Whether you like the new Hayward Field or not, it doesn’t matter — it’s here. The Phil Knight-funded track came with the cleverly named “Hayward Field Tower,” a 10 story tall shaft that supposedly tells the 100-year story behind Oregon track and field, according to the university.
But we like to call it The Phildo, one heck of a nugget suggested by our readers that pays homage to the man who was so instrumental in building the new facilities, as well as to the Tower’s distinctive shape. The so-inspired name conjures images of certain pleasure apparatuses, so when we saw that the University of Oregon had posted a photo on Twitter of a rainbow sprouting out of the tower, we just had to share — what they call in some businesses — the money shot.
Did you catch the rainbow/sunset combo last night? ???????? pic.twitter.com/BbHbyNvXxM
