23.Nov.2009 An Ominous Sign for Beaver Faithful
I’m not into conspiracy theory, but I am a man of the world, and so as college football becomes more about old, crotchety white men cashing in on young, black kids, I keep my eyes wide and look for indicators that portend outcomes. For example, check this out:
The official Rose Bowl (travel) site has both an Ohio State and Oregon package.
Apparently, we lost the Civil War.
This is really my biggest fear. Even more than Masoli or James. It’s that there’s more money in having Oregon win (and U$C at the Sun or Holiday Bowl), and so we’ll see the phantom holding calls on Beaver TDs and the type of corrupt officiating we saw in the USC game. Should we preemptively write the commissioner and head of officiating and beg for a fair game? What kind of pressure can we fans place on the powers at be to just get a fair shot? Should we write the Rose Bowl committee and ask why they are selling Oregon and Ohio State packages when that fate has not yet been decided?
Or has it?
I think tomorrow I will call and ask for the nonexistent Oregon State package and see what they say. Actually, I suggest everyone do the same and we compare notes and then go from there. This is weird. Get indignant.
*NOTE* The Oregon package has been removed and it’s now just Ohio State. Go Angrybeavers.
