Must Love Ducks
I chose to go to the University of Oregon for three reasons: Sprawling quads, close enough to home to get there for a long weekend but not so close that I would be able to do my laundry there, and football. I attended a small, private high school where soccer was the popular sport, and I dreamed of going to college in a community filled with spirit, surrounded by crazy fans, looking forward to football season every fall. What I got was the most amazing college experience and what lives on are the friends that I made and the team that I love. Three years after graduating, my devotion to the Ducks is as strong as ever, and I can't wait to root for the green and yellow for the rest of my life. This is the best time of the year, when Saturdays are reserved for couch sitting, beer drinking, snack munching, touchdown cheering afternoons.
