Oh, nothing much. Just my totally awesome husband bringin' down the house at the University of Utah game!
A few weeks ago Mark told me that he had entered his and my name into a drawing at the University of Utah credit union for a chance to "shoot for loot". If they draw your name they give you tickets to the game and during one of the time-outs you get the chance to go down and shoot for loot. Well they drew MY name and called me and I said "can we pretend you drew my husbands name instead and he could make the shots for me?" and the guy said YES! I couldn't believe that he let us do that, but I was SO SO grateful that it could be him and not me! So we got to go to the game and about 12 minutes into the first quarter we started to make our way down to the court. He had 30 seconds to make 3 baskets. A lay up, a free throw and a three-pointer. If you shoot the lay up you get $50 and a chance to shoot a free throw, if you make the free throw you get $100 and a chance to shoot a 3 pointer and if you make the 3 pointer then you get $150 so there is a chance to win $300. He was really hoping that he could make the lay up and the free throw really fast so he could have a chance to shoot more times for the 3 pointer if he needed it. Did he need the time? See for yourself! (sorry for the screaming lunatic in the background....wait a minute, that's ME!)
Seriously, is he INCREDIBLE or what? There is absolutely nothing this guy can't do. I was so proud of him and it was so much fun! He seemed nervous until he got the ball in his hands, then he just looked like he was taking care of business, and that's just what he did! The guys that were helping us with where to go and rebounding the balls said that's the first time anyone has made them all in a row like that and asked him if he played college ball, they were so impressed. We figured out he made all 3 shots in 12 seconds, wouldn't it be nice if we could make $300 in 12 seconds every day?!! The very next morning oddly enough is when the laptop went from broken spacebar to dead keyboard and when I called him in tears he said we could use his winnings to buy a new computer, which is sitting under the tree until Christmas day. Husband, I love you and you totally ROCK!!! You want to watch it again, don't you? I know, me too! Here I'll save us some trouble and put it right here again. :)
