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.
60,000 people were at Autzen Stadium to watch the #3 Duck 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. Dave at far left - Photo by Mary
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.
