Oregon Trip 9/8/12 - Football and Family

During my vacation I took the time to go to Cottage Grove, Oregon to see my aunts and uncles... and to go to the Fresno State football game. Fresno was playing Oregon and my parents and I bought tickets to go... and my Aunt Vickii went as well as her son John and his son Eli. Nick was supposed to go but Casey has been up and down health wise lately and I didn't want to leave her with his friends. I would have worried too much about her and if something serious had happened I wouldn't want his friends to be upset. 

Here are the pictures, some are of my Aunt Vickii and Uncle Don's house and the others are from the game. We had no illusions about winning the game because Oregon is so tough.. but we played well. In fact in the 3rd quarter we held the ducks scoreless and caused them to turn over the ball 3 times! The other big thing is that they left their starters in the game the whole time which says they were worried about the way it was going. After the game, we talked to a bunch of the Oregon fans and they were really nice and had good things to say about the Bulldogs.

We were a bit early... like 90 minutes
During the game, we had 1 section with 55,000 people in yellow

 It was a great time and while it would have been phenomenal to win, we played hard and had fun. My voice was hoarse by the time we were done....
