A Message From DuckSportsNews.com

Update – October 10, 2007: Spc. Jourdan B. Smith and his wife, Erin, will be guests of the Aliotti family for the Oregon-USC game.  The Register-Guard’s George Schroeder writes about the outpouring of support and ticket offers from Duck fans in today’s paper.  “A Flag For Unnecessary Kindness”.

First of all, we would like to thank you for visiting DuckSportsNews.com or OneClickSportsBlog. Your visits have made our sites two of the most visited sites on the internet for news about University of Oregon athletics.

Second, when we started this enterprise, our goal was to help Duck fans find the best news about U of O sports in one place, with “One Click”. We could have automated everything, as some sites do. We could have had our computers do all the work. But we did not want to do that. We wanted all of our links to be hand-picked, because there are some stories, some perspectives that we knew would be missed. Are they stories specifically about Oregon sports? No. But they are stories any Duck fan would want to read.

And The Register-Guard’s George Schroeder presents us with another one of those stories today.

If you have not read “Lost flag was more than just a symbol”, it’s a must-read. Not only is it a great story, but it’s a must-read if the rest of this is to make any sense to you.

After reading Mr. Schroeder’s column, all I kept thinking was, “How could I show my appreciation to Spc. Jourdan B. Smith for his service?”. A “Thank You” to him, or anyone serving in the military, is a start.

But I think Duck fans can do better than that.

And I know DuckSportsNews.com visitors can do better than that.

We need to get Spc. Jourdan B. Smith his wife, Erin, tickets to the USC game. And I’m not talking just any tickets to the game. Duck fans pride themselves on having the best. The best facilities. The best stadium. The best fans. So, let’s start at the top.

Considering Spc. Jourdan B. Smith’s injuries in the service of our country, let’s get him and his wife tickets with Club Level access on the south side of Autzen Stadium. If you have never been up to the Club Level, the easiest way up there is either on the escalator or the elevator, which I’m sure Spc. Smith would appreciate. Would he accept other tickets to the USC game? No doubt. But let’s start big.

Am I challenging visitors to DuckSportsNews.com? You bet. But we’re also challenging ourselves because we’re not going to ask anything of our visitors we would not ask of ourselves. It would just be nice to have a Plan B if our efforts fail.

If you have two tickets available to the USC game, please contact us through OneClickSportsNews.com and we will make sure and forward it to the appropriate source. If you don’t, but know someone who might, copy and paste this link to them in an email.

Even though the USC game is still a few weeks away, I know we can secure Jourdan and Erin Smith a couple of tickets within the week.

Thank you for visiting DuckSportsNews.com. And thank you, Jourdan.
