Dear GYA, You know, I think it's total crap that BYU fans didn't like my "Spirit, Tradition and Honor" nameplate idea. But, whatever. Now I know to just keep to our old "traditions." Or, maybe I should only do things within the "spirit" of the program. I guess I could always "honor" the wishes of our alumni. Pfffft. Anything happening this weekend that involves a little "spirit, tradition and honor?" - Coach Bronco Mendenhall---

Coach, Not every idea you have can be a winner. I mean, at least 80 percent of my ides are shit ... except for my Batman quesadilla maker that also doubles as a WiFi hub. Anyway, here's what's up for this weekend. Let's start with Friday's events: 

The Salt Lake County Fair will be going on all day at the Salt Lake County Equestrian Park and Events Center. The carnival kicks off at 4 p.m.

The Hotel will be hosting the final round of its 2nd Annual DJ Contest tonight. The contest starts at 9. 

Portland-based alternative-rock band Hockey will be onstage at The State Room.  St. Motel and SWIMM will warm things up. The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $12.
