Bill Cosby rocks an Oregon Ducks jersey (pic)

Have you always wondered what comedy icon Bill Cosby would like in an Oregon Ducks football jersey? Wait, you have? Seriously? Well. I suppose today is your lucky day.

The following photo of Cosby was posted by the Go Ducks Twitter account. It features the comedian wearing a dark green Josh Huff — or, as the NCAA would probably prefer me to phrase it, “UO Player No. 1″ — jersey.

Okay, three quick responses:

1) Come on, Oregon. You have Bill freaking Cosby in the house and you don’t even give him one of the zany jerseys? That’s lame.

2) I love the use of the “National Brand” hashtag, mainly because it tries to convey the idea that Cosby just bought one of these jerseys on his own whim, unable to resist the power of the Oregon brand. Because that definitely happened. In no way was the jersey given to Cosby upon his arrival at Oregon’s campus so as to create a photo-op. Nope, the Oregon brand doesn’t need such shady tactics to spread.

3) Whatever happened to supporting the Oregon State Beavers, Mr. Cosby? Hm?
