Civil War 2009: Pics Cuz It Happened


Um, wow.  I skipped much of the way home from Autzen, because it just felt like the right thing to do.  But all in all I had a wonderful evening.  And here's how it went:

After some pregame AtQ-ing and beer drinking, trumpetduck and I headed out from my apartment to Autzen.  Our first stop was the AtQ tailgate, where JConant, dvieira, JShufelt, Al Orange, DuckinNY, qrsouther, and axemen23 were hanging out.

These guys were hanging out too, and gorging themselves on tortilla chips Dom was tossing them.  After leaving the AtQ boys, we headed towards the Battle of the Bands at the Mo Center.  On the way, we found a KEZI broadcast, and T-Duck decided to test his journalistic chops.

If you've ever wondered what it looks like to be an trOMBone, this is it. 

 

Now as many of you know, I spent four years in the OMB.  I'm still connected with band, connected enough that I was on the band gatelist for the game.  On the gatelist + an OMB jacket = a field pass.  Long story short, I ended up getting a lot of high fives.

These were hiding underneath the running ad board.  Foreshadowing much?

Brandon Bair.  More on him later.

That would be my hand on the left and LeGarrette Blount about to high-five the shit out of it.  Crenshaw hooked me up too.

This is about where I was for the National Anthem and DuckVision.  Yeah, that's what's up.

The only appropriate caption is "Hey gurl heeeeey!"

 

Had to switch to video mode for the Ducks running on.  Supwitchugirl in the pregame DuckVision vid was brilliant.  And Kenny Wheaton scored.  All is well. 

Gametime go!

Touchdown LMJ!!!  Man, he's totes a redshirt freshman.  Wonderful.

I'm the worst at taking in-game pictures, so we flash forward to the fourth quarter and Uncle Phil on the field, probably tossing hundreds at anyone who walks be cuz he's a straight G and he'll do what he wants.

Awwww Duck, are those for me? You shouldn't have!

And then the Ducks do their best Oprah impersonation.  You get a Rose Bowl!  And you get a Rose Bowl!  Everybody gets a Rose Bowl!  Except you Keaton Kristick.  You don't get a Rose Bowl.

Many of you rushed the field.  I had third row seats next to the West Tunnel.  I was staying right the hell where I was.  Everybody walked by:

Uncle Phil

Katelynn Johnson.  Don't worry, nobody's throwing anything at you here.  Here, have a Rose Bowl.

Chip Kelly, undoubtedly on his way to pound a Corona before the postgame press conference.

The Duck, along with Rob Beard, Scott Grady, and Marvin Johnson.

Ed Dickson, getting his media on.  I saw you on Rome Eduardo, you may need a little interview work before the NFL.  Good to see you're getting practice.

Not to be outdone, LMJ gets some interview time.

The Melee.  Just amazing.

So I'm taking pictures of all that's going on, and somebody taps me on the shoulder and politely says, "Excuse me."  I turn around and who is it?

BRANDON EFFING BAIR!!!

I guess he thought a quicker way to the locker room than through the crowd was going into the stands and hopping the wall.  Fine by me, you're like 7 feet tall.  Do whatever you want Brandon Bair.
