Am I a bulldog or a caveman?



Well it depends on the phase of my life ...

Anyone who knew me in high school would say that I was a bulldog through and through. Some have even speculated that my blood was green. I might have been a bit overboard with my school pride but I loved Provo High.

I started teaching and coaching in American Fork in 2003. My first year I coached the ninth grade team. The next year I coahced the sophomore team and my third year I coached the JV team. That means that I coached the same girls for thee years straight.

When I was the sophomore coach at AF we played Provo High. I remember one of my basketball girls asking me if I was going to cheer for them when we played Provo High. I kinda looked at her and was like - of course I am, I'm your coach. I did have to think about if for a second.

As time went on and I spent more time with these girls, my loyalties to Provo High weakened and I became a Caveman. I even know the school song. These are my girls - the only three girls from that original group that made it through four years of Lady Cavemen basketball. I had them over to my house the other night and we talked about their futures. I kinda grew up again with these girls.



I could have gotten a job at any school and my loyalties would be with that school because I would get to know and love the people. Unless of course it was Timpview or Lone Peak.

Katie that is too funny. What you said about Lone Peak made me laugh, cause my nephew Kevin played for Lone Peak. So I actually cheered for them this past year. They won every game but one. They took the State Title. I had a hard time at first going to the gym and cheering for them. But I ended up a fan.

Then, at Snow I became best friends with Kamie Jo and she played at Payson. Now, I love the Lions. I still have no connection to the Bulldogs, so I still hate them. ;) J/K.

Peace-

So, was there any loyalty to the Nittany Lion?

ktb said...

Yes - there is a bit of loyalty to the Nittany Lion - but only because of the cool people who became great frineds that I met in PA!

Didn't we go to high school in the early 90s? All I have to say is...GO COUGARS!!!!

Of course you are a Caveman. I'm right there with you. I would have definitely cheered for our AF kids over the OHS Tigers if I had been in your place. Gosh, I miss those kids. Seeing many of them on Facebook has helped tremendously.

Look who I found while blog hopping- the most famous Bulldog of all and now she claims to be a Caveman. I can't believe it. You may not recognize the name Darowski, but I'm sure Gooch rings a bell. I'm glad to see your as quick witted as ever. You've always made me laugh. I bet you are a great coach- as for me you can check me out at darowski.blogspot.

I know I'm a little late on this whole blogging thing. Infact I just learned about it when you called me the other night. Hello!!! Where have I been?
Anyway, about the whole Caveman thing. I think it all started on your mission, when your favorite comp was infact, a MIGHTY CAVEMAN!!! Good ole, AFH

All I have to say Katy is that I'm going to pretend that I didn't read those blasphemous words. Nothing against the cavemen, I'm sure they're special people and all, but, I can't believe you even need to ask!!! You bleed green & pee green! (and Don't forget it!!)
