In our neck of the woods, Medford Oregon, otherwise know as the Rogue Valley, or Southern Oregon, or the “State of Jefferson,” we love our sports. In recent years, South Medford High School Basketball has become especially popular. Why, because of the quality of the program and quite notably, brothers—Kyle and EJ Singler. Kyle Singler is now a senior at Duke and EJ Singler is a sophomore at University of Oregon, both continuing in some amazing basketball. So you might think this post is a little off topic for my blog…well actually, it fits right into my design and art skills, so I have decided to share with all of you who may be fans of Oregon or Duke or both. Yes, Oregon Ducks are currently ranked number one in the US for Football and the Oregon State Beavers are doing extremely well also. Both teams are well followed in Oregon, but I am now looking forward to next month, when basketball begins. At the Rose Garden, in Portland, on November 27, 2010, the Duke Blue Devils and the Oregon Ducks will come face to face, brother to brother in one downright exciting game. The big question is—for those of us in Southern Oregon who love and follow both teams—what do you wear to the game to support both teams—and there will be fans for both teams—almost 900 block tickets were ordered through South Medford High’s Coach Murphy for this game in particular.
So, I was approached by a friend to create a t-shirt that dual fans could wear to the game. A “Devil of a Duck Fan” was born. We cheer both teams. We love both teams. We look forward to college basketball season with wonder and excitement. And we look forward to the Rose Garden in Portland for one awesome Duck vs. Blue Devil game!
If you are a “Devil of a Duck Fan” you will might want a t-shirt, printed with the design below—design removed for legal reasons— to show your dual pride. Unfortunately, we can not print this design because of copyright infringement. You may be a “Devil of a Duck Fan,” but I can not print this shirt for you. Too bad, we had many people who wanted to wear this design to the game. We are Fans and we will be decorated to show our pride!
