Oregon, our Alma Mater
We will guard thee on and on
Let us gather round and cheer her
Chant her glory Oregon
Roar the praises of her warriors
Sing the story Oregon
On to victory urge the heroes
Of our mighty Oregon!
Go Ducks Go!
Fight Ducks Fight!
Win Ducks Win!
It’s that time of year again.
We’ll wear our team colors. We’ll yell “OOOOOOOOOOOO” until we’re hoarse. We’ll do a little more drinking than usual. We’ll get to see our friends and family on a more regular basis than we do in the other 9 months of the year. We’ll eat Jell-o shots, drunken Gummi candy and other healthy food. We’ll buy ONE MORE Oregon cap. We’ll have ringing in our ears that will last until after Bowl season because Autzen Stadium really is that loud. We will recognize as we do every year that Oregon has the prettiest cheer squad. We’ll smile at the Duck because he’s awesome. We will laugh a lot more than we do on other Saturdays during the year. We will watch young men who are in better shape than most of us EVER were do stuff that most of us could never do. We’ll hold our breath when someone gets hurt, and cheer when they get back up again. We will say “Win the Day” and “Go Ducks” to each other until we are all a little green in the face. We will leave our umbrellas at home, not because it’s the polite thing to do in a stadium, but because:
IT NEVER RAINS IN AUTZEN STADIUM!!!
Welcome back, college football–we missed you.
