bus to this!
It was thrilling to see the fans show this kind of support for the team!
We had grand plans of celebrating the night away and started in the hospitality room but with the task of packing looming and an 8:00 departure we pooped out on our own party
