If things go well I might be showing her my O-face

oregon-ducks.jpgThis is just silly. A woman in Eugene, Oregon is embroiled in a battle with the University of Oregon over the school’s football stadium. Specifically, McKay Sohlberg is pissed off about the big three-story “O” that’s plastered on the side of Autzen Stadium.

The “O” sign rises like a neon moon over the tops of deciduous trees as seen from Sohlberg’s high, south-side home.

Reader Amy, who tipped us off to the story, summed the situation up thusly:

Now I’ll admit that I’m a huge Duck fan, so I may be biased, but seriously — don’t live in a football town and think you’ll be able to escape it entirely. The citizens of Eugene and fans of Oregon everywhere are proud of their teams and the UO won’t likely be told by the city that the “O” has to be removed. The woman doesn’t even actually care that the “O” is there, as evidenced by the fact that there is a 50% larger “O” on the stadium that is going unpetitioned against. It is simply that she can see it. Little pathetic….

Go Ducks!

I live in Eugene, (Hi Amy!) and I have to say... I really hate the Ducks. I don't care how petty this motion is, it made me smile.

The university is so ridiculously pretentious, being that it's really only known for grandstanding and horrible football uniforms. As far as I'm concerned, anything that gives president David B. Frohnmayer a headache is at least a little worthwhile.
