Go Ducks!!!

So, yesterday was game day and I could barely sleep the night before. Kinda like not sleeping on Christmas Eve but this is way worse. 

I started the morning with College GameDay, just like I’ve started each Saturday morning during football seasons for years. 


On the way to Eugene, I hit some traffic and of course it made me anxious. I couldn’t wait to get to our tailgate. 

Tailgating was amazing. We’ve been in the same spot for going on 20 years and it’s so cool to see what changes with the people around us that are also tailgating. 

I’ve seen kids grow up and be able to share beers. I’ve seen people get married and divorced and married again. 

When the players run out of the tunnel and on to the field, I always tear up. By the National Anthem, I’m crying. 

Autzen Stadium is my most favorite place on earth. 


The game. 

Boy, I was sure disappointed. I thought that the Ducks missed plays, both lines looked horrible. Tackles were missed and even though the Ducks scored their typical 50+ points, but the QB, Dakota just couldn’t find any rhythm. Perhaps it was because his line wasn’t protecting him and he was sacked so many times. 

We went to a local bar across from Autzen and talked with other fans about the game and were also able to watch a couple games and catch up on the afternoons games. 

There was no such thing as traffic on the way home. It was smooth sailing the whole way. 

I watched SportsCenter, like I do every game day night. 

GO DUCKS!!!
