I had forgotten how fast, big & athletic the players really are. I had previously only attended BYU football games when I was a student there. Those were such fun games. I sat with my roommates and we had such a great time. We weren't in the student section this time, but the student section was directly next to ours corded off by a long, yellow rope. After being there for only a short while I realized that that rope was probably for my own protection. Those fans are crazy! I think they're mostly crazy because they're drunk. Well, they are college kids trying to impress each other so that comes into play as well.
You'd think that with such amazing seats it would be impossible to be distracted by anything else. Well, you'd be wrong. I am a people watcher. I love to see how people present themselves not just in dress, but in body language and facial expression. I had a really hard time when we were looking at houses when we were deciding where to move because if the house was occupied, all I wanted to do was look at the photos on the wall or try to figure out the person's interests from items in their homes. Honestly, I even looked in their pantries not just to see the size of the pantry, but to see what foods the home owners liked. I know, I'm weird.
So, when I wasn't watching the game and trying very hard to protect my ears from the foul language of the all the fickle "coaches" sitting in the stands, I was being shocked by the way the ASU women present themselves. Now, to be fair, there were some female students there that were dressed very modestly and looked very sweet, but they were in a small minority compared to those girls who were prowling around. These prowlers were wearing ASU T-shirts that they had deconstructed into tube tops, dresses and whatever else they could to barely cover their chests. Seriously, I've never seen such a sight. I did figure out how they do it though:
- Buy an ASU T-shirt that is already too small for you if it were left completely alone.
- Rip said T-shirt to where you can tie in around your chest exposing most of your clevage.
- If you think that style is too "last year" then you can cut slits in the side of the T-shirt causing others to place bets as to how long your shirt will stay together.
- If styles mentioned on numbers 2 & 3 are too boring for you or you actually want to try a new avenue, you can buy two shirts and make them into a dress. It won't be flattering, but it will be a dress.
- I also forgot to mention that you must bleach your hair blonde and wear a lot of foundation on your face.
- You must carry a cell phone with you at all times. If you are not texting on this phone, you must have it stuck to your ear to let everyone know that you're at the game, but you are so popular you could be anywhere with anyone.
- You need to walk up and down the stairs or in front of the bleachers where the other ASU students are sitting at least 4 times per quarter. Any less and you might be able to watch the game.
Okay, I'm being really judgmental here. I know, I know. I was a crazy college girl once too, but I couldn't help but think while I was there, "We are going home and teaching Ryanna the BYU fight song. We are going to buy all of her clothing in blue, tan and white. We are going to bring up the idea of BYU at least twice a day and mention how excited we'll be when she goes there." It really scared me to think that women are presenting themselves this way. No wonder the men in our society are turning to hard porn, there's soft porn surrounding them daily.
Even sadder is that these girls are dressing this way to attract attention from guys. I had a group of about eight such guys sitting directly behind me during the first half of the game, so I was able to hear their running commentaries on the above-mentioned women. They did think these females were hot no doubt, but with absolutely no respect for them. They called them very unflattering names. They didn't find these girls interesting for any other reason than their bodies. Besides, what kind of a man are you going to attract when you dress that way?
Ryanna would've talked my ear off if she would've been at the game. We had a family home evening lesson on modesty about two months ago and boy she took it to heart. Whenever we're out she lets me know when she seems a woman immodestly dressed. I hear it from her when I do my exercise videos:
Ryanna: "Mom that lady is not dressed modestly."
Me: "I know, that's not good is it."
Ryanna: "No, she should put some modest clothes on."
Me: "Yes, she should."
Now that I've got that out, I feel a lot better. Oh yeah, ASU stomped Washington.
