I didn't go to the game, but I sure did watch it on ABC. At 12:30 p.m., Jeff and I arrived at a friend's house in Northwest Portland with champagne, orange juice, chips and dip, and for four hours we sat on the couch in our jerseys rooting for Darron Thomas and "Big Balls Chip" to lead our team to victory.
Later that night, fans wearing green and yellow swarmed the city. And at Gypsy, a 23-year-old took the opportunity to show his undying pride for the Ducks during his karaoke number: He shouted "Go Ducks" over and over again instead of singing the song he'd picked.
And the audience loved it.
