My Little Cougar And Me
From my very earliest memories I’ve been a BYU fan. I remember being just a young boy standing on my feet at what was then Cougar Stadium singing the chorus to the fight song.
So Rise and Shout, the Cougars are out
Along the trail to fame and glory.
Rise and shout, our cheers will ring out,
As you unfold your vict’ry story.
On you go to vanquish the foe
For Alma Mater’s sons and daughters.
As we join in song, in praise of you, our faith is strong.
We’ll raise our colors high in the blue,
And cheer our Cougars of BYU.
Being the Cougar fan that I am, Coleman has had an array of BYU gear literally from birth. Hats, shirts, nightgowns…whatever I could find with a Y on it. And, I have to say that I loved every minute of sharing this little piece of me with my little boy.
It makes me excited for all the other things I’m going to be able to share with him. Interests, beliefs, or even just time are all things I can’t wait to enjoy with Cole.
Now, I realize we might not like all the same things. In the end, he may not even be a Cougar fan. In fact, there’s always a chance that he could become a Utah fan–and cheer for BYU’s dreaded rival. But, at the end of the day that’s okay too.
As long as we’re sharing, I’ll be happy.
