Football Day at Duck U.!

It's college football season once again, and today was the first home game for the Duck U Ducks!  Beautiful weather, sunny, blue skies, just a hint of a breeze...

...and now, a screaming sunburn for yours truly.  And I was under cover most of the day, to boot... just imagine what it would have been like without the roof over my head!

Oh, the game?  The Ducks lost to the University of Duckbuque, 60-7.  Mind you, Duckbuque was the national champion in our school size, so it's not that Duck U is bad, it's just that we were overmatched. 

I hope.

(sorry the duckie is blurred... darn camera would focus on everything but him!)

1 You guys don't have a football stadium? That looks like an intramural field.

2 That picture is looking at the visitor's side of the field; just offscreen to the right are the stands on the home side.   So it's a bit more than an intramural field, but I can see why you'd think that from the photo.

Duck U. is a small school (1200 students, more or less)... we didn't even have football when I was a student there.  The homecoming game was men's soccer.  It wasn't until 2002 that we first fielded a football team.
