The Boise State Championship football team will be leaving for the Fiesta Bowl at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning the day after Christmas–December 26.
The GUARDIAN noticed a caller to the Mayor’s Hotline (see below) begged for a team sendoff parade. We contacted the caller–a Bronco fan and ex-state trooper so devoted he has volunteered his time as “security officer” for the past nine years. He got a call from Team Dave’s office telling him it was a great idea, but it just wouldn’t fly with such short notice. Bad Move by Team Dave.
Well, sports fans the GUARDIAN is here to show city hall a send off WILL fly and it can be a heart warming send off on a cold winter morning. We may not have a parade, but it will be hard to prevent a MOTORCADE and thousands of fans waving orange and blue the full length of Broadway.
The three BSU team buses will be leaving the stadium as early as 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday the 26th for the brief trip to the airport. Cars with Bronco flags and ribbons of orange and blue could easily find themselves cruising Broadway at that hour and just by chance get caught up with busloads of champion football players headed to the biggest game of their lives.
Just a thought in case anyone had a notion to join in a little local sporting history. Wouldn’t put it past some of the restaurants along the route to offer up either breakfast of at least snacks at that early hour.
Let’s see the politicos put a damper on this one!!
