Los Angeles, California: We drove over to LA this afternoon so I could attend a fundraiser (tomorrow/Sunday) with Lisa, and so we we could watch the Elite 8 – Ducks v Kansas – basketball game (held in Kansas City) on television with the kids tonight.
The Ducks defeated the Jayhawks 74-60 to advance to the Final Four next weekend in Phoenix. Looks like we are going to Phoenix!
I am not a fair weather fan. I love My Ducks. We hold season basketball tickets, though we are
rarely never in Oregon during basketball season. We went to the Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas last week. But never did I expect the Ducks to be in the Final Four. Could my lack of faith be due to the Duck men not appearing in a Final Four basketball game since 1939, when the University of Oregon beat Ohio State to win the first-ever NCAA basketball championship? Could be.
This is a very exciting Duck team. Expect a lot of blogging in the near future.
Before I close, here are a few photos of our adorable grandchildren. Duplo castle building. Pizza eating. Book reading.
