Good Luck, Devon --- and all Ducks in Rio

Interesting photo montage that the football team just tweeted out: Devon Allen, one of its football stars qualifying in the 110 hurdles in Rio this afternoon, and Devon (#13) with football fans. He's a cool guy -- fabulous sense of humor (from tweets he sends out, including a string of them a couple of years ago when some of the team got stuck in an elevator at a hotel they were staying in for some big championship game). Fast as the day is long.

Since NBC is useless, and nobody reported on twitter, I don't know where he placed in his heat this afternoon, but the important thing is that he qualified with a time of 13.41, well off  his fastest time this year of 13.03, which is the second fastest time in the world this year. Semi-finals and finals are tomorrow afternoon. Good luck! See you on the football field in September.
