Birds of a feather shop together: Duck gear in demand
EUGENE, Ore. - Duck, duck, swoosh: With the countdown to kick off Saturday, Oregon football fans have plenty of Duck gear from which to choose.
"A lot of stuff," said fan Robin Detmer at the Duck Store. "Amazing amount of stuff, yeah."
Duck fans were out-and-about Tuesday grabbing new gear for game day.
"I love it," alumna Ashley Baker said. "It's so much fun. Can't wait till the first game, just less than 5 days!"
And if you can put a bird on it, somebody has emblazoned it with a duck, too.
New this season: the "Fast and Feathered" spirit shirt. The slogan won from over 2,300 entries. A portion of the purchase price goes to causes closely entwined with the football team.
"One dollar of each spirit tee sold goes to support the cheerleaders and the band," said Katie Conway, marketing team leader at the Duck Store.
