Tonight's the big night for Bob. He bought a ticket to the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. Right now he's at the game wearing green and yellow and cheering for the Oregon Ducks. It's halftime and the Ducks are up 20-7. Bob's probably hoarse from screaming by now!
He loves Oregon football and both of us love the Portland Trailblazers. Now that we're Texas residents, we also love the San Antonio Spurs. It's fun to root for some of the best teams in the NBA.
Oh, wait, I got side-tracked. I was talking about football. But really Bob should write this blog. He loves football and I know nothing about the game, except a touchdown is seven points.
I can tell you, though, people sure get worked up about their sports teams. Just yesterday, we had a camper in our park who came in a Hummer pulling a utility trailer (which they must sleep in). Outside his trailer he set up a Longhorns canopy with sidewalls and put a sofa, chair, and big screen TV...effectively making an outdoor living room.
Other people in our park are obviously Oregon fans and have their Oregon colors proudly displayed in front of their motorhome.
How about you? What teams do you cheer for? What kind of decorating do you do on big game days? Do you tailgate? Do you go to the games? Do you have an outdoor TV on your rig and invite other RVers to join you?
If you go on amazon.com, or any sports retailer for that matter, you can find all manner of game paraphernalia: logo grill covers, hot dog team logo brands, hostess party aprons with team colors and logos, chef hats, canopies, clothing, footballs, chairs, dartboards, plastic cups, coolers, car flags, lunch bags, the list goes on and on.
Displaying your sports team colors is a sure-fire conversation starter in a campground or RV park. Have some beer in the cooler and snacks on hand, you may find some new friends stopping by.
Alamo Bowl score is now 23-7 Oregon in the 3rd quarter. Go Ducks!!
Update: 4th quarter and Ducks are up 30-7. Looking good!
Did I mention I'm partial to the Ducks because my son graduated from University of Oregon? I'm a proud Duck momma.
Ducks win 30-7!!!!
Travel Bug out.
