What a GAME this weekend! It was a barn burner... and there were some scary moments there. But we came out victorious! A big night for Bronco Nation indeed!

Boise or Boize?

One thing I really didn't like was listening to the ESPN announcers pronounce BOISE as BOY-ZEE all night. It drives me crazy. Then, the announcers actually had a discussion about it.... saying how you pronounce it depends on where you live in the U.S. They claim if you live in Idaho - you pronounce it Boy-see, if you live anywhere else you can pronounce it Boy-zee. Oh dear... oh dear. I don't think so!

We may need to start some sort of a letter writing campaign to ESPN - so they tell all their people how to properly pronounce the name of our great city on national television. Just an idea...???


I have great news for you... you can now buy yourself a BSU SNUGGIE! Yes, yes... you can. It's the blanket with arms! I came across this online and I had to share it with all of you. It's hysterical...

I bought my husband a SNUGGIE for Christmas - and let me tell you - they are just as comfy as they look on TV. :) This would be a hoot to wear at Bronco Stadium! You will be the envy of all of your friends! You can find them at the Bronco Shop at the Bookstore on campus, or at Bronco Shops around the area. I made some calls and found out they are $29.99! If you google it online, you can find other places to buy the Snuggie, but why not support Boise State by buying it local?
