b. Transplanted actual Cougar Stadium turf into his backyard

In 1984, Gary Jensen of Sandy, Utah, put a life-size poster of Robbie Bosco on his front door, transplanted into his backyard the actual piece of turf on which Jim McMahon completed the pass that set a new NCAA total-yardage record, and renamed his son Gifford McMahon Jensen (The Gifford part of his name is after former great BYU and NFL quarterback Gifford Neilsen who also happened to be called to the Quorum of the Seventy at last year’s April conference).
