Reason 106: The Boys of Fall

Well, Kenny Chesney, you've stolen my heart again.

I've listened to Kenny for about seven years.  He always impresses me with his real life topics.  I had heard about his newest song "Boys of Fall" and always forgot to look it up.  But today, as I sit on my couch instead of in statistics compliments of food poisoning,  I saw it on CMT (Yes- I do watch the Country Music Channel. But only when my opinionated-country-judging-husband is gone haha).  


"One of the things that caught me is how fast 27 years has gone by.  There are so many people that live vicariously through you.  I would give anything tonight to jump in one of these uniforms with you guys. That feeling goes away, it goes away and it doesn't come every Friday night.  It comes when you get married,  it comes when your child is born.  So you get, you just don't get it every Friday night.  You will miss that more than anything in the world."

This is the quote from the coach at the beginning.  Well said.  All of it, well said.

"It's I got your number, I got your back when your back's against the wall/
You mess with one man you got us all/
The boys of fall."


This just really got me thinking.  I can't believe it's already been 2 1/2 years since graduation.  High School was pretty awesome and I am proud to be an alumni of Dixie High.  I also miss my boys at American Fork from last years football season.  I was privileged enough to work as their student athletic trainer for football season and LOVED it.

And, of course, I love working with BYU Football this season.  Tomorrow?  Nevada.  Looking forward to challenging the Wolfpack.
