Today was the annual “Cougar Kick-off” for the BYU fall sports. The athletic department hosts an event where women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, track and field, and — oh yeah — football players were all available to sign posters, hats, shirts, footballs, etc. We made the hour-long drive down to Provo with the girls tonight. I’ve met a lot of the football team through the Thursday’s Heroes program, so I honestly wasn’t that excited about that part. I wanted to have my girls meet their collegiate counterparts in soccer and volleyball. However, after getting down there, they didn’t seem to care about the athletes. Instead, they really wanted a picture with the … cheerleaders.
Sigh. I had so much hope for them.
