The Utah/BYU rivalry runs deep in my family. My mom graduated from BYU, while my dad is University of Utah alumni. Needless to say college football season makes for a very tense household at the Nielson residence.
My brothers and I inherited my dad’s love of the University of Utah. I guess we know a good thing when we see it. My nephew, Carter, however doesn’t. Yesterday on our drive to the country I was trying to entertain him by pointing out silly buildings.
“Look, Buddy, Utah Rocks.”
“No, Aunt Sarah, it doesn’t. BYU does.”
“Um… I was just pointing out the rock gift shop, not college teams, but Utah does rock. That’s where I go.”
