Let’s Not Even Talk About That Game

I don’t wanna talk about that Rose Bowl thing, OK?

But in catching up on some e-mails from the past week, I did come across this column from Neil Rudel ’78, of the Altoona Mirror. It’s called “Peeking into Penn State’s ’09 fortunes” and it’s a tongue-in-cheek list of predictions for Penn State sports in 2009. My favorites:

“Dr. Wayne Sebastanielli is seen screaming at JoePa after the latter tries an onside kick in an August practice.”

And:

“JoePa makes more national news by coaching the entire game against Eastern Illinois from his back porch.”

One last note about the Bowl Game of Which We Will Not Speak: My 23-year-old nephew, Hunter, lives in L.A. and managed to get tickets to yesterday’s game. (Though he’s a Pitt grad, I’m pretty sure he was rooting for Penn State yesterday.) I told him that he had to promise to go up to at least one Penn State fan and ask if they were familiar with The Penn Stater magazine. He e-mailed me this morning to report: “I sat by a guy that said he reads The Penn Stater front to back. He did not stay the entire game.”
