You may be asking yourself, "Why?"  Because, 95 years ago The University of Oregon won their first Rose Bowl.  This was Oregon's 6th Rose Bowl - EVER!  Yesterday was their 2nd win - EVER!

My Father was the BIGGEST Duck Fan - he attended the games in 1957 and 1995, the only two Oregon Rose Bowls in his lifetime.  This was Oregon's 3rd Rose Bowl in my lifetime and my first to attend.  Hubby and I hosted our two kids (#1 Son is a Sophomore at Oregon) to the game.
And......WHAT A GAME!

We stood for every single minute of play - We yelled "O"!!!  during every second of defense - When the fourth quarter clock was ticking down and we were leading on the score board, I went weak in the knees and burst into tears.

 (I know!  I've seen those fans on television do the same thing and thought, Gawd.  Who do they think they are?  They aren't even on the field getting pummeled and scoring the touchdowns... WHY ARE THEY CRYING?)  

And it felt good!  REALLY GOOD!!!

Cheers! GO DUCKS! (hoarsely)   Linda  :-)
