Track Town, USA: Dave started his day by
meeting his old teammates for a jog! Isn't it great that they all still run?
What a great way to start a great day.
Oregon track star (okay, he is also on the football team!), D'Anthony Thomas, is
on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated magazine. I can't tell
you how happy I am that the "fastest man in football" is on the track team.
Well, probably not as happy as the track coach! D'Anthony Thomas - known as DAT
- is the whole package: speed, smarts and good looks. Some people feel there is
a Sports Illustrated "curse". It is true that a few times the Ducks have been
featured on the cover, they lose the next game.
Due to the number of friends in town for the Hall of
Fame induction last night, and the fact that we
have massive amounts of beer
and food are amazingly charming and popular, our tailgate was
very well attended this afternoon prior to the 7:30p kickoff. Frankly, our
tailgate was a little too-well attended. I am guestamating we entertained over
60 fans. With all the people in/out of our motorhome
and dust from the gravel parking lot, after the game, our beautiful bus was a mess
and coated in a thick layer of dust.
The Ducks wore combination #3,456,492 tonight - black pants, green jerseys &
60,000 people were at Autzen Stadium to watch
the #3 Ducks v #22 Arizona game, but I was there to see my husband be
introduced at half-time with his national championship cross country
teams - honored as Hall of Fame Inductees.
They paraded the inductees out on the football field at
half-time for their introduction. Lots of applause! Congratulations to
all the new inductees - especially My Driver.

In the end, the Ducks completely shut-out the Wildcats, 49-0.
Zero. We wouldn't even let them make a lousy field goal.
Until my next update, I remain, your tired correspondent.
