I just turned the game off. I appreciate how efficient Oregon is playing this year, but I must admit it's really boring if you're not a Duck fan.
Stones River Battlefield, that's pretty cool. My friend's brother is really into the civil war and has been to literally every major battle field n the south. I guess it helps that he lives in Alabama. I've always wanted to check out Nashville. I've been to Tennessee a few times but the first two I was fairly young, 13 and 15, and the 3rd time, just a few years ago, I was just passing through. I found the area of the state we passed through to be incredibly beautiful though.
I think you find The Ducks "really boring" because, a) you're a fan of a Pac 10 team other than the Ducks. And more importantly, b) you're a fan of Oregon's biggest rival. I've talked to people from different parts of the country, fans from different conferences, and they've all said they enjoy watching Oregon and find their brand of football very exciting. I will give you that it does get boring toward the end of the game, but really anytime you're watching blowouts it's going to get to a point where it gets boring....especially if you're not a fan of that team.
Hey UCLA did do one thing last night no team has been able to do against the Ducks this year...score points in the 4th quarter. So they have that going for them.
