Yup...we "plucked" those dastardly ducks 38-31 in overtime, thereby winning the 111th Oregon-Oregon State annual "Civil War."
I had never met any of these fellow Beavers before, but the lady in orange graduated a year after me, and the guy in black next to her was in my 1976 graduating class.
We laughed at our excitement; when we were at OSU watching the games in person, Dee Andros was the couch, and he was about the most exciting thing about the whole team, as Andros was as wide as he was tall and went by the name of "The Great Pumpkin,"
Dressed head to toe in orange, coaching from the sidelines, it was an apt moniker.
The team, however, was terrible back then.
I remember playing bridge with my dorm mates to pass the time in the stands.
That's bad. Real bad.
So of course now we are ABSOLUTELY making up for the lost years by enjoying every second of our Fighting Beaver's games.
