Game Day at the University of Oregon

Wow, is there anything more fun than a college football game on a beautiful fall day?  We're big Oregon Duck fans, and there is no better time to be a Duck than now, when they are No. 2 in the National Rankings. We've followed the team through thick and thin, going to the games rain or shine! Of course, the mantra in Oregon, is that "It never rains in Autzen Stadium!" 
Looks like Darth Vader, but it's actually a colorful guy advertising the Oregon Bookstore.
Tailgate parties were in full swing.  Someone had actually hired an Elvis impersonator, and he was in the parking lot, belting out tunes. 
It was a special day to have both of the kids with us.
Dear daughter and I!
It's always a rush when the Mascot Duck roars out of the bunker on a motorcycle, with the team behind him.  The crowd goes wild!
Beautiful sky!
ESPN'S Game Day was on campus earlier in the day for their morning program, College Game Day, and they returned after the Ducks beat Stanford.  The first half of the game was a nail bighter, but the team came back second half to work their magic!
Setting up for the evening game recap show.
Everyone swarmed around the announcers as they set up for the broadcast...reminded me of the ant farms that my kids had when they were little.

When we returned home at 1:00 AM, we discovered that we'd been 'Flocked'  with green flamingos by our good friends, the Johnson's.
