What is e'er golden in life, you ask? The sweet irony and discomfort of BYU going to the Las Vegas Bowl, that's what. Bronco Mendenhall looks as comfortable standing between two showgirls as we look in church. Meaning: obviously and visibly praying for a fire to break out so he can leave. Even the helmet looks actively disdainful here:
Mike Stoops, meanwhile, looks more and more like Matt Foley, motivational speaker, but that's likely due to his suffering from a tragic case of EWAQ syndrome, or Ever Widening Aidan Quinn Syndrome, where even a slight amount of weight gain goes directly to the head and face. He'll have a larger challenge in keeping his players away from Vegas' triple threat of gambling, booze, and hookers, something he says he's well aware of, and will prepare for by submitting his players to electroshock therapy. Mendenhall, on the other hand, will solve the problem by being Mormon.
