You are probably a BYU sports fan if:

When the Missionary Training Center was built in Provo, the Church planted beautiful athletic fields right across the street so the missionaries would have a place to exercise. But the new grass was so inviting that BYU students liked to go there to play football, throw frisbees, or just lie around. When the missionaries went out, little room was left for their activities. The leaders of the MTC finally posted a large sign on the field: “Missionaries Only.”

The next day, BYU students were out again in full force, playing their football and throwing frisbees on the field. Next to the official sign, they had posted a new one: “Every member a missionary.” (Best-Loved Humor of the LDS People, p. 151)

J. Golden Kimball once said, “I believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, and virtuous, and in doing good at all times. What can you do with a man that is a cheat and a liar? You can baptize him every ten minutes, but it won’t do him any good unless you hold him under.” (The J. Golden Kimball Stories, by Eric A. Eliason, p. 67)
