Tonight the University of Oregon Ducks beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys 42 to 31 in the San Diego Holiday Bowl. My blow-up Duck is now 3 and 0. I first put him up on our deck last year for the Michigan game in Ann Arbor. This year, I put him out for the Oregon State game and tonight for the Holiday Bowl. Oregon won all three games... thus he is 3 and 0. Before the game tonight our son decorated up our "movie room" for the game with Oregon Duck green and yellow and we had a very festive "tailgate" party during the game with lots of good food. We were a little worried in the first half when the Duck fell behind in the game 7 to 17. In the second half the Ducks scored 35 points as they wore Oklahoma State down. The second half was a lot more fun! After the game our daughter called from Washington DC where she was watching the game so we could all celebrate together. What a fun night.... but as we always say "they never do it easy!" What a great 10 win season. This season we beat the Oregon State Beavers, the Washington Huskies and won a bowl game. They finished 2nd in the Pac-10. Not bad! Congratulations to the entire team and coaches.. Go Ducks!

How long to the Spring game?
