I'm fairly confident that the last time I went to a Duck football game in Eugene was 15 years ago. I follow the team as a yearly obsession from far away, even seeing them a few times in the Bay Area during that time. But a live game in Eugene? It had been a while.
Luckily I have friends who enjoy road trips, have ticket connections and even spare bedrooms. Otherwise I would be up a creek.
I didn't bring the big camera this time. Just used my dumb phone. Maybe someday I'll upgrade.
The lack of photo quality was more than made up for in quality time with old friends. I didn't see everybody and I'm sure I missed a bunch who were there as well, but it was a great time with a ton of laughs and little sleep.
And the Ducks won.
