Indio, California: DT and I were up with the chickens this morning to watch ESPN GameDay live from the University of Oregon campus. Of course, it was raining in Eugene. Of course, that didn't stop the students and fans from arriving in the early darkness to cheer.Photo courtesy of Oregon Football
I can't believe how often ESPN GameDay has broadcast from the University of Oregon in the past several years.
But football wasn't the only sport on our radar today. The NCAA Cross Country Championship races were held this morning in Kentucky. The Women of Oregon won! Won! Won! Finished in first place!
Gee, maybe in 30 years or so they will be inducted into the Oregon Hall of Fame. (Just sayin'.)
The Men of Oregon finished in 20th place, with Oklahoma State taking the men's national title. Congratulations to the Cowboys.
After all that excitement, we needed a little relaxation.
No matter how many wonderful appetizers I prepared, the furds still managed to beat Our Ducks - in overtime - at Autzen Stadium. Not really sure how that happened, but it made for an abrupt and quiet ending to our tailgate party in Indio.
Until my next update, I remain, your "cancelling our Miami hotel reservations" correspondent.
