GLENDALE, Ariz. Thousands of Oregon Ducks fans are sight-seeing in Arizona, as the team gets out the kinks during their final practice of the season before Thursday s Fiesta Bowl.
John Marston is a native Oregonian who opened up a Ducks-themed bar in Phoenix six years ago. Now that the Fiesta Bowl has brought Ducks fans to his new hometown, he s enjoying a surge in business this week. The Well Bar is located in the heart of the desert.
I just made it into a little dive bar, an Oregon bar, where Oregon fans could come and watch football on Saturdays, Marston said. It's like a little piece of home... like a cooler, exactly, that's exactly what it is.
The Ducks face Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl Thursday night. The game starts at 6:30 p.m., at the University of Phoenix in Glendale, Ariz. It will also be broadcast live on ESPN.
