Oregon residents are ecstatic that the University of Oregon Ducks made it to the Rose Bowl this year! Everyone, where I live, is behind Oregon today! ...And I'm an Ohio State graduate, and fan.
It may look like I'm wussing-out by hanging my OSU sweatshirt and UO colors together--afraid that my house would be egged if show my allegiance to the Buckeyes--but the truth is, I'm interested in this game, and I'll be happy for the team that wins as long as it's a good game. I'm always excited by Ohio State football, and this year I'm also caught up in the local frenzy of Oregon pride. So, GO BUCKS! GO DUCKS! Play well and take it down to the wire--make it a good game!
Why tell the story? It's a snapshot of a special day in Oregon sports history, which could be misinterpreted by my friends and neighbors today, and mean nothing when my grandchildren find it. Is it important? Probably not to preserve; my grandchildren don't need to know that I didn't care who won the Rose Bowl in 2010. But I'm sharing it on my facebook page today so people understand that I'm rooting for a good game, and I'm excited for BOTH TEAMS!
Happy New Year! Be safe. And when you take your pictures today or you upload your pictures from last night's festivities, consider making a digital scrapbook storybook so you can give the pictures some personality with details about the people, places, and events you felt like capturing in photos. Heritage Makers has several ways you can document your New Years celebrations, as do Snapfish, Shutterfly, My Publisher, Walgreens.com, and other sites. I can help you decide how to showcase your pictales if you email me.
P + S is BEST!
