Is it possible that Ann Cannon's brain--the brain that used to get her into shouting, swearing and (sometimes) spitting contests at BYU games--has been sucked from her skull by a gang of brain-sucking aliens? Is that why she's all, there's a game this weekend?
How is it possible that I don't care very much anymore about this rivalry? Hello. I was the girl who for years and years and years used to flip off Rice Stadium every time I drove past it in much the same style that Bret and Jermaine flipped off the Australian Embassy in Flight of the Conchords. I didn't care if my kids were watching md. In fact, I rewarded them with trips to 7-11 for Slurpees if they did the same.
I know! I have super awesome mothering skills!
But now? Wow. I mean I still hope BYU wins, but I hate what all the conference shifting (which is driven totally by money) has done to this rivalry. And (actually) to BYU football itself. I wasn't totally happy when we left the WAC for the MountainWest conference. But I got used to it. And at least there was a conference title to play for. But this independent thing?
It just ain't working for me.
