University of Washington vs. University of Oregon football today

Strange thing is that unlike many rivalries up here the two teams are from the same basic background: mainstream liberal institutions of higher learning. No great cultural divide, then, especially with most people from the Oregon side coming up from Portland as opposed to coming all the way up from Eugene. Not town vs. country. In practice, this means more folks who don't know their way around the area and are too polite in their driving to make timely decisions, and zero on street parking for me. Maybe I'm bitter about the on street parking thing.

Since when did people from Seattle and Portland care about football?

I kid, I kid. However, you have to remember that in Michigan we riot when college football games are lost to the opposing team.
