Oregon vs. Texas in the Alamo Bowl

Tonight (or this afternoon depending on where you live) the Ducks and Longhorns will be locking horns (or webbed feet or something) in a consolation prize for Oregon. It’s not what the Ducks were hoping for, but the season won’t be a complete loss with a bowl victory.

I’m not committed on an NCAA Division I college team to root for at this point, but Ryan has been accepted to the University of Oregon so I may end up becoming a Duck fan beginning next school year.

I suppose an animal with eyes on the sides of its head could view the University of Oregon’s three sporting venues (football, baseball, and soccer) all at once. Us humans need to photomerge six photos together to see them at the same time. This is a 180 degree view from the deck next to the Autzen Stadium Press Box at halftime this past Saturday.

I spent yesterday on the sidelines of the Ducks-Utes game in Eugene. The weather wasn’t too bad. In fact, it only rained during the pregame. It was mostly cloudy the rest of the time, but I can’t complain. A day game without rain is more than I expected.

I took nearly 900 photos and have only looked at about 50 at this point. I’ll post some more here soon.

Last week there was an article in USA Today about an athlete Ellie and I watched last fall.

Note that the USA Today put in a picture labeled as Liz Brenner (who wears #6) that is actually Canace Finley (#5). Ooops.

The University of Oregon did not do as well as Oregon State in the 2013 College World Series. Even though they had a #1 seed (and hence hosted the games in the Regionals), their 3-2 record was not better than Rice’s 3-1 so the #2 seeded Owls advanced, and the Ducks were eliminated last night. The Ducks finished the season with 48 wins, the most in their history.

PK Park – Eugene, Oregon – Home of Ducks Baseball

On Friday night the Ducks were on top of the world. With a 3-0 lead heading into the 9th inning, and a share of 1st place in the Pac-12 within sight, all seemed to be going their way. The Beavers then loaded the bases in time for this photo. The batter, Danny Hayes, hit a rocket to right that could have evened things up, or put the Beavers ahead, but the ball went foul. The Ducks hung on to win the game and move into a tie for first. However, losses on Saturday and Sunday to the Beavers make it unlikely that anyone will be able to catch the Oregon State team with just three conference games to go.

I spent the past couple days in Eugene. Today’s photo is from yesterday’s Civil War game with Oregon State University at PK Park. It was a tight game until the last few innings when OSU opened up their offensive attack and ended up blowing out the Ducks 9-0. The winner of today’s game (at noon) in Eugene (the last in the three-game series) will likely win the Pac-12 Conference Championship. Both teams are ranked in the NCAA Top Ten.

I have a few hundred photos from the game. How many do you want to see?

During the two days I spent in Eugene late last week we saw almost 12 seconds of blue sky. Today’s photo (a photomerge of six photos actually) captures about half of those seconds.

If this looks familiar and you’ve never been on the campus, it may be because ESPN’s College Gameday has set up in this location on more than one occasion.
