What's a Nittany Lion anyway


I have avoided this topic over the last week. Our papers and broadcast media are flooded...it is a tragic set of circumstances and events on many levels and in many lives here in the Keystone State. I was never a big fan of this school but have many friends who went there and who are huge fans. Ironically, I am technically some kind of half-assed alumni( a notion I resist and protest with great resolve) since my Law School was purchased lock,stock and barrel by this monster institution in center County. A colleague who hails from Eerie,Penna. sent this image this morning and I thought it was shameless but clever...to the point that I thought it worthy of sharing with my small and deeply troubled set of followers.

In the meantime...all is still well in the Pennsylvania Valley of college football that is still happy.....GO Lehigh!

You and I are in the same camp... Not a fan in the least, but it's close to home and I agree there is a lot of unfortunate scenarios that have played out because of it. I've stopped reading about it at this point. Too much speculation and not enough facts.

I'd love to share this image further; however, the provider of my meals and nookie is a die-hard PSU fan and would probably cut me off of both:)

I think there is some lesson in this mess about granting coaches and athletes demigod status, but that's probably something to reflect on later.

I'm sick of the ESPN sportscasters. They dug deep this time. Overused metaphors. Sentimental drivel. Life lessons from Sports Center desk. Makes me miss the days of Jon Miller and Joe Morgan. And, that's something I never thought I'd say.
