Re: Dallin Grant - New Commit

What was the phrase Jackie Robinson's manager used? "I don't care if you're white, black, orange, or purple. If he can help us win, he's playing." I probably botched that, but If we start losing, then I'll be more concerned about who we recruit. My favorite "color" story occurred in the old fieldho...

By the way..it is the best insulated bottle I have ever had. Fill it with water, close lid, and place in freezer...still not frozen inside after 24 hours. It has served me well, filled with pre made Margaritas in my golf bag.(like WC Fields...that's my lemonade).

Aggie Identity Problem??

One of my friends is constantly on the lookout for USU stuff for me...this month a Merlin Olsen 1974 LA Rams card and a Jordan Love rookie card. Some time ago he gave me this water bottle...it wasn't until just this morning I noticed the "Salt Lake City"!! https://i.postimg.cc/vxW8tzjC/IMG-5811.jpg ...
