It Never Rains At Autzen Stadium

I just got home after a 4.5 mile rainy run with my friend, Deb. It was a great run fueled by a ton of pizza. Yesterday started early as we headed down to Eugene for the Duck Game.

Kim was right...I didn't need to worry about rain ponchos after all, because as you know...

...it never rains at Autzen Stadium.

Whenever it got super noisy, I thought of my "non-shout out" last week from Nelly on the run...

and wondered how Stanford would fare for him later in the day.

We were right next to the student section and the students dropped the Duck on his head no fewer than 5 times, so my kids went over to pull his tail feathers console him...



...and then it was time to go to Mom and Dad's for a 40th (gasp!) birthday party for my SIL, where I consumed 4 pieces of glorious pizza plus probably another 3 or 4 full pieces in small snippets. Do you chip away with a knife at full pieces of pizza until you've completely inhaled another adult size meal like me? Followed that up with an amazing piece of my mom's chocolate pie, said good-bye to my 20 year old looking 40 year old SIL and then rolled home...only to get up this morning to feel like a million bucks for my run. Every weekend should be this delicious.

Oh pizza - 1 piece is NEVER enough! Love that you found my blog, i'm enjoying reading about your 1/2 ironman - that's insane!!!

Awesome you went to the game! Looks like Oregon destroyed Missouri State!

That is great that the Duck mascot was by you, I gotta say the Duck is my favorite mascot in college sports =)

Great videos too, it did seem loud, and this wasn't even a conference game, haha

Thanks for the shoutout mid post, haha

Stanford did beat Arizona pretty good, but unfortunately we lost our best defensive player (Skov) for the season due to a knee injury. Also our tight end (Fleener) got a concussion, I hope he's not out for long. So while we did win the game, the injuries are not good. Though the team has a bye next week, then we play at home against UCLA and then against Colorado, 2 pretty bad teams.

Okay, obviously I am not at all a fan, but I do like that picture of the duck and the tail feathers! There is something about good ol' Donald that you just can't ignore his little duck butt! A similar photo exists from my birthday party last year in WDW!
