Rose City Invitational

Post by PurplePrideTrumpet on Thu Feb 05, 2009 1:13 pm

Tickets are on sale tomorrow (Feb. 6) at Ticketmaster and the Pilot box office. Portland, Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii are playing downtown March 20-22. As long as we get some good weather, this should be pretty sweet.

Bump

So it's cloudy and it might rain, but there's a roof over the seats. Pilots play Hawaii at 3:30 and Oregon at 7 tonight.

Write up from the Oregonian, of course covering it from UO's perspective. What a great win for the Pilots!

The comments are more interesting than the Jeff Smith stuff. Try and remember these guys went to college, presumably.


I watched the duck game on TV. The TV announcers never noticed that the ducks couldn't get a hit on Pilot pitching. They just kept raving about the losing pitchers strikeouts. I finally stopped watching and turned on the Pilot audio broadcast.


Ducks now 8-10 -- Pilots 13-7

I really like tierhog's response to joefatone's post. Duck fans make for some great entertainment.

As far as the actual article goes, my favorite sentence is this one, "The Pilots, who are playing host to the event, stole the show on the opening day of the eight-game, four-team tournament."

So the Pilots stole the show which actually was theirs to begin with?

Um, Kilkenny is not a...what one guy called him. I love the logic being used: Someone comes on to say, "guys, maybe that last comment was out of line." The next reply is basically, "Hey, we were just defending the Ducks from a couple flamers, so shut the eff up." Laughing

Yes, the Duck pitcher was getting Ks, but Burris put together a fine outing.

Wow, I just re-read that article, well actually just the comments, and I must say, I LOVE Duck fans. Apparently they are the "flame" police, and they never "flame" on anyone else, but they defend their own. AWESOME!

Purplegeezer, are you Supergeezer, or is there a fleet of Geezers patrolling the internet, preaching maturity, grammar, and the utmost amount of knowledge in chatrooms/comment boards (yes, I am just kissing a$$ to try to get in the 1,000 post club early).

But seriously, is there anything more entertaining than reading people's comments/posts online? I mean, I barely passed college writing (thanks John Orr) but seriously, what happened to grammar? Do people think the more red squigglies under their post the better?

It's even better when you sit through a cold night to watch it.

The Ducks are holding the last two games of their series with OSU next weekend in Portland. There have already been about 10,000 seats sold for each game.
Shocked

Impressive... Is the beer garden open? cuz that seems like a necessity to make it through this first season of Duck baseball...

Yeah, it is kind of a new oddity for Duck fans.... Although haha I don't envy that their automatic in-state rival has won 2 national titles the in last few years, but you gotta start somewhere...

The maturity of commenters on most news sites is astounding! I just loved reading the MLS stories on O Live

Why else do you think the PN got started up in lieu of the O boards??

Seriously, besides the fact that I LOVE Pilot athletics, I love that I can read and comprehend almost every post on here and don't have to read text messaging and/or incomprehensible babble.

When I recently joined PN, it was stressed to me that txt language and informal shorthand were not the standard. I think it makes for more intelligent conversation.

"Intelligent conversation" on the OLive sports boards? That does not compute.

The lone exception is the Winter Hawks forum, which is the "unofficial official" Hawks forum, mainly because it's been around so long. Lots of really good discussion and intelligent posters there, seriously.

PPT,

I'm sure you're right about the OLive boards, but I was talking about PN, just to clarify.
