I Smell Roses: Rose Bowl Redux

oregon football

Well the Ducks may get their chance at the Rose Bowl (or at least at Oregon State) after beating Arizona tonight in double overtime.

It looks like we also won our little challenge with the Arizona Desert Lamp, meaning they have to purchase 3 copies of our book, By the Barrel: 25 Years of the Oregon Commentator with “Oregon Owns the State of Arizona” written on the inside cover. I’ll be looking for a check shortly from Evan and the crew at the Desert Lamp.

Overall it was a good game, even if there was some ridiculous moments (the non-facemask) and the Arizona fans got a little antsy for a field-rush. An OC crew enjoyed the victory at Rennie’s Landing as one big family, which is what college football is all about. It was an exciting game, and I’m damn glad the Ducks came out on top.

Now it’s time for the Civil War, and this year’s game could not have higher stakes. I’m ready for the Beavers.

Go Ducks.

    How about a ‘paint the town green’ raid on Corvallis? We could use dye that will wash away easily so as to avoid the ticket(s) for vandalism, etc. (maybe)

    Really though, I’m surprised that Ducks fans haven’t come up with some sort of downward chopping cheer (i.e. Tomahawk Chop) called the Beaver Cleaver. The student section could have a lot of fun with that one.

    Civil War: Win or lose, I predict rioting.

    Personally, I was disgusted by all of the Arizona fans who came in red-face. I had to turn it off at half-time because I couldn’t stand seeing another close-up shot of the racist horde. On top of it all, the football team even dressed up to match the ‘red-out’. At least Oregon had enough class to ignore the black-out *ahem* lights-out game with their uniform selection.

    Calm down now, I may have to call unsportsmanlike conduct..
