Tom, Cassie, Caroline, and I went to Autzen Stadium to watch the Home-coming Game for the Oregon Ducks. They played (stomped, mashed, wiped the floor with) the Washington State University (Wazoo) Cougars, defeating them 53-7. A very fun game, blowout though it was.
Lots to watch, including the game!
Caroline had her orthodontist put green and gold bands on her braces just for the game. You can see them here if you look closely.
These two men were opponents who shared a tense moment at one of the ref's calls, then broke the ice with each other and ended up sitting side by side, having a great time conversing. At the end of the game they smiled, wished each other well, and shook hands. It really IS just a game, for fun. Good to see these two showing kindness and good sportmsanship. Really good.
Every time the Ducks scored the mascot would swagger onto the field and do push-ups equalling the total score. We'd all count with him. He got a good workout today! The cheerleaders did gymnastics across the end zone, too. Amazing!
I am wearing my Angry Duck Eyes cap. I call it my Mommy-Hat because when I put it on backwards I have eyes in the back of my head, as do all mommies. Right?
Going for that last touchdown....and it's GOOD! More push-ups for the Duck!
Half-time was fun, of course.
UofO's cheer leaders jumped, swooshed, neck-snapped, and smiled!
The pep band kept us energized.
The stadium was completely packed. A sea of green and yellow, with a dotting of red here, a small dash there.
All in all, a fun way to spend a sunny October day.
Perfect weather. People you love. Music. Yelling.
(Did I mention we won?! Yay!)
