Utes Parade

Utah paraded down State Street today and was met by huge crowds. I was very surprised by how many people turned out to greet them. At the rally Mayor Becker, President Young, Congressman Matheson, Coach Whittingham, Brian Johnson and Louie Sakoda all spoke. Governor Huntsman concluded and even called Florida out. He told the crowd that he was going to call Florida's governor and tell them that Utah will meet them anytime, in any stadium in America to determine which team is really #1.

A fitting celebration to an incredible season. Go Utes!

Nice. I do have to agree that there were a lot more people there than I thought there would be. The other speech I liked was from the MWC president. I thought this was going to be worse than it was. Wait to go Utes!

Yes Mr. Tenman, I saw you there trying to dog out early as Kyle was talking. I tried to grab your attention but you were too smooth. :)

I wanted to go SO bad. A bunch of people from my office walked down (we're on 100 S 500 E) but with the smog and the air quality, my asthma wasn't happy about it.

Love your pics!
