Game 2 of the Boise State season is in the books and it appears we have a “for real” defense this year.Â Very exciting!Â If the offense can clean up some mistakes (if you can call only scoring 48 points a mistake) then we’ll really be in business.
Any way here are a selection of photos I took at that game.Â As always, click each one to go to the Flickr page to view them larger if you so desire.
Remember that defense I was talking about? Well notice if you will in this picture that there are 4 Miami offensive linemen blocking NOBODY. I’m fairly certain that wasn’t how Miami drew that particular play up…
I’m including this one… I know it violates some photography rules, but dammit, that is an outstanding, unmolested gradient fade. Orange to blue. Personally, I like this photo.
We’ve made it. The day 9 full months in the making is finally here.
Boise State vs Oregon.Â On the Blue. Kickoff in exactly 10 hours.
I have broken out my good luck gear.Â See, this is the gear that won the Fiesta Bowl in 2007.Â It is the good luck orange coaches polo and orange Bronco hat.Â It worked at the Fiesta Bowl.Â It worked at Oregon last year.Â 2 years ago, I forgot the hat when we went to Washington.Â So that loss is on me.
More than just Boise State v Oregon (if it is possible to be bigger than that) it is the official kickoff of the football season.Â I cannot describe how happy that makes me.Â I get to wak e up on Saturday to the dulcet tones of Corso and Herbstreit on College Gameday.Â I get to park my ass on the couch and watch 4 games at once for about 16 hours.Â That may well be my definition of heaven.
I’m bringing my camera tonight so watch this space for any good pics I may capture.Â However, if Boise State loses, you may not hear from me for a while.
C’mon Broncos.Â Let’s do this.
