RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
My OSU daughter has no patience with my husband and I and our love for the San Diego Chargers and the San Diego Padres. It's our hometown for all four of us (including my son) so I tell her we have no choice.
I've tried to explain that for us, watching sports is like recess for adults. It's fun: pure and simple. We don't it doesn't "matter" or "count" like things in the real world and that's most of the appeal.
We try not to get too down when our teams lose (which is often) but we try to enjoy every moment of it when we win. And yes, it is a LOT more fun when you win.
This year, the Ducks have been a joy and a much welcome break from the pressures and tensions of daily life. I'm an alum from San Diego State (Go Aztecs!) and they'll be in the Poinsettia Bowl.
But once the seasons are over, what's left? Politics? Oh, Lord help us all...
