    I don't read things that challenge my world view. But thank you to the Ducks fans anyway. Good form.

    Lol. Charitable donations like this just irks me. If you really cared about the kids you would just donate money with no primary goal of promoting your school.

    This. I got all bent out of shape about this last night. Nice of them, but do I really want to see a bunch of kids 20+ miles away from the CU campus walking around in Oregon gear? Ugh.....

    Maybe, but that kind of **** does always bug me. Like when a corporation donates stuff that just so happens to have their logo plastered all over it. I don't want to question anyone's good intentions, but when they do that, it makes me wonder what their true motivation is.

    All in all, though, it is a good thought and props to them for doing it.

    CU kind of has it's own problems to deal with. Our building had a flood gate so we were okay but the two buildings on either side of us were completely flooded. They are still cleaning the mess up today.

    It was free dammit. I wanted to wear CU stuff but they didn't want to give me free stuff.

    Maybe I should switch to direct TV.

    Nice gesture by the ducks. Now CU needs to donate a bunch of Buff stickers to cover up the Oregon logos on the donated items.
