Oh Yes, And we did play a football game! Deputy Caitlin Plese started the scoring off with a 27 yard Field Goal for Oregon.
Randy Wells makes a great catch between defenders. Washington added a 35 yard field goal from Trooper Connor Schwilke to match Oregon.
These fans have the right idea… bring your own comfy chair! I see a great new Fad for next year’s Pig Bowl!
Officer Michael Waine of The Dalles Police Department looks downfield to make a pass. Later in the first half, Deputy Jeff Hall of Wasco County Sheriff’s Office tossed a backward pass to Michael Waine who then tossed a touchdown pass to Trooper Jason Walters of the Oregon State Police. Caitlin Plese kicked a 2 point conversion to put Oregon up 14-3 at the half.
Marcus Morgan of Morgan Auctioneers entertained the crowd at half time as he auctioned off a guided Klickitat River Fishing Trip, An autographed Richard Sherman Seattle Seahawks Football, a Bee Keeper Experience and a 12 Person Guided float trip on the Deschutes.
And one lucky fan took home an extra $350 from the 50/50 raffle.

23 Deputy Jeff Hall prepares to throw a block for 82 Officer Russel Spino. Deputy Jeff Hall later threw a Touchdown Pass to Trooper Jason Walters followed by another 2pt kick from Deputy Caitlin Plese giving Oregon the final lead 22-15.
Abigail Marble’s Brothers got in on the action for Washington with some sort of double lateral trickery that had Oregon Officers running around all confused.
Isaac, Ezekial and Josiah were simply no match for the stumbling, bumbling Oregon Defense.
With blue jersey’s lying just about all over the field, the young boys made it into the end zone and were given the appropriate congratulations from the rest of the Washington team making the unofficial score Oregon 22 Washington 21.
What a great team! Thank you to all of our Law Enforcement Officers and Pig Bowl Officials for another great year!

The Marble Family and The Anderson Family displaying their Big Checks in front of the awesome pig bowl collages by Marty Hiser of Westwind Frame and Gallery. The Actual Checks given to the family were in the amount of $20, 676.42 after more money came in following the initial count. Then after some late checks came in the mail we gave them each yet another $200.
Chase Anderson and Josiah Marble made great friends. Here they are seen patiently waiting for their dinner to be served at Canton Wok, courtesy of the Pig Bowl Board, an annual tradition following the check presentation.
Everyone needs a hug sometimes.
