Dear GYA, A lot of people have been asking me, "Yo, big man, who you got in this weekend's matchup between BYU and University of Utah?" and honestly, I have no idea what any of these idiots are talking about. Should I care about this? These are colleges, right? Playing a football game? Oh!, Damn it. Seriously? Anything happening this weekend besides the "Holy War?" -God
