Salt in the wounds
Saturday's Ducks game against UCLA was painful. While I should have been in front of a TV to catch every agonizing minute of my alma mater's defeat, I was elsewhere. I can blame my lack of commitment on my status as a casual fan.
For example, I didn't know what the "Toilet Bowl" was until about two hours ago as I was going through a week's worth of local news I neglected over the holiday week(end). If you're still in the dark, it was a 1983 Civil War game that ended in a 0 - 0 tie on a dark, rainy day at Autzen. This and other factoids can found in last Wednesday's Willamette Week cover story that delves into Ducks fandom.
Speaking of the U of O, this is a great idea for a protest.
