Ducks!

Hi –

I was just in downtown Portland, taking a lunch break from OSCON, and
I happened to walk past the Duck Shop! It turns out that University
of Oregon’s athletic teams are called the Ducks. I guess if it bats
like a duck or putts like a duck…

You can shop at the Duck Store, visit GoDucks.com, join the Junior
Ducks (if you’re of the right age), and generally do duck-type things.
You’ll find yourself frequenly enjoined to “get your quack on.”

Perhaps next year we can have a duck typing panel, and get sponsorship
from U of O :slight_smile:

And if that fails, try getting sponsorship from OSU’s team – the
Beavers. I wish I were making that up. The Beavers vs Ducks ‘civil
war’ game is big news in these parts.

Welcome to my home town. :slight_smile: BTW, the Ducks/U of O are in Eugene. The
Beavers/OSU are in Corvallis. Portland has Portland State, who call
themselves Viking. So … if it walks like a Duck, it’s in Eugene. :slight_smile:

Me … I sidestepped all of that and became an Illini. :slight_smile: But my heart
is with the Cougars. If it snarls like a cougar …
