August is Here, Do You Know What That Means?

footballAugust means a lot of things, but there’s one really awesome thing that August brings and that’s football!! I realize that it’s only the NFL preseason games, but if you’re a fan, you’re a fan and any football will work. So not only does the NFL start their first preseason game August 7th, but our Ducks and Beavers play their first games at the end of the month. The excitement is about to begin!
