This week is my wife’s birthday. She turns (#@#%* transmission garbled) years old. I wanted to get her the best birthday gift possible, so I did what any intelligent husband would do.
She said, “A trip to Hawaii sounds fun.”
I would have to sell my body a jillion times over to finance a trip to Hawaii.
I could see she would be little help. So I called around to see if anyone else had any ideas.
Rick Neuheisel: The former coach at Colorado, Washington, and UCLA thought I should take whatever I have and buy into a basketball bracket game.
Tyrone Willingham: The successful former coach at Stanford, Notre Dame, and especially Washington, was unavailable. He was cleaning Charles Fischer’s pool.
Jameis Winston: The presumptive first pick in the NFL Draft was helpful … in his own way.
But still I wondered what I could get for my wife that would make her really happy. Finally I hit on a plan.
… and whispered the words guaranteed to make a real woman leave claw marks on her man’s back.
Happy birthday, Jeri Deanne. Love FishDuck.com. P.S.: Charles is buying you a chinchilla coat.

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.”
FishDuck Salutes this Oregon Community…
I continue to be amazed at the quality of writing and the thought given to the posts/comments below the articles. I am very grateful that everyone has embraced the posting/commenting rules of this community as it has made my job a ton easier.
We have had as many as 3,000 posts a number of times before I ever have to delete one, and that just doesn’t happen on the web these days. My percentage of deletions to comments/posts is between one to two tenths of 1%, of which is stunning.
The new forum is delayed due to tech issues and my own life issues, but this Oregon Sports Community is going to be very special with the same rules and decorum that we presently see every day.
I salute you all for your thoughtfulness and respect toward fellow Duck fans. The Best is Yet to Be!
