One bite closer to Roses
In other sports news…Beavers just win (ugly uniforms be damned)
In an effort to be equal in our sports coverage, it’s worth pointing out that, if you haven’t heard, Oregon State is just two wins away from a Rose Bowl trip after their workmanlike 34-21 win over Cal.
The ladyfriend and I have shared a collective crush on Oregon State’s Smurf-sized running back Jacquizz Rodgers since he lit up USC a few weeks back and the 5-foot-nothing fireplug did it again on Saturday against the Bears, doing his best Emmanuel Lewis and Walter Payton impersonation and racking up 144 yards.
I have dated into a split household. Half of the ladyfriend’s family roots for the Ducks, the other half screams for the Beavers. And although I usually miss the Civil War game (my beloved Razorbacks usually have their annual cranium buster against LSU on the same day), I may just have to put my Hog hat aside this year and tune in for what should be the rare meeting of O and O-State with both regional and national meaning.
