Have you ever been to a University of Oregon volleyball game? When was the last women’s basketball game you attended? Acro/tumbling, anybody? When I was an undergrad and a graduate student at the O I attended every single home football game…and one half of one basketball game. When I think back on all those free tickets and good times I passed up to sit in my home in Springfield I cringe. Have you ever been to an Oregon sporting event that wasn’t a great experience? Me neither.
Ask a football fan what they love about home games and the answer is always the same. The atmosphere, the experience, the camaraderie. You know what creates those things? You do. The games are an opportunity that turn into an experience based on who shows up and how raucous they get. Wouldn’t it be fun to support the other Oregon sports teams and create more wonderful memories for fans and the folks on the playing surface? Go get some friends together, get some tickets, and get rowdy at the next women’s basketball game, Sunday at noon.
