Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck...
On the first weekend of October, Mike and I headed to Eugene for our annual college football game. Two years ago we sat through pouring rain; last year, cold but dry. This year, glorious, glorious sunshine.
On game day we met up with two of Mike's co-workers. While we couldn't get four seats together, we did enjoy a little pre-game lunch at the local farmer's market before making the long trek to the game.
Fabulous game (this from a non-football fan)! UO beat Stanford 52 to 31, and it was a game full of excitement. The duck had to do over 100 push-ups throughout the game.
It would have been perfect, if not for the two gentlemen below...
The guy on the left is over 6', making his buddy around 6'-6". These guys stood up the entire game! Including half-time! Even standing I had to crunch down and peer through their arms.
Since we spent the entire weekend in Eugene, it's nice to get in a little something other than football. This year we went to check out one of the many local covered bridges. This one is the Earnest Bridge, built in 1938.
