An Oregon Ducks Blog: Often Imitated, Never Duplicated, Always Fashionable
When he isn't analogizing Oregon football players to robots, sea creatures, and natural disasters, Matt Takimoto teaches elementary and middle school music. He started reading Faulkner's "The Sound and the Fury" in 2003, but can't seem to find the time to finish it, choosing instead to read "The Phantom Tollbooth" over and over again. He likes Irish whisky and sushi, hates wet socks and high places, and still can't understand why Ben Savage hasn't parlayed "Boy Meets World" into a Ryan Gosling-esque movie career.
Takimoto looks around the world of Duck sports, with track winning championships, softball grabbing national tournament seeds, and baseball prepping for a date with the rival Beavers.
