Everything is coming up roses...
So, for those of you that don't know, Colin and I are big University of Oregon football fans. He graduated from Oregon in '03, and was even in the band (both playing & as drum major) a few years.
So, we have season tickets and block out most Saturdays during the fall. Well, yesterday was the Civil War game, which is between the two state universities; Oregon State and University of Oregon. The game is a big deal, mostly because the winner gets bragging rights for a whole year. And, when your co-worker, neighbor, mailman or best friend is your rival, that's pretty darn important.
But, this Civil War was different, because the winner got the golden ticket; a place in the Rose Bowl championship game.
So, yesterday was THE big game, and thankfully it was a home game for us season tickets holders. We were pumped, had donned the appropriate amount of Duck gear, and had sufficiently participated in trash talking with aforementioned persons.
And, long story short...WE WON!!!!!! We're going to the ROSE BOWL baby!!!
C and I are actually thinking about going to Pasadena, so stay tuned... ;0)
