Tonight is the Big Game between the Oregon Ducks and the Auburn Tigers to decide the college football national champion. I don’t really follow college football, and I have some mixed feelings about the impact of major sports on universities, but I’m willing to put all that aside for a game like this. I’ll definitely be watching tonight.
Big games like this transcend sport. They bring our state together and these days we need all the common cause and unity we can get.
This morning on my ride into the office I saw Tommy Brooks and his daughter biking down N. Vancouver Ave. Tommy, a lawyer (and BTA Board member) who works downtown, is an Oregon Duck alum and he wore his team jacket with pride.
