    I remember a story about a family going to a family style restaurant and took way more then they gave. Made national news, went back twelve times for roast beef. When the restaurant refused to serve him again he sued the restaurant. Now we are all limited to our portions. Thanks.

    @ Warrior Parent
    I am a "Poly" I still don't get it , but thanks for your insight and opinions on
    my culture.

    Had Poly neighbors for many years. Enjoyed it very much. Large families. They stay close to their family and true to their traditions. And it's true, they give more than they take.

    Great story. And of course the "haters" i.e. Christy B have to bring the rivalry into it. I am not sure I would call Murphy a BYU family since Dale Murphy was a convert to the church.

    FYI - Chris B My father was a U of U alum. I grew up there, worked at the U hospital, golfed many many times there and went to summer kids programs at the U each and every year. Went to East High down the street. Attended U games as a kid and was in every catacomb at the U. I then went to BYU.

    So I am a U family that went to BYU.

    True I still root for the U but I am more Blue than Red.

    @ChrisB - too late in the game, you missed it this time.

    Great picture from the FSU game. BYU fans were seriously outnumbered but it was fun seeing FSU fans being carted out of the stadium for fighting with each other.

    Where did his son choose to play?



    Chase Hansen, Lindsay, Murphy, Ofanhengue...

    This list continues of "byu families" becoming "utah families"

    Rarely if ever do we read of "utah families" becoming "byu families"

    I wonder if it has something to do with

    recent dominance in the former rivalry?

    our invite to the Prestigious Pac 12?

    Our 2004 undefeeated season?

    Our 2008 undefeated season?

    Our 2004 BCS bowl?

    Our 2008 BCS bowl?

    Our 2004 top 5 finish?

    Our 2008 top 2 finish?

    Yes, likely all of those!

    If you know the poly way... its not taking advantage. They always give more than they take. The Leis, the smiles, the happiness... that all counts too

    I'd be embarrassed if people found out I brought 62 family members with me and totally took a advantage that way.

    Great story!

    I didn't know anything about him and it was fun to hear some of the details.

    RE: Braxton. You don't need to throw him under the bus and say it is over reaching. He has a big family and it sounds like they know how to show their support. Also, the NFL has all the money in the world and they can pay for it.

    Keep rocking Mr. Irrelevant.

    Typical. Sounds like he is proud of ruining a great celebration for others and their families. Over reaching.

    So I guess the moral is that it's better to get picked last than to not get picked at all. Hard story to read and follow. Mr. Ofahengaue sounds like a great guy.

    Funny how some people wait to react to Chris but say nothing about the article?

    What a quicky story. How long before Chris reminds us, "Yes, but he wasn't recruited by Bronco."
