About a month and a half ago Chris took us all to the Utah Bookstore in search of a little Utah basketball jersey for Beckham. He was frustrated to find nothing. It was shocking the selection they didn’t have. I assume they might have one during basketball season. I would hope at least. For the time being however, we went home empty handed and a little bummed out. Our search in other stores was also without success.
Chris and I dated while he was playing basketball at the U and we lived about a block away from each other. His oldest brother Ben lived right near us with his wife Cooper, and their little girl who was 1. They had purchased a Utah basketball jersey with Chris’s number 34 on it that was being sold in the bookstore at that time. They now have 5 kids, and each of them had their turn wearing it. Since their youngest is now 3, the size 2T jersey has run it’s course for them.
A month ago, when we met up in California for Chris’s little brother’s wedding, Ben & Cooper presented Chris with a little gift. The size 2T Utah basketball jersey. Chris could not have been more excited. It was perfect timing. It just fits Beckham. It makes it a lot more special and fun than a random Utah jersey would have been, because it has Chris’s number 34 on it and was being sold because of him. Thanks Ben and Cooper for the perfect gift!
Yay! We loved it and it seemed only right to pass it on to you guys!
