Why I Don't Delete My FB Account

Sometimes I think about deleting my FB account so I won't get sucked into the ether vortex any more than I already do. But frankly I like to stalk my children there, and sometimes I am rewarded for my efforts. To wit: a former neighbor--very lovely man with unfortunate taste in teams--posted that he was happy about the U's victory last night. Well! Low and behold! Look what he let himself in for!

Geoff Cannon ‎27-10 against an FCS team is grounds for a nice game these days? I thought the U was a Pac 12 team?

Alec Cannon I thought Utah's fake punt while up 24-0 against an FCS team was really well executed.

Dylan Cannon Hey, Utah did what only 3 FCS teams did last year! Give them some credit. And, Ted, I'll take the Phil Dunphy quote, so I give thumbs down to Utah but thumbs up to you

Ann Cannon I'd like to point out I'M the one who made the above comment. I didn't realize I was on Geoff's fb account. Although I think I'll push the like button on my own brilliant comment.

(Name of neighbor redacted to protect his privacy and also to shield him from the consequences of the above-mentioned unfortunate tastes): I should have known I was opening up a can of Cannons with my comment. You're all just racist...or Uteist...I can't figure out which one. I, on the other hand don't see color, just BCS bowl wins and championships after 1984.

Alec Cannon I sometimes forget about those BCS wins. They get lost in all of those 3rd and 4th place finishes in the MWC. But I am sure you'll get tons of PAC-12 championships.

Alec Cannon Because Air Force and New Mexico aren't in the PAC-12 to beat you guys.

Hmm. I wonder what it would be like to have so many sons.

Funny. Definitely funny. Girls are only funny in an--I'm laughing, but inside I'm crying--kind of way.

Wow. So, I guess if you hate the Utes, then you're a racist. This is why every friend that I've ever had who was a Utah superfan is no longer a friend. Growing up in Ute country with a certain grandfather made this rivalry less about football and more about family a LONG time ago for us Cannon boys. Great post, Mom! Love ya!

Oh, I want to play the trash talk game. BTW, those Alec comments at the end about 3rd and 4th and New Mexico and Air Force were extra enjoyable.

My son asked me who I would want to win if Boise State played Utah. I said the best outcome would be an alien abduction of the stadium.

Bren had a jolly belly laugh when I told him the homeless U of U hat guy story.

I loved this. Read it out loud to my husband, then emailed it to my brother and brother-in-law.
