Sorry to mix some sports with technology talk, but one of my biggest passions starts again tomorrow with the kickoff of the Oregon Ducks football team’s 2010 season.
Last season started terribly with the horrific lost to Boise St. featuring “the punch” by LeGarrette Blount, but it ended up with a Pac-10 championship and trip to the Rose Bowl. Who knows what’s in store for 2010 although there are high hopes for the Ducks once again.
My passion for the Ducks started very early on with my parents taking me to Duck games in the 80s when Autzen Stadium was half empty and the team was terrible. We could lay down in the bleachers, play touch football in the walkways, and not really need to pay that much attention to the game as the Ducks were usually losing so bad.
That’s what’s made the last 15 years of Duck football so fun, is that the success tastes so much sweeter when you have to experience the pain. Reminds me of a startup in some ways….
