Yesterday, the Oregon Ducks played the Wisconsin Badgers at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and they won 45-38. Though the Ducks have been invited many times to the Rose Bowl, this is the first time that they were victorious since 1917.
We are Oregon fans are awful proud of our Ducks! Here is link to a neat photo essay of the game; if you want to check it out, just "CLICK HERE".
Cary and I enjoyed the game from the comfort of our living room, and were happy to have the construction fans and dehumidifier turned off so that we could actually hear the t.v. Things on the roof repair are progressing smoothly, thank goodness.
Did you wonder why the Rose Bowl was not played on New Year's Day this year? The parade and game were delayed to January 2nd instead. One reason for this is because college teams do not play on Sunday, as Sunday is reserved for the NFL.
So, we are almost done with football this year. Almost. There is now a countdown to playoff games for the pros and the Superbowl to look forward to for most people. But our family and friends have a very special game coming up on Saturday: The Army All-American Game in San Antonio, Texas. The Army All-American Game is like the Superbowl for high school kids.

Cary and I are so excited to be able to go and watch the game in person, and spend time with the family. We will be sitting in the area reserved for family, so look for us if you get the chance. The game will be shown on NBC Sports (formerly known as Verses). It begins at 12:00 Central Time (I think that makes it 10:00 PST) on Saturday, January 7th. I hope that you can get it where you live, and will get a chance to see Tyler play his first nationally televised game.

So, even though I grew up in Eugene and will always be a Duck, I am also wholeheartedly supporting the TCU Horned Frogs team and their newest quarterback, Tyler Matthews.
