Report from Autzen: 69-0

It was a rainy day in Oregon. Mother Nature did not care the Ducks had a home game in Eugene, the Beavers had a home game in Corvallis or the lovely town of Mount Angel was holding their annual Oktoberfest. She poured buckets of rain on the Willamette Valley.

Because of the Yom Kippur holiday, DT and I did not go to the game, so our RV was not there to offer shelter from the storm. Woody and Kathy did not go to the game either, so their RV was not there to offer shelter from the storm.

Not to worry. Our friends are resourceful. They improvised. They also emailed photos (from their phones!) to us throughout the evening.

Kathy and Woody's #4, Kyle, stepped-in for his Dad and grilled hotdogs for the diminished crowd.

Our friend, Julie, sent a photo of her new earrings. (Please notice Mary & Steve's license plate.)

The Ducks whipped-up on the Portland State Vikings, 69-0. Three games into the season and the #5 Ducks have scored 189 points. Opponents, 13.

That is not a typo.

Wait! Where were Kathy and Woody? Why didn't they go to the game? They went to the Pendleton Roundup where their #3, the adorable Katie, became engaged to her from-Pendleton boyfriend, Greg.

Brings a little tear to my eye. I just love these kids and am so happy for them.

Even though they are both OSU Beavers graduates.

Until my next update, I remain, your GO DUCKS correspondent.
