I want to present a very special guest today. I wanted to get inside the psyche of a rival. I had to search long and hard to find one, but I was able to find a real live Beaver fan. Beaver fan agreed to be interviewed for the blog. We thank him very much for his time. Here is the conversation that transpired:
ATQ: Beaver fan, thanks for taking the time to talk to us today
BF: My pleasure. Its nice to be recognized.
ATQ: So why don't you start off by telling us a bit about last week's game?
BF: Well, you have to be pleased. I mean, we were really worried about that Idaho State game. Its really important to get that big non-conference victory to set the tone for league season. Idaho State finished seventh in the Big Sky last year--and the Big Sky is a REALLY good conference, so we were just happy to escape that with a W. We already have Portland State on the schedule for next season. That game has land mine written all over it.
ATQ: Sounds like a barnburner. How about attendance. Attendance for that Idaho State game was fairly low. Why has OS had trouble drawing fans in spite of the Reser expansion.
BF: Chad Johnson is a Beaver! Oregon has nobody in the NFL as good as Chad Johnson.
ATQ: I don't see what that has to do with anything, but answer this for me. Exactly how many credits did Chad Johnson earn at OS?
BF: ::stares blankly::
ATQ: How often did Chad attend school?
BF: Chad Johnson is a badass. He's soooo much better than loser Harrington.
ATQ: I see. We'll just move on. How about the Cincinnati game?
BF: BYU, BYU!
ATQ: I'm sorry, what does BYU have to do with this?
BF: 30-28. Scoreboard!
ATQ: Obviously the Cincinnati game is a sore point. Lets move forward.
BF: Hang on, I have to check up on my sheep.
BF: I have to run out to my truck for a second. Hang on.
ATQ: ::confused:: Okay?
two minutes later
BF: ::zipping up pants::
ATQ: Yeah, um, what are your hopes for Pac-10?
BF: You know that the `ucks are going to freefall. Duck fans always talk big, then the season implodes. Its only a matter of time, Duckies!
ATQ: Actually, I was wondering about the Beav-
BF: 30-28. Scoreboard, baby!
ATQ: I can see where any football talk is going. Lets talk basketball.
BF: What is this basketball?
ATQ: You know, orange ball, hoops, the Beavers have a team.
BF: We do?
ATQ: Yeah, I'm pretty sure.
BF: Interesting, I've never noticed.
ATQ: That's okay, I can see how that would happen. Not many people around the country have noticed Beaver basketball lately.
ATQ: Excuse me?
BF: We're a baseball school!
ATQ: Great, I'd love to talk baseball. You know the Ducks are getting a team.
ATQ: Seriously. We've got a coach and everything.
BF: ::tears stream down face::
BF: It was nice while it lasted. Uncle Phil gives you guys all the nice things. Its not fair.
ATQ: There, there. It will be okay. Why don't you go give your ram a hug.
BF: Yeah, I think I'd like that.
Thanks to Beaver fan for joining us. Next time, we'll attempt to find a Husky fan.
