If you've ever gone to a football game at Autzen Stadium, you know this familiar chant: "It never rains in Autzen Stadium!" 

 

Don Essig, the stadium voice of the Oregon Ducks for the past 45 years has written a book with that chant as the title, because it was his brainchild.  "It’s a biography. Starting up growing up on a farm, all the way through my teaching and principal experience, my consulting experience, and my announcing experience. I actually started announcing 50 years ago, at high school games. I just finished year 45 with the Ducks football, starting 46 with basketball."

 

Essig says his most memorable moment was the Kenny Wheaton interception in 1994, against the Washington Huskies, that sent the Ducks to the Rose Bowl.  Ever since then the crowds are bigger and more "pumped up."

 

Essig will be at the Oregon Duck Store in Bend Tuesday from 4-6 p.m. to sign his book "It Never Rains in Autzen Stadium."
