If the trees look fuzzy in today’s photo, it’s because it was raining (despite the blue sky in the background).

Ducks’ season ends without a trip to World Series

Oregon Ducks Softball Cheridan Hawkins

Cheridan Hawkins

Cheridan Hawkins’ career at Oregon came to an end yesterday after four stellar seasons. By the end of Saturday it seemed the #5 Ducks would be headed to the World Series again. With #1 Florida being upset and knocked out and the Ducks up 1-0 on UCLA at home in the Super Regionals, the odds of Oregon winning the whole thing looked possible. Then, Sunday, just two outs away from a trip to Oklahoma City, UCLA came back to win the game 2-1, forcing another game which they also took 2-1. The Ducks outscored the Bruins 10-5 in the series, and Oregon won the regular-season Pac-12 title, but neither of those things mattered. UCLA is moving on, and the Ducks are done.

Over four years, Cheridan threw almost 800 innings, struck out over a thousand batters, compiled a 1.66 ERA, a won-loss record of 108-20, and earned 17 saves.

The Mo Center

We just got back from three days of volleyball. The Rogue Valley Volleyball Club 18U team came in 38th place out of 108 teams. They finished with a 6-2 record, losing both of their games in three sets. In other words, they beat everyone they faced at least once. Given the original rankings, Rogue Valley couldn’t have finished higher than 29th place, even if they won all their games, so I guess you could say they came in 9th place.

Where to watch football in Ashland

De’Anthony Thomas – beginning of 86 yard kickoff return – Oregon Ducks football

Of course if you want live football, AHS is the place to be today. However, after today’s SOU game you may want more. Or maybe you are a fan of the NFL and want to watch with a crowd instead of by yourself in your living room.

The #3 Ducks play #7 Michigan State after the Raiders’ game this afternoon. The obvious choices of places to watch the game in Ashland are Red Zone, Louie’s, Northwest Pizza, or Omars. However, if you have been to any or all of these places on game day you know that the crowds can be too big, and the service can become very slow.

A new option is Club 66. Uzi has five or six TVs going now, with up to three different DirecTV stations playing simultaneously, including a 10′ projection screen. He also has 6 beers on tap (and more in cans and bottles). But this next item may be the clincher for some of you. Pitchers of ANY beer (including Ninkasi’s Total Domination IPA and other micro draft beers) are just $10! That’s about the cost of two pints at the other places.

The Sunday breakfast deal is also a bargain.

For a look at the kickoff return in today’s photo a few seconds later, click here.

Delta Ponds (Eugene, Oregon)

I spent this past weekend in Eugene. While there, I took a walk on a lovely morning in Delta Ponds City Park. Next time I’ll have to bring a longer lens to capture some of the wildlife that is teaming in this place. If you look closely you can see some ducks in the center of today’s photograph.

Oregon State’s Michael Conforto taken by the Mets in the first round with the #10 pick

OSU baseball – Michael Conforto

@mconforto8 Congratulations to Michael Conforto for his high draft pick today! A pick this high should net him about $3 million if he gives up his senior season at OSU.

I took today’s photo last season. Conforto had just broken a 0-0 tie against the Ducks with a home run. He had 31 such dingers during his three years with the Beavers. More impressive perhaps was his consistently high batting average and on base percentage. In over 175 games he maintained a .341 batting average and .463 on base percentage.
