Come on back. Don't be afraid. The writers are all dressed...mostly

Come on back. Don’t be afraid. The writers are all dressed … mostly.

Many of you have asked, “How does FishDuck.com do it? You guys are always so right on! It’s uncanny.”

Unerring analytical accuracy

We arrive at our conclusions through research behind the numbers.

And occasionally behind trees

And occasionally behind trees.

All designed to provide you with the tools you need to be the smartest person in the room.

Maybe not as smart as the guy who invented the camera/hammer. But close

But deep within the halls of FishDuck.com‘s global headquarters in its undisclosed location is the prognostication room. It is there that the magic truly happens.

Alakazam!

Tomorrow night our Ducks continue one of the strangest seasons in modern history when they take on the California Golden Bears.

$100 from Charles Fischer to the first commenter who can identify this bear.

Kim Hastings is a 1984 graduate of Northwest Christian College. He cut his journalistic teeth as sports editor of a paper in his home town of Fortuna, CA, and, later as a columnist for the Longview Daily News in Longview, WA. He saw his first Oregon game in 1977 and never missed a home game from 1981 until a bout with pneumonia cut his streak short in 1997. He was one of the proud 3200 on a bitterly cold night in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1989 for the Independence Bowl, and continues to be big supporter of Oregon sports. He is an active participant on the various Oregon Ducks messageboards as "TacomaDuck."

    I’m going to go with “What is the Highway 101 bridge over the Klamath River in Northern California?” for lunch on the Ale Trail as long as it’s Charles who has to wear the kimono.

      Better that I wear a kimono than the outfit for Sumo wrestling! (That would spoil lunch)

      Going into every article of Kim’s…I wonder if he will make me laugh-out-loud as he has so many times, this time did not disappoint. That was a pretty hilarious visual Kim….

      Writing humor is so hard to most of us–how you do it every week is–one of the Seven Wonders of FishDuck.com!
