On Monday The University of Oregon Ducks played in the National Championship game in Dallas. They lost the game, but Duck supporters are so proud of their team--Conference Champions, Rose Bowl Champions and their Heisman Trophy winning quarterback, Marcus Mariota!!
Marcus is from Hawaii, so I love to focus on anything interesting I can discover about him and his Hawaiian heritage. Did you know that the area code for Hawaii is 808 and Marcus has a custom facemask that reflects his beloved islands by showing the 808???
Do you see the big "0" in the center and the "8s" on either side?
Here's a photo of his actual face mask.

I am so proud of my alum football team and can't wait to see what they do next year! I also plan to follow Mariota in his NFL career--wherever he lands!
Here's to The Great 808!!
Aloha, and Mahalo for visiting!
