Happy Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.
The Washington Huskies notched a historic win against their most bitter rivals this weekend, enduring a pulsing, back-and-forth contest and coming away with a 36-33 win at home over the Oregon Ducks. And what a home it was. I’ve been going to games since the mid-80’s and it’s been a long time since I’ve seen Husky Stadium as loud, as passionate, and as majestic as was on display for the whole country to see on Saturday. It was a thing of beauty in every which way.

I had the good fortune of covering Washington-Oregon yesterday. It was one of the loudest, most riveting, most memorable games I’ve seen in person.— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) October 15, 2023
Michael Penix Jr. alone makes UW a legit title contender. https://t.co/Y1v4rJ97vGhttps://t.co/Y1v4rJ97vG
As Washington did after he entered the transfer portal, Oregon gave Michael Penix Jr. an opportunity to be legendary.— Ray Jr (@RaymondLucasJr) October 15, 2023

The joy that accompanies such a massive win is a good reminder that What Is Best In Life is not the open steppe, nor the wind in your hair...
There is one thing that is Best in Life: Crushing Your Enemies.
