"Returning to the place that her son loved" by JOHN CANZANO

The foot bridge across the Willamette river near Autzen Stadium in Eugene Oregon is one of my favorite places on earth . I walk across it on the way to every University of Oregon home football game. I have thought I would like my ashes, or at least some of them, spread in the river below after I die.

Love him or hate him, every once in a while John Canzano a sports columnist for the Oregonian Newspaper writes a nice column. It will add new meaning to my walks across that bridge.

Three years ago, I wrote a column about a mother in Stockbridge, Ga., who told me she'd watched a VHS tape of an Oregon basketball game "a million times."
