Oregon Ducks vs Arizona Wildcats.... It's only a Game."
If it is only a game why can't I think of anything else? It seems like a long long time till Friday in Eugene. The game will be at 4 PM PST on ESPN TV. Friday is called "Black Friday" because it is the number one shopping day of the year..... the day after Thanksgiving. I have no interest in shopping on Friday. Christmas shopping can wait! Putting up Christmas decorations can wait ! Raking leaves can wait!
Thanksgiving is always special but it will only be a brief interlude on the path to VICTORY.
The Ducks MUST win!
For the last few years I have started out each football season with the attitude "let's just go with the flow." "Let's just enjoy the journey." If the Ducks win that's good but if they lose well it's been a fun adventure. NOT ANYMORE... this season is a QUEST and the next hurdle is ARIZONA on Friday. We MUST win the day! Without saying the words we all know what is at stake. Oregon is #1 in the BCS. A loss and it will all go away. I am confident the team will be ready.... rarely has a team had more to play for.
