How vain it is to sit down to write when you haven't stood up to live?
Anonymous asked: Got HUGE respect for the Ducks, from a USC fan. And I just wanted to say you have an excellent blog. Also, should be a good game between us this year.!
I deeply appreciate the kind words, much love. The respect is undoubtedly reciprocal, in fact—it’s a blend of both respect & fear. I’d be naive not to be nervous for the SC-Oregon showdown this Fall in the Coliseum. The trifecta of Barkley-Lee-Woods is absolutely explosive, especially if they are are as slippery after the catch as they were last season at Autzen. Seeing DAT make his return to his stomping grounds will be quite the background story as well. You can find me down in SoCal this year clinking bottles with fellow Ducks & rival Trojans pre-game at one of the top tailgating atmospheres in the country, as there is no chance I’d miss the game of the year in the Pac-12.
I’ll even tell my buddy NOT to do this again.
Cheers & Slainte.
