Red is not our color!

This is the view we had on the lawn outside our front door.
It says "GO UTES 11-0"
This one says "Utes #1"

Here it is - our red Y. The top part doesn't look as red in this picture, because Nate was trying to wash it off with hot water. It got rid of the frost, not the red. Nathan mowed the lawn after the game to get rid of the red, but some neighbors thought it was mowed off because BYU lost so miserably. They obviously don't know my husband very well - he is a die hard BYU fan, come what may. Just not into a red lawn. I didn't get my camera out before we threw away the 14 or 15 cans of red spray paint stacked neatly on the front porch. My children are so lucky they got to hear the "don't vandalize" talk throughout the day. They loved it, and were grateful for the opportunity to hear it!

Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry. I can't imagine the type of people who think that something like that is acceptable behavior.

RUDE! Someone probably thought it was funny. Pfffft.

I did notice the lawn was mowed very quickly, but I figured he'd just waited til the game was over, then wanted to get one last mowing in before it got too cold. I didn't think it was sour grapes, and I definitely didn't think it was because of tacky vandalism!
