Holding Out Historical Hope for Oregon Ducks

Posted by David on October 5, 2016 in Oregon Ducks |

Will history repeat itself with another upset in Saturday’s Ducks-Huskies game? It’s been a rough start of the season for the Oregon Ducks and fans unaccustomed to 3 game losing streaks and conference championship dreams squashed in early October. And to make matters worse, the undefeated Washington Huskies are riding into Eugene fresh off a […]

Chip Kelly to USC? I hope not!

Posted by David on October 12, 2015 in College Football, Football, Oregon Ducks, Sports |

Chip Kelly to USC? I guess it could happen. Chip seems like he’d hate LA and all expectations that would come from Trojans boosters. Word out of Eugene was that this was the part of the job he disliked most. He was able to get away with keeping (most) boosters at arm’s length because of […]

Keeping sportsmanship alive

Posted by David on September 9, 2015 in Autism, Sports |

This week the sports media world has been abuzz about an atrocious act of violence during a San Antonio high school football game when two players blindsided an official. While the investigation into that incident continues, and we collectively shake our heads about the lack of sportsmanship displayed, it’s important to remember that there are lots […]

Thank You Lon Simmons – A Special Voice From My Youth

Posted by David on April 6, 2015 in Baseball, Football, Giants, Sports |

Yesterday as we were driving home from a fun Easter weekend spent in Portland, I came across some sad news in my Twitter feed. Lon Simmons, who was a broadcaster for the San Francisco Giants during the 1960s, 70s and 80s (and later the voice of the 49ers and Oakland A’s as well) passed away […]

An Open Letter to my Strange Brews Teammates

Posted by David on March 22, 2015 in Hockey Dad, Sports |

Tonight I officially wrapped up my first season of organized hockey. And what a season it was! The experience far surpassed any and all of my expectations. I’ve been thinking about how best to summarize and blog about my first hockey season and I thought writing a letter to my Strange Brews teammates would be […]

Why Michael Sam Needs To Ditch the OWN Documentary

Posted by David on May 16, 2014 in Football, Sports |

I’m certainly not the first to voice this opinion but I think it’s time for Michael Sam to cancel the previously announced documentary on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). First, I’m a huge supporter and fan of Michael and I hope he finds success in the NFL. I greatly admire his bravery and honesty in […]

Hoping for a Seahawks win in the Super Bowl…I think

Posted by David on January 20, 2014 in Football, Seattle |

Its been a full 24 hours since the epic 49ers-Seahawks NFC Championship game concluded. Today I drove Stone to see his special pediatrician in Oregon City so I had plenty of time to digest the contest and revurberations that resulted from Seattle beating the 49ers with a last-second defensive stand. I went into this game […]

Step away from the ledge Oregon Ducks football fans

Posted by David on November 24, 2013 in Oregon Ducks, Sports |

Many Oregon Ducks fans (myself included) were extremely optimistic that this would finally be the year they could break through and win that elusive BCS Championship. Heading into the season we had two potential Heisman Trophy candidates in Marcus Mariota and De’Anthony Thomas. Most of the offense from last year’s record-breaking team returned. There were […]

After further review…My final look at Oregon-Stanford

Posted by David on November 12, 2013 in Oregon Ducks |

I meant to write this post yesterday, but work and lack of sleep (Stone woke me up at 4 am) meant an early bedtime and no blogging. But now that sufficient time has passed and I’ve had to wade through the expected “expert” analysis of the Ducks loss at Stanford, I thought I’d offer one […]
