Ducks Play Colorado for Redemption, Porky’s, and the Head of a Chicken

Kim Hastings Humor

Good morning, Duck fans. It is good to see you. I trust you have all had a pleasant and prosperous week. I’m a grown man, with a wife, kids, friends and much to anticipate. On a related note, a record number of people are getting hurt in their homes by falling televisions.

There were moments last Saturday I wished I was one of them.

But onward we forge. Boats beating against the tide, and all that. This week we play the Colorado Buffaloes. FishDuck.com exhaustively researched the Buffs of Colorado and discovered … these folks are nuts!

Speaking of governors, many people know the distinctive color on the Colorado State Capitol was created through the use of “Beulah Red Marble.” Most people don’t know Colorado’s 33rd State governor was

Beulah Balbricker from Porky's.

Ms. Balbricker was ushered into the Governor’s Mansion on a “Tell it Like it Is” platform when she came up with the perfect description for former Buffs head coach Rick Neuheisel.

I told you! This team has Porky's written all over it. How weird is that?

Beulah! Now was that nice?

People in Colorado are proud of their state traditions. In fact, in the town of Fruita, the town folk celebrate ‘Mike the Headless Chicken Day’. This is a real thing! A farmer named L.A. Olsen cut off Mike’s head on September 10, 1945, in anticipation of a chicken dinner — and Mike lived for another 4 years without a head.

Just like the 2012-2015 Beavers
