Monday night football, January 12, 2015...University of Oregon Ducks versus Ohio State in the College Football Playoff championship. Our friends Susan and Darren invited us to their home to watch the game on their big-screen TV.
On our way over to their house we stopped for take-out Kentucky Fried Chicken, enough to feed seven. Darren and Susan's two sons were there along with one son's girlfriend. We had a combination of original and grilled chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw, corn, and biscuits. We arrived early enough to eat before game time. Susan made Cookie Sheet Cake for dessert and served it with vanilla ice cream. We feasted on everything.
At game time, I took the seat with a side view of the TV since I'm not into football. Darren supplied me with Wall Street Journal newspapers to read. I feel so informed after reading the WSJ. When I finished those, I read some of Susan's Entertainment Weekly magazines. Enough reading to get me through most of the game!
Bob is an Oregon fan, so he wasn't happy with the way the game went. He was hoping the Ducks would win the championship, since they haven't ever won it, especially since they have Heisman trophy winner, Marcus Mariota. It didn't work out this time.
About 10:45 we headed for home on mostly empty freeways.
