Today the University of Oregon Ducks will play the Oregon State Beavers to see which team & band will go to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on New Year's Day. This is the first time in the history of the state that both main teams are playing against each other to get to the BIG prize.
Every time they play, it's Civil War, but now it's amped up to the nth degree. The whole state will be wearing either Green & Yellow, or Orange & Black today. Oh, sure, there are a couple of platypus out there (duck bill with a beaver tail), but for the most part, people will cheer one or the other.
Rose Bowl tickets were already on sale at Thanksgiving & tickets for today's game can be found selling at $500 each (at least). No one I know with tickets is selling them :P
Hopefully, no one is unintentionally driving toward Eugene, OR this afternoon - because it's gonna be nuts!
GO DUCKS! (I have to say it - my daughter's a Duck!)
