Welcome to the last weekend in July 2013! This year is more than halfway through, and the excitement of the NFL is brewing in the air. Training camp started in June for the rookies, and the first preseason game Hall of Fame game is Sunday, August 4th between Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins!
Of course fans weren’t short on news surrounding the NFL this summer when Aaron Hernandez found himself arrested for murder. The former New England’s Patriot star is also under investigation for two more murder charges. The drama just keeps coming.
One of our college football teams also made the news. The NCAA in late June placed Oregon’s football program on probation for three years and took away a pair of scholarships for recruiting violations during Chip Kelly’s watch. The disciplinary action does not include a bowl ban though.
With Chip Kelly gone everyone is eager to see if Mark Helfrich has what it takes to keep Oregon in the Top 5 long term.With De’Anthony Thomas and Marcus Mariota returning, the Ducks offense should rock once again. Let the games begin!
Greeley Avenue offers these beers on the rotating taps. These change once the last drop drains from the keg so hurry in if these are your faves:
- West Coast IPA from Green Flash Brewing
