Oregon Fan Settles Up

Following this year’s Iron Bowl, there were no doubt hundreds and hundreds of bets for Bammers to settle up on; this one in particular. But when it came to the BCS National Championship game, given the space between and the lack of office space shared by the two fan bases, bets between Auburn and Oregon fans were probably pretty rare. Welcome to the internet…

@WarBlogle follower, @jana0926 of jana’s thinking place, wasn’t going to let the continental divide stop her. Somehow or another she made a blog buddy, @iHubby, who just so happened to be an Oregon fan. The stage was set and the bet was simple. The fan of the losing team had to make a video proclaiming the winning team as the greatest thing since sliced Alabama defenses. We know what happened and we know who was left to make a video.

For @jana0926‘s account of the whole thing, go read her blog.

What is it with Oregon fans and hoodies? Goodness gracious.

Ummmm…it’s Oregon. It’s cold out here. Also “TheAuburnGirl” hit the nail on the head…if it’s not raining it’s snowing. You may have like 5 hats and about 20 different Auburn shirts but I have 2 hats 5 winter beanies and 4 sweatshirts. It gets cold at games. You do what you gotta do.

“That’s what she said” must have hit the West Coast two years later than everywhere else.

I think your math is wrong. “That’s what she said” is more than 2 years old. I was going to make a derogatory remark about how people in the south don’t get math cause they stopped learning it in grade school and so forth…but I thought I would be nice.

Plus, I think my humor would be lost on you.

Touchy, ain’t we?

The iHubby 03/21/2011 at 3:46 pm

Not at all. I think the rest of the West Coast would agree with me that we’re sick of hearing about how EVERYTHING gets out here so late and we are always behind. It’s probably like how you feel about everyone in the U.S. saying that people from the south marry their cousins…even though I am pretty sure that one is true with you.

Oh and to quote an outdated and crappy movie from 2004:

Umm…it’s March now. You’re late again. And I’ll have you know that my cousin is a very nice lady.

Well done! (I guess they wear hoodies cause it is cold and rainy in Oregon most of the time, except when it’s cold and snowing. ) I thought he was very gracious in defeat and good-natured about it, unlike most Bammers I know who had to do the same thing after they were destroyed in the Iron Bowl.

Thank you very much. The video was fun to make. It helped me with the grieving process that’s for sure!

Great game against a great team. Kudos to Jason for being a good sport and War Eagle back to him.

The iHubby 01/20/2011 at 12:32 pm

Both teams were great. In all honesty, I don’t think both of them played the same way they had been playing all year. They just didn’t seem to have that punch that they had all 12 games. But Auburn came out on top and they deserve it. But my Ducks are no longer known for just their uniforms. We can hang and we will be back!
