I guess I would probably have to post more often to do so, if only I was like Stonehouse and did not have a real job, or extra cirricular activities...

Oh man... where's the love, MattyWizz? You know I am home all day working on Geo Sketch Pad. And my extra curriculars include collecting Otis Nixon's Twins cards.

EDIT: Oh and I forgot to add... you would have been proud of me last night. Sean and I were listening to some Busta Bust. That's right... "my flip mode squad is dangerous, so dangerous..."

Oh man.... Is this Serious? Are you gonna make me delerious?

But anyway I would like to echo the sentiment on the forum, its pretty gosh darn legit, and everyone definitely does their best to keep everything accurate as possible, not to mention informative!!!

(Sorry about all the blazer talk 7587... but to be honest I tune out any oregon football talk, PilotNut knows my dirty dark secret as to why...)

Anyway but yeah, the cult like dedication I saw from guys like Stonehouse, Rochin54 and mattywizz make becoming a pilots fan so much easier and fun. Haha and I know the athletes see it too, whether that be them getting asked to autograph a notebook in the middle of Biology (Thanks Christine!), have a couple beer tasters raised in your honor (Sorry about that wozzy, haha but i guess the whole not being in the olympics did have one perk that came in beer sampling nirvana), etc. etc. People love their Pilots, and I know from conversations the players appreciate all the support... The heart and love for/from the fans for the smallest school in division 1 is something to definitely be proud of!!


Alas I'm rambling, and in the words of Casey Frandsen "Peace... I'm out!!"

It'll be fun to see the next round of regulars join us this season, I definitely see this thing just continuing to grow. Any word on how the new girls are looking out there on the practice field?

That is called flyfishing the Deschutes for steelhead, and it's time to get over there and do it again!

I'd just like to see the effort for the Men's soccer team. I guess I just can't understand why it doesn't get the same following.

We are lucky; so far I have only had to delete a couple posts (i could count them on one hand... and have a few fingers left over) and havent banned anyone.... yet, anyway.... Suspect

Most agreed on the "We are lucky" part. I've only had to delete one or two posts myself. I will say this: If any of you see something you think is objectionable, don't hesitate to let one of us Admins know. We'd be glad to deal with it!

It is the lower Deschutes, where access is pretty much limited to boat, bike or foot. It is a terrible place; too many bugs, too much wind, too many snakes. I am sure people would not enjoy going there. :face:

Another smart move by the Marketing department, not sure if anyone else bit but my wife sure did on the gameday fan shirt. Good concept, the wording on the shirt says "We declare this Pilot Country" with the Villa Drumsquad flag in white on a purple t-shirt. I hope that this effort works... how intimidating would 5,000 Purple shirts on crazy people be for the Cal schools?

Except they are shooting for a White Out at the UCLA game and those shirts are purple.

They will be giving away white shirts for the "first [certain number] people through the gates" for the UCLA white out... not sure how many they will give out, but I think it will be a significant number.

They are offering the Gameday shirt with the basketball season tickets, too. I am glad to see it. anything to finally get some decent UP apparel out there...

It's the first 1000 fans who get a free Tee shirt from Comcast at the UCLA game.

This is over my head - (being 4'10", alot of things are over my head!).

What exactly is a "White Out" - and how does it supposedly intimidate the opponent?

A "white out" (or "black out", etc) is where all of the fans wear the same color... it has a very nice effect for the TV cameras; a sea of the same color. It also tends to fire up the crowd and make them even more boisterous (a.k.a. louder!). Comcast probably donated the shirts as part of the deal to televise the game. I havent seen the shirts, but heard that they are plain white, and have the Comcast logo on the back and some sort of Pilots logo on the front.

I remember Penn St. having a "White Out" at a football game (was it last season?) that was amazing... just a huge sea of white at every camera angle...

Thanks for the info on "white outs" guys.

And nice pic, geez. It is rather strange to see all those people in white shirts.

Suppose that could help unite a crowd. Although there's nothing like an early goal or two to really drive a crowd, (especially at Merlo), into a frenzy!
