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!
