Congrats to the Boise State Broncos

Back in December, some co-workers and I traveled to Boise for a client engagement. The day we arrived was close to the same day they announced the Boise State Broncos were going to be in the Fiesta Bowl. In a relatively small town like Boise, this was big news. Everyone talked about it, and so did we. In fact, one day, we even ventured to the campus to see the infamous Blue Field. No one was around, and we actually got to walk on the field and marvel at its blueness. I asked many cab drivers that week if the Denver Broncos or the Boise State Broncos were first, but no one knew. It intrigued me because the teams share the same name, colors and mascot. One of them has to be copying the other.

Last night, I watched the Fiesta Bowl between Boise State and Oklahoma. It was one of the best football games I've ever seen. The multiple comebacks (from both teams), the trick plays and good ol' American Underdog Story made for a helluva game. If you like football and you missed it - you shouldn't have. ;-)
