As we approach the first-ever College Football Playoff, pitting the Oregon Ducks against the Florida State Seminoles, it’s becoming increasingly obvious most U.S. football fans across the country have embraced the boys from Eugene as “their” squad.
Are the Ducks America’s Team?
And what about the rest of the world?
In this New Year’s Eve video shot in the alpine wilds of Canada, FishDuck.com‘s foreign correspondent Randy Morse wanders the not-so-mean streets (well, the street) of Kaslo, British Columbia to see if there’s any interest in tomorrow’s big game in Pasadena.

Randy Morse (Editor and Writer) is a native Oregonian, a South Eugene High and U of O grad (where he played soccer for the Ducks, waaay back in ’70-‘71). After his doctoral work at the University of Alberta he launched a writing & publishing career – that plus his love of mountaineering has taken him all over the world. An award-winning artist, musician, broadcaster, and author, he’s written 8 books – his writing on media & democracy earned him the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting’s 2014 Dalton Camp Award. He swears he taught LaMarcus Aldridge his patented fade-way jump shot, and is adamant that if he hadn’t left the country (and was a foot taller) he would be the owner of a prosperous chain of fast food outlets and a member of the NBA Hall of Fame by now. If there is a more rabid Ducks fan in the known universe, this would come as a major surprise to Morse’s long-suffering family. He resides in the tiny alpine village of Kaslo, British Columbia.
